Last night one of my dear friends came over. Last week when we were hanging out we decided that we both needed to cook more, so now whenever we hang out, we are planning on cooking. Last night we decided to make Alton Brown’s Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip.
This dip was really easy to make and was also so delicious! I think it was a little too “artichoke-y” but John thought it was perfect. We bought some pita bread and baked in the oven at 400 degrees for about 10-15 minutes so it would be crunchy. Recipe to follow.
Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip
Show: Good Eats
Episode: Dip Madness
1 cup thawed, chopped frozen spinach
11/2 cups thawed, chopped frozen artichoke hearts (I used a 12 oz jar)
6 ounces cream cheese
1/4 cup sour cream
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup grated Parmesan (I used between 1/2-3/4 cup)
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (I omitted)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
Boil spinach and artichokes in 1 cup of water until tender and drain. Discard liquid. Heat cream cheese in microwave for 1 minute or until hot and soft. Stir in rest of ingredients and serve hot.
Hello out there? Is anyone still reading this? I am so so sorry for the lack of updates this past few weeks. I recently got a small job promotion which has completely limited my use of internet for blogging purposes. 😦 But have no fear! Thursday afternoon I have wonderful people coming to install internet at my house!! (IT only took a year of your constant nagging reccomending CB)Yay!! So, hopefully I’ll get back into the blogging groove and I can start updating more often.
So today is John and mine’s 1 year anniversary!! I have the top tier of our wedding cake defrosting in our fridge, so let’s hope it tastes good!! I wrapped it up really good, so it at least has a chance at tasting alright. In case you want to see a glimpse of my wedding, here’s a litte highlight film that my videographer made for me.
Alex Dunn did an amazing job with my wedding. If you need a videographer and are in Arizona, try him, he’s great!!
