The Best Spinach Dip Ever!


As everyone is preparing to bring in the New Year this weekend, I thought I would share a couple of great recipes that would be perfect for your New Year party.

I love Spinach and Artichoke Dip and eat it more often than I probably should.  I have this amazing no-fail recipe that is quick, easy, gooey, cheesy, and oh so delicious.

But as good as this recipes is…..there are some  people that don’t like artichokes.  My brain can’t even process this as being a possibility,  but I have heard it is so.

At this point I will offer an excellent alternative…..This wonderful, warm, and creamy Spinach Dip.  I will even go so far as say this it is the best I have ever had and it is requested at all of our blogger events.

A coworker made these Swedish Meatballs at an event our park hosted several years ago.  They were such a hit that we continue to make this meatballs at all of our events and we always carry home an empty dish.

They are so easy to make and are perfect for a quick meal or if you are looking for something to throw in a crock pot.

You can eat them as a stand-alone meal or add to past or rice.  It’s also the perfect dish if you are looking for something to carry to a potluck.  Be ready to give out the recipe because someone will ask for it.

Who doesn’t love spinach and artichoke dip ? Ok, well I know a few people who don’t ,  but there is just something wrong with them.

I order this dip almost every time I eat out.  I have been making it for several years and have tried a variety of recipes.  Some really simple, and some very elaborate.  I have added and substituted ingredients until I have come up with a simple and delicious version.    If you want to give it a try, here is the recipe:


The Best Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers Ever!

I use this mixture in a lot of recipes but I originally started using it to stuff Jalapeno peppers.  If you like this mixture, check out my stuffed squash & zucchini recipe here.  Even people that don’t like squash will like it prepared this way.

The best part of this recipe is that the stuffing consist of only three ingredients.  Sausage, cream cheese, and cheddar cheese.  It just doesn’t get any easier than this!
