Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip

I used to be kinda opposed to Hot Spinach Artichoke Dip, just on principle…and here’s the deal: Back in the ’80s, it was all about the Creamy Knorr’s Spinach Dip and it was served warm or cold in a bread bowl. I loved that stuff! And I remember how fancy we all thought it was, too. Then in the ’90s, it was all about the Hot Artichoke Dip. It seemed that just about every restaurant had a version. It was everywhere! And I loved that stuff, too! Of course, I’ve always had a thing for artichokes, and guess who else in the house does? Homer, my cat. She goes nuts over them. She can smell even the canned artichokes in the grocery bag and immediately comes running!

Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa

Now that summer is just about here…we hope…it’s time to think about those snacks we’d like to have out on the deck on a balmy evening. Chips and Salsa, I’m thinking. And one of my favorite summer recipes is a Salsa Fresca, a classic Pico de Gallo. Particularly Chipotles Classic Pico de Gallo Salsa. Maybe even with a cold, slushy Margarita. But that will have to be another post.
