You know how there are some recipes you love and then, for some reason stop making for a while?
This artichoke spinach dip was one of them. When it comes to hot dips, I've pretty much made this jalapeno popper dip exclusively for the last three years.
Then, I made it for some event just before Ani's birthday, so when Ani's first birthday party rolled around, I didn't want to make that again, so I dug out this recipe instead.
And it was the first thing scarfed down. Bart and I kept saying, "I forgot how good this is!"
It's super easy (although sometimes I make it a little more difficult by cooking fresh spinach myself instead of just using frozen), and it's always a hit.
