Between Thanksgiving and the Super bowl, savory appetizers are pretty much a main course in our home. I could put out a spread like this every single daily and my family would be thrilled.

This Parmesan, Spinach and Artichoke Dip served cheesy and hot is a slight twist on a familiar favorite that I usually make. Typically, this recipe is made a bit creamier by using mayo instead of cream cheese, but I wanted to lighten it up a bit and used low fat options.  Both are delicious and I will post the alternate recipe soon. It’s really a matter of preference for which is better.

For many of our family gatherings, I ask my mom to make a cold Spinach Dip and we serve it in a bread bowl. I’m typically a bit too lazy to do that, but this dip would be a beautiful presentation in a bread bowl, served with crusty bread chunks.

I don’t even like spinach (except in salad form) and I love these dips. They’re hearty and always go quick, so be ready.


Before I get to the most important part of the post, I just had to share this gorgeous photo. Have you ever considered how beautiful artichokes are? I mean, really (but no, I won’t eat it like that. ;))


I hope this tops your next party list. You will not be disappointed.
