I had just put this casserole in the oven when my husband walked in the door from work today. The first words out of his mouth were "Man, something sure smells good!".

Artichoke Spinach Dip

Apparently I'm in the mood for all my favorite restaurant foods. As I am dealing with somewhat of a post-Christmas deficit in my bank account and cannot go out to eat, I'm recreating them at home. Artichoke Spinach Dip is pretty much a perfect food in my opinion. If I could get away with eating… Continue reading Artichoke Spinach Dip
