A Super Bowl party is not complete without WINGS for most people, but for me it’s MY Spinach Artichoke Dip! Over the years it has become my signature dish. I make it on holidays, office parties, birthdays & THE SUPER BOWL! I have been asked for this recipe over and over again and initially I would never give it out. Now is the time!
I wanted to hoard my delicious dish and keep my tasty secret! Well, the original recipe wasn’t mine to begin with. I tasted this dish at a party over 10 years ago and went crazy! I loved it so much, I hovered over the bowl the entire night. The host gave me the recipe and A SPINACH DIP MAKING QUEEN WAS BORN! (recipe below)
