Back in the day, when I attended and hosted many get-togethers, thiswas one of my main party staples. And everybody always raved. I adore this dip. It is almost too dangerous for me to make in these trying-to-lose-baby-weight times because I know I will want to sit and eat the entire batch all by myself. I can usually dig up a few morsels of self-control and at least share a couple bites with with my husband. Aren't I generous?

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a medium bowl, mix together:

1 8-oz. package cream cheese, softened

1/4 cup mayonnaise

1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese

1/4 cup grated romano cheese

2 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 teaspoon dried basil

1/4 teaspoon garlic salt

Salt and pepper, to taste

Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip

Stir in one 14-oz. can of drained, quartered artichoke hearts.

Mash the artichoke hearts with the edge of the spoon as you stir, to break them into smaller pieces. Or you could chop them beforehand, but I'm lazy and the spoon-mashing is a much easier route.
