Easy Crockpot Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe {VIDEO}

One of the first party foods I perfected when I started experimenting in the kitchen was Spinach Artichoke Dip. This crockpot version is a knock-off of that irresistible party staple that I brought to many a party back in the day. I still remember the first time I saw someone take a bite and express utter enjoyment.

Omelets On the Go Recipe

Dark grey clouds that hung low in the sky smacked down my lofty dreams for this post. It won't be nearly as cool to tell you about what I had planned as it would have been to pull it off. I'll try. On-the-go breakfasts are awesome! Everyone is in a hurry in the morning, right? I thought of skydivers, who get up with the birds to jump out of airplanes.

This post is part of a Foodbuzz Tastemaker program with Sabra. Have you tasted Sabra hummus? If not, you must. It is my absolute favorite brand of hummus, hands down.

Scary Juice Recipe (AKA Healthy & Delicious Green Smoothie!)

This juice might look scary to little ones, but it is DELICIOUS! And HEALTHY! Drink up!

The only reason I have labeled this juice as "scary" is because that was my three-year-old's reaction to it. When I asked him if he wanted to try a sip, a frightened look came over his face and he said, "No, thank you!" as he ran quickly into another room. At least he was polite about it! As scary as it might appear to a toddler, it is honestly far from it.

I'm not always good about eating fruit in the winter, so this is an easy and totally yummy way to drink some good vitamins and nutrients.

Place the following ingredients into a food processor:

1 cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks

3 kiwis, peeled and quartered

2 handfuls of fresh spinach

1 apple, peeled and cored

A long drizzle of honey

Process until smooth, chill and enjoy your non-scary Scary Juice!

Veggie Cheese Stromboli Recipe

Veggie Cheese Stromboli Recipe

The first time I ate stromboli was a few years ago at 3:00 in the morning after a night out in Fort Myers, Florida. And oooohh my, did it taste delicious! Our friend's mother had made it for us, knowing we would likely be hungry when we got back to her house. My husband and I often reminisce about that late-night meal and immediately we are both salivating as badly as our 6-month-old drool machine, Sammy.

Cheesy Spinach Artichoke Dip Recipe

I adore this hot, creamy Spinach Artichoke dip! This classic appetizer is great for a party or before a holiday meal with family. The dip is bursting with all the expected ingredients plus three kinds of cheeses. This is a party staple that your guest will be sure to rave about!

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

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.

Stir in 1/2 cup frozen chopped spinach, drained.

Transfer the mixture to a small, lightly greased baking dish.

Top with 1/4 cup shredded mozzarella cheese.

Cover and bake in preheated oven for 25 minutes, or until bubbly and lightly browned.

Doesn't this look delicious? Well, it is! Make it and bring it to the next gathering you attend. Everyone will love you for it. New to the world of recipes with artichokes, here is a link on How to Cook and Eat an Artichoke Heart, you can thank me later!

My favorite thing to serve this with is French or Hawaiian bread chunks. It also goes great with crackers or chips.
