Spinach Artichoke Dip



I think everyone and every restaurant has a version of this recipe. I remember the first time I had this, my best friend and I decided to grab a burger after work and headed to Houlihan’s, which is a chain in NJ. We decided to start off with this appetizer. It was delicious and since then, I have searched for the perfect recipe. I have finally developed the perfect one a few years ago and it is a constant request from friends and family.  It is perfectly rich and creamy. Every time a put it out it is scoffed down in minutes. I have learned to make a little serving in a ramekin for myself just so I get a chance to indulge.


I was making it for a bridal shower I was attending and thought I would share. With the upcoming holidays, it is the perfect starter and it is gluten free!!!

  2. Yum! My sister and I call this crack dip because we literally cannot get enough of it whenever she makes it. I'm eternally grateful to whoever thought of the spinach-artichoke combo :)
