  • Artichoke Dip
     
    1 C sour cream
    1 C fresh parmesan cheese (I use the grated from the green can :))
    1 Can chopped green chiles
    1 Can artichoke hearts, chopped and drained well (I squeeze them in a paper towel, I buy the kind packed in water not oil)
    1 C mayo (I use miracle whip)

    Mix all together, in a pie plate or small casserole dish and bake at 350 until brown and bubbly.

    I have NEVER had one person tell me they didn't like this dip...even someone who hates artichokes, loved it!

    Enjoy  :)

  • Spinach Roll-Ups

    1 Package baby spinach (10oz), chopped, or 1 package (10oz) frozen chopped spinach, thawed and squeezed dry (I use frozen, but it is a mit more "stringy" so you may want to use fresh and cut the stems off if this bothers you)
    1 container (16oz) light/fat free sour cream
    1 cup miracle whip light
    1 package Knorr Vegetable recipe mix
    1 can (8oz) water chestnuts, drained and chopped
    3 green onions, chopped

    Combine all ingredients and chill about 2 hours.  Spread into tortillas or moistened lavosh cracker bread.  I have been spreading the dip in tomato basil high fiber tortillas.  After spreading onto tortilla or cracker bread, roll-up, and refrigerate rolls for an additional 1-2 hours until firm.  Take them out and slice them into bite size pieces and put on a platter.

  • ok. so I am doing the artichoke dip (which is almost exactly like one I've done before and love).  I'm putting it in a bread round.
    I am also making the buffalo chicken dip.  Linds, what do you normally serve with this?  Crackers?
    And I have to try the oyster crackers, just b/c they sound good.

    I am going shopping tomorrow and then I will clean between Fri and Sat and then bake a few lasagnas on SAT morning.

    I will b a busy b....

    I'd make double batches of both dips if I were you!  I have always servied tortiall chips with both dips actually!!  Just the tostitos round ones!  I use a casserole dish for artichoke dip which I assume is similar to a bread round?  lol.  I googled it, looks similar.

    Wish I was in FL, I'd just make the stuff and drive it down for Amanda's party  :o

    Let me know if you have anymore questions!

  • Cheese Fondue

    5 cups (approx. 40 oz.) processed Swiss American cheese  (white American cheese)
    2 cups water
    1 cup Sauterne (Chablis) wine (any dry white wine will do, if you prefer something else, though Chardonnay tends to make it tasty a little too oak-y for our taste)
    1 tsp. garlic powder
    1 T. butter
    dash white pepper
    dash nutmeg

    1/2 loaf Rye bread
    1/2 loaf french bread (we actually use sourdough)

    Grate cheese (tear if in slice form).  Bring water, wine, butter and seasonings to a boil in the top of a double boiler. (Must use a double boiler or cheese will burn.)Then add cheese slowly, stirring to melt after each small portion.

    Stir thoroughly with a wooden spoon until cheese melts into a heavy sauce.  If it seems too thick, add a little more wine.  If too thin, add more cheese.)

    Dice bread into 2 inch squares and brown lightly in the oven.

    Serve fondue in fondue pot, stirring occasionally to make sure the cheese doesn't scald on the bottom.
