Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

spinach and artichoke dip recipeI may suck at decorating cupcakes, but I don’t suck at making food for gatherings.You know our love of football and baking/cooking from scratch. Having worked in many restaurants throughout college and thereafter, I learned a few tricks of the trade when it comes to recipes, and I believe my Spinach and Artichoke Dip recipe is to DIE for. I hope you try it and see for yourself!

The key to a really tasty Spinach and Artichoke Dip is adding a few dollups Frank’s Red Hot sauce. I can’t explain why, but having been forced previously to eat it without adding it, it just adds this extra, tasty “oomph” that is much needed to take the taste to the next level.
