Vegetarian Artichoke Spinach Pitas

July 15, 2010

Vegetarian Artichoke Spinach Pitas


  • 1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese
  • 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise (I used sour cream because I don’t like mayo)
  • 1 clove garlic, peeled (or 2 TBSP minced garlic)
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried dill weed (I used instead fresh basil from my garden)
  • 8 oz frozen Spinach

Throw all of the ingredients in your crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours. This can be served in Pitas with your favorite veggies, cheese etc… or can be used as a dip with Crackers or Heavy Dipping Bread pieces.

These would be great to send cold in a lunchbox:)

Peanut Butter Icing or Fruit Dip

March 29, 2010

This is a great recipe for icing that is fantastic paired with yellow or chocolate cake for cupcakes. You can make them especially decadent by taking a pastry syringe and filling the middle from the top and then icing all over the top to cover the hole.

I plan to make a batch and take it this Thursday to my kids School for their Easter Parties with Cut Up Apples for Dipping (as posted before I brush the Apple Slices with Apple Juice to keep them from turning brown). Picture posted above 🙂

You will LOVE this if you are a fan of peanut butter fudge because that’s what it tastes like 😉
