Yummy Homemade Hot Spinach and Artichoke Dip Recipe

Looking for an awesome dip recipe? Homemade hot spinach and artichoke dip is amazingly tasty!

Prep time takes about 15 minutes, and then you need to allow for about 25 minutes of bake time. There’s not a lot of ingredients, and the recipe truly comes together fairly quickly!

While the original recipe calls for frozen artichoke hearts, I have an easier time finding the jarred varieties. I just rinse them off very well and then follow the directions in the recipe as laid out.

Serve this tasty dip with pita chips, tortilla chips, toasted bread, crackers or veggies (I’ve even had it with pretzels!). I’ve also fried cut up corn tortillas, sprinkled them with a bit of salt and had them with this dip as well. SO very good!!

This dip is great as a game day snack, or as an appetizer during the holidays! It’s also a great dish to take to a get together or pot luck too. It really is a delicious dip, and it’s our go-to for family game night as well.

Easy to Make Decadent Brownies Stuffed with Oreo Cookies

Oreo Stuffed Brownies

I have a weakness for Oreos. And I’ve never met a brownie I didn’t like. So when I saw this recipe for a brownie stuffed with an Oreo cookie, it didn’t matter if it was the middle of the night – these Oreo stuffed brownies needed to be made!

There’s not a lot of ingredients needed to make these fudgy, decadent brownies. The hardest part is waiting for them to cool off! If you like your brownies warm, you will need to be careful as the cookie center does take a bit longer to cool off than the rest of the brownie.

One of the great things about this recipe is that you can swap out flavors of Oreos. Not only are the original Oreos awesome, but personally I like using the mint and the peanut butter pie flavors.

I think the Java Chip and the limited edition salted caramel brownie flavors would be amazing as well! And, you could always use the orange colored cream filled ones if you wanted a dessert with an October feel to it.
