It’s time for Karen’s Killer Fixin’s! Over the years, I’ve filled two 4-inch, 3-ring binders with my own creations as well as recipes my family and friends were willing to share with me. I simply love to cook and want to share that love with my readers. So every Friday, I share one recipe I think you and your family might enjoy. It might be a main course recipe from my own kitchen or a guest author favorite. It could be a cookie or baked item. Candy. Salads. Whatever strikes the eye and fancy…which today is SPINACH & ARTICHOKE DIP!
I grew up not knowing what artichokes were, let alone tasted one.. At least, they were never on our menu growing up. Too expensive, even if you could find them. They can still be pricey if they’re fresh and whole. But, I digress. After I discovered artichokes, they have featured in a lot of my recipes. Once they started canning them, it became easier to enjoy them. I love this recipe because I can make something special on game days or for potlucks quite easily. It just needs to cook for a couple of hours while I do other things
I hope you enjoy today’s Killer Fixin’s. Happy eating!
