Chew on This | Speedy Quick Hot Artichoke Dip

My bedside table looks a bit like a pharmacy. Pills, sprays, potions, and puffers. You would think that there was a major viral or bacterial infestation going on in the house, but really it's just the ever annoying cold and cough. Both kids have it and they are sniffling, snuffing, and hacking away. Christmas break has just begun, thankfully, yet neither one of them felt awful enough to stay home from school during this last week. Which is good because it was the end of their grading period and tests, quizzes, projects, and in-class assignments were happening daily. Not something they wanted to miss and have to make up! 

What's also good, if there can be anything good about having a cold, is that everyone seems to feel much better in the morning and during most of the day. However, in the evening they're tired, cranky, and can't stop snorting and sniffing ever.two.seconds. Not gonna lie, I kind of feel like running out of the house like a screaming lunatic when the snuffling symphony starts. And now, to add insult to injury, The Husband seems to be walking on the fringes of this sickness. No bueno.

I am choosing to not have the sickness. I am maniacally washing my hands, cleaning surfaces and door handles, spraying Lysol, and drinking my Super Juice. I'm also increasing the personal space distance I have with my people. I don't think they've noticed so much just yet, but when I decide to only chat with them from down the hall, I think they might be a bit put out.

Here's to your health!


Here's our recipe:

Speedy Quick Hot Artichoke Dip

4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 C plain Greek yogurt
1 C parmesan cheese, grated
1 clove garlic, finely minced
1 (12 ounce) jar marinated artichoke hearts, roughly chopped
Sriracha sauce, a few shakes to your taste
salt/pepper, to your taste

Preheat oven to 400℉.  I placed my dip into an 8" cast iron skillet to bake.

Place all ingredients in a bowl and stir to combine. Spoon dip into a baking dish and place into the oven. Bake for 17-20 minutes, or until browned and bubbly. Serve immediately with bread chunks, chips, or veggies. Enjoy!
