Spinach & Artichoke Dip {from scratch with love }

My biggest hit at family parties, this dip recipe has evolved over the years, because at times I would throw it together with whatever I had on hand. Well, I can say it always tasted the same somehow, and each time it was delectable!

If you have spinach and some fixin’s for a dip you can make this recipe and everyone will love it, or like me you can hoard a batch to eat after everyone’s asleep.

1/4 cup cream cheese

1-3 cloves garlic (minced)
