A - Z Blogging Challenge - A






I LOVE to cook and bake so I thought I would do recipes for the A - Z  Challenge.  They're all tried, tested and true and I hope you enjoy them!!



"A "


 Artichoke  Dip

1 bottle artichoke hearts
2 large cloves garlic
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise

Drain and squeeze out artichokes.  Finely mince garlic.  Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Put in small ovenproof dish and bake at 350 degrees F. for 20 minutes.  Serve with crackers or sliced baguette.

I have never eaten an artichoke. I'll have to have a look in the supermarket. I went googling the image there and I don't know if I've seen one! Here starts a great artichoke hunt!
best of luck with the A-Z

I love this dip, I add spinach to mine. I cook it in the microwave, then drain the water off. I then add it as a spread on my turkey club sandwich, turkey, tomatoes, this dip and caramelized onions... I'm hungry, now :)

It's been awhile since I've experimented in the kitchen -- I'll have to try one of these out!

Growing up, we had a huge artichoke growing in the back garden - no idea how my Mother came to acquire it.

Scared the heck out of us - a giant mutated thistle from Mars was about the kindest thought we had for it.

I've grown quite fond of them since - working out my childhood horrors by eating them.

This looks like a very good way for an artichoke to shuffle off this mortal coil :-)

Great start to A-Z - keep going

Oh yum!!! I love Artichokes so much. I make a kind of spicy hot artichoke dip that rocks. Lovely blog:)

Thank Katie O'Sullivan... yours is one of the few blogs I've just now discovered and INSTANTLY subscribed to by email. I could use a month's worth of new recipes that are both EASY and "Yum!" as she put it.
