Today, I'm bringing you a recipe that has so many things I love about it.
When I was younger, I would always plan elaborate menus that left me too exhausted to enjoy anything. The one thing that I've learned as I've gotten older is that an exhausted host is not a good host. Whether you are having friends over for a big game or are entertaining out of town guests, the slow cooker lets you enjoy the festivities without being chained to the kitchen.
Next, we've got the creamy, cheesy factor, which this has.
Round it off with some veggies, so you don't have to feel entirely bad about a little indulgence, and you have a winner in my book.
And, oh, yeah. This Slow Cooker Spinach and Artichoke Dip is my favorite Spinach Artichoke Dip…..ever.
(And I've had more that I care to admit.)
