This slow cooker hot golden artichoke dip feels a little bit retro to me and I love that feeling at the holidays. I dig out my Grandma’s cookie and roll recipes and some of my Mom’s casserole recipes to help with that nostalgic feeling as my little of family of four unpacks our Christmas tree ornaments, sharing memories as we go. We are otherwise not a picture perfect Norman Rockwell family. We are as real as it gets. But something about warm, white Christmas lights makes the brain go all happy and fuzzy for a bit.
Artichoke Dip has long been a favorite though usually I bake mine in the oven. I decided to do a short video to show just how simple this 5-ingredient slow cooker recipe is. Also I think cooked spinach would be a tasty addition to this dip plus it would add some festive color. I didn’t add it because my husband detests cooked spinach and it really is delicious just as it is!
This recipe reminds me why convenience foods exist. Many taste really good and the holidays makes them a necessity even for a food blogger like me. Actually especially for a food blogger like me because the holidays are some of our busiest months all year. And this year my kitchen decided to wreak some havoc on me as well.
