the best Crockpot Spinach and Artichoke Dip.

As everyone knows, it is football season.I don’t really care about football…like at all. However, I enjoy the food that goes along with football games. I will gladly sit there and snack on all the food while others pay attention to the game. But more than just eating the food, I enjoy cooking it. I am always looking for appetizer recipes to cook on game day.

As well all know, chips and dip are a common appetizer for watching any sporting event. For most, the go to dip is salsa, but at my house it’s spinach and artichoke. We LOVE spinach and artichoke dip! When it’s game day my husband is asking me to make it.

I cannot eat artichokes by themselves. I don’t know if it’s a texture or taste thing, but I can’t do it. Now, when they’re mixed with spinach and cheese, I can gobble them up! Lets take a look at the best crockpot spinach and artichoke dip recipe ever!

Try this AMAZING creamy garlic, asparagus, and penne pasta dish!

Creamy Garlic, Asparagus and Penne Pasta
I LOVE PASTA!

I could eat it every single day of the week! Let me reassure you, I don’t…but I could. I plan our families meals at least a week in advance and I work really hard at putting pasta dishes into the mix only once or twice. When I’m able to add yummy veggies to my exquisite bowl of carbs though, I don’t feel so bad if an extra pasta meal accidentally slips in. I’m bad, I know.

Now, I’ll warn you, this dish still isn’t the healthiest (there is heavy cream in it) but O.M.G your taste buds are going to be happy! Not to mention that this is another recipe that doesn’t take long to whip up and I know everybody loves those! This typically turns out to be my “Monday meal” the meal that I don’t really have to think about, or prepare for when I’m getting back into the groove of the week and I usually have all the ingredients in my cupboard and fridge.

Anyways, back to the recipe! I know you are going to LOVE this! The asparagus comes out of the oven with just a little bit of crunch which it has to have or else it gets all stringy and that just isn’t right! Once you mix everything together though, it just becomes this explosion of flavors! The garlic, the cream, the pasta! It all comes together so nicely, and I always end up going back for seconds. I just can’t help it!

Easy and delicious Fire Roasted Corn Dip

Fire Roasted Corn Dip

Warning: Pants may be a little snug after eating this dip.

Fire Roasted Corn Dip

I love chips and dip. It’s one of my many weaknesses when it comes to food. One of my favorite things to do is to go to a restaurant, order a nice drink, chips, and some sort of dip and just sit there and relax. So, there is no surprise that my first actual blog post would be a dip recipe. You’re probably saying to yourself, “She is starting off with a dip” but I made this for a little family get together this weekend and it was a big hit!

The great thing about this recipe is that you should have all the ingredients lying around your kitchen already. Plus, its super simple to make! Bonus points for that right?

Let’s get down to it shall we? Below are the ingredients you will need.

Ingredients for corn dip

As you can see, there is no low-fat anything here, I just can’t do it, especially when it comes to something as delicious as a dip. Another thing, I am a huge wuss when it comes to anything hot, so even though I tell you to add Red Pepper flakes, what I really mean is just a pinch. However, if you love yourself some spicy stuff, be sure to add as much as you like!

There you have it! Addictive, delicious, and easy Fire Roasted Corn dip. I hope you guys enjoy this one as much as my family and I do. Comment below with what you think about this little gem once you’ve tried it, and if you decide to add something else into the mix, be sure and tell me, I love to hear what people do to make it their own!

Hello World! Welcome to Family, Food, and Crafts!

Hello there and welcome to Family, Food, and Crafts!

I’m so glad that you decided to stop on in. Let me start by introducing myself.Ā My name is Victoria. I am a wife, mother, and book lover ! My husband and I currently live in Colorado. We have one human baby and four fur babies (three dogs and a cat) and let me tell you, things get pretty hectic around here! Since welcoming little baby A into the world, I haveĀ been blessed to be able to stay home with her and do what I love, which is creating little odds and ends. I have recently opened up an Etsy shop (http://www.etsy.com/shop/VictoriasCraftStudio) and decided that it was time that I start a blog.Ā Starting a blog is something that I have been thinking about doing for quite some time now, and after much deliberation, I have decided to take the plunge and do it!

Now, I’ve been thinFamily Food & Craftsking long and hard on what this blog is going to be about. There’s a lot of people who like to stick to one particular thing, but that’s just not me. I like to bounce around and have fun so, I’ve decided that this blog is going to be filled with a little bit of everything! It’s going to be filled with TONS of fun, exciting things! I’m going to haveĀ recipes, and I mean recipes for everyone! For the men, for the kids, for you moms when you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking. There’ll be side dishes, breakfast items, dips, you name it I’ll have it! I’ll also haveĀ family anecdotes, crafts,Ā and everything in between.

So, please come in, grab your favorite beverage (I’m thinking maybe a nice glass of wine, or tea if that’s what you’re in to) and stay awhile! Things areĀ just getting started!

 

Cheers,

Victoria
