Tasty Tuesday.....wow that was Original ;)

So a few things to share with you tonight!  This weekend was a so wonderful filled with friends, a baby shower for Jack, great food and a little kickball.

Bonnie's baby shower for Jack was Saturday!  I was a host but Cassie did such a great job putting it all together!  Really it should have been featured on Hostess with the Mostess (amazing blog if you haven't been there).  Here are a few pictures :)

For the Shower I made a healthy version of Spinach and Artichoke Dip!  I have to say it was pretty amazing!

It doesn't look healthy does it ??

I got the recipe from Seriouseats.com

10-ounce bag fresh spinach


6 ounces (3/4 block) 1/3-less-fat cream cheese, softened

6 ounces (3/4 block) fat-free cream cheese, softened

1/2 cup fat-free sour cream

1 1/2 cups part-skim mozzarella, shredded

1 (14-ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped

1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

3 garlic cloves, crushed (not minced)

6 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese, divided


Preheat oven to 350°F.

Tear spinach into bite-size pieces, removing any thick stems. Rinse in a colander, leaving a little water on the leaves. In a large nonstick skillet or Dutch oven, saute the spinach over medium heat until wilted. Drain in the colander, pushing a little of the extra water out.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheeses with a potato masher. Add sour cream and mash more. Add spinach, mozzarella, artichokes, pepper, garlic, and 2 tablespoons of the Parmesan. Stir everything until thoroughly combined.

Pour mixture into a 1 1/2 quart baking dish. Sprinkle remaining 1/4 cup of Parmesan on top. Bake 30 minutes, or until Parmesan is melted dip is all bubbly. Remove from oven and give it a minute or two to cool down. Serve with baked tortilla chips to applause.
