I’m a fan of classic dishes but frequently tweak them a bit to suit my family’s tastes. My cheesy spinach dip is a little lighter than other versions I’ve seen and pairs well with bagel chips. —Jenn Tidwell, Fair Oaks, California

"I don't see why it couldn't be made in the microwave...never know until you try! Let me know how it turns out if you do so :DYou just want to be sure that the flour gets cooks and will thicken. Also the cheese may not brown on top in the microwave."
