"I got this zesty recipe from a neighbor several years ago," reports Susan Wolfe of Olathe, Kansas. "Served with crackers, it makes a great snack. I also serve it with raw veggies as an appetizer or on crusty bread with a salad for a light meal. Every time I make this dip, I think of my friend and the fun times our families had together."
I'm a busy stay-at-home mom with a 3-year-old son. I love this recipe because it's easy to prepare in advance and keep refrigerated. Put it in the oven when guests arrive, and by the time you've poured beverages, the dip is ready. It gets gobbled up quickly!

My husband, Mike, and I grow olives, so they often appear on our menus. In this recipe, olive add a little extra spark to ordinary artichoke dip.—Armstrong Olives, Mike and Cindy Armstrong, Porterville, California
This recipe started at school—I'm a teacher, and when a colleague brought Hot Cheese Dip to our regular staff potluck, I immediately gave it an A+.
Cooking, baking and collecting recipe books are among my favorite hobbies. Best of all, though, I enjoy time with my husband and our daughter.
