A Southwestern food fan asked us to bring home a taste of her restaurant favorite—a cheesy spinach dip from Cheddar's Casual Cafe. Our Test Kitchen came up with this flavor-packed facsimile that's sure to be a hit at your next party. —Country Woman Test Kitchen, Greendale, Wisconsin
"Here's an easy, cheesy artichoke appetizer that I just love," says Kori Tuggle, marketing manager for Ocean Mist Farms, Castroville, California. "Our artichoke fields are a stop on Taste of Home's Slice of California tour. We look forward to showing the travelers how easy it is to cook and enjoy this thorny, odd-looking little vegetable!"
“I created this appetizer when I had some leftover phyllo dough in the freezer. It’s perfect for a party because it looks elegant but is easy to make. I serve the shrimp with two sauces, so guests can decide if they’re in a sweet or spicy mood!”
—Sonali Ruder, New York, New York
Whenever I go to an event, I'm always asked to bring this hot dip. Five types of cheese make it a standout and oh-so delicious. I love its party-ready convenience—I serve it straight from the slow cooker, so set-up and clean-up is a breeze! —Noelle Myers, Grand Forks, North Dakota
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
