Reviews for Creamy Sun-Dried Tomato Spread
"The best!! Requested for Christmas Eve every year. . I serve with pita chips. Makes a lot so if smaller crowd could make 1/2 recipe."
"This is amazing. I only make half the recipe. I have also put it in my little slow cooker to warm up instead of in the oven."
"This is always a favorite for guests and so easy to make"
"This recipe is wonderful! I did cut it in half and use an 8x8-inch pan, which worked better for my husband and me. I also added a tablespoon of homemade pesto...yum! The next time I'm asked to take an appetizer to a family gathering, this is what I'll be making!"
"Enjoyed this at a friend's last night. Enjoyed by all ages. Searched for the recipe as it was so good I want to take it to a potluck. Would not change a thing!"
