Healthy Spinach Artichoke Dip This warm, creamy dip is always a party favorite. The traditional recipe is loaded with full-fat mayo, sour cream, and cream cheese; delicious, but oh-so-naughty. Compared to a restaurant version, this healthy makeover is 80% lower in calories and fat while maintaining great flavor and creamy richness. Serve it with homemade whole wheat pita chips, and you've got yourself a delicious, no-guilt snack or party appetizer. This dip has always been one of my favorites, so I wanted to give it a healthy makeover. Healthified & simplified. I lightened the recipe by substituting Greek yogurt for the sour cream that is traditionally used. Thanks to Katrina at Baking And Boys for the inspiration for making a lighter version of this recipe. Good-for-you ingredients! Artichokes are high in iron, vitamin C, folates, magnesium and fiber; also rich in antioxidants.

Then, you bake it in a bundt pan that allows you to pull off little chunks and dip them in pizza sauce. This is the perfect thing to bring to a party (and I did, where it disappeared quickly!) or to eat during a football game. Or, make it for dinner and serve with a salad. This bread takes a little bit of time to prepare, but in about half an hour I had filled my bundt pan with little dough balls, each with a piece of pepperoni and cheese stuffed within it. My new definition of bliss: warm dough with a cheesy center and a bite of pepperoni.

Jalapeno Popper Dip recipe We were just beginning to date when he made spaghetti with meat sauce that had a whopping two pounds of meat in it! Growing up as the youngest of ten kids, we had spaghetti every Sunday for dinner. Although there may have been some meat in the watery spaghetti sauce when my older siblings dished up their plate, by the time I dug into the sauce there sure wasn't any. My husband's spaghetti, thick and full of savory meat, was completely on the other side of the spectrum. Thus my introduction to "Man Food" and a cuisine future consisting of Buffalo wings, burgers, Philly cheese steaks, and anything that made my mouth burn and my eyes water. I knew when I made this Jalapeno Popper Dip that it fit in the "Man Food" category and would definitely be husband friendly. You can make this Jalapeno Popper Dip with just a little heat or you can double the jalapenos for the spice-lovin' men in your life. Christy has fun cooking with her three boys and hungry hubby!
