From the moment she was old enough to actually eat ... Phoebe has loved warm creamy dips.  Her first taste was Artichoke Dip in a restaurant, served with chips, and from then on almost every restaurant meal began with hot cheesy dip, because we knew she would eat it!  Her favorite has artichokes in it, but she will also eat the dip with spinach added!  When I make this dip at home, I add extra artichoke hearts because they are soooooooo good!

Because I collect all things 'pig', I couldn't resist this cute little crock pot.  It is the perfect size for dips and side dishes (1.5 quarts). I usually cut soft pita bread into wedges to serve with warm dip.   I had a nice watermelon ale with my dip. Miss Phoebe had a Grape Crush soda!

The recipe for this dip is another easy one!  The crock pot does all the work. All you have to do is 'dump' the ingredients into the pot and stir it a few times!


8 ounces of artichoke hearts in oil
8 ounce block of cream cheese, cut into cubes
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
4 slices of white American cheese
1/4 cup mayonnaise
1/4 cup parmesan cheese

Place the ingredients in the crock pot in the order listed and cook it on high for 2 hours. Turn it to warm for another hour. Stir the dip a few times during cooking and if it is completely melted, it is ready to serve! 
It may not take 3 hours.

I'll be sharing this recipe with a couple parties. Make sure you click through to see the other posts!
