Artichoke Parmesan Bake

It was time for my 6 month dental appointment. Teeth cleaned and checked. I never mind because it also means that I will get to spend some time with Connie, our dental hygienist, who I just adore.  Connie is always ready to talk kids, grandkids, crafts, and RECIPES with me.  It is a fun time 🙂 I told her my friend Nancy was coming for a visit and that I was busy planning menus. She asked me if I had ever made Artichoke Parmesan Dip.  I had not, although I think I had eaten something similar at a restaurant once or twice.  She proceeded to rattle off the recipe to me as she cleaned and polished my teeth.
I planned to make this as an appetizer on the day I made Chicken Caesar Salad during Nancy’s visit.  Trouble is … I FORGOT! I had all the ingredients on hand and simply forgot.  Sorry Nancy … next time 🙂

On a positive note I did find my memory and my Chief Culinary Consultant and Sous-chef dish-washing mom loved being served an appetizer before dinner recently!  There are a lot of baked artichoke recipes in recipe books and throughout the internet.  However, I have to agree with Connie, “this one is exceptional.”  I have to wonder if the Worcestershire sauce is the star, or maybe the touch of onion, the splash of lemon? the Parmesan?  When all combined it bakes up into a luscious warm and creamy dip.

BUT WAIT there’s more …
We only ate about half of the dip as an appetizer.  I decided to take the leftover and spread across a pizza crust.  I topped it with a blend of Italian cheeses and baked it up.  Oh my gosh! The pizza was as good or better than the dip!  I meant to take a picture before we ate it … but I FORGOT.  My bad.


~Happy Cooking!

NOW when Jesus saw the crowds, he went up on a mountainside and sat down. His disciples came to him, and he began to teach them.

The Beatitudes

He said:

“Blessed are the poor in spirit,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who mourn,
for they will be comforted.
Blessed are the meek,
for they will inherit the earth.
Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
for they will be filled.
Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.
10 Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Matthew 5:1-10
