Artichoke Spinach dip

I have got to share this recipe.
I have made it many times and I think it is just delicious.
Maybe not the most healthy thing, but that's okay :-)

4 cloves garlic (if I do not have any I just use a bit of garlic powder)
1 (10 ounce) package frozen chopped spinach, thawed and drained
1 (14 ounce) can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1 (10 ounce) container Alfredo-style pasta sauce
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).
  2. Place garlic in a small baking dish. Bake in the preheated oven 20 to 30 minutes, until soft. Remove from heat. When cool enough to touch, squeeze softened garlic from skins.
  3. In an 8x8 inch baking dish, spread the roasted garlic, spinach, artichoke hearts, Alfredo-style pasta sauce, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese and cream cheese.
  4. Cover and bake in the preheated oven 30 minutes, or until cheeses are melted and bubbly. Serve warm.

I just wanted to write a little bit about crafting....
I am addicted to ALL things crafts.

I never knew I could be so obsessed with all this stuff.
Years ago I never thought my absolute favorite stores would be Joanns, Michaels or Hobby Lobby.
I never ever ever in 5789743 million years thought I would be into sewing.
It is SEW;-) much fun though!

Everywhere I go now, I look to see if I can find something to craft with.
It has become a sickness haha!

It is a great way to pass time though, doing all these crafts.
My problem though is I spend to much time in my craft room then I do doing the things around the house that need to be done....OOPS

So this post is pretty much just a bunch of rambling but that's alright...

off to go craft some more :-)

Here is the most recent mini album I made.
I wanted to make one and had a mind block on what "theme" to make it in so I asked my hubby and he said school/teacher.
So here it is.
Thanks for looking!
