Verse of the Day:
"For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world;"

Hello everyone. I hope everyone had a good time over Christmas and New Years. My DH went back to work and my oldest daughter went back to school after having a week and a half off. I miss them. The house is quiet. I will just have to get used to this again. 

Me and the Bella Bear are just hanging out at home today getting caught up on laundry if there is such a think as being caught up on laundry.

Things are good. Getting ready to amp up my blog. I switched to a .com which I am really happy about and getting ready for some new and exciting things. One of my new things you saw today. Tasty Finds Tuesday is a post you will see every Tuesday. Tomorrow, you will see the first "Wordful Wednesday" post by my DH and on Saturday look for "Super Savings Saturday." 

As always, I hope everyone has a blessed day.


Tasty Finds Tuesday - Spinach and Artichoke Dip

This has to one of my very favorite recipes! This is an awesome appetizer for parties or in my case, I can make a meal out of it. My friend Sarah introduced this to me and how she makes it is excellent, but I made some very small changes which you will see. I hope you enjoy this as much as me and my friends do. Happy New Year.

1 stick of butter
1 med onion chopped
20 ozs of frozen spinach chopped, thawed and drained well (I use about 15 ozs)
1 14oz can of artichoke hearts drained and chopped(I use about 1/2 to 3/4 of the can)
8 oz of cream cheese
8 oz of sour cream
1 cup of monterey jack cheese shredded
1 cup of parm. cheese shredded
3/4 cup of mozzarella cheese shredded (this is something I added. Not in the original recipe)
1 tsp to 2 TB Tabasco sauce (start with the smaller amount and taste, add more if you want more)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Melt butter in a large pot, add onions and cook until tender. Stir in spinach, cream cheese, sour cream, Tabasco sauce, salt, pepper, 3/4 cup of monterey jack, 3/4 cup parm, and 1/2 cup mozzarella. Heat until all cheese is melted. Pour into a 1 qt. baking dish, top with remaining cheese, and bake at 350 just until cheese is beginning to brown. This usually takes about 15-20 mins.

Serve this with your favorite chips or bread and enjoy!
