Here’s the basic recipe minus the measurements — It makes too much for a small quick serving.  It’s simply a mixture of chopped Artichoke Hearts, Jalapenos, Green Chilies, Shaved Parmesan (since that’s the type currently on hand, but grated is best), and Mayonnaise.  Just mix all ingredients to a balanced creamy consistency.  Cover with just enough mayo to coat. 

One of my friends brings a larger serving of this dip to my Annual Christmas Party.  I believe she won a Ribbon for it in 2007.  FYI: I didn’t provide the measurements below, because they appear to be off — Way too much mayo, which doesn’t seem necessary. Read more…

Milk. It Sometimes Feels So Vital.

There are certain things we eat that MUST be accompanied by a Glass of Milk.  For me, it’s Chocolate, most sweets, a homemade dinner or lunch, and breakfast.  Does anything satisfy or compliment certain foods better?  I know Red Wine does too, especially after a hard day, but we’re talking about Milk now.  Sometimes “Got milk?” does make a lot of sense.

I don’t know all the ins and outs about Milk — Some say aspects are good and others say differently.  I know I wouldn’t want to give it up.  I often crave a very cold glass of it.

On a side NOTE:  I once won a contest using it in a recipe.  The contest was sponsored by Milk, thus I’m sporting a Milk Mustache in a print AD.  My recipe and mug were published in Gourmet and Bon Appétit Magazines a few years back.  See the link below for the print copy and recipe.
