golden grahams s'mores

My mom is famous for this recipe.  Whenever there's a party at Melanie's house, a camping trip, a party that Melanie is taking treats to, a missionary package sent, etc., these are a staple.  Thus, to me, they are a sentimental treat (and so yummy to boot!).  Enjoy.

artichoke dip

This artichoke dip (not to be confused with spinach artichoke dip) is amazing.  I got it from a past roommate who made it for a party.  When you read these ingredients, you might not think this recipe will taste good.  I assure you, it. is. so. good.  Perfect party dip for tortilla chips, crackers, or little bread slices, etc.  Enjoy.

Artichoke Dip
1 cup mayo
1 cup sour cream
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
8 oz. cream cheese
1 can cut artichoke hearts (not marinated)

Blend all ingredients except artichoke hearts together.  Gently fold in artichoke hearts.  

Bake in glass pie pan for 45 mins at 325 degrees.
