Artichoke, something green. Happy Birthday, SWEET SIXTEEN!

Happy Sweet 16 to my cousin Margaux – a fun, beautiful and brilliant girl.  It is hard to believe that I can actually remember her being born and celebrating her first birthday when today it doesn’t feel like we are that many years  apart.
Our love of clothing, makeup, photography and of course, cooking, is what brings us together.  Whenever we get together we swap favorite makeup brands, latest finds and what’s cookin’ .
There is one recipe in particular that Margaux has been begging me to cook, post and share with her:
Artichoke Dip
Preheat oven to 350
You will need:
•14 oz. artichokes in water
•1/2 cup light mayo
•1/2 cup sour cream
•1/8 tsp. Tabasco Sauce
•1/3  cup grated parmesan cheese
1.) Begin by draining artichokes and finely chopping. 
2.) Next, add the remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.

3.) Bake for 20-25 minutes until bubbly around the edges and the dip begins to brown on top.

As you can see this recipe is simple but the results are so delicious.   The sweet, tender artichoke hearts melt perfectly into the creamy dip that pairs well with crackers or  bread.  It is a recipe that you can whip up if company is coming unexpectedly or if it is just simply your 16th Birthday.
Happy Birthday Margaux, here’s to many, many more.

  1. Happy birthday Margaux!! What a cool name by the way! <3
    This sounds like a delicious recipe!! Although honestly, I'm not a big mayo fan especially when it's straight up and I can actually taste it hehe :P I'm sure it'll be masked by the artichokes though.

  2. I have been exploring for a little bit for any high-quality articles or blog posts in this kind of space . Exploring in Yahoo I finally stumbled upon this site. Studying this information So i am happy to convey that I’ve an incredibly excellent uncanny feeling I discovered exactly what I needed. I most for sure will make certain to do not disregard this website and give it a look on a continuing basis.
