I'm so amazed that people are reading my blog, and touched that some are following it! I have blog friends! I haven't told anyone~except for my daughter~that I have a blog, but it did slip out tonight at a farewell party for one of my co-workers, who is moving on to a new challenge. It was a very fun party! We told 'stories' about our colleague, and she cried, we told her how wonderful she is and how she is such a mentor, and she cried some more. I love potluck get togethers with friends, co-workers or family. My favorite thing to take is Artichoke Dip. Tonight it was gone in less than 20 minutes. Here is the recipe, along with my fave martini!

Blueberry-Pomegranate Martini

1-Triple Sec~or other
6-True Blue Blueberry-Pomegranate juice

Shake in shaker with ice~makes 2 large martinis or lots of small ones..

Artichoke Dip

Spread layer of sour cream in bottom of 9x13 pan (low fat is OK)
Chop 14 oz can of artichokes and sprinkle over sour cream (chop finely or not, it's up to you)
Spoon some salsa over the artichokes (watch your amounts of sour cream and salsa, you don't want it to be runny)
Cover the whole mess with grated cheese (your choice, but a mix of cheddar and mozza, with some feta is awesome!)
Bake at 350 for 20-25 minutes, til bubbly and the edges are browned.
Serve with tortilla chips for dipping.


  1. Hi, thanks for following me! I love your blog background choice. Yoga is great, it's fun to watch yourself become more flexible and balanced. Thanks for the artichoke dip recipe, I'll have to try it.

  2. Can't wait to try the martini. Sounds delicious and I can have as many as I want because Pomegranate is an antioxidant (LOL).
