Spinach dip

Sometimes, you long for the days that you could get that frozen TGIF spinach artichoke dip and sit and nosh with a big bag of Tostitos and watch countless sappy romance movies with your girlfriends.  WELL, with this recipe you can recreate those memories!  I’ve had to improvise, but I got my inspiration from none other than Smitten Kitchen, which is a cooking blog I truly admire and adore.
