Fun with Artichokes

I have a couple more artichoke recipes that turned out to be keepers-

The first one is from AR, the only change I made was to add in some diced green olives.

Pretty good stuff, I think next time I will top it with some shredded cheese.

This next one is very versatile, it could be used as a cold pate.

Or topped with shredded mozzarella and baked as a dip.

Or used to stuff Mushrooms, it was yummy all 3 ways.

Artichoke Crab Spread

1/2c. marinated artichoke hearts
1/2c. crab meat
4 oz cream cheese
1/4c. parmesan cheese
1 green garlic stuffed olive
1/2t. salt

Blend all together in a food processor. If baking- bake at 400 degrees for about 15 minutes.

Next time I make this I think I will add 1/2c. shredded mozzarella into the mix. This is a recipe that I will be making for game night for sure.

Miss M was cooking right alongside me, she made 2 beautiful little tea cakes and a scarecrow cookie.

She told me the recipe is a secret though, so I am unable to share it with you, sorry : )

Miss M is adorable!! That salad looks delicious, I love black olives and well, I'd eat any stuffing that was tucked into a mushroom. Love them!!!

love Miss M's cookies!! of course you can't tell her secret, but what a masterpiece!

yum on the crab dip too! it would be aweseome if we were neighbors; I'd be the guinea pig for anything you'd want to try as a recipe (of course my hips definitely would want to talk with you, but what fun it would be)

Merry Christmas!
