Now that school is starting back, having a slow cooker is a handy appliance that can be a lifesaver. Author, Judith Finlayson shares how to create 175 different recipes in her latest book “175 Essential Slow Cooker Classics” and how easy and convenient it is. You’ll find recipes for everyday favorites to elegant entertaining as well as an array of vegetarian dishes, tips, techniques and photographs. I love this recipe for Spinach and Artichoke Dip. What a simple, brilliant recipe idea! Judith offers great tips in her cookbook. If you prefer a smoother dip, place the artichokes and spinach in a food processor, in separate batches, and pulse until desired degree of fineness is achieved. Then combine with remaining ingredients inc the slow cooker stoneware.
This recipe is fabulous for an appetizer for busy school nights, tailgating, football parties, Labor Day and more. Enjoy and be sure to check out this book at the link here.
