Spinach Artichoke Dip!


1 jar of artichoke harts
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1 Tablespoon Wor. sauce
1 10 oz package of frozen spinach
1 cup Mayo
1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
2 1/2 cups shredded Monterey Jack Cheese

First, preheat the oven to 350 degrees. :) Then, grease a baking dish (one used for casseroles). Then, cut the artichoke hearts into small pieces.

 Drain the spinach, then in a large bowl mix together the artichoke hearts, drained spinach, mayo, parmesan cheese, garlic, sauce, and 2 cups of the shredded cheese. Then, transfer this mixture to the greased baking dish. Then, sprinkle the rest of the shredded cheese on top. Let it bake in the oven for 15-20 minutes or until the cheese is completely melted on top. :) ENJOY!

Crab Dip

Are you going to a party in 5 minutes? Do you need something fantastic to bring, but don't have a lot of time? Do you like seafood? If you answered "yes" to anyone of these questions, then I have the recipe for you. :)

1 can of crab meat
Cocktail sauce
1 package of 8 oz Cream Cheese

First, get out a pyrex pie dish or something else of similar size and volume. Spread the cream cheese in the dish to form the bottom layer. Then, take the Cocktail sauce and form the second layer. You may need a spatula to help you spread it around. Lastly, open the can of shredded crab meat and sprinkle it on top to form the last layer. When you are finished remember refrigerate. :) Serve with Wheat Thins or any other yummy crackers or chips. :) Enjoy!


I have never made candy before this, and it is something that everyone can do. I helped my mom make it over Christmas break and we gave it out for gifts. People would think we slaved on it for hours, but it did not take that long at all. :)


2 cups Semi-sweet chocolate chips (1 bag)
2 cups Baker's sugar (this is finer than regular sugar)
2 cups butter (4 sticks)
1 cup chopped pecans

First, you melt the butter on the stove in a saucepan. Then, you gradually add the sugar. Continue stirring this mixture until the mixture turns an auburn color (kind of the color of carmel).

Then, pour this mixture on a cookie sheet and spread out. Place the chocolate chips on top of the butter/sugar. Let it sit for 2 minutes. Make sure to put wax paper down on the pan, so it does not stick to the pan. :)

Next, use a rubber spatula and spread out the chocolate. It is will easy to spread because it will be melted from the heat of the sugar/butter.

Then, sprinkle the chopped pecans on top. Put it in the freezer until everything is hardened together. Lastly, break into little pieces. :) 

Now, wrap some up and give it to your best friend, or just a friend. They will be your BEST friend after he/she eats your delicious toffee.
