I’ve heard that everyone has a body double somewhere in the world. You know…someone who looks just like you, wandering around out there.
Enter in my good friend Kendee.
While my friend Kendee and I don’t look anything alike, we’ve discovered that we’ve led independent yet freakishly parallel lives. We’ve made a lot of the same life decisions without even knowing it.
Kendee and I grew up less than mile away from each other in Arizona but then headed our own ways. We both graduated from Computer Science. We both worked at the same Forensic Software company – which I didn’t find out later until I ran across some of her notes in some code I was working on. She loves food as much as I do and had her food blog Pimp My Dinner before food blogs ever were. And our husbands happen to be equally sarcastic and witty. Not totally uncommon. But they take it to a new level.
She even recently moved to Florida and as we were catching we looked down and noticed that our wedding rings were almost identical. This was starting to get weird.
Since we’re on the same life path, I guess it was only a matter of time before this spinach artichoke dip came into my way. Okay, I know everyone has a spinach artichoke dip. Heck, I even already have this Spinach Artichoke Dip. But as soon as I tasted this dip at Kendee’s house on Christmas, I knew I had found a new favorite. I could not stop eating this.
My other dip calls for creamed spinach, which I don’t always have on hand. I loved that this recipe uses ingredients that I almost always have on hand.
You can use frozen spinach or fresh. I love the taste of fresh and always have it on hand. I think I need a bigger bowl though to stir it all together. Don’t worry, the spinach cooks down while baking.And if you see my body double out there somewhere…let me know.
