Creamy Tuscan Spread

CREAMY TUSCAN SPREAD

One of the things that has always been on my bucket list is to go to Italy – along with becoming fluent in Spanish and skydiving. The Spanish thing, I mean come on. I live in Miami. I really have no excuse to not have learned it by now. Skydiving might have to wait until…well…never now that I’m a mom. Jury’s still out on that one. But Italy, ahhh. I’m sure I will make it there someday. No rush. Quite frankly I get pretty excited these days about a going to dinner and a movie.

But until then, I can get a little closer with this Creamy Tuscan Spread. Tuck this one in the “Seriously Easy and Divine” file. It’s filled with artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes, olives, and onions. You can serve it with crackers, baguette slices, or cucumbers for a low-carb option.
