My family is all about dip. Anytime we go out to eat, we get some sort of dip, as an appetizer.  Most restaurants offer Spinach Artichoke dip, so we've had just about any variation you can make. Years ago I attended a blogger event at Summer Fresh and they sent us home with the most fabulous kale dip. It was slightly sweet, creamy and delicious. Well, I haven't been able to find the kale dip in any of our grocery stores since then, so I decided to make a Kale Artichoke Dip.

It basically is the same as a spinach artichoke dip, but using kale in place of the spinach. I made ours using cream cheese, which is a base I enjoy in warm dips. This is a very simple dip, yet it's so addictive. I served it with some toasted Naan bread, pita chips and tortilla chips. Who would be able to resist it? It's creamy, savoury and full of gooey cheese.

Kale Artichoke Dip

1 bunch kale, washed, chopped and ribs removed
3 Tbs olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz cream cheese
1/3 C sour cream
1/4 C mayonnaise
1- 14 oz can artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
1/2 C Parmesan cheese
1 1/2 C Mozzarella cheese, grated
1/4 tsp salt & pepper

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Heat oil in a large skillet, over medium heat. Add in washed kale and toss to coat with oil. Cook for 1 minutes. Once kale starts with wilt, add in minced garlic and season with salt and pepper. Cook until soft; about 3 minutes. Let cool.

In a microwave safe mixing bowl, add the cream cheese, sour cream, mayonnaise and 1 C mozzarella cheese. Cook in microwave for 45 seconds and stir until smooth. Stir in Parmesan, kale and artichoke hearts. Pour into an oven safe dish and sprinkle with remaining 1/2 C mozzarella. Bake for 10-15 minutes, until cheese on top begins to slightly brown.


  1. I love that you used Kale in this recipe! I always have kale on hand so that will be perfect to try this recipe. Thanks!

    1. Me too, Kale seems to last longer in the fridge, so I prefer it to spinach.

  2. This looks delicious! I've done a similar artichoke dip but not with the kale. Pinned to try this later! I'm visiting today from the You're the Star link up. Have a great week Cindy!

AMAZING Crockpot Brown Sugar Garlic Chicken #Blogtober

 In this AMAZING crockpot recipe, t ender chicken is bursting with flavour and cooked a garlic and brown sugar glaze. Disclaimer: This post may contain affiliate links. As an Amazon Associate, I may earn commission from these links. I offer them to you at no extra charge. I originally saw versions of this recipe on Pinterest and it had my tummy rumbling so hard, that I knew I had to make it. I had chicken in the freezer, so decided to make this chicken on a day where I would be at school all day. Nothing like walking into the most amazing smell, when you get home from a busy day of work!  I love that this recipe is so simple, yet it is out of this world delicious. Sweet and savory combine, to coat this tender chicken. It literally fell apart as I tried to remove it from the crock pot. Once tossed with the thickened glaze, I served it with cooked rice/fried rice and some fresh snap peas. It was an amazingly fantastic crock pot meal, that I will be making again and again.  Crockpot Brown

Lemon Crinkle Cookies

  These Lemon Crinkle Cookies are deliciously tart, not too sweet, and pillow-y soft.  I have so many wonderful holiday baking memories. It wasn't until I was older, that Mom actually let me help her with all the tons of baking she did. When I was little, I'd sit and watch her work, fascinated at how easy she made it look. When I moved out on my own, my holiday baking tradition became one of re creating the desserts of my childhood. I went many years not being able to spend Christmas with my family, so my tradition was a way to feel closer to my them. After my children were born, I had wonderful plans for holiday traditions. Baking cookies, while the snow was gently falling outside. My children, prim and proper, not making a single mess, decorating cookies until they looked like works of art. Sounds pleasant, doesn't it? My wake up call came when my son was two. The cookie dough had been chilled and we were set to roll, cut and decorate our cookies. That's when I almost

Bacon-Mozzarella Accordion Garlic Bread

 A fresh baguette is stuffed with bacon, cheese and garlic butter, for an addictive appetizer. When we used to go out to eat, if it is on the menu, we would order a bruschetta type accordion bread. I thought I could make an awesome garlic bread, using the same concept, but adding ingredients that we totally love. We often like to top leftover garlic bread with mozzarella cheese, to make it seem new again, so I wanted to incorporate that between the garlicky slices or baguette. And we all know how AWESOME bacon is right?? This is a super simple, yet deliciously impressive appetizer. I'm sure your guests would all Oooh and Ahhh over the ooey gooey bread with bacon. They would be totally CRAZY if they didn't!! The kids really loved this too. The inside was soft and garlicky, full of cheese, bacon and nice fresh green onion. The outside was crispy and buttery.
