The weekend is getting closer and closer, phew! Is it just me or is this week dragging?

I’ve had a few kitchen mishaps recently (that’s probably why this week feels like a month to me). First of all my kitchen scales died on me half way through developing an AMAZING recipe that I have planned for you guys. Although I obviously could finish the recipe and it was absolutely delicious I didn’t have the exact measurements to share it with you guys, sigh.

I’ve also been forgetting the MAIN ingredient from the supermarket and only realising as I start looking for it in the fridge and over cooking pasta (only once but HOW WHY EH?!).

SO today I am reposting a recipe from aaages ago that I still absolutely love and make all the time.


Well because I posted this recipe way back when my blog was just a little hobby and I basically had no idea how to blog or take photos for that matter.

This artichoke dip recipe is absolutely delicious but the photo (yes only one photo) that I took and plastered on here for everyone to see was taken from an old iphone under kitchen lights on a dull day and looked very unappetizing. Even although I somehow thought it looked amazing at the time. HA!

This artichoke dip is super simple to make and totally different from the usual creamy spinach and artichoke dip you probably know.

This dip had fresh flavours and is so delicious and only calls for four ingredients (minus salt and pepper). All it is is artichokes, parmesan, garlic and lemon juice. Simple!

All the ingredients are added to a food processor and blitzed up until smooth and delicious and that’s it! Done in 5 seconds and ready to be devoured with some cheese and cured meats with some crackers or crusty bread, yummee.

    I LOVE artichoke dip. This reminds me of an artichoke dip my mom used to make for parties. As a kid it was such a special treat… heck it still is!
