Happy last week of 2015, y’all! Have you been having a happy holiday season? If you’re anything like me, you’ve been over-indulging in all things fattening and fun!
And not that I’m complaining, but can someone please tell me what in tarnation is up with this weather? I do realize that I live in the south, but it was 78 degrees here on Saturday? It’s been hot, rainy (most of the time), and humid for the last week or so.
It’s the end of December and we slept with the windows open the last two nights. Fortunately, we didn’t get homicided. I woke up Sunday morning with a spring-like breeze coming in the windows, the sun shining, and the birds chirping like it’s the middle of June! My apologies to my friends in the colder climates.
I was all comfy under the covers with the mistaken belief that I was in the middle of my summer vacation. It’s true that I’m on (a much needed!) stay-cation, but we’re a long way from summer. It’s almost New Year’s Eve! And that means more partying!
Every good party needs some dip, so I bring you this artichoke dip (no spinach) that’s totally easy and always a hit. A friend of mine gave me this recipe a long time ago. It only requires three ingredients and about thirty minutes in the oven.
Yes. Mayonaise is involved here and so are artichokes and parmesan. That’s it. I apologize for the photo of a big blob of mayo, but Jennifer
demands politely requests pics of steps and I try to oblige or she throws a hissy fit is heartbroken.
Anyway, everyone needs an easy go-to dip for a holiday party and I’ve totally got your back. Seriously, a 5 year old could make this.
And y’all be sure to check back on Thursday for a delicious cocktail and we’ll totally ring in 2016 in style!
Artichoke Party Dip or Appetizer

- 1 can artichoke hearts chopped

Transfer mixture to a baking dish
Sprinkle remaining parmesan over top
Bake 30-35 minutes, until golden and bubbly

Hahaha…a 5 year old could make this! 🙂 That’s how we like to roll on New Year’s Eve. Nice and easy. And wouldn’t you know it but the snows are finally showing up tonight. It was 75 up here on Christmas Eve. 75! But now we have 6-9″ of snow coming tonight. I gotta go find my snow shovel…
Oh my! That’s a lot of snow coming your way! It’s still hot and humid here, but I’m totally not complaining! Although, I’m a bit concerned about what February will be brining because that’s typically when we get our worst weather.

It has totally felt like spring here! I’ve been disappointed, I won’t lie… when I moved here from FL, I was hoping for a cold Christmas. Shoot, I got all the rain and warm weather in December I needed (for a lifetime) back in the sunshine state! 😉 I guess I will just have to stay in my pj’s and eat my disappointment by devouring vats of this artichoke dip! I personally love artichoke dip, but Boy is not a fan, which is fine by me – More for Moi!! Love how easy yours is, Rachelle! Gotta try this! Cheers, doll – to a fabulous New Year! xo
I’m never disappointed when it’s warm in the winter, girlfriend! You’re just spoiled because you lived in Florida! Wait until we start getting ice storms in February! You’ll be wishing for this heat wave! There’s nothing wrong with hanging in your pj’s and snarfing up some artichoke dip – even better when you don’t have to share! Cheers to a totally fab New Year! XOXO

That golden brown top looks like something I just need to dive into! And global warming truly has been the grinch who stole christmas- 73 degrees in DC?! I was hoping for snow :/
This heat wave is totally confusing (but welcome to me!), Medha! Enjoy your break from school and hopefully there are some snow days in your future!
I hear you! We were in the mountains for Christmas – certainly anticipating snow – no such luck! I will say, tiny flakes are flying now and we’re very happy about it! Speaking of happy…3 ingredient artichoke dip? I am all over it! Thank you, dear! Happy New Year!
Happy New Year, Annie! I hope your flakes turned into something more exciting!

It’s been surprisingly chilly here in SoCal this winter. I woke up to a frosted lawn yesterday morning and for one crazy moment, I thought it had snowed!
I love artichoke dip, but I had no idea it could be so easy to make! This recipe looks delicious. I’m definitely putting it on my New Year’s appetizers list.
Cold in SoCal and hot in NC? Something just isn’t right here. I can’t imagine waking up to snow where you are! This dip is one of the easiest things I’ve ever made and totally worth including in your lineup!
Hahha it has been relatively warm for us too up north but I think we are cooling down soon. Appetizers are a must for the New Year. This dip looks amazing! I hope you have a great New Year!!
Happy New Year, Zainab!
Gayle @ Pumpkin 'N Spice
Artichoke dips are one of my favorites! This looks fantastic, Rachelle! I think I could eat this all! What a great New Years recipe!
I think I did eat it all! Happy New Year, Gayle!
A few years ago I didn’t like artichokes at all, but now I’m a total convert! This looks delicious! I’d be the one at the party who would make this dip disappear.
Girl, it’s already gone! 🙂 Thanks!
It was so nice while it lasted, the whole 70-ish degrees. Gonna miss it!
Love anything artichoke, and this is so easy! I’m down with it!
The heat is still here, but the rain is back. I’m down with anything that’s easy, Mir!

I’m glad you didn’t get homicided!! lol I am in Brazil and I am also suffering with the hot weather. (Except it’s Summer down here, so the hot weather is expected).
Anyways… this artichoke party dip looks so good. I won’t be cooking for New Year’s Eve – Thank God! – but I’m definitely adding this for my Super Bowl party menu. 🙂
Thanks for being glad I didn’t get homicided, Olivia! I wish I was in Brazil! This dip would be (and has been in my house) a perfect addition to a Super Bowl party menu! I hope my Panthers make it there!
This looks delicious and it’s so simple which is the best part! Happy holidays!
Simple is always a win! Thanks, Ami!
Jess @ What Jessica Baked Next
This dip looks delicious, Rachelle! Love how easy it is to prepare – definitely one to try for NYE! 🙂
Thanks, Jess! Happy New Year! 🙂

I could eat artichokes every day, and mayonnaise, and Parmesan cheese. This past week (actually since Thanksgiving) I have overindulged and am continuing to overindulge. It’s not pretty. This is one of my favorite dips, thanks for sharing it and reminding me to make it before I go on a major diet next year. It’s also great slathered on a piece of fresh fish and baked. That’s healthy. I can eat that on my new diet. Yay!
OMG! You are killing me with the hilarity and shenanigans, girl! I’m totally dieting with you starting next week! I just can’t take all these buttons blowing! 🙂
Kathy @ Beyond the Chicken Coop
Crazy weather! It’s cold and snowy here. I don’t mind snow when it’s winter time….in the spring, I want your weather! This dip looks marvelous! I’m all about appetizers for partying…or for dinner 🙂
I think you are the only place in the country with snow, Kathy! I’m all about apps for dinner! 🙂
Keri @ Fashionable Foods
I love dips of any kind so this is right up my alley – and super easy too! I totally overindulged (and am still doing so) during Christmas. Oh and this weather is nuts! My parents live in PA and it was almost 70º on Christmas – I wore a dang tank top for Christmas Eve because it was in the 70s. Usually there’s snow on the ground by now. INSANE.
Tank tops in PA on Christmas Eve? This is a totally nuts heat wave!
This is such a great appetizer, perfect for the holidays The weather here in the US has been messed up, definitely! Have a Happy New Year Rachelle!
Happy New Year, Mira! 🙂
Melanie @ Melanie Cooks
