Texas-Perfect Buffalo Ranch Artichoke Dip

By Charlotte on February 10, 2013 6:50 AM

Most everyone has a favorite artichoke dip recipe. We love this new, buffalo wing sauce-inspired version because it has a Texas-perfect kick.

This recipe is based on one from Wish-Bone that I discovered in December. I decided to make it for the family Christmas Day because it sounded yummy and, even better when you're busy, had only four ingredients.

 

You need only 4 ingredients to make this simple-but-irresistible appetizer.

Plus, you can have this simple-but-irresistible appetizer in the oven in less than 10 minutes and serve it up about half an hour later.

 

This Texas-Perfect Buffalo Ranch Artichoke Dip was a real hit at our house during the holidays.

Since then, I've mixed it up several times, including New Year's Eve when it was my turn to cook for our friends David and Catherine Ross. (We've spent the holiday together for the last 20+ years, alternating between houses. Don't you just love tradition!?) Heck, I've even started keeping the ingredients on hand for spur-of-the-moment entertaining because this updated classic is a hit with anyone who appreciates a little heat!

Slow-Cooker Barbecue Beef Sandwiches

Ready to Eat bbq - 600.jpgTexans like Bob and I are pretty particular about our barbecue sandwiches. We like them piled HIGH with lean meat that's been slow cooked until it's so tender it practically shreds itself. Add a sweet-and-spicy sauce that lets the delicious beef flavor shine through and you've got the main ingredients for one of our go-to meals.

Adapted from an idea in a Fix It and Forget-It cookbook, this simply delicious recipe turns everyday chuck roast into a bbq lover's delight. It takes around 10 hours, start to finish, but most of that time (9 hours) is hands off while the crockpot works its magic.

Mamma Can't Sing

When Charlotte and I go to NYC to visit our Big City son, one of our favorite stops is the Brooklyn Flea In Fort Greene. It's a smaller, urban version of Canton First Monday Trade Days and there's always something that'll catch your eye. 

Charlotte found the perfect pair of Justin cowboy boots (Size 5...yes, I'm serious) in this outdoor bazaar and I'm always looking for something to eat or drink (walking makes me hungry). They're usually three-deep at the counter for Dough (artisanal handcrafted doughnuts) and just the sight of the lobster roll at the Red Hook Lobster Pound makes my mouth water.
