Hot Spinach & Artichoke Dip

I remember my 1st taste of Spinach Dip like it was yesterday......
It was in the TGIFridays in Eatontown and I was in High School. It was so cool to finally be independent and go shopping without any parents and then stop and have lunch at Fridays.
Oh so cool!
Ever since then it has been one of my top favorite appetizers. This one is so simple, you will almost scratch your head and think I left something out of the directions. But its so easy, there is no reason to buy it pre-made from the store when you get this yummy, fresh dip and then you can take all the credit. I have been making it for years and it always gets raves.
