Celebrating Modern Jewish Living Through Food, Tradition, and Family
Cheesy artichoke dip is gooey, creamy, and golden brown right out of the oven. Guests say this dip is the life of the party!
The Backstory: When I met my good friend Kerri, little did I know she came with an added bonus: her wonderful parents, Mimi and Alan. How I love, love, love, Mimi and her husband, Alan. Alan feels like a second dad to me, and when I lost my own father in 2012, I sometimes turned to him for dad-like words of wisdom and more than a few comforting hugs. Mimi and Alan are just those kinds of people–you know and love them the minute you meet them, as if they have been your family for all your life. Some kind of Jewish geography but with real family connections. Oh, true story: Mimi and my dad actually did go to the same Brooklyn high school (Erasmus Hall), but at different times. Go figure. More of the Backstory after the recipe…

…The Backstory continues: Anyway, this delicious cheesy artichoke dip recipe comes to you from the lovely, Mimi Aaron. It is a scrumptious version of artichoke dip, baked with grated Parmesan on top until the edges are golden brown. Serve with small party rye or crackers for an instant hit–and better yet–double the recipe as this will surely go quickly.
