Premier of Friends Friday! 4.19.13 - Veronica

We would like to introduce Friends Friday!
We will be hosting a weekly guest post from other bloggers!
 If you would like to participate please send me an email (can be found in the Sponsor Page).

Our first guest post is from Veronica over at Passion, Pink & Pearls!


Well hello Green Mountain Couple readers! I'm Veronica and I blog over at Passion Pink and Pearls where I write about just that; my passion for the Lord and the blessings He's give me, my favorite color which can be found just about all over the blog, and pearls, the best accessory and in life we have pearls of wisdom every now and then. Learn more about me and my sweet hubby (of almost one year!) here.
Today, Kayla is super sweet to let me tread in on her territory to share with you a tasty recipe that a few of my readers have been asking for. What is it?
Homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip
Yummyness Yall!

And yes that's how I'm going to explain it.

Several, and I mean several, weeks ago I posted on instagram a picture of homemade Spinach Artichoke Dip when Kevin and I were participating in Spring Break in the Working World. My instagram followers responded so much to it that I thought well I better go ahead and write up a little post on this! And you know, time got away from me and now here we are basically over a month later with the recipe...oops.

I had a hard time tracking down the recipe I used but I finally found it on Closet Cooking. Essentially the only thing I'd change from her recipe is less sour cream. You could taste it in almost every bite and it was just a bit too much. I also didn't use the chili sauce...we didn't have any so I just went without.

My favorite thing to eat with it is some toasted bread. I just picked up to a french loaf of bread from Walmart, sliced it up thinly, drizzled some extra virgin olive oil over top them (on a cookie sheet) and slid them in the over (350degrees) for about 10 minutes (until just crispy on the top). You can also serve it with carrots and celery if you want to try and make it seem healthier (it's not friends, sorry). Most restaurants will serve it with tortilla chips, we were out so we substituted fritos which was great!

I'd like to try Gina's Skinny version next!

Go check out the recipe HERE! I see no reason for copying and pasting it into my post, not my words to copy and her explanation is perfect.
Link up any of your pinterest inspired or remakes here:

Saw it. Pinned it. Did it.
I'd love for yall to come by and say hello. I love making new friends! 


  1. Yum! That sounds fantastic! Thanks for sharing, and thanks for introducing us to a new blog friend! :)

  2. That looks scrumptious! I've been wanting to try Gina's recipe for a while now.
