Sunday is Superbowl, which to me means great food and commercials. Only time I actually watch the game is when the patriots are playing. I will share some of my favorite recipes for when we get a group together over the next few days. The first recipe is for Artichoke Dip, from a wonderful friend of mine named Darcia Tippets. Yes, it does call for 8 cloves of garlic, this is not a typo. It is very fattening, but delicious. It will seperate as it cooks, so don't be surprised. If you want to make it just a little bit more healthy (haha) you can add spinach to it.

7 to 8 garlic cloves
