Ecce Panis Bread and Creamy Artichoke Dip

As you know, Easter is just around the corner.  If your family is like my family, there is always a TON of food.  Other than pickles, olives and cheese, we never really have anything to snack on before the big meal though.

This year, I am going to make Creamy Artichoke dip and bring a loaf of Ecce Panis bread.

Have you heard of or seen this bread yet?  It is in the bakery/deli department of your local Walmart.  Oh! MY! GOSH! is this bread good!  I usually like to make my own bread but sometimes, I just don't have the time.  Ecce Panis makes it easy with their Bake at Home breads.  For this recipe I picked up the Neo-Tuscon Mini Boule.

I noticed on the package it gives a short description of the bread and even suggests what to pair the bread up with!  

My Walmart only had two options of Ecce Panis, the Mini Boule and French Baguettes.  I also picked up the French Baguettes for a recipe for later this week.  I will let you know later what I think of those.  If they are anything like the Mini Boule, I know it will be AMAZING.

 It only takes a few short minutes for the bread to bake and become a nice golden brown.  Your kitchen will be filled with the "Yes, I DID work all day to make this bread from scratch" smell.  Fresh baked bread is one of my FAVORITE smells.

For the dip you will need minced garlic....

Artichoke Hearts....

Mayo, Parmesan Cheese, Worcestershire Sauce and a few dashes of Hot Sauce.

Mix all of your ingredients together and place in a 1qt baking dish, I used a pie plate, then bake.

{Creamy Artichoke Dip}

1 Can (13-14.75oz) Artichoke Hearts, chopped
1 Cup Parmesan Cheese, grated
3/4 Cup Mayo (or Miracle Whip)
1/4 tsp Worcestershire Sauce
2-3 Dashes Hot Sauce

1 loaf Ecce Panis Neo-Tuscon Mini Boule

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Combine all ingredients in a bowl.  
Place in lightly greased 1qt cooking dish and place in oven.
Bake for 20 minutes.
Remove from oven and let rest.

While dip is resting, place bread in oven and bake 8-10 minutes following package instructions.
Remove bread from oven and slice thinly or tear into small chunks (if you want a more rustic look).
If you have sliced your bread top your bread with the dip.  If you tore your bread into chunks, you can use as a dip.

I would love to hear what you all plan to take for your #EasterMeals!  You can see more of my shop in my Google+ album.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
