  1. I have now tried six of your recipes and I must say that I am blow away!! I recently purchased another healthy cooking cookbook (a popular one that I will not name) and your recipes blow it out of the water! Your recipes are easy to execute and have turned out delicious every single time. This dip was a hit for a Saints game and when I brought the zucchini brownies to the office, coworkers begged me for the recipe! I have also made your lean meatloaf, zucchini with sage, buttermilk chicken tenders and chocolate chip cookie bars. I look forward to trying many more! Thank you!

    • Hey Lizzie!

      Thank you so much for the lovely compliment!! You have totally made my weekend. Next month we will have a new membership package that will include all the nutrition stats for each and every recipe on the site, plus videos and other brand new resources. You can also pre-order my new cookbook that has more tips plus healthy cooking secrets I’ve learned from working in restaurant kitchens and as a private chef. Thanks again for all the great feedback and visiting the site!!

  3. Just found you while stumbling and I’m so glad I did! I love recipes like this…I’m all about the flavor but keeping it healthy! Great site! :)

  4. I’ve tried other low fat/cal recipes for this dip, but nothing compares to yours! Used your recipe and served the dip to family this past weekend and they absolutely loved it and had no idea it was a reduced fat version. Just a hint for a different way to serve the leftovers – grill chicken breasts, cover chicken with Creamy Spinach Dip, top with reduced fat Mozerella cheese and broil just enough to melt Mozerrela. Yummy!!

  5. This is my favorite spinach-artichoke dip, you cannot even tell it is healthy. I made it for thanksgiving and it was gone soon, and everyone loved it.
