    One of my favorite dips (can be easy or complicated depending on laziness) is artichoke and black olives.


    Easy: Two cans of artichoke hearts, and one can of pitted black olives. Drain them throw in a bowl, add salt and pepper, and olive oil.

    ***OPTIONAL*** some minced garlic (one or two cloves).

    Pull out the stick blender, and make it smooth.


    Hard: Same as above, but steam whole artichokes (don't forget the get the meat from the bottom of the petals as well as the heart (discard the beard of course), and get some good premium black olives (and spend a whole lot of time removing the pits).

    ***SIDE NOTE*** Depending on the method of preparation of the black olives you might not need to add olive oil.


    I let y'all guess which is the tastier of the two...

    Garlic is never optional. It's mandatory.


    That sounds really good, and I've been meaning to buy an artichoke, as I never have before.

    Artichoke as comes in easy and complicated.


    Easy: Run under cold water to rinse, and make sure to get in between the leaves. Turn off water, grab some plastic wrap, and wrap each 'choke by itself.

    Throw them in the microwave for a minute, when timer runs out pull one out and try to remove a petal.

    If it comes off easily eat and enjoy, if not another go in the merry-go-zap.

    ***WARNING: THOSE BUGGERS WILL BE HOT


    Complicated (not really): Trim the top so that the 'chokes can stand on their heads.

    Put water in the bottom of a pan, a steamer, and the chokes head down (don't let the chokes touch the water).

    Slowly steam until the petals are easily pulled off.


    And remember: don't eat the beard! It's like a mouthful of hair... Yuck!


    And for this you might need 4 or 5 artichokes. The little purple ones are the tastiest IMO.

    Homemade Guacamole! Saute garlic in butter, add to pureed avocados, add lime juice, salt, pepper & other spices.


    I was eating mine with sweet potato spears, but I like the zucchini and squash chips idea better!

    I think I shouldn't have read that while I was hungry. I can't wait to get paid tomorrow so I can buy some FOOD. I'm gonna have 7 kinds of dips in my house now- lol.

    Oooh, SassaFrass good idea! I've never managed to add more fat to my guacamole before, but that's awesome.

    There will definitely be butter in my next batch.


    By the way, if anyone is lazy, a good, fresh (refrigerated section) salsa plus avocado makes a really fast guacamole. My bf and I are addicted to Santa Barbera salsas (I'm 90% certain they don't add anything evil).
