This Spinach Dip is super easy to make and is SO GOOD! Way better than the store bought packet!
Do you guys remember a week or two ago when I shared my Sheet Pan Fajitas and complained about Facebook?
Okay, first of all, I just love you guys. I got so many comments after that post both on the post and on Facebook telling me not to sweat it, that I make great recipes, that they love what I’m doing, that they make and enjoy my recipes . . . . seriously. You guys are just the best.
Second, a friend of mine shared with me this great little nugget: If you have $10,000 and lost $100 would you throw away the other $9900 and dwell on that $100?
Isn’t that the best? It has really stuck with me and has genuinely changed my perspective. Just yesterday I got a super negative and unproductive comment and I clicked delete and went on with my day!
PS Those words of wisdom come from my friend, Kimber. You should check her out.
All of this is a lead up to tell you that I got the best email recently. In my 5+ years of blogging, this is maybe the best email I’ve ever gotten.
A few months ago I got an email from a reader telling me that she was struggling with infertility, and after reading this post about my own struggles with infertility, she had a few questions about acupuncture and my experience. I wrote her back and we exchanged a few emails. I moved and got behind. And when I finally reached out to her a week or two ago, she told me she was pregnant!! And said this:
“Maybe one of the reasons why we were successful this time was the acupuncture and the herb teas…and your story on your blog was the reason i first heard about this option and searched for an acupuncturist nearby. So thanks again for writing such personal experiences there. I’m sure it also helped other women wishing to get pregnant “
It caught me off guard in the most amazing way. It brought me to tears.
So that’s a little happy for you today along with this Spinach Dip Recipe. Honestly, that ^^^^ is way better than the dip recipe.
But the dip is pretty good too, lol!
There are a lot of spinach dips out there, and this is kind of an amalgamation of a few that I found. It was absolutely perfect with my Beer Bread Dip Bowl! This, the bowl, and some veggies and you have one amazing appetizer!
