This is a pretty good recipe. I left out the tomatoes at the end. I highly recommend finely chopping the artichokes before you add them. It makes the dip a lot easier to eat and makes the dish more appealing to look at. Read More

I didn't make this in the bread bowl just in a casserole dish. Some of the guests were afraid of it...it just didn't look too pretty! (I guess that's the advantage of the bread bowl LOL) There was one guy who totally demolished the dip and said it was great and wanted the recipe so...I guess I could try it again.:) Read More

I tried to take even more of the 'sin' out of this by using fat free cream cheese and reduced fat Cheddar. I will NOT do that again. The dip turned out very watery and the fat free cream cheese sort of has the consistency of clay. Also I'm not sure I would put in the Worcestershire next time--it doesn't seem to go with the other ingredients very well. Read More
