Bringing it Back {hot artichoke dip}

Bringing it Back {hot artichoke dip}

Hello, friends! My summer in the Windy City got away from me. It was eventful and busy! My first night I ate at one of Chicago’s best restaurants, Girl & The Goat, and the next morning saw one of my best friends graduate from med school.

I love breakfast. So does my family, but you wouldn’t know it because “breakfast” is a bad word in my parents’ house (I can hear my mom yelling “Emily!” right now, to which I say “breakfastbreakfastbreakfast!”). Anyhow, I wanted my family to have a delicious and warm treat on Christmas morning since we’d all be … Continue reading
