This next recipe I’m sharing is for Spinach Dip Bites. I had seen this recipe on Chocolate, Chocolate and More and knew we had to give it a try ourselves.You see, I’m obsessed with Spinach and Artichoke Dip {I noticed just recently that I haven’t shared any recipes for that on the site yet, so that will be changing shortly). Spinach and Artichoke Dip is one of my most favorite items to order at a restaurant. Served with warm tortilla chips, I could probably eat the whole thing with all of its cheesy goodness. Growing up I wasn’t a huge fan of Spinach (or Artichokes for that matter), but that has changed being an adult. It’s such a great combination of taste to me, and you can find that great mix in these bite-size and crunchy Spinach Dip Bites. They are so warm and cheesy and would be great for your next get together. The recipe is simple too, but I warn that you won’t be able to just eat one of these bad boys! We didn’t really change anything from the original recipe because it was already perfect. We just added a little extra cheese, since you can never go wrong with more cheesy!! 
Ingredients
  • 2 cups frozen spinach, chopped and thawed
  • 1 6 ounce jar Artichoke Hearts, drained and chopped
  • ½ tsp. minced garlic
  • 2 TB grated parmesan cheese
  • 4 ounces Cream Cheese, softened
  • ¾ cup shredded mozzarella cheese, divided
  • ½ tsp. garlic salt
  • pepper to taste
  • 1 can seamless Crescent Dough
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 375.
  2. In a bowl, combine spinach, artichoke hearts, garlic and Parmesan cheese. Blend in cream cheese and half of your mozzarella cheese. Season with Salt and pepper and set aside.
  3. Using a rolling pin, lay out dough on a cutting board and lightly stretch to a 8 x 12 rectangle. Cut dough into 2 inch squares, so you have 24 squared total.
  4. Lightly grease a mini muffin tin and place a square in each slot, gently pushing down to create an indent. (you don’t need to mold to the cup.)
  5. Scoop one teaspoon of your spinach mixture on top of each crescent square and gently push in, (bites will mold to your tin while baking). Spread the remaining mozzarella cheese over the tops of each cup.
  6. Bake at 375 for 15 – 17 minutes, until golden brown. Let cool for 5-10 minutes before moving from tray. ENJOY!

Best Restaurants in America If you eat out in the U.S.A. and want the best dining experiences possible, this guide is for you What makes a good restaurant a “best”? Food that’s better than just good, of course. A dining room and a level of service that suit the quality of what’s on the plate. A good wine list (which doesn’t always mean an encyclopedic one), good beers and/or cocktails where appropriate. And then the less easily quantifiable stuff: personality, imagination (or intelligent commitment to a lack of same), consistency. 101 Best Restaurants in America (Gallery) When we were a young website, way back in 2011, we drew up our first 101 ranking ourselves, making a list of the places where we, The Daily Meal’s editors, liked to eat. Taking into consideration our mood, our budget, and where we happened to be when we get hungry, how would we vote, we asked ourselves — not only with our critical faculties but with our mouths and our wallets? Where would we send friends? Where would we want to dine if we had one night in this city or that? By this method, we ended up with a shortlist of 150 places. Then we argued, advocated, and cajoled each other on behalf of restaurants ranging from old-fashioned to avant-garde, ultra-casual to super-fancy. Finally, we invited an illustrious panel of judges (restaurant critics, food and lifestyle writers, and bloggers) from across America to help order restaurants via an anonymous survey and tallied results to assemble a ranked list. Upstairs, the simple Scandinavian-style dining room is kitted out with tables that look like tangled tree trunks, carved by Tom senior. The ingredient-led 12-course tasting menu is constantly changing (you might spot one of the chefs picking a final herb flourish outside minutes before it hits your plate). Starters could include a mouthful of smoked eel and apple, or an exploding dumpling of ox cheek and lovage. A crapaudine beetroot slow-cooked in beef fat is meaty in texture as well as flavour, and local lamb is paired with turnip and mint. Even the bread with sour butter is sensational. Afterwards you’ll be grateful for the walk through the village to a pretty rose-covered house where some of the nine bedrooms have antique oak four-posters and copper bateau baths. Wake to the sound of cows mooing in the next field and head back to the inn for a simple breakfast of sheep’s yogurt with fresh berry compote and house granola or toasted brioche heaped with mushrooms and a duck egg. Unsurprisingly, the most talked about restaurant in Yorkshire is often full, so book it quick. By Tabitha Joyce.
