Labor Day Low-Fat Appetizer: Spinach Artichoke Dip


Labor Day is just around the corner, and so many friends have been asking me for recipes, especially appetizers. I prepared this today in Nashville on Newschannel 5 “Talk of the Town”. The television crew couldn’t believe this recipe was low-fat. See many recipes such as this in my new book, “Taste the Good Things in Life” which is available on my “Shop” page on my website.
