Food, Wine, Rock & Roll

Part food blog, part jam session

I got a new crock-pot for Christmas from my mother-in-law and, as an added bonus, it came with this wonderful little crock-pot called the “Little Dipper Warmer.”  It’s entire purpose is to cook and keep warm things like dips and sauces.  It also melts chocolate for dipping.  It is really cool.  I am a huge fan of artichoke dips so, when I found this recipe, I decided to try it out in my new toy and it was delicious!  This can also be done in a regular crock-pot or on the stove top.


  • 1 6 oz. jar marinated artichoke hearts, drained and chopped
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/3 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon diced pimento (optional)


Combine all ingredients in the warmer.  Cover and heat 30 to 60 minutes or until hot.

Serve with tortilla chips or crostini.
