Spinach and artichoke dip is reminiscent of your high school days, where you'd hit your favorite chain restaurant up for half price appetizers and share them with ten friends. Ah, the good old days. But now that you're grown, your hors d'oeuvres should be more mature too. Enter, Freeman's artichoke dip. Stale chips have been replaced with just cripsy enough bread, and yes, they've gone and ditched the spinach, but trust us, it's so much better off without her. (Uh, it.) This artichoke dip has inspired hordes of devotees with its rich simplicity, reminding you of a time when you were less cool than you are now.
