Garlic Feta Dip

Welcome to the February installment of Secret Recipe Club! This month I got to meet Melissa who is the chief behind Born to Cook which is a blog that has a little bit of everything and then a whole lot more.  Her recipe box is chocked full of all sorts of goodies, so much so that I couldn’t decide on just one this month.  The Super Bowl probably had something to do with my dip indecision but nobody who tried either of these delicious dips was complaining!  These dips were so easy to make, in no time at all I had two bowls ready to bring to the party.  The best part was how well these dips went together, the strong Garlic Feta dip and the more refined Artichoke dip, making sure that everyone had something they would enjoy.

Garlic Feta Dip

Serves: makes 2 cups


8 oz feta cheese

8 oz cream cheese, room temperature

2/3 cup plain lowfat yogurt

6 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 tbsp dill

1 tsp oregano


  1. Mix all ingredients in a large bowl then cover, chill, and serve!!!!!

Hot Artichoke Dip

Serves: makes 5 cups


28 oz artichoke hearts, well washed and chopped

1 cup plain low fat yogurt

3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup Parmesan cheese, grated

1/4 cup provolone cheese, grated

1/4 cup mozzarella cheese, grated

1/4 tsp black pepper


  1. Preheat oven to 400
  2. Mix all ingredients in an oven safe casserole dish then bake for 25 minutes.
  3. Serve Hot!!!!

One of the guys at the party liked the garlic feta dip so much he was adding it to everything: chicken sandwich, potato salad, cheesy crackers, and everything else he could.  I’m just happy there are some leftovers so that I have something to look forward to when I get home from work tomorrow!  Thanks Melissa for giving me two great dips, I have a feeling I’ll be bringing these out again at my Downton Abbey viewing party in a few weeks.  I also plan to Veganize the artichoke dip, just haven’t decided if I want to go with soy or coconut yogurt…
