Miss Bennie, who runs a bed and breakfast in Lynville, Iowa, concocted this spinach dip one afternoon before a wedding reception. She just made it up because she knew folks liked spinach dip and artichoke dip and then, she gave it a liberal dollop of three cheeses. Babes with Bullets’ (TM) campers enjoyed this dip in the old farmhouse kitchen recently.
You can enjoy it, too, as it will make the perfect take-along dip to tailgate parties and deer camp.
