Spinach Dip Bowls and Giveaway #goodcookcom


Sweet Creations Bak-a-Bowl Brownie Ice Cream Idea courtesy of Good Cook
Have you ever seen anyone dipping away at a bowl of dip and double dipping (going back again after biting the same chip or carrot stick)?  I get so turned off by that.... I will not even look at the dip again.  Well I came up with a solution for this pesky problem thanks to the folks at Good Cook.  They allowed me to try out the most fun baking pan I have had the pleasure of using called Sweet Creations Bake-a-Bowl.  The possibilities are endless with this fun baking pan.  You can create a multitude of sweet and savory dishes and desserts.  One idea is to fill the pan with cake or brownie batter then bake.  The pan specialized design creates a well to make a bowl.  Then fill the baked well with ice cream and you have a dessert people will be running to eat (see picture insert). I decided that individualized spinach dip bowls would help me avoid the dreaded "double dipping" that I dislike so much. I was able to bake individualized bread bowls that I filled with spinach dip.  Everyone was allowed to dip to their hearts content.  The best part is they get to eat the bowl with the spinach dip and you don't have any dishes to wash.  I cannot wait to play more with this fun pan....

PS... this great pan is also available at Bed Bath and Beyond link here.

Tube refrigerated biscuits (I used regular size with 10 biscuits)

Spinach Dip:
10oz frozen spinach thawed and squeezed dry (must remove excess water for best results)
1 package vegetable soup mix.  (I used Knorr)
16oz  sour cream
1 cup mayonnaise
1 package
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 finely sliced green onion
pinch red chili flakes (optional)
water chestnuts chopped (optional)

Carrot sticks
Celery sticks
Cubed baked biscuits

Note:  I had 4 extra biscuits that I baked on the top pan of the bake a bowl pan set.  I cubed them for extra dippers. 

Note:  This spinach recipe is adapted off the back of the Knorr soup mix packet

 Defrost spinach then squeeze out all the excess water (you will see more than you think).  Add all the other ingredients to spinach and mix very well.  The spinach may be clumped up so you need to use a fork and really mix it well.  Chill for several hours in fridge.  I made the dip overnight.

 Spray the bake-a-bowl with cooking spray.  Roll out the biscuits with a rolling pin as thin as you can get them and make circle big enough to fill the well. Place the top piece of the baking pan on to create the well.  I baked my excess biscuits on the top of the baker.  Bake according to package instructions (about 15 minutes at 400 degrees) Take out and allow to cool to room temperature. Use an ice cream scoop to fill the wells.  Serve with dippers.  Enjoy.

  21. It may seem like all buildings have the same kind of roof, this commonly isn’t the case. Residential roofs and commercial roofs are usually quite different. The first thing that makes a Commercial Roofing Companies in Nashville different from the residential one is its design. The commercial roofs have flat designs and are typically not visible to the passersby on the street. Their slopes are very slight only to ensure proper water drainage. This is why they are commonly referred to as low slope roofing. Residential Roofing Dallas Tx is usually done by focusing upon its decorative and aesthetic purposes. Residential roofings have greater slopes, they are more visible to the people passing by the property on the road. They are made in a way that makes them attractive and more appealing to the public. They are easier to install and do not take much time to be inspected.

  22. Commercial roofs with efficient drainage systems that quickly transfer water from the roof surface into drains or gutters are always well-designed. The roof of a commercial building should drain water off completely within 24 hours. Commercial Inspection Dallas usually install roofs with a slight pitch design that directs the water towards the drain. Fast drainage is necessary because water collection can significantly overload the weight capacity of a roof. Not many people know this but there are two types of drainage systems; gravity drainage and siphonic drainage. A drainage system includes interior drains., edge drains, gutters, downspouts, and scupper drains. They work together to drain the water away from the roof and restore it to its dry state. Every roof needs regular maintenance. Most of the time people only go directly for repairs when they see a problem with the roof. Usually, they forget about the existence of the roof entirely. This is not a good practice. If you want to hire the Best Roofing Company Dallas Tx to check the condition of the roof and its drainage system you have so many options available. Dallas, Texas has so many commercial roof inspection companies that provide excellent roofing services.

  23. Have you hired Commercial Roofing Contractors Fort worth for the installation of a new roof? Well done! The roof is the most important part of any building and ignoring a damaged roof can only make things harder. Well, the first thing you need to do now is to prepare for what’s going to happen. First of all, you must make sure that the roofing company has access to your roof. Clear roads and sidewalks before the team arrives to protect the items from debris and to allow the roofers to work as efficiently as possible. Move vehicles and other items away from your driveway if at all possible. This keeps your automobiles, children's toys, and other valuables safe from falling debris or dust.Whether you have ordered Commercial or Commercial Roofing Companies in Dallas tx you need to be fully prepared. If you have pets or small children, make plans for them to stay with a friend or relative while your new roof is being installed. The noise created by roof tear-off and installation might be disturbing to dogs and small children. The construction material, debris, and dust can also be hazardous for the residents.

  24. Contrary to what you may think, the services provided by home inspection companies are not just limited to standard home inspections. Some companies offer many additional services. For example, Elite Home Inspections is a Best Commercial Inspector Los Angeles that offers multiple additional services like mold inspection, termite inspection, radon testing, and much more. However, these additional services are not considered part of a standard home inspection. So, it is quite obvious that you will be required by the Home Inspectors Los Angeles CA to pay extra charges for these additional services.

  25. Moreover, a house is not the only kind of property that is inspected by the inspection companies. Home inspection companies also perform commercial building inspections. A Commercial Building Inspector Los Angeles performs a thorough inspection of the building to make sure everything is in a good state. People usually tend to overlook the maintenance of commercial buildings, but it can turn out to be a dangerous practice. Commercial buildings require as much attention as residential buildings and should not be ignored. If you live in Los Angeles Commercial Building Inspectors can help you decide if your building needs some extra safety features, maintenance, repairs, or replacements. Once you know everything in detail, you can call the repair guys and deal with the issues easily.
