Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread ~ a version of garlic bread you don't want to miss out on!
Welcome to the fall edition of #FreakyFridayRecipes! My recipe today is Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread. It's not my original creation though and that's the beauty of Freaky Friday. Started by Michaela of An Affair From the Heart, it is a group of bloggers who get assigned another persons blog among the group. It's all kept secret until the day we all publish our posts. It's a fun way to socialize among bloggers, get the opportunity to try someone else's cooking and in the process get to know them a little better each time. You will get to see everyone's creations in a link up at the end of my post.
I want to tell you a little bit about the blog and blogger I was assigned. This Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread comes from the blog, Who Needs A Cape and this recipe is from Lori Vachon. Lori is partnered up on her blog with her friend Heather. Their story is interesting in that they met on line during their pregnancies. They set up their blog to share family recipes and perhaps a libation here and there. It's been all uphill from there raising families and blogging recipes we can all enjoy!
From Slow Cooker recipes to Baking recipes, they do it all - even crafts! It was difficult to choose one specific recipe out of so many; it really was difficult! Well I chose this Loaded Artichoke Garlic Bread because we love artichokes and garlic and bread and with all the cheese I just could not resist giving this easy and quick recipe a try!
