recipe - artichoke dip

recipes are few and far between on here but i do love to cook and thought i would share my artichoke dip recipe that's great for fall and winter. 
my grandma whipped this up years ago before we headed to her neighbor's house and i fell in love with artichokes.

it's super simple and a crowd pleaser for sure. it's also really easy to alter by adding spinach, using light mayo or a different cheese.. but this is usually what i do:

artichoke dip
2 cans of artichoke hearts
1 cup fresh shredded parmesan cheese, reserving 1/4 cup
1/2 cup mayonnaise (or just enough for ingredients to mix)
salt and pepper

- preheat oven to 350
- drain your artichokes and roughly pull apart leaves with fingers into a medium mixing bowl making sure to mash the hearts
- mix in cheese and mayonnaise until blended
- add salt and pepper to taste
- spread into 9x9 baking dish and top with remaining cheese
- bake for 30 minutes until slightly browned on top
- serve with pita chips, veggie chips or on crostinis

words from the very wise

"your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is what you do. remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. because almost everything - all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure – these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. you are already naked. there is no reason not to follow your heart. your time is limited. don't waste it living someone else's life - steve jobs

esby loves wool. and photo shoots.

photo shoots are loads of fun!
who knew? 
there was this little wool look campaign going on over at that i was emailed about and asked to enter.  i thought the concept was great - post a look wearing wool to remind the public how great this natural and renewable fiber really is.
due to timing (me? procrastinate?)... i missed the contest. but better late than never.  please head on over and LOVE my look by clicking here.  you know, just for fun.  (and add your own!)

thanks to two of my favorite people on the planet.. carrie and keaton.. for shooting with me on my rooftop last week.
can't wait to post more of my own looks as we continue to team up for more photo shoot fun in the future.

me:  cotton sweater - free people, linen tank - patterson kincaid, wool pants - madewell, wool hat - madewell, bootie - cole haan
carrie:  wool sweater - h&m, cotton tank - american apparal, pleated skirt - jessie james, wool hat - madewell, bootie - vintage
