Hot Spinach and Kale Dip

Hot Spinach and Kale Dip

Oppa and Kona

I never watched football before I got married.  However, I had a tremendous appreciation for the sport’s incredible influence and power in uniting people and instilling a pride for the team that they support.  Living in Austin, I’ve quickly learned that come September, it’s burnt orange time (although maroon has been making a strong showing lately…Hungryman prefers that I don’t mention that little tidbit).  To please my diehard Longhorn let’s just say that burnt orange is the only acceptable color during this season ;).  Emory didn’t have a football team so I don’t have to worry about being unfaithful to my alma mater by sporting the color myself.

While I would love to watch the games with him, with so much going on in my life right now, it just doesn’t seem likely.  However, since I’m such a wonderful wife (ahem..right, Tim?), I will continue to make him some delicious eats.

Hot Spinach and Kale Dip

Last week, I made hot spinach and kale dip, which was a HUGE success!  I got him to eat kale and actually enjoy it!  Head on over to the Healthy Aperture blog to see find the recipe!

  1. I was introduced to football by my husband too :) I have come to appreciate it, but like you, find it takes too much time to watch consistently! Catering though – that I can do ;) Great dip Min!

    • I can watch one or two games, no problem..but def not all weekend long like he does..In a way, I’m glad bc now I don’t have to feel so guilty about spending the weekend writing papers. Wish we lived close so our men can do their thing while we have fun in the kitchen ;)

  2. Oh yum! That dips looks like the perfect thing to top of a cozy Sunday afternoon! If you liked the dip, you should definately check out our “Ultimate Spinach Dip” we just posted about on our blog… everything from bacon to mushrooms! I even got my little brother to eat it!

    Missed ya at the Healthy Living Summit!

    • Ooh! Your dip sounds delicious! Love the addition of turkey bacon and Greek yogurt. I’m still trying to get my husband to like turkey bacon. I hope you ladies had a blast at the HLS! Hope I can attend next year.

  3. Wonderful wife? Absolutely right!! :)

    • Hehe I was going to say, let’s not make our readers barf..but then I read Nazneen’s comment below..I forgive you ;). Thanks, hun! Hope you have a great day at work! 2nd week of clinicals for me..

  4. Your husband is so sweet, I love his comment above ! Burnt orange is the colour in our home too, thanks to my children who are too young to go to UT but are staunch supporters because they are hardcore Texans! Of course, they are also UH Cougar supporters too.
    Coming from England, I had no interest in American foot ball and didn’t watch it for years. Then my husband happened, and he played in high school so I began to take interest. Was always sporty myself in HS, and now watch all NFL games with my hubby. I am a Peyton fan and thankfully he came to the Broncos so I could support my city! I am also a honorary Texans fan :)
    This spinach and kale dip is an awesome idea! We love kale anyway and I need to start making treats for Sundays. I’m a bit behind this year.
    Hope you’re having a great week Min!


    • Hi Nazneen! He is kinda sweet, huh? ;) Ooh! Can’t wait for Tim to read your comment! He loves his Longhorns and Texans!! Oh and he went to UH for pharmacy school ;).
      Haha, I like how you put it..”then my husband happened.” I can relate. Oh speaking of Peyton Manning…In college (so before meeting Tim with absolutely no interest in football), he came to our school (Emory) to speak at our senior banquet type thing. You can imagine… it was mad house. Everybody lined up to get his autograph, get pictures taken with him, etc. I thought they were crazy and just stuffed my face in the corner somewhere. One of my biggest regrets….

      I just read your post, Nazneen. So thankful that you’re well on your way to recovery and that your family and the house are safe!

    • Nazneen… Your comment put a huge smile on my face. It seems like our households would get along just fine :). I did my undergrad studies at UT and then pharmacy school at UH. Does that make me a lougar?? And although I was heartbroken for years after the Houston Oilers left for Tennessee, I can now proudly call the Texans my team. I’m a Peyton Manning fan, too. I’m so glad that he was able to come back after all that neck surgery. But I must admit…I do hold my breath every time he takes a hit.

  5. Yum, I love spinach and artichoke dip. This sounds great too!

  6. I just can’t handle football, luckily, my oldest son is starting to get into it, so, my husband watches with him instead :)
    This dip looks incredible Min! Love it! Thanks so much for sharing at Share Your Stuff Tuesdays!!

  7. Yes not only you are a great wife, but wonderful food blogger who shares the recipe with us! Gotta check the recipe. I love using kale and this dip sounds like great choice for people who don’t like kale (my family likes it, but at party… :)).

  8. This spinach and kale dip sounds amazing. I’ve been thinking about what kind of things I should start cooking on Sundays while my husband watches football, but I don’t want to go the greasy, fatty food route. This sounds perfect…cheesy and indulgent, but with spinach and kale it’s a little more guilt-free. I’m so glad you left a comment on my blog a while back, so that I was able to discover yours. I love your blog so far. Good luck with school. :)
