So first up, my Baked Goat Cheese & Bacon Spinach Dip. Can we just talk a bit about this dip for a minute?  About how tangy and creamy and bacon-y it is?  How this hot spinach & artichoke dip just might be my most favourite dip of all time (next to pizza dip of course)!  How you need to have it on your holiday appetizer list?

My mouth is watering at the very thought of it.
