Jalapeño Artichoke Toasts & a Giveaway with La Terra Fina! {Giveaway Closed}

Today I’m excited to bring you a giveaway that’s perfect for your holiday entertaining! One lucky reader will win a prize pack of two classic dips and one signature egg white quiche from La Terra Fina, a San Francisco based company that offers a full line of all natural (free of artificial flavors and preservatives,) handcrafted dips, quiches and special holiday baked treats.   You may have seen their dips at Costco and many of the new Greek yogurt dips are also available in specialty grocery stores.  You can search for a store near you here.

Entertaining, especially during the holidays, can be overwhelming and I appreciate a quality shortcut like a pre-made dip that tastes homemade.  I like to have a good spread of appetizers ready when my guests arrive and gather in the kitchen so I can focus on getting dinner on the table.  Enter La Terra Fina and a delicious hot artichoke dip!

DSC_0444  The last time we had dinner guests I served La Terra Fina’s Spinach, Artichoke & Parmesan dip with a vegetable platter and salty multigrain crackers.  It was delicious and easy to heat in the oven for 10-15 minutes at 350 degrees without any oil separation. DSC_0550  In addition to the dips, La Terra Fina will send the winner one of their signature quiches.  I’ve tried the Florentine Quiche that’s packed with spinach and artichoke.  The crust is rich and buttery and the egg white custard heats beautifully in the enclosed pie dish.  Like the artichoke dip, this too, tastes homemade.  DSC_0435

I like it with a little Sriracha on top!


This weekend we’re having my family and my sister’s new fiancé’s parents (follow that?) for dinner.  I’m excited to kick things off with La Terra Fina’s Artichoke & Jalapeño dip using this recipe for Jalapeño Artichoke Bread.


What to buy:

  • chunky Artichoke & Jalapeño Dip
  • 1 baguette, cut in small slices
  • shredded Parmesan cheese

What to do:

  • preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • place the baguette slices on a cookie sheet and spread evenly with desired amount of dip (about 1 tablespoon every slice)
  • sprinkle top with shredded Parmesan cheese
  • bake for 15 – 20 minutes or until cheese is golden brown
  • serve warm with freshly ground pepper

This post and giveaway was sponsored by La Terra Fina but all opinions are my own.


  1. It’s really fun to read your blog and try some of the recipes. You are so creative! Crockpot stew and Irresistible Baked S’mores are some favorites, as well as spicy buffalo dishes.
    For a “make ahead” dessert for entertaining, I like to make Toffee Cheesecake (a great basic cheesecake from Bon Appetit, January 1991). Instead of making in a springform pan, increase amount of crust mixture somewhat and divide into 30 foil liner cupcakes for convenient, smaller, individual servings. They only take 16 minutes to bake. After baking and cooling, these can be frozen. Top with caramel sauce & toffee bar or fruit when ready to serve. I used to make these for Grant so Abie could thaw and serve quickly when needed.

    • Hi there!! Thank you so much for reading and for letting me know you enjoy my blog. Toffee Cheesecake sounds fantastic – thank you for sharing. My husband likes any kind of cheesecake and claims that I never make it 🙂
      Good luck with the giveaway and happy cooking, Sally

  2. I love all of your recommendations and recipes (the pictures really make my mouth water) I’ve tried a lot of your dessert and cookie recipes, and they’ve all turned out great! Thank you for sharing with us! I’m looking forward to trying the spinach and artichoke with parmesan dip by La Terra Fina 🙂
