~ 1 loaf French bread

~warm refrigerated cream cheese in microwave for one minute, in medium mixing bowl
~finely chop artichoke hearts and add to softened cream cheese

Is this the recipe for the bowl of goodness that you made for Jack's b-day party?

If it is... I can attest; the stuff is like crack :)
