rebecca gordon buttermilk lipstick Southern Recipes & How To's Easy Tailgate Recipes RebeccaGordon ButtermilkLipstickThe Technique

The Spinach

Thaw the spinach in the refrigerator overnight & drain well.
Wrap in several layers of paper towels & ring out the excess water.

If the spinach looks stringy,
run your knife through it several times to chop a tad more.

The Artichokes

Smaller artichokes will be more tender.
Size down if you can’t find the medium ones.

The Scallions

The size of scallions can vary.
Reduce from 4 to 2 if they’re on the larger side.

The Parmesan

Use a microplane grater to shred the Parmesan cheese.
Pack it in the cup to ensure an accurate measurement.
