No-Cook Sun Dried Tomato and Artichoke Dip

sun-dried-tomato-and-artichoke-dip-1

  I was gamely cooking along through the hot weather with a pioneer attitude. “No matter what, nothing’s going to stop me!” I was baking bread, boiling scads of pasta, simmering beans for hours on the stove-top,  and baking cookies.
