I make a simple spinach dip, I like the dip but it's just not as good as some i have when i'm out at restaurants.. this is how I make it

just a blond roux with 1/4 cup vegtable oil and 1/4 cup flour, then add 2 cups of milk slowly until it coats the back of the spoon, add a pitch of salt and pepper and then add 1/2 cup parmesan and 1/2 cup of monterey jack.

in a pan i simmer 1 bag of cut fresh spinach with a small diced onion

Then fold both together and then in the oven on 400f

...can you tell me where I'm going wrong??

Not just spinach, but this stuff is really good.

  More salt.  Probably.  The stuff you eat at restaurants has as much salt as all the jock straps in an NBA lockerroom.  

And I'd do 1/4c more parmesan and 1/4c less jack, but that's just because I love parmesan.

 Good deal.  Now add those artichokes!  Chokes are delicious even if they do look like alien pods.  Check your burps though.
