I don’t talk about food here often, but there is an awesome recipe contest going on this summer that I wanted to tell you about. I know a lot of you guys cook a lot between all the junking, decorating, and crafting. Even though I had much rather eat than cook, I do cook – occasionally! However, I didn’t make the recipe that I am submitting to the Summer Recipe Contest. Since Alex lives at Blue Creek Basement, she is the chief cook and bottle washer. Alex whipped up this yummy summer time dip in no time last night and it was ready to nosh on today…and nosh we did!!!
