So this past week has been super crazy for me.

I flew to Pennsylvania to be on the popular network – QVC. I won’t go into too much details about it just yet, because I could probably talk for an eternity about the whole process… but I will tell you that it was one of the neatest experiences I have ever been a part of.

So last weekend was a big one for BBQ’ing. We went over to my sister-in-law’s house for the 4th of July and I brought my Blueberry Crumble Cream Pie as well as a giant bowl of fresh guacamole.

I had made a batch of this Mexican Street Corn Dip to take with me, but we ate it all before it even got to the party.


It’s full of great flavors and the bits of avocado in it make it extra creamy and delicious.

    This sounds yummy! The ingredients list calls for crumbled cottage cheese. I have not heard of that! The directions then mention “cotija” cheese. Should the ingredient list actually indicate cotija? I have never used that either though I think that makes more sense. Can’t wait to make this………..
