Fellow moms, it’s happening.  Teething!  Ah!  I have been so quiet on the blog because I have been tending to my little dude.  Last week was okay, a little fussiness here and there.  I think I was in denial about what was coming.  Monday thru Friday of this week have been horror days, particularly today. …

Nine Layer Taco Dip

We love this dish as a snack, as lunch or a great addition to any party spread!  The picture is a little off — we forgot to add the olives until after we devoured half of the dish.  It’s great even with a layer missing!  :) Also, a little note on the cheese, cream cheese…
