Good morning…today we have a very special guest blogger.  This is Leah of Mya Bruce Designs….friend, neighbor, foodie, graphic girl, DIY Enthusist & jewelry designer (I hope I didn’t leave anything off)  Basically, she is awesome and I asked her if she would like to be a guest blogger today and she said YES!!  Woo-hoo!!  So in honor of my party peeps, she wanted to share some fun dips that would make you party menu legit …soooo…loosen your belt and get ready for some foodie fabulousness!!

**Make sure you read the entire post because there is a FREE recipe card download for you!! **

Here is Leah:

I sort of have an obsessive appreciation of food. Maybe I am spending my adult years racing to discover all the beauties of food after the 8 years I ate PBJ at school, just because.  I would like to offer you a simple party food makeover for the slightly daring.

The best thing I contributed at my office over the last 10 years – hands down =

DIP DAY!  WOO!!!!

I’m one of those people that would get giddy over just having loads of appetizers for dinner instead of a main course…. Sunday night dinner here is often just bruschetta, brie and loads of bread slices.
For holidays, the husband deals with the main courses, and I ALWAYS spend way too much time planning the apps & the sides. Those are the best part, right!? I mean, it’s usually the carbs anyway, soooooo….nuf said.

Back to dip day.

So I basically demanded that my office was implementing Dip day, at least once a quarter. Everyone had to bring in something dip-able, and we would just snack on it ALL day!  It was fantastic!

There of course are always the standards:

–         Ranch dip will never go wrong. Who doesn’t like ranch?!?!

–         The classic chili cheese dip is somehow always a big winner as well. You will almost always regret it later, but you will eat it like crack-dip all day until then.

–         Yes, you need some kind of veggie dip because those picky I-only-eat-salad-people will starve otherwise.

But lets move on to how to revamp this idea. Here are some great alternatives to make your party with simple snacks a little bit more gourmet.

HOAGIE DIP!


http://www.the-girl-who-ate-everything.com/2011/02/hoagie-dip-super-bowlicious.html

Come ON! Even the boys will eat hoagie dip. But it’s much more girl-i-fied here by making it pretty in a bread bowl, and topping on to yummy pieces of French bread.

PIZZA DIP!

Brilliant I tell you. Who doesn’t like pizza? And you can make this with all your favorite toppings, but it’s way more gourmet then trying to scarf a whole slice down off that small, flimsy party plate.

A great way to upgrade those veggie dip eaters…

CHESSY CRUNCHY ZUCCHINI FRIES IN ROMESCO DIP

NDIVIDUAL COCKTAIL GLASSES OF 7-LAYER MEDITERRANEAN DIP WITH PITA WEDGES!

Plus you know the kids would love it too, but it’s also fancy enough to make as a grown up dessert option.

Hey all, It’s Shannon, the new chick of Fresh Chick Design Studio.

So….Here it is, my first design!!! My husband and I are expecting our second child in May and  I thought what better way to start, then with a baby shower invite. I might actually have to use this one because I love it so much! My inspiration came from a simple white elephant shaped frame that I came across while looking for new bedding for the baby’s nursery.

The invite is now available on our Etsy shop. Full Collection soon to follow 🙂

Hello, hello!!  Ok…so as you all my know I am a design chick…graphics, parties and blogging all came from me needing an outlet to express my love of design and creativity…any kind of creativity…any sort of design.  With having two small kids graphics came naturally and seemed to be a great fit since I was somewhat homebound…and the parties???  I have always LOVED to plan a good party!!   This all has evolved into a look into my daily life…this is what I love and am so passionate about  but I have to admint my FIRST love is interior design and my DREAM would be to land a spot competing on HGTV’s Design Star.  A few years ago I submittted an audition tape to HGTV’s Design Star…I think it was season 2?  Well, not sure if my tape ever reached the hands of a casting director but I do know that I was not a contestant…LOL!!  Although, I was not a contestant on season 2, I am no stranger to HGTV…my start with Project Nursery came from submitting Brandt’s nursery on HGTV’s Rate my Space.  Some of my designs have even graced the front page of HGTV’s Rate my Space…most recently my holiday decor seen HERE.

A few of my gal pals from design school (my original fan club – Erlinda, Dawn & Heather) have wanted me to resubmit an audition tape.  Well, last year my “fan club” wanted me to give it another go but I was literally 9 months preggers and could not bear the thought of seeing myself on camera in that condition…yikes!  So that brings me to today…whew…season 6 is now accepting auditions!!!  The deadline to submit is January 15th…so that means 9 days to get my booty in gear and get some footage of this chick on film!!!  Wanna see some of my design work?  Click HERE and HERE…oh and HERE too!!!  So if you don’t see me for a few days…that is what I am up to (:  Wish me luck!!! xoxo~rebecca
