Taco Dip

The thought of showing up at a party with just a bag of chips have you running scared?


Bring this taco dip & impress your friends- it’s simple and delicious. You can make this using many short cuts or go all out – shred your own cheese, use fresh romaine & add some thinly sliced scallions to really show it off. Don’t own a 16” platter? Go foil and throw it when the parties over. This taco dip has been devoured by many little goblins at my house and you’ll be howlin’ at the moon with all the compliments!

P.S. Don’t forget the chips

“T Bird” and the Pink Ladies

Guess what happens when you take a bunch of adorable kids, add some material, candy cigarettes and a little sewing magic? Memories and pictures to last a life time!

Circa 1999, a classic costume theme of the “T birds and the Pink Ladies” from Grease.
I went like a bat out of H. E. double tooth picks and measured and cut jackets, scarves and treat bags times 6!!!

Sharing My Passions

Today I am CELEBRATING! It’s my 2 year anniversary of Mama Carp & company and I have had a wonderful time here with you!
Thank you for spending some time with me and cheers to another year of creative solutions and inspiring ideas!
So no doubt I’ve been a little busy as always…August I entered my Mistral quilt into my first ever quilting competition. I became a finalist in the MQX Quilt Festival and Wednesday September 24th I found out I took second place in the Custom Heirloom Show category! My quilter, Norma Riehm & I were beyond thrilled!!! I can now check off National award winning quilter from my bucket list- YAY!! Our marks were awesome and the whole experience was incredible! A huge thank you to Janet-Lee Santeusanio for encouraging me- I definitely caught the competition bug…. Not bad for Mistrals first ride! My family and I celebrated with champagne & dinner at Acqua one of my favorite restaurants ❤
