Hello, my name is Alison, I write a blog called ‘this homemade life‘.  Not to worry, if you’ve come here looking for Baked Bree, you are in the right place.  Today she and I have decided to shake things up a bit by posting on one another’s blogs sharing the same recipe, but adapted from our own perspectives and cooking styles.  My version of this layered dip is dairy-free (vegan), while Bree’s includes cheese and sour cream.  Head on over to my blog to see her interpretation of this oozy, layered dip.

During football season, come game day, what we have for snacks is almost as important as what game is on. My family devoured this layered dip as we watched our favorite teams play this past weekend.  Whatever version you choose to make, it will be delicious!
