What I would recommend doing is when you are eating dinner put her in a crate or another space. Do the NILIF method (Nothing In Life Is Free). If you google it online you will find alot of information to help. Some of the growling is normal in play and they are known as landsharks as youngsters.

This is something that can not be ignored. You may want a behavior specialist to come into your home to help you learn how to deal with it. I'm having someone come to our house as soon as we get over the h1n1 virus. I also agree with feeding by hand from now on and put her in the kennel while your eating dinner. Just because she misses while she snaps doesn't mean she will miss in the future. Taking her to obedience class will help too. Your puppy is adorable!

Kelev was like that...he forgot he was a dog for awhile. I did as the others suggested and also one other thing. For a time he had a lead on him any time he was in the house. Just a short one he dragged around. At dinner etc, my foot was standing firmly on the lead. He had no choice but to lay at my side.
At first he was not happy, but after dinner on the days he was not a pain, he got a carrot or two. He, like most GRs is very food driven. He now lays at my side with his head down whenever I eat.
May not work for all pups but it worked for him.

Sure is a beautiful girl! How old is she? Mine hasn't growled when we are eating but he has snatched things right from my kid's hands. A good thing also to do is never allow her to eat at the same time as you. If your crate is in the kitchen as is mine, put a towel over it so she doesn't stare and bark while you are trying to eat.
