• Eats for the Big Game – 2017 edition

    Today we’re taking a break from new recipes and we’re talking about game day food! I don’t know about you, but the food is hands down my favorite part of the super bowl.     Here are some of my favorite big game worthy recipes from the archives:   Spinach Dip   Loaded Baked Potato Dip   Pepperoni Pizza Muffins   BBQ Chicken Sandwiches   BBQ Chicken Nachos   One Bowl Fudgy Brownies   Cookies and Cream Cookies with White Chocolate Chips     I couldn’t forget about adding in the sweet treats! Plus I here are some of the things that are on my list to try this year:…

  • Spinach Dip

    Happy Monday! Today I’m sharing an easy appetizer that is not short on flavor. And since one of the main ingredients is a vegetable it’s got to be healthy, right?     This Spinach Dip can be made the night before, making it great for parties or just a treat for the weekend when you’re craving something creamy and scrumptious. I love serving this Spinach Dip with tortilla chips, but it can also be served with cubed bread.     The first time I tried this dip, my friend Tiffani served it at a party and I kinda fell in love. I love the extra creaminess that adding the cream cheese…

  • BBQ Chicken Nachos

    I know some people, like the man I am married to, like fall for football. And while football has definitely grown on me over the last few years, I might still get more excited about the food that goes with the game than the actual game itself. So today I’m sharing a recipe that is perfect for game day.     This recipe calls for shredded BBQ chicken. Now when I made these I had leftover Slow Cooker BBQ Chicken that I used. But you could use BBQ chicken you cooked on the grill and then shredded or shredded chicken from a rotisserie chicken that you covered in your favorite BBQ sauce. The…

  • One Bowl Fudgy Brownies

      I love a good brownie and I thought the ease of whipping up a box mix couldn’t be beaten. Well, I was wrong. With one bowl, seven ingredients you can pronounce and just a few extra minutes you too can make fudgy brownies that are even better than the ones that come out of a box!     If you like your brownies cakey, this recipe is not for you. These brownies are fudgy, melt in your mouth, fudgy. They have a nice crispy crust on them and are deliciously soft. These One Bowl Fudgy Brownies are unbelievably rich.     They are also perfect as the base for a scrumptious brownie sundae, like the Salted Caramel…

  • Honey Lime Chicken Taquitos

    There’s something about the combo of flavors in these taquitos, chicken smothered in sweet honey combined with cool and tangy lime and Mexican inspired spices, that is unique and unexpected. I find myself adding these taquitos to the menu when time is tight, which lately seems to be almost every night! The first time I made these we were surprised at how flavorful they are and they quickly became a go-to recipe. The spices in these taquitos are pretty mild so if you like things spicier feel free to up the chili powder or add cayenne pepper or even some jalapenos. Or if you want to get wild and crazy switch…

  • Pepperoni Pizza Muffins

      One of the things I learned when I married my husband was that pizza is considered a food group all it’s own and can be eaten multiple times in a week or even in the same day! While we love traditional pizza around here, sometimes it’s nice to change it up a little.     Today I have another great recipe for your Super Bowl party. These Pepperoni Pizza Muffins are pretty much perfect, no fussy ingredients needed and they can be made ahead of time and frozen until party time. Here’s to not being stuck in the kitchen doing last minute prep while the party is going on!     I found…

  • Loaded Baked Potato Dip

    It’s no secret around our house that my favorite part of the Super Bowl is the food! I must say though that since being married to my sports loving husband, I’ve come to enjoy more of the game too. To help you get ready for game day, I’m going to share some yummy options that are perfect for game day or any party.     First up is Loaded Baked Potato Dip. This is a recipe that is often requested by my husband and while being incredibly simple always gets compliments when I take it to a party. This recipe has 3 simple ingredients. Yep, you read that right, only 3 ingredients. You’re…
