Super Bowl Prep

Unless you've been living under a rock, you know the biggest sporting event of the year is this weekend. You probably also know how much money Americans spend on TVs, food, and party supplies in preparation for the Super Bowl too since every major news station likes to make it their "big" story each year. And let's not forget about all of the news articles and blog post that share statistics of our eating habits during the big game. But in my honest opinion, the Super Bowl just wouldn't be the same if you aren't watching it on a big screen TV while eating copious amounts of food and washing it down with a steady stream of beer. If you agree with me on this, then I suggest whipping up one of these fan favorites to enjoy during the game:

Pretzel Bites

These little guys make for great finger food during the game and they cater to a large crowd since you can provide guests with a variety of dipping options such as mustard or queso cheese. The recipe states that the dough needs to rise for an hour so don't wait until the last minute for this one.

Tomatillo-Poblano Guacamole 

If you like guacamole and need to put together a last minute recipe you will be thrilled with this choice. It will only take you 30 minutes and is pretty healthy for you too! The guacamole goes great with tortilla chips or baked pita chips. View the recipe here.

Mini Pizza Pockets


Love pizza, but don't want to wait forever for delivery on one of the busiest days for the pizza industry? Then make these cute and easy pizza pockets! Another advantage of making it yourself is being able to vary the toppings so everyone can have their favorite kind of pizza.

Peanut Butter Cup Crack Brownies

If you agree with me when I say one of the best combinations in the whole entire world is chocolate and peanut butter then this is your new drug. Don't even think twice about making these delicious treats. Just do it.
