Super Bowl Snacks

Narrowing down snacks for the big game is HARD.  We cannot decide.  Potato skins? Steak tips?  I could just eat cheesy garlic bread. Who knows what we will end up with.  We had a Super Bowl potluck at the office on Friday. Lots of wings were had so we probably won't have those. Searching our past favorites is not helping the decision making process. Do you have your snack plan solidified?

Super Bowl Snacks: Dips!!

Are you ready for the Big Game this weekend?  I have more buy in than normal given the Patriot's are playing. In the end though I don't really care who wins but enjoy watching everyone else's excitement. I also enjoy the food.  Snacks, dips and desserts galore.  Mr. J and I are trying to nail down our menu for Sunday. I am sure it will include at least one dip. Here are some of my favorites.

Spinach Artichoke Dip

Super Easy Cheesy Queso Dip

French Onion Dip

Baked Feta

Cheddar Ale Dip

Pizza Dip

Baked Brie

Smoked Salmon Spread

Five Layer Mexican Black Bean Dip

Oatmeal Chocolate Bars

Hello again! It has been a long time.  We are still here.  Barely. January can be summed up with one statement.  Fighting illnesses, viruses and colds.  Despite hunkering down inside we have all been battling nastiness. 

It was not fun. Hopefully we are all on the mend now and stay that way till Spring.  I actually made these bars way back in December but never got around to posting about them.  (I considered getting laundry down a win last month.)

These bars are so good. They make a ton and are super filling. The fact that there is so much oatmeal in them makes me think they are healthy too.  :)  You get a hint of cinnamon and the sweetness of the chocolate.  Because even a small pan makes so many it is a great option for potlucks and any group gathering. Super Bowl party?
