Pigskin Playoffs and Potato Skins!

Are you looking for some pigskin playoff food or gearing up for the Super Bowl? I’m always looking for an excuse to celebrate anything with a potato and Food Network Magazine (FNM) came up with 32 potato skins toppings to match each NFL team which makes watching football a little more palatable for me!

Skillet Bourbon, Peach and Blueberry Crumble!

  We’re enjoying the fruit of the season and Bourbon, Peach and Blueberry Crumble is a celebration of summer fruit in a skillet! I used 6-inch skillets that I found at Cracker Barrel for Patriotic Berry Skillet Cobbler. My hubby is a fan of more topping-to-fruit ratio, which the smaller skillets are ideal for since they’re…

We enjoyed these meatballs this past Sunday while watching the Carolina Panthers play and lose to the San Francisco 49ers. . .*sniff*. .…

Pecan Pie Muffins

The flavor of Pecan Pie in delicious muffin, no corn syrup required! I saw these muffins on Trisha’s Southern Kitchen on Food Network.  I tweaked the recipe a bit after reading the reviews, reducing the butter, adding vanilla, salt and baking soda. These muffins got rave reviews at my husband’s office! The recipe makes 9…

Corn and Bacon Guacam-Olé!

Corn and Bacon Guacamole was in the May issue of Food Network Magazine in the 50 Salsa and Guacamole Recipes section. If you’re ever had Chili’s Fire-Grilled Corn Guacamole, this is one step better with the addition of bacon! Start with a chunky version of guacamole or cut/mash to your preferred texture~ To 2 – 3…
