Hey good looking, what you got cooking! The Super Bowl is a huge event in my household, starting from everyone wearing their favorite team Jersey to screaming at the television when our favorite team is losing to preparing a big menu to eating all the food on the table.
Let’s face it, most of us plan on cooking or bringing our favorite dishes to the Big game. As host of the event, I’m usually given the first opportunity to review the menu and sample all the food before it is placed on the table, and if the food does not pass my GOBBLERS test then the food won’t be placed on the table for our guest. Talk about pressure.
This year, I decided to share the pressure of planning with sister, because she will be turning the big 50 this year like the Super Bowl. And trust me when I say, she’s feeling the PRESSURE, because we make sure that we never disappoint on this big day.
We want to make sure that you don’t disappoint your guest either on this big day so we decided to share some of favorite recipes with you. Tell us what you think?
