Superbowl Sunday

Sunday, February 2, 2014 was a holiday. The Superbowl obviously!!! Not only do I love watching football on TV, but I also love the commercials. My favorite this year had to be the Doberwauwau commercial oh and of course the David Beckham one as well.

However this year I was even more excited since I made lots of tasty treats that were not only delicious, but also nutritious! I will be posting the recipes in the next few weeks so no fears!

Aged Gouda, Rosemary and Pecan Raincoast Crisps, and Cranberry Cheese 

Jalapeno Hummus 

Baked Buffalo Chicken Tenders

Baked Spaghetti Squash and Cheese


Question of the Day

Who did you want to win?

I was rooting for the Broncos but they obviously did not know how to play a decent game of football that evening. Oh well. Maybe next year the Cleveland Browns will make it! Hey a girl can dream right?
