Super Bowl Menu By My Guest Blogger and Daughter KATE! :)

pizza roll ups

Super Bowl is February 2!!  We all know that is the ‘Black Friday’ of football season where snack foods are concerned.  Being at a total loss for my Super Bowl menu, my lovely daughter stepped in with a great suggestion!

Let me go ahead and preface this with I do not want to hear from health food fanatics this year about how unhealthy ONE DAY out of the year may be, because I did have ONE last year!  This is Super Bowl and if you want to celebrate it with ‘health’ food, please move on to a health food blog!   Now on to our SUPER BOWL FAN BUNCH, and my daughter will take it from here!!

PIZZA ROLL-UPS!

You will need:

1-2 cans crescent rolls

spaghetti or pizza sauce (whichever you can find)

grated cheese, preferably mozzarella

1 package pepperoni

This is what you do:

Preheat oven to whatever it says on the package of crescent rolls.  Roll out on a greased baking sheet.  Spread the sauce evenly.  Add pepperoni, or meat of your choice.  Sprinkle cheese on top of the meat and roll as usual.  Bake for the amount of time it calls for.  Goes great with Ranch dressing for dipping or marinara!  Enjoy!!

Dips of any kind are always popular at this time.  I say make it easy on yourself and do a Ranch dip or an easy cream cheese with crab and cocktail sauce…yummy!

Easy, Perfect Bacon Every Single Time!

EASY, PERFECT BACON EVERY SINGLE TIME!

Bacon has never been so easy!  If you can read this recipe, you can cook perfect bacon.  I have seen and tried many of the “easy”, “perfect”, “can’t miss” bacon approaches and this one is my favorite.  Simple and foolproof!

What you do:

  • Line a baking sheet with foil. This will make cleanup easier later.
  • Arrange bacon slices on the foil and place the baking sheet on the center rack of a cold oven  (Don’t preheat it).  Close oven door. Turn oven on to 400 degrees.
  • Check the bacon 17 to 20 minutes later. As soon as the bacon is golden brown, but not excessively crisp, it’s done. The exact time will depend on the thickness of the bacon slices, and also on how quickly your oven reaches 400 degrees.
  • Remove the pan from the oven. Transfer the bacon a plate or platter lined with paper towels to absorb the fat. You can pour the liquid fat into a heat-resistant container to save for other uses.  I usually use a glass jar with a lid.

Fun tips!

Sprinkle bacon with brown sugar or freshly ground black pepper before baking.  Yum, yum!!

Perfect Homemade Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have to plead guilty to baking refrigerated cookies for years.  Once I found this recipe, the refrigerated section will miss me from now on!  I hope you enjoy them as much as we do!

What you will need:

Makes 24 cookies (2 ounces each)

2 1/8 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1 1/2 cups regular semisweet chocolate chips

1 cup large bittersweet chocolate chips

1 1/2 cups walnuts or pecans, finely chopped (optional)

1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup light or dark brown sugar, tightly packed

1/2 cup white sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Dash of cinnamon

What you will do:

Heat oven to 375° F.

Sift flour, baking soda, and salt. Set aside.

Mix together chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Set aside.

At medium speed cream the butter and sugars until well mixed and light. Scrape down the sides. Add one egg. Mix for 5 seconds. Scrape down the sides. Add second egg. Mix for 5 seconds. Scrape down the sides. Add vanilla and cinnamon. Mix for 5 seconds. Scrape down the sides.

Add the sifted flour mixture in 4 batches, stopping before adding the final batch. For the first 3 batches, mix at low speed just to combine, scraping down the sides between each addition. When you get to the final batch of flour, add the chocolate chip/nut mixture. They will get a bit crushed. That’s okay. Mix until there’s barely a trace of flour visible. Don’t over-mix. Sometimes, it’s better to be safe and do the final bit of mixing by hand.

Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 8-10 minutes.
