Friday Edition: Yummy Finds

So it's the first weekend in awhile where there isn't going to be a big nationally televised football game.  Woohoo!  What are you going to do?  The Husband and I are escaping for some much needed time away from jobs, stress, etc.  I can't wait!

But in addition to that I am also going to be planning our Super Bowl party.  We have never hosted one, so I am excited to find recipes to make.  I know many on-line foodie sites have "game plans" and menus, and a lot of them involve wings and chips and dip, but I wanted to highlight a few of the non-traditional menu ideas that I found.

YUMMY FIND NO. 1: Mac and Cheese with Buffalo Chicken by Bon Appetit
Mac and Cheese with Buffalo Chicken

Oh how I love mac and cheese.  And buffalo chicken.  The combination of the two is just unreal!  The recipe looks sinful.  But maybe if I make this without doubling the recipe, I would just be able to have 1 small bite, which would satisfy my craving, but not make me feel guilty!

YUMMY FIND NO. 2: Double-Cheese and Prosciutto Calzone by Bon Appetit

Double-Cheese and Prosciutto Calzone
More cheese!!  As the Toddler says: yummy-yum!  I love how the recipe calls for both mozz and fresh goat cheese, which, I think, would give the calzone a fresh tangy flavor.  And I adore that the recipe uses refrigerated pizza crust. 

What will you be making for Super Bowl?  Do you usually host a party?  Let me know if you have any tips.

p.s.  Remember the recipe I shared in my guest post at Big D and Me?  Well Pepperidge Farm featured it on their Puff Pastry Facebook page!  Check it out here (it published on Monday).


  1. Oh, that mac and cheese! One of my favorite foods you know :-)

  2. The Mac and cheese looks great! Have a good weekend. We always go to a superbowl party never have one. I usually bring a dessert - surprise I know :)

  3. I'm currently trying to figure out what we are going to make for Super Bowl Sunday...we are just having a few friends over!

  4. Would you believe I've never made a calzone? I have made a pizza casserole with turkey pepperoni that we loved, but never a calzone.

  5. Thanks for sharing this great recipes
