My family and I love watching college basketball, so we are excited about all the big games that will be starting soon. The game is fast paced and unpredictable, and of we love to see upsets and surprises! Basketball is the perfect sport to watch with friends and family, and you can all enjoy snacks like this Onion Dill Dip.

Easy Football Sugar Cookies

Looking for an easy dessert to make for the Super Bowl this weekend?  It is simple to make these football shaped cookies without a special cookie cutter.

To make a football shape I used a circular cookie cutter.  First I cut out a circle shape, and then used the same cookie cutter to go over half the circle and make it a football shape.

Holiday season is all about parties!  We always host a big family party on Christmas Day and have lots of appetizers and finger food for everyone to eat until Christmas dinner. This year one of the appetizers I am planning to make is these Jalapeno Crab Bites, a delicious party food.

Jalapeno Crab Bites - Easy Party Appetizer

I like to have a large variety of food for our Christmas Day, because it is one of those days many people don’t each much for breakfast!  The excitement of presents means breakfast tends to be rushed, if it is eaten at all.  Everyone in my family loves seafood, so I try to include some every year.  A few years ago I made a squid appetizer, and that was not a big hit, so I figured I’d stick to something more traditional this year and make crab cake bites.  This recipe uses Tabasco Green Jalapeno sauce to enhance the flavor of the crab meat.

Pecan Tassies

Pecan Tassies - Traditional Christmas Cookies with buttery crust, brown sugar and pecans

Pecan Tassies are one of my favorite cookies, for Christmas or anytime of the year.  They are like eating mini pecan pies, with a rich buttery crust, brown sugar and crunchy pecans. They are easy to make too, and much less intimidating to make than a pie.  Instead of rolling out the dough in a big pie pan you simple press little balls of dough into a mini-muffin tin, and fill them with pecans and topping.

Football season is just about underway! Whether it is a club, college, high school or professional teams are practicing and getting ready for another exciting season.  My family loves to watch football.  This year we are making an effort to see more games in person, instead of just watching on TV, and we are planning to attend our first game this week.  Of course football also means snacks, so to go along with our first game of the season I created this portable SNICKERS Pretzel Snack with cute little football bags.

Quick and easy dinners are something every family needs, especially during this busy back to school season.  One of the best ways to make sure dinner is ready when you are is to use a slow cooker, and this recipe for Spicy Italian Beef Sandwiches is one of my family’s favorite slow cooker meals!  It is easy to make because it uses Vinaigrette dressing for flavor, so there are only a few ingredients and no complicated instructions.

This dish is easy to put together, and perfect for serving to hungry kids at the end of a busy day.  I headed to Walmart to buy my family’s favorite Italian dressing, Kraft Zesty Italian, for this meal.

A New Twist on Cincinnati Chili

The Veggetti®, gift card, information, and additional gift pack have been provided by Ontel.

My family and I love pasta, but sadly it isn’t always a healthy choice for dinners.  Lately we have been trying to cut back on the amount of refined carbs we eat, and one great way to do that is to replace pasta with “noodles” made from a healthy vegetable like squash.  I recently made the replacement in one of my favorite pasta dishes, the classic Cincinnati Chili.

Cincinnati Chili with Zucchini Noodles

It tasted pretty good with zucchini noodles, and then I didn’t feel guilty about adding a decent amount of cheese on top! To make the noodles I used the Veggetti, a new kitchen tool I was recently asked to review.  This is a simple little device that is designed to quickly turn vegetables into healthy spaghetti.
