These nachos are the perfect appetizer for Super Bowl Sunday.  What makes them perfect is bacon!  Anything with bacon in it is guaranteed to be a big hit for your Big Game day party.  I got this recipe comes from the July 7, 2014 issue of People magazine.  These nachos are loaded with cheddar cheese and creamy avocado.  They are simply delicious.  I suggest that you top these babies with a dollop of sour cream and a jalapeno pepper.  This recipe is sure to be a winner!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

I like to use pickled jalapenos in this recipe.  I place each sliced jalapeno on paper towels to remove the excess moisture before placing them on the nachos.

Total time is 25 minutes.

This terrific recipe comes from the Sept./Oct. 2017 issue of Midwest Living magazine.  Nothing celebrates October like bratwurst, and this recipe is a perfect way to welcome autumn.  It was an added bonus that this recipe calls for quite a bit of sage, as I have sage growing in my garden.  The sage butter that is spooned over the dish makes it savory heaven.  I know I will be making this wonderful meal for years to come, and I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do.

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

You can substitute turkey bratwurst for the pork bratwurst.  Make sure you buy the uncooked variety.

When browning the butter, keep a careful eye on it.  Butter will burn!  You want a nice brown color, and the color of the butter changes fast.

Preparation time is 20 minutes.  Total time is 1 hour.

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil

  • 1 small green cabbage (1 1/2 pounds), cut in 8 wedges through core

  • 1 1/4 pounds fingerling pot...

This is a Weicht family recipe that has been passed down for several generations.  Whenever our extended family is gathered together, these brownies are always brought by someone.  They often disappear quick too.  These marshmallow brownies are perfect for welcoming September (and with September - Autumn), because they have butterscotch, chocolate, pecans, and marshmallows in them.  The ingredients (particularly the butterscotch and the pecans) scream Autumn to me.  Whether it's a family get together, an Autumn picnic, or a sweet craving, these disappearing marshmallow brownies are the perfect dessert for the event!

Bon Appetit!

Bacon, lettuce, and tomato sandwiches remind me of summer.  Summer makes me think of biting into tomatoes that are ripe and juicy (fresh from the garden).  With the 4th of July holiday upon us (for those of us in America), this salad seems like a great idea for the occasion.  One of the reasons it is so great is that you can make it ahead of time, so that you can enjoy the festivities without the time constraint.  I grew up in the middle of America, and this is a classic Midwest dish that you might see at potlucks and gatherings throughout the region.  This salad is simple and delicious.  It will set off fireworks of flavor in your mouth!

Bon Appetit!

Tips:

You can substitute the bacon for turkey bacon if you so desire.

I use miracle whip in this recipe, but feel free to use any mayonnaise that you like.

These adorable white chocolate bonbons are delicious and delightful!  If you like coconut and white chocolate, you are going to love these sweet treats.  They are easy to make, and it only takes a few ingredients to put these chocolates together.  Bunny Tail Bonbons make a nice addition to a Spring gathering of friends and family.

Bon Appetit!

I used Archway Coconut Macaroon Cookies.  Place them in a food processor and pulse several times to make crumbs.

Super bowl Sunday is fast approaching, and it is time for chowing down on game food.  When I think of game food, I usually think bacon!  This recipe is fast and easy to make, and your family and friends will love it.  I know mine do.  If that isn't enough for you, it also has bacon!  This party food will be a hit on game day (or on any day that you have company).  While it may be a cold day on Super bowl Sunday, this dip is served warm out of your oven.  So dig in and may your team score as big as this bacon dip will on game day!

Bon Appetit!

A few tips:

1.  I use real bacon in this recipe.  The original recipe calls for bacon bits, so I kept it in the list of ingredients for those that prefer to use the bacon bits.

2.  I like to use a high quality block of cheddar cheese and shred it myself with a cheese grater.  I find that the taste of a block of cheese far surpasses the pre-grated packaged cheese.

3.  The green onion can be thinly sliced rather th...
