Let’s face it, the Super Bowl is less about football and more about the party and you can’t really have a party without good food. So we’ve gathered some of our favorite Super Bowl themed recipes to share with you. Enjoy!
First up, Crescent Pepperoni Rolls.
1 can refrigerated crescent rolls
40 slices pepperoni
4 pieces of mozzarella string cheese, cut in half
Preheat oven to 375. Unroll crescent rolls and separate into 8 triangles. Place 5 slices of pepperoni on each roll. Place 1 half string cheese on each roll and roll up. Sprinkle with garlic powder. Place rolls on baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes, or until golden brown. Serve warm with a side of warm pizza sauce.
Secondly, we have Poppyseed Ham and Cheese Sliders- because what’s a football game without a slider?
Recipe found at: Comfy in the Kitchen
1 lb deli ham thinly sliced
½ lb baby swiss cheese
2 pkgs (24 count total) dinner rolls
½ cup butter
2 Tbsp prepared mustard
1 Tbsp Worcestershire
1 Tbsp poppy seeds

Cover with foil and bake at 350 for appox. 25 minutes. Serve warm and enjoy.
We hope you enjoy the game and all of the yummy food!

Deciding whether or not to give the option of “plus one” can be a very difficult and sensitive subject. When has someone been in a relationship long enough to include their significant other? Should you feel guilty for not providing a plus one option? How do you handle guests that are upset with your decision? Basically the whole process is very stressful.
First thing’s first: stay calm. This is YOUR wedding, and you’re inviting guests who you want to add to your special day, not your best friend’s on again off again fling. You don’t have to worry about pleasing every single person in attendance, because the odds of that happening are astronomically low. Your guests are there for you and want to celebrate your marriage whether they are with a date or not.
Here are a few general ideas to follow. Try to group single guests at tables to sit with each other so they can party stag together. A large group of co workers or teammates can be invited without plus ones. If you have someone traveling from out of town who may not know other guests give them the option of a plus one so they are not totally alone. Whether they are dating someone or not, the wedding party should get dates. They did shell out quite a bit of time and money over the last year. It is also a good idea to address the invitation personally to dates. I think if you know their partners name without having to search social media it is safe to say they should be invited.
Ultimately this is your day and you should include only the people you want to attend.

Well, Christmas is upon us! This is a week full of get togethers, family parties, exchanging presents, and let’s not forget, lots of food.
This month’s recipe is for peppermint bark. It literally takes less than 25 minutes and it is sure to impress your entire family.
12 oz. dark chocolate chips
12 oz. white chocolate chips
2 tbsp peppermint extract
8 candy canes
*Note: The difference in chocolate chips makes a big difference in the taste. Use good quality chocolate chips for the best results!
Crush unwrapped candy canes in a bag. Place to the side. Melt dark chocolate chips in a double boiler. Spread on a cookie sheet and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. While dark chocolate is in the freezer, melt the white chocolate the same way and stir the peppermint extract into the melted chocolate. Immediately spread melted white chocolate on top of the dark chocolate completely covering all the dark chocolate. Sprinkle crushed candy canes over the top and place in the freezer for 10 minutes to harden. Take bark out of the freezer, break into pieces, and enjoy!
One batch of this recipe makes quite a lot of bark. I made some last weekend and this was my finished plate!
