Celebrate the Big Game with Mrs T Pierogies Recipes

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Millennial Central Consulting for Mrs. T’s Pierogies. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

Mrs T Pierogies Recipes

This past weekend I hosted a playoff party for our family and friends and at the top of the line up of appetizers were these delicious Mrs. T pierogies. After making them for a girls night in a few weeks ago I decided they’d be the perfect addition to our game day meal.

I kept it simple and grabbed a box of my favorite low-fat potato and cheddar pierogies and some frozen fire roasted onions and peppers from Trader Joe’s (a freezer staple in our home) and cooked them up in some olive oil.

These were such a hit! Our friends loved them and they paired perfectly with the other dishes we served. They also tasted great with a beer in hand!

How to Create the Ultimate Super Bowl Party Food Spread

super bowl party food spread

While I might not know much about the NFL teams most likely to make it to the super bowl, I can tell you what super bowl party food I’ll be serving at our house on Super Bowl Sunday.

I find that there are 5 elements to a great Super Bowl: the teams, the commercials, the food, the halftime show, and the actual game. Now most of us like a few aspects while others prefer the whole package.

Me? I’m more interested in the food and the commercials! So I put together some suggestions for creating the ultimate super bowl party food spread.

How to Create the Ultimate Super Bowl Party Food Spread

1. Make-Your-Own Food Bar

One thing that is always super popular at our get togethers are the make-your-own food bars we create. From chili bars (seen above made with Wolf chili), to mashed potatoes, to make your own pizzas, letting your guests choose what toppings and add ins they put on their food is very appealing.

Plus it’s easier to set up and make! Simply choose a base and then add the toppings or add ins on the side in small dishes. This also works very well for desserts too! Make your own ice cream sundaes or floats like we did here at my root beer float party.

2. Classic Football Barbecue

Stick with classics like hamburgers and Hebrew National hot dogs. You can spruce them up by adding some bacon or including them in the chili bar so guests can load their choice up with chili and toppings.

This will take up less time for you because the burgers and dogs can be made ahead and guests can assemble their own.

If you are looking for a more challenging main course for your party, consider going all out with these delicious baby back ribs with homemade barbecue sauce.

Ahh… appetizers. My absolute favorite part of any party. Now appetizers can be your main focus, or you can simply add a few easy platters to your spread.

I’ve used a delicious artichoke and spinach dip for my appetizer here. Hot dips are always a huge hit and this one is a crowd pleaser. You can also try this delicious hot white pepperoni dip at your party.

If you’re trying to keep things easy consider picking up a few easy fixes like Alexia waffle fries or H.K. Anderson™ pretzels. And a veggie tray is always a nice addition even though my husband thinks otherwise.

4. Desserts

Desserts can be fun for events like these. I made these cute football brownies from a favorite recipe of mine but you can easily get away with a boxed package! And I let the kids help add the football strings to the tops with icing.

Other great ideas for desserts are Snack Pack pudding treats or an ice cream sundae bar. You could also consider making football shaped cereal treat bars out of your favorite chocolate cereal.

5. Drinks

The one thing I make sure to have plenty of come game day are beverages. From my favorite varieties of Shock Top (love their Honeycrisp Apple Wheat!) to the classic Coca-Cola, it’s always fun to drink from bottles at the game.

Water and iced tea are also a great go-to. Keep a pitcher out with the drinks and another in the fridge so you can switch them out quickly when one is empty.

Hot White Pizza Dip #LoveMyPhilly #shop

I’m all about the appetizers and desserts this time of year. The one thing I always love to make for guests is a hot dip to enjoy and warm up to. And my dips almost always include Philadelphia cream cheese. Because who can say no to that creamy goodness? In an effort to combine a few of our favorite flavors, I made this delicious hot white pizza dip with pepperonis.

We just celebrated my daughter’s 3rd birthday yesterday and boy was it a blast. Good friends, good food, and good fun. While in full party prep mode the day before I made a list of all of the items I still needed to pick up for the party. Including the ingredients for this dip.

I went into the garden to see what kinds of veggies and herbs I had. Luckily I had 6 gorgeous tomatoes, a ton of small red peppers, and some fresh basil, thyme and oregano. So those were definitely going into the dip. Then I headed to Sam’s Club to pick up all of the items we needed for the party. [Read more…]

Holiday Appetizers: SeaPak Spring Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce

I made this delicious spicy peanut sauce as part of a compensated social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and SeaPak. All opinions are my own.

SeaPak Spring Rolls with Spicy Peanut Sauce #PakTheParty #shopIt is officially December and I’m in holiday planning mode. That means seeking out the best holiday appetizers and desserts for our annual get-togethers and events. This weekend will kick off the celebrations with my daughter’s 3rd birthday. Not only are we feeding a large crowd, we’re also entertaining them as well.

When I decided on the party food I wanted to serve at her birthday party, I went with simple, delicious, and crowd-pleasing. Luckily these spring rolls are just that. By making a spicy peanut sauce to pair with the chili sauce included in the packaging, I can make a store bought appetizer more homemade. And everyone loves options, right? Since I can prepare the dip ahead of time I can spend more time with my guests. [Read more…]

Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

Thanksgiving Leftover Recipes

One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving, besides the giving thanks and being with friends and family, are the leftovers. The delicious, tasty, easy to heat up and eat whenever you please leftovers. I love Thanksgiving leftovers so much that when I started writing up this post I realized that I had no Thanksgiving leftover recipes of my own. Because I just eat the leftovers as is! Or in a huge, Dagwood style sandwich.

So I reached out and asked my blogging friends what they do with leftovers. And I’m so glad I did. Some of these dishes may sound a little weird, and others sound absolutely amazing. But they all have one thing in common. They’re delicious! [Read more…]

Corn on the Cob with Herb Butter

BBQ corn on the cob with herb butter

Is there an item of food that just screams summer to you? For me it’s corn on the cob. Every year my mouth starts to water as I think of the delicious ears of corn we’ll be eating come summer. And now we’ve taken it a notch higher with this corn on the cob with herb butter.

It’s so easy to just throw some corn husks into a pot, soak them, and then grill them up while grilling our favorite kabobs or steaks. And we don’t even have to bother with plates because the husks provide a great handle as we eat the corn.

The kids share our love of corn on the cob and as soon as they see in the store they start jumping up and down asking if they can put some in the cart.

Here’s the best way we’ve found to make the perfect barbecued corn and the best way to take the flavor up a notch… with herb butter!
