There’s something about eating chips and dips while watching football.  It’s just total perfection.  This weekend I was seriously craving spinach artichoke dip.  But in an effort to lighten up one of these all-time favorites, I decided to try something new.  I wanted something that still tasted like traditional football watching munchies.  So I went semi-healthy.  I didn’t touch the holy grail that is spinach artichoke dip.  I’m sorry, I just firmly believe that it needs every bit of mayo, cheese and sour cream that the recipe calls for.  So the only option was to change the vessel that you use to eat the dip.  And spinach artichoke stuffed mushrooms was born.  I still got to eat this yummy treat without quite as much guilt.

BBQ chicken flatbread pizza is football watching food perfection, in a nutshell.  It’s football season!  I’m sooo excited…and I just can’t hide it…But really, I’m excited for the food 🙂  I truly believe most people fall into three categories when it comes to football:  1 – die hard gotta watch every Sunday if my team loses I’m in a bad mood the rest of the week kind of fans.  2 – Watching football is ok but only if I have some tasty football watching food to munch on.  And 3 – Football?  Sundays?  What are you talking about?  I’m busy shopping, watching netflix all day or having all day long brunches with my favorite gal pals.  I fall somewhere between a 1 and a 2 (closer to 2 for sure).  My hubby is a 1.  So, on Sundays we watch football.  I half watch while I clean, cook and prep for the week.  So, for the first weekend of football I was all about making some yummy munchies.  And what’s better to eat while watching football than wings and pizza?  Nothing, the answer is there is nothing better to eat while watching football!  So this weekend, we started football season out right with a bbq chicken flatbread pizza and some yummy wings.

Seafood Fondue

Seafood Fondue…get in my belly!  This is one of those dishes that, once again, I had tried at a local cajun seafood place.  It was my favorite thing to get there, but at $14.95 a pop it was getting old quick.  I loooove to go out to eat but you know what I love even more?  When I can make the same thing at home!  So, after playing around a bit, I’ve been able to make an even better version of McAdoos Seafood Company’s seafood fondue.

Jalapeno Artichoke Dip – Costco Clone

This dip. GUYS. You have to try it. Creamy jalapeño artichoke dip. Yum, yum, YUM! Have you ever had the Costco version of this? It’s surprisingly delicious (and even more so when warmed up a bit!). What is it about dips?  They are so tasty and so easy!  We should all be making dips at home on a regular basis.  In my quest for duplicating restaurant/store bought items, I decided to give this a try. It was much easier than I thought. There’s only 5 ingredients – jalapeños, artichokes, cream cheese, mayo, and parmesan cheese. I played around until I found a version that I liked, and here it is.
