Superbowl Sunday…the food

29 Jan

If you haven’t heard Superbowl XLVII is this sunday, it’s San Francisco 49ers versus Baltimore Ravens and the half-time show is Beyonce! Unknown

I like football, but like many of the game watchers this Sunday I will be viewing mostly for the great funny commercials and the food at the party…Oh and being a Clevelander, I do have to “boo” the Ravens.  So today, i am sharing a couple of my own appetizer recipes for you to enjoy while watching the game or the commercials 😉

First, artichoke and spinach dip that is easy, fast and a crowd pleaser!
