Even if you couldn’t care less about football, chances are that you will be asked to a Super Bowl party or you husband will talk you into hosting one at your house. Either way, you will have to step up to the plate or oven as it may be and most likely prepare a delicious dish or two. We women know that it really is just all about the food and always seem to deliver when it comes to that department.
We opened up our recipe box here at Imperfect Women and looked through it a bit to see if there was a few things we made in the past that might help you out and we think we might have found a few.
Football isn’t football without chicken wings and Patty found an excellent recipe last year – Orange and Ginger Caramelized Chicken Wings. This recipe is from the kitchen of Chef Gordon Ramsay and Patty felt it was “simple, interesting and delicious”. She gave it a “five pie” rating!
Do you actually enjoy watching the game and are looking for ideas for something you can put together in the slow cooker in the morning and not worry about missing a play or a hilarious commercial? Try Patty’s Slow Cooker Pulled Pork Sandwiches. There is also an Easy Coleslaw recipe that compliments this perfectly. Here are just a few comments left under this post and you can see people were not disappointed.
- tried it all for dinner tonight. IT WAS A HUGE HIT! looooveeeed it! i was even asked to make it again! and i did it all on my own!!! first awesome made meal ever! thank you!
- Oh. YUM! If you haven’t tried this recipe, TRY IT. Definitely make the coleslaw. Two of us tried it on top- DELICIOUS! Two of us tried it on the side- DELICIOUS! WOW, I love the ginger and soy flavors.
- I made this yesterday and it was SOOOO good! It made the house smell delicious, too! Thanks so much for the recipe.
What about dessert? Are you open to something just a little bit different that involves chocolate, peanut butter and bacon? Yes! Then check out Betty Crocker’s Chocolate-Topped Peanut Butter-Bacon Bars. This post caused quite a stir back in June of 2011 when it was first posted for two reasons. One was that there was bacon added to the top of the brownie (who would have thought?) and the other was the way that Patty cooked the bacon. Parchment paper in the oven! Quite a few of us regulars here at Imperfect Women did not even know what parchment paper was, let alone that you could save yourself a lot of clean up time and have flavorful crispy bacon as an end result. Patty’s review of these brownies – The bars were surprisingly good given the odd combination. Salty, smokey, peanuty, chocolate goodness!
