Hi friends! Happy Monday!
Whew, I am exhausted after my trip this weekend. I got to spend the last couple of days with some fellow awesome female bloggers as we toured farms in the Coachella Valley and Imperial Valley in California! The tour was organized by the California Farm Water Coalition, in an effort to create more awareness of the water issues California farmers face every day (and especially during our current drought).
The trip was SO informative, you guys. I learned a ton about what our farmers do every day and the process that brings the healthy fruits and veggies we love from the field to grocery stores (hint: it happens really, really, ridiculously fast).
Be sure to check back in to the blog later this week to read all about it.
I am currently sitting on the train back to Los Angeles (for me it’s Sunday night, but this post will go live tomorrow morning). Thankfully the train is pretty quiet right now, so I have two seats to myself and I am able to stretch out and type up this post.
Okay, now to the real reason for this post – my Super Bowl Recipe Roundup!
Even though I grew up in a major sports city, I hate to break it to you — I just don’t follow sports. I’ve just never had an interest, despite Travis’ best efforts to get me involved. (I know, I’m the worst). But, if I had to choose, I root for Boston teams because that’s my hometown!
Travis, on the other hand, loves sports so we always have a game on in our apartment. Even though I won’t watch with him, I will happily make snacks for him and whichever of his friends are over. The more recipe testers around, the better!
Today I want to share with you some of my favorite recipes for mid-game Super Bowl snacking and a couple of recipes that are a bit heartier if you’re looking to serve a complete meal this weekend.
Whoever you’re rooting for during the big game, enjoy!
Super Bowl Recipe Roundup!
The creamiest hummus + the best combination! Serve this dip with veggies or chips.
Nothing could be easier than this dip made from greek yogurt and feta. Serve this with whole wheat pita chips for a protein-packed snack.
No grill needed for this charred corn and tomato salsa recipe. Broil the vegetables in the oven for a delicious charred flavor! This one is a winner, for sure.
Okay, how many times have I told you guys that this is the best dip ever? If you haven’t made it yet,
what the heck have you been doing?, make it NOW!
There is no reason to buy these from the store when they are incredibly easy to make yourself. I love making them at home because then I can control the amount of added sugar. Can you say addicting?
There is nothing plain about this chicken after you add your favorite BBQ sauce, Buffalo sauce, or hot sauce. Add the chicken to tacos, nachos, sandwiches and more!
I seriously cannot sing enough praise for this recipe. If you make this, you may want to double up because they’ll go fast!
One of my favorite recipes I’ve posted on the blog recently. If you’re looking for something heartier on Super Bowl Sunday, make these! They’re a little messy, so be sure to put out lots of napkins!
