Is anyone watching the Superbowl this weekend?  I’m not.

Is anyone cooking anything special for the Superbowl this weekend?  I’m not.

But I know many of you are either watching it or cooking things, so I’d like to refer you to my Game Day Recipes Post

Everything from (Kale) Chips and Dips and Hummus

I think my Cheezy Veggie Bake would also be a hit with game-day fans

Please Check out the Game Day Recipes Post for More Recipes and Inspiration! 

Everything in that post is vegan and gluten free, but you don’t have to tell the meat-and-potatoes-screaming-at-television-crowd that info.

And if you want more inspiration, check out Jenna’s or Jessica’s Posts.  Now, those girls can cook.  I really need to get my in touch with my inner nacho when I read their posts.

From my last post about my love for all things vanilla, glad to hear I am not alone in my vanilladdiction. I liked hearing how you incorporate vanilla in your life.  One can never have too much vanilla if you ask me!  And a few people said that you don’t “love” vanilla, but you do love chocolate.  I can live with that.

I think Game Day Fans would enjoy Chocolate Covered Oreo Balls.   I do.

1. What are your plans for Superbowl Sunday?

Scott will watch the game out of the house with friends. That way when screaming at the TV ensues, I don’t have to hear it.  Nothin’ but zen over here.

I am working.  I would rather be working than watching football.  Not really a sports fan.   Although the commercials are usually entertaining.

2. What recipes are you thinking of making?  Or what would like to be eating?

I doubt I am going to make anything just for the game.  I have to work and won’t be watching it anyway.

Plus, I much prefer sweets to typical or the stereotypical savory game day fare, anyway.   So if I do make something, it will be a dessert.  But I don’t need it to be Superbowl Sunday just to make a dessert.

Have a great day!

  1. I really don’t know anything about football, no matter how hard I try to understand it- it just never clicks! Either way, I love the social aspect of watching the game with friends so I’ve invited my grad school class over to watch the game! (we’re a small group of 10)
    I’m making your oreo balls for the party! Can’t wait :) I also made your coconut dark chocolate thing…but I ate it all lol

  2. I am definitely watching the super bowl!! I’m a Packers girl and I’m sooo pumped. As far as game day recipes, I need to talk with my mom about what she’s making, but I am definitely making your “puppy chow!” that stuff is so good!! Maybe I will try the kale chips, that sounds good!

    Also I love vanilla. I missed that post but vanilla is one of my favorite scents!

  3. Apparently I’m going to a Superbowl/hot tub party – don’t really watch football, nor can I partake in the hot tub, but I haven’t been to one before and decided what the heck – it’s an excuse to bake something. I’m bringing lemon blueberry cornmeal scones – not exactly football food, but they’re yummy all the same!

  4. I don’t watch the superbowl but I generally host the few family who live in town.

    Interestingly I used to have a crazy sweet toothbug since I gave birth to my first child 15 months ago I will choose savory/salty snacks everytime. (unless it’s dark chocolate with sea salt).

    I want to make the kale chips but the last 2 times I bought nutritional yeast it had ZERO flavor. Not even the slightest hint of that weird cheesiness I know it is supposed to have … Hmmm. What kind do you buy? Is it a certain brand or bulk?

  5. I’ll probably watch the game, but not really follow closely. I don’t care about either team. Boring!

  6. There aren’t words to describe how much iI detest football. I’d rather clean toilets than watch the Superbowl. But I might have to make guac regardless – who needs an occasion for guac??

    1. I’d rather clean them right along with you. I dont actually mind football. It’s just that I dont have time to sit on the couch and just watch tv for that long. I feel the need to be ‘productive’! Like all the time :)

  7. I love watching football- but I’m not team specific, I just like watching the sport because its sort of zen, and you can pay attention and then do something else for awhile and catch right back up. Plus, it gives me something to look at while drinking beer :)
    Maybe I’ll make this acorn squash/ mango soup I’ve been wanting to try.
    I need to add that that cheezy veg bake looks incredible. I’m sitting here at my desk eating, and it still is making my mouth water. Thanks for all the recipes!

  8. hah! like you, i am definitely not participating in superbowl sunday. never have, never will! i kind of hate football ;)

  9. to be honest…I dont even know who is playing in the superbowl! hahaha I probably will not do anything football related…Jason is not a football or really sports guy…he does the motorsports (and will be snowmobiling this weekend) so I will probably be hanging!

    that food does look delicious! I would go straight to the oreo balls!

  10. Not sure on the Superbowl, I’m not looking forward to it, but the family is. Great recipe ideas.

    1. Not sure yet, maybe a gathering at my sister’s house.
    2. Kale chips, maybe Gena’s new dip recipe, hummus, etc.

  11. I most definately AM watching the game. Especially since my team the GREEN BAY PACKERS are playing in it!!!! I am having a housewarming/superbowl party on Sunday and have about 20+ people coming over (mostly family). I am making 2 chili’s (veggie and not) and lot’s of dips, salsa, guacamole, spinach and artichoke dip, etc….. also lots of house cleaning to do as well…. but excited for the family time none the less!! I will be snacking on the raw veggies and hummus and eating my veggie chili.

    GO PACKERS!!! :D

  12. My fam is watching it hence i will be also…but my nephew will be there so i’ll probably be busy playing with him! We r bbqn on sunday! they are big meat eaters so there’ll be burgers, veggie ones for my boyfriend and some roasted vegetables. can’t wait to eat and have some drinks!

  13. As a Pittsburgher I am certainly watching the superbowl! But I’m more looking forward to hanging out with people during the game than the game itself. Actually I’m more excited for the hockey game earlier in the day. Whoops! Oh, and the Glee episode AFTER the bowl : ).

  14. I’m not watching the superbowl. Mind you, I don’t watch many sports, so no surprise there ;)

    I’ll be snowshoeing on both Saturday and Sunday. Saturday my hubby is having some people over for a “build day” – meaning scale models. In preparation for that, I’ll be making some of your coconut chocolate snow balls, and the crispy rice squares with chocolate nut butter icing. I’m sensitive to the glue that they use, so I’ll be outside in the sunshine & snow having fun.
    Sunday is more snowshoeing followed by house cleaning and food preparation for the week ahead.

    Will Skylar be watching the game with Scott? Does she like football?
