There is less than a week to go until Super Bowl Sunday. Your guests are invited. Your shopping list is ready. You’ve picked up your home (as much as you care to). What’s left? It’s easy to forget the little things in the midst of planning a party, so to help with your event prep, I pulled together some ideas and must-haves. Super Bowl parties are often casual, and there’s nothing wrong with that. If you already need to get things like disposable plates, cups, and tablecloths anyway though, why not add some themed touches to take yours to the next […]
Hot wings are a fan-favorite at any gameday party. I think it’s become tradition for many to have some variety of these flavors at any given sports event, so I had to include my favorite version in my Super Bowl recipe series this year. These Giant Baked Hot Wings with Homemade Blue Cheese Dressing will be a crowd-pleasing snack at any event, and they are simple and hassle-free to make. You don’t have to point it out – I know these “wings” are actually giant drumsticks, and there isn’t an actual wing to be found. I can’t say I’m sorry about […]
Winter citrus is my favorite way to brighten the gloom of the season. Make this sweet, colorful, and highly adaptable Three Citrus Vanilla Marmalade any time you need a little pick-me-up on a cold day!

It combines some of my all-time favorite things – sweet and savory, pineapples and jalapenos, and of course, gooey cheese. I should begin by saying that I have a very special relationship with a good hamburger. If you were to ask me on the spot what my […]
Today I’m sharing one of my absolute favorite canning recipes, and the first preserving technique I’ve yet to post to the blog. If you like sweet and spicy heat, Candied Jalapeno Slices are deliciously addictive and this is the post for you! I started canning about a year and a half ago. Before that, I’d always assumed preserving would cost a lot to get into, both in equipment and produce. After a quick look online though, I found out I could get a starter kit (like this one or this one) on Amazon for around $10, and that my stockpot […]
I know it’s only January, but my mind has already been on the Super Bowl for months. I can’t wait for the game on February 5th, or more importantly, to the first real get-together we’ll be hosting at the new place. While I am not nor have I ever been a sports fan personally, my husband is a dedicated football fan. It would be hard not to get at least a little involved after being together as long as we’ve been. I think I even finally found an appreciation for the game itself last year. Now I can (mostly) follow […]
