Super Bowl + Sunday = True LOVE Always! At least around our house, it does. Even if you are not a huge football fan, there is oh’ so ~ much ~ to ~ LOVE about Super Bowl Sunday.

FOOD ~ FOOD ~ oh’ for the LOVE of FOOD! Along with Thanksgiving, this day is easily ranked up there among my top three of favorite food days. Y to the UMMY!

With that being said, DO NOT ~ I repeat DO NOT turn down any invites to a Super Bowl Fiesta AND if you get invited to more than one GO! . . . . Go to all and eat to your hearts’ content. Good times will be had, I guarantee it.

I also vote that if you don’t know a soul having a Super Bowl party, do one of two things. A. Have your own party, with ALL of your favorite foods and desserts and hoopla! B. Consider yourself invited to my house! :J

Ready. Set. Let’s create and bake a masterpiece of football ~ deliciousness.
