Super Bowl Recipes and Entertainment

Yesterday Maria Silva from FOX 5 News Las Vegas visited me in my home for some Super Bowl recipes and ideas.  It’s always a fun time in the kitchen with Maria, and here are just a few ideas we shared.

Easy Appetizers:

This “no-cook” appetizer takes just minutes to prepare, but makes a great presentation.  Click the image for this recipe for Reuben Dips.

Zesty Polenta Cakes Recipe:

This is a great gluten-free recipe for a side to the chili.  It’s the perfect substitution for flour tortillas or crackers.

Zesty Polenta Cakes


  • polenta, prepared- 1 chub (tube)
  • Staples
  • minced garlic- 1 tablespoon
  • olive oil
  • salt
  • dried oregano
  • paprika


  1. Heat olive oil in medium non-stick skillet
  2. Season both sides of polenta with salt, a pinch of basil and paprika
  3. Cook polenta rounds (slices) in olive oil until brown, approximately 4 minutes each side


Fun Super Bowl Ideas:

Party printables are an easy way to create a party for your Super Bowl day.  This fun sandwich wrap is a free printable from  Simply print the wrappers, cut them out and wrap them around the sandwich securing them with a piece of tape.

Super Bowl Party Circles:

I love printable party circles because you can use them for just about anything- cupcake toppers, sandwich toppers, napkin ring holders, etc.  These are my favorite Super Bowl Party Circle Printables from Lizard and Ladybug:

Popcorn Bar:

If you have guests from opposing team, this is a cute idea for you!  Buy gourmet popcorn in red and purple and set up a popcorn bar allowing guests to serve themselves popcorn in their team colors.  And with these adorable Football Popcorn Printables from Hostess with the Mostess, you’re sure to make some memories.
