  1. These are delicious looking recipes. I am excited to try the Honey Mustard BBQ Wings first. The sour patch grapes look interesting.

  2. Oh my! These are just perfect! We are a big family, so having several of these delicious recipes would make a great Game Day!

  3. The problem is deciding which recipe to try first! I think my family would really enjoy the BLT dip bites and the Chipotle Burrito. Everything looks delish though. 🙂

  4. These all look so amazing. But I really want some of those grapes! I need to make several of these this weekend!

  5. Ooh I’m liking the appetizer ideas. It would be fun to try something new this weekend. Those philly cheese steak egg rolls would be fun.

    1. Thanks! The cheese steak egg rolls are a quick and easy recipe to make, but they seem a lot more fancy on the table!

  6. Oh my goodness, what a great list. Those wings sound amazing. I don’t think any big game would be complete without some amazing wings, LOL

  7. Those sour patch grapes look amazing and not typical game fare. My boys are looking forward to feasting this Sunday and I’d love to add something different to the buffet table.

  8. My team’s not playing this year- but I know there are many parties on our block regardless. We like to bake pulled pork in flaky biscuit dough, pressed into muffin tins with some BBQ and cheese for an easy to eat with your hands game day snack.

  9. Sour patch grapes?!?! How I have I never made these before! I want to make them every day – not just for Super Bowl Sunday haha

  10. Those Sour Patch Grapes remind me of little balloons. They are certainly perfect for the kiddos on the Big Game night!

  11. I love this list for the Super Bowl stuff. It gives me such good ideas of what to make and Sunday for the Super Bowl party. Those cupcakes look outstanding.

  12. Well, now I’m starving. Usually one recipe from here is enough to make me hungry, but all of these in one place? Good gravy, I want to eat. See? I’m referencing food already.
