It may seem silly but we like to eat soup when we watch football. Soup is great for a crowd and it leaves room for other finger food like chips and dip, veggies and sweets! :-) http://quitecarriedaway.blogspot.com/2013/01/tasty-morsels-soup-er-bowl-potato-soup.html

For get togethers I like making my Mom's cheese all but also a copycat hash brown casserole. Tastes very much like Cracker Barrell and an empty dish coming home is always a good sign. :-)

Quiltpecan/Angela said...

I will definitely be trying the pulled pork sliders. My family loves bbq! Sounds like our next get together recipe! :-)

I would love to win this! I do not have any of their cookbooks yet. I love making wings for my husband for game day. We use to buy them at Pizza Hut but I have figured out how to make them. I don't have a blog to share the link.

Thanks, Asia T.K.
