There’s this one onion dip recipe that has been in the family forever. It’s made at every family gathering, and it never last longs. In fact, it’s so popular at these parties that my Grandmother has resorted to hiding the dip containers in secret places or writing “Do not Touch” messages on the [...]
This is one of those recipes that is an instant hit with any crowd of football lovers. Especially in Buffalo. Stuffed banana peppers are a way of life around here. Almost as much as chicken wings. Some variation of stuffed banana peppers can be found on just about every menu in the city, [...]
So, just because I’ve decided not to watch the Bills any more this year (yeh yeh, I know, we’ll see how long that lasts), doesn’t mean I’m giving up on Super Snackin’ Sundays. It’s still my favorite day of the week! And, luckily we have the NFL package, so I can still find the [...]
How hot and smoky do you like your foods? Do you love when spicy foods give you a kick in the mouth and make your tongue tingle? I love a good spicy snack.

Are you ready for week 2 of football? I am! Well, kind of. See, it’s this team I have been rooting for my whole life. The Bills. Let’s just say the 2012 season really didn’t start off with a bang. It’s just so hard to watch, and somehow ruins my whole Sunday. And, I [...]
Are you ready for some football? Because this girl certainly is. And, not just football, but everything else that comes along with it. For this family, Sunday is not just about football, but also about obsessively checking fantasy football stats, snacking on some great food and just generally being lazy. A day when not [...]
It’s the final installment in our Little Kitchen, Big Flavors chilled soup trilogy, and personally I believe we’ve saved the best for last. This restaurant-style gazpacho, just like the other two chilled soups featured last week, prides itself on fresh vegetables grown in the summer sun. In fact, every single vegetable being [...]
