Welcome to another edition of Good Food Reads! I don’t know about you guys, but I have had one tough week. I got diagnosed with strep and then my kindergarten aged son got strep as well. I’ve been dealing with a sick one while being sick myself which is doubly hard. But once again, my amazing work family rallied around me and took my shifts at work to allow me take care of myself and my family. This Cocktail Edition of Good Food Reads is dedicated to them-because I owe each and every one of them a drink! …
It’s Friday, folks, and I think a lot of us around here are ready for the weekend. Brunches, slow cooked dinners and – let’s not forget – the Super Bowl on Sunday (go Pats!). I’m actually working a good bit of the weekend so I won’t be able to try may of the Good Food Reads until next week, but I’m still really excited about the great recipes we’ve gathered for ya’ll. Here’s to some Good Food Reads for your weekend!
Beer and Football, right? Well, here’s a more sophisticated take on basic beer for your SuperBowl Party this weekend: Pineapple Lime Beer Margaritas from Half Baked Harvest.
Bacon Cheddar Buffalo Wings (via What’s Gaby Cooking). I have no words. Just make them, mmmkay? Similarly, this Loaded Baked Potato Dip with Homemade Chips would be a total show stopper at any football party (via The Kitchn).
If you’re still keeping up that New Year’s resolution diet, here’s a healthier take on party apps: Buffalo Hummus Sweet Pepper Poppers (Iowa Girl Eats)
Smitten Kitchen takes on guacamole. Because you obviously are going to need chips and guac to go with your margaritas, right? Or maybe serve it with these amazing Jalapeño Beer Nachos from Sugar and Charm. Anyone else feeling the need for stretchy pants yet?!?
I love a good chili bar for serving a crowd. If that’s your jam too, try our Chipotle and Stout Chili or this easy weeknight chili, featured on Food52 (from the lovely Alexandra Stafford of Alexandra Cooks).
Since we do have to eat the rest of the weekend, I’m really looking forward to trying out these Pistachio Orange Blossom Biscotti with a good cup of tea tomorrow. Perfect for a little rest on the couch with a good book, no?
Ok friends, I’m off to work for the evening. Have a great start to your weekend!
