Super Bowl Sunday

Well Super Bowl Sunday was a hit at our friends house. Lots of food and lots of fun. The three recipes I tried turned out fantastic. I recomend using for any gathering any time because they were all easy and tasty! Here is how my Greek Layered Dip turned out and the recipe:LAYERED GREEK DIP
www.RecipeGirl.com

8 ounce package reduced-fat cream cheese, softened
1 Tbs freshly squeezed lemon juice
1 tsp dried Italian seasoning
3 cloves garlic, minced
1½ cups prepared hummus
1 cup chopped cucumber
1 cup chopped tomato
½ cup chopped pitted Kalamata olives
½ cup crumbled feta cheese (reduced fat is fine)
1/3 cup sliced green onions
pita chips and/or multigrain tortilla chips

Then I made a peach cobbler like cake, but added my own twist to it since I didn't have plain walnuts. I used the walnuts I had prepared for Baklava...which is simply chopped up walnuts, sugar, and cinnamon. This is the topping I added to the following recipe from http://www.bakerella.com/
(Cinnamon-Walnut) Peach Crunch Cake

24.5 oz jar of sliced peaches in heavyt syrup
1 package yellow cake mix
1 stick butter (1/2 cup), cut into 16 pieces
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup walnuts mixed with sugar and cinnamon to taste (until the mixture looks pretty dk brown)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
Layer ingredients in a 13 X 9 dish, in order starting with the peaches.
Bake for about 40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle is clean.

  Then I made one more thing...Milky Way Brownies. The original recipe I found called for homemade brownies, which are great but take forever and I had a limited time. So I grabed a box of Duncan Heins Dark chocolate brownie mix, followed directions on the boxm added a 12 oz bag of mini Milky Way chocolates chopped up and poured it in the Perfect Brownie Pan to create the most tasty brownie known to mankind:) It was a hit, although they would not easily come out of the Perfect Brownie Pan, due to all the caramel:) Forgot to take a picture of those...Hope your Super Bowl food was just as yummy if not yummier:)
P.S. The Sticky Chicken turned out fabulous from the previous nights dinner...tonight we are having South Western Wraps...already made, deforsting in the microwave for a quick and easy dinner tonight!
Good night!
