The Weekend Dish: 1/29/2011

I have officially begun Super Bowl hoopla here on the site this week. Usually I love the game as an excuse to make all kinds of dips, appetizers and snack food (the next best thing to sweets!), but this year the game is especially sweet. My hometown Pittsburgh Steelers are back in it (3rd time in five years, or six seasons, however you want to look at it!), which is definitely cause for celebration. I have been brainstorming Black and Gold sweet ideas this week, but for the time being hope to help you with your own Super Bowl menu by showcasing some of my favorite dips and appetizers.

Now as always, you’ll find a recap of what was posted to the site this week as well as some bookmarked recipes from other blogs. Enjoy! :)

On Brown Eyed Baker This Week

Cookies for the Super Bowl – Whether you’re cheering for the Black and Gold (YES!) or the green and yellow, hopefully these cookies will provide some inspiration for your Super Bowl party this year!

Cream Cheese-Stuffed, Bacon-Wrapped Jalapeños – Super easy and insanely delicious. A must for your Super Bowl party!

Three Cheese Baked Macaroni and Cheese – I love homemade mac n’ cheese, and this version is especially quick without sacrificing flavor or creaminess!
