Superbowl Sunday is coming up this next week.  Many of us will be having family and friends to gather together for some fun and of course FOOD!  I thought I’d share a few items that I’ll be preparing for the grazing table.  A must have on our table is chips and dips.  These two are favorites at my house.  Cream Cheese and Picante dip with Tostitos Rounds and Easy Queso and Fritos.  I’ll also have a little Country Pork Pate’ on hand maybe even a little Kaluga Caviar.  I’ll be the only one eating it so a small jar of caviar and creme fraiche and package of blini’s will do along with some red onion very thinly sliced and soaked in red wine vinegar and a jar of capers as an accompaniment.  Another couple of must haves are a veggie tray with Ranch Dressing and a relish or pickle tray with various kinds of pickles:  sweet, dill spears, bread and butter pickles and pickled green tomatoes and pickled okra.  I’ll usually get a request for Canjun’d Chicken Wings from the kids.  Another great idea is an Antipasto Platter.  If your headed to someone else’s house, how about taking along a nice snack gift basket like the Tailgate Party Time Pail.

Ok, you might want to include these Spicy Oven Fries for your Superbowl list.  They are spicy and loaded with favor.  They are great for dipping and go extremely well with any grilled or roasted meats.  Give them a try.

Spicy Oven Fries


  • 3 tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
  • 3 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch wedges
  • cooking spray


Preheat the oven to 400°F.  Combine the first 5 ingredients in a large plastic bag and set aside.

Coat potatoes liberally with cooking spray; place them in the plastic bag with cheese mixture.  Close the bag and shake until the potatoes are covered with the cheese mixture.  Arrange the wedges in a single layer of a baking pan coated with cooking spray.  Bake for 35 minutes until golden brown.  Serves about 4.  Enjoy!
