Happy New Year! Our household has finally settled back into a routine after the craziness of the month of December. Between me celebrating my 50th birthday and all the holiday parties we attended, I am so glad that things are back to normal!
In addition to attending holiday get-togethers, we have also been watching alot of football and are looking forward to Super Bowl coming up on February 5th. For those of you who watch football too, I am re-posting our Top 5 football snack ideas:
#1 - It isn't surprising to find a taco dip on this list. I have been making this one since I was in college years ago and every single time I make it, it disappears in no time.
Taco Dip For A Crowd
#2 - This recipe for Onion Dip was made regularly by a favorite aunt. She used to serve it with wheat crackers and I love it. Sounds weird to make an appetizer out of onions but try it and you will be sold.
Warm Vidalia Onion Dip
#3 - Meatballs are always a hit at parties right? This recipe includes 5 ideas for sauces. I am still looking for a great Swedish Meatball sauce recipe so if you have one, please add it at the bottom of the recipe page in the comments section (must have a Facebook account to comment).

#4 - Well this one is just downright wonderful. I make it for alot of different occasions but love it for tailgating because it is excellent on sandwiches too, especially croissants.
Buffalo Chicken Dip
#5 - And last, but certainly not least, is my friend Georgia's Beer Cheese. This recipe has been passed around among friends for years. We all love and it usually makes an appearance at several different gatherings throughout the year. Really convenient having only 4 ingredients.
