Fiesta Bacon Corn Dip

Superbowl Sunday is right around the corner. To me this means time to find the best appetizer recipes I can. I couldn't care less about who is playing. Heck I thought my husband was watching a Bucs game a few weeks ago until someone told me that, No, the Bucs were not in the playoffs. Last night I did find out that the Patriots are playing the Seahawks in the Superbowl and I even know that the … [Read more...]

I wanted to add some heat. Although I've never had a cheesesteak in Philly there is a restaurant across the street from me that flies there rolls in from Philly daily and I have to think it's pretty authentic.
