Ah, the Super Bowl. In our house it's the first big party after New Year's and we're all ready to celebrate, eat great party food, and watch what we hope will be an exciting game.
We usually stick to Super Bowl recipes like stuffed potato skins, pigs in a blanket, and shrimp cocktail, but this year I thought it would be fun to set up a taco bar.
This setup is great for small to medium sized parties, and everyone can top their tacos with the exact fixings they like.
One of my favorite parts of working for publisher of food and home magazines and websites is that so many coworkers share my love of cooking, dinner parties, and sharing homemade food. Last week we sent off one of my friends in our fellowship program in proper culinary style—a potluck. The theme? Food from our hometowns. As my plate (below) testifies, we ate well.
It was technically autumn for our lunch date, but weather felt like summer and our menu ended up having a summery feel. We had to make the most of fruity, colorful dishes before the leaves turned.
