12 Classic Cocktails for your Super Bowl Party

Nothing quite says a Super Bowl party like friends, good food and classic cocktails (and a kickin' game).  There is a little something for everyone, no matter what your poison.  To tell the truth, we aren't sports fans.  I love a good game watched live, but the TV takes the magic out of it for me.  EXCEPT for the Super Bowl.  It's like Black Friday shopping, but for football.

OK, so only a woman could bring shopping into a football conversation.  So, back to the party.  Good friends (check!), good food (check!), classic cocktails...  Let's take a look.

Southwestern Mac and Cheese in Just 20 Minutes!

Southwestern Mac & Cheese was born in an attempt to make something awesome to feed my picky bunch.  Munchkin is going through a new phase, aren't these food phases fun at 3 years old?  "Mommy I don't want green earbs".  Yes, you read that right.  Green 'ear'bs! Well, that pretty much means every meal is going to be a struggle.

Dessert cocktails are always a hit in my house, as a matter of fact +Chad and I can agree on that.  A sweet cocktail that tastes more like the dessert than a cocktail is certain to please even your pickiest palate!  This Banana Split Martini is no different.

10 Minute Simple Peanut Butter Fudge Dip

I am getting so excited.  We are just a week away from Munchkins 3rd birthday party!  I have been surfing Pinterest for about 6 months looking for party ideas.  She is in love with Cat and the Hat, so that is the perfect theme.  Red, white and turquoise.  Polka dotted to Whoville and back (that is a Seuss reference, just in case you missed it)!

Citrus Twist Cocktail

Light and refreshing, I love the combination of citrus flavors in a cocktail.  Especially in January.  Every thing and nearly every one is focused on being, feeling and looking healthy.  Nothing feels quite as light as citrus.

Skinny Lasagna Roll Ups

I know you would never have guessed it (note the sarcasm here) but I have a bit of a love affair going on with pasta.  Just ask my scale (it is currently winning our 'New Years resolution' struggle).  Penne, ziti, spaghetti, ravioli, orzo, elbows, lasagna...  I love them all equally!

Italian Style Crock Pot Beans
