Superbowl Eats and a HUGE Dilemma!

As most of you know I am a Huge sports fan.  I absolutely love the Superbowl.  It is like a national holiday at our house as I am sure many of yours also.  This year there is a small issue...No let me rephrase that a very large issue.  I have been a die hard Denver Broncos  fan for most of my life, but since moving to an area with professional sports teams, feeling the energy and being able to attend a few games I also love the Seattle Seahawks .   Both teams have heart!! How often does both your favorite teams make it to the Superbowl??  A couple weeks ago I got to fulfill a dream of mine and attend the playoff game between the Seahawks and Saints.  It was an amazing experience to be part of that famous 12th man crowd. To be amongst 68, 000 fans (and yes I did lose my voice.) It has been a lot of fun to see the spirit and energy everyone here is feeling.  You cannot go anywhere without seeing most people dressed in Seahawk gear, cars with flags attached to them, houses and build

Double PB&J Cookies

As you all have heard before I come from a family of great cooks and I love when they share their creations with me.  This is one of those from my cousin.  She is an amazing cook!  What a way to get the great combination of peanut butter and jelly together in dessert form and with double the peanut butter... OH YUM!! Double PB&J Cookies from Rhonda 1/2 cup butter  1 cup peanut butter 1/2 cup sugar  1 1/4 cup brown sugar  1 egg  1 1/4 cup flour 1/2 tsp baking soda  1/2 tsp baking powder 1/2 tsp vanilla  jelly or jam or your own choosing. (she used a mixed berry.)  In a mixing bowl beat butter, peanut butter, sugars and eggs on high until creamy white. Add vanilla. T hen stir in dry ingredients.   Take your cookie scoop and drop mounds on cookie sheet.  Press your thumb in deep and fill  with jelly or jam. Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes. Until lightly brown. YUM!!  She tried filling one with peanut butter and it worked too! Thanks Rhonda

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
