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 building with a big 12 on them.
The 12th Man light display on the side of the Russell Investments Center in downtown Seattle was created by owner CommonWealth Partners with the help of tenants. The Russell 12 stretches across 18 floors of the tower's west facade.
(Russell Investment Building in downtown Seattle. It stretches out 18 floors.)
Today I went into 2 different stores.  People were flocking around the Seahawk stuff, almost everyone had one if not two of more items in tow.  There are lots of businesses that are normally open on Sunday, but are closing early so everyone can watch the big game.  The radio stations all have Seahawk names.  I have never experienced anything quite like this.  I must admit it is easy to get caught up in the excitement....

Ok so I went a little crazy, but it was so much fun!! 
(My friend borrowed my Broncos stuff so that picture still needs to be taken)
At work they throw me under the bus because I am a Broncos fan, but hey can't I be a Seahawks fan too?? It all worked out well until..NOW. For I have to make a decision...See my HUGE DILEMMA!!!
One thing that is not a problem is food!! We have a few things that are a tradition like:
This year I'm adding a few new things like
Wings with Brown Sugar BBQ Sauce and Sticky Chicken Sauce (Pictures will come later!)
With chips and homemade Pita Chips (recipe to come later).
and for dessert by request: (even though I just made it last weekend)
We will be eating well!!
What are some Superbowl traditional foods for your family?
Now as for my dilemma..I'm hoping it is a good close game.  I'm guessing this will be a game time decision I will have to make, but obviously it is a win-win situation for me no matter who comes out victorious!
Enjoy the Game!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

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.
