Football Fever!
Recipes for NFL Playoff Games
& Superbowl Parties

Who knows all the February holidays? The shadow of Groundhog Day, the romance of Valentine's, the Washington and Lincoln birthdays, sure. But the Superbowl is February's favorite "holiday" with a rowdy, enthusiastic, go-Vikings! fanbase, when even genuine football stars and what's-a-punt? clueless fans convene before the big-screen. Here's a special collection of football-friendly recipes. Party on!

My favorite Avocado Dip.

Did you know that Superbowl fans consume 80 percent of a year's avocado appetite? So let's kick off this party with something almost-but-not-quite guacamole, my very favorite Avocado Dip, a real hit at parties.

Thank you for taking a moment to write! I read each and every comment, for each and every recipe. If you have a specific question, it's nearly always answered quick-quick. But I also love hearing your reactions, your curiosity, even your concerns! When you've made a recipe, I especially love to know how it turned out, what variations you made, what you'll do differently the next time. ~ Alanna
