I wanted to make my seasoned potatoes (you can find my recipe here) so I asked her to cut the potatoes for me. At 9, she was a little nervous using a sharp knife, so Bob found an interesting solution. He cut the potatoes into disks, and then Brandi used my pizza cutter to cut the potatoes into bite sized pieces. It was an inspired solution that allowed her to help without endangering her fingers.

There are several different flavors of the Creme, and I used the Italian Cheese & Herb one. I am looking forward to trying the garlic variety, too. I actually have some chicken left over from last night...I might see if I can come up with something garlicy tonight.

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Kenmore Live Studio. All opinions are 100% mine.
This weekend, most Americans will be glued to their televisions watching the Super Bowl. There will be parties with lots of food, and probably a lot of beer, too. We don't watch football in our house, so we will probably just hang out together. It's my birthday this weekend, so we will most likely celebrate that.
For those of you who do host Super Bowl parties, I found some Super Bowl Recipes online that look pretty good. I love that the recipes are demonstrated, so it's easy to follow along. Check out this recipe for bacon cheddar popcorn.
I have to say, I would eat this any day of the week. It would be a perfect addition to our family game nights.
This next video demonstrates shrimp skewers, and even though I don't like seafood, this is a simple recipe that I would make for company. Heck, I would probably make it just for the family, too. Check it out.
If you are throwing a Super Bowl Party this weekend, check out all the superbowlfood recipes. The cook in the videos is fun to watch, and he is easy to follow. You may find something new to add to your party spread.
