Winning menus for the big game include wings, pinwheels


Bring to a low boil over medium heat. (Recipe good for 3 pounds of wings)

Mexican Pinwheels

I am embarrassed to be presenting this recipe, but all I know is that they always disappear at parties. Therefore, I owe it to my readers to present the facts. I love these things, and they are so simple.

Basically, combine the peppers, Cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream and olives (everything listed other than the tortillas) in a bowl. Mix them well. Simply spread a thin layer of the spread over a whole wheat tortilla. If you want it spicy, sprinkle all over with some hot sauce. Roll the tortilla like a jelly roll and wrap it in cellophane. Allow to chill overnight. Cut into half-inch-thick pieces and serve with salsa. The recipe makes about 12 dozen awesome pieces of delicious goodness.

  • 1 package whole wheat tortillas
  • 1 2.25-ounce can chopped black olives
  • 1 1/2 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 8-ounce cream cheese, room temperature
  • 1 4-ounce can chopped green chillies, drained

Liz’s Awesome Bleu Cheese Dressing

OK, shoot straight with me. Were you actually contemplating buying store-bought bleu cheese “dressing” to serve with those delicious smoked Buffalo wings? Seriously? I’ll pretend I didn’t hear that.

If you don’t like bleu cheese dressing, I challenge you, in fact I beg you to try this. It will make you a believer. It is light and fresh, and the bleu cheese is more of a background flavor. It is nothing like the store-bought stuff. C’mon, would I lie to you?

  • 1 cup of Real Mayonnaise
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup of finely chopped parsley
  • 1/8 cup of crumbled blue cheese
  • 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons of white wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients together and chill overnight.

Liz’s Touchdown Brownies

There has to be something sweet, and this certainly qualifies. It’s kind of like athletes on steroids, but in a good way.

    Cathy Hensley’s never been much of a drinker. It wasn’t something that interested her very much, so it seemed unfathomable that she would ever run a winery. But after her son Eric offered her and her husband, Duke, some wine he made, it changed things.
