The Big Game is almost here!  Did your favorite team make it to the match up between the final two?  Or are you just planning to watch for the commercials?

Either way, you’re probably going to want some tailgating food.  I like to serve lots of finger foods, then mix in one or two main entrees.  So I thought I’d share a few of my favorite dessert and appetizer recipes sure to please no matter how big or small your crowd will be.
