We’re kind of big fans of Angry Birds around here.  When she was around three, Bubbles was sitting with Daddy while he was playing Angry Birds on his phone.  She reached down and after a few minutes was successfully passing levels like a pro.

How to Host the Ultimate Angry Birds Party for the Whole Family!

Over the last few years I’ve shared a lot of tailgating and Big Game recipes with you all.  I married a football guy and he converted me to a football gal (though I do still like watching the commercials).  With the Big Game just around the corner I thought I’d share a little of what we’re working on this year.

Easy Game Day Appetizers and Party Ideas for the Big Game #PrepareToParty
