**END OF UPDATE**
Did you know that an estimated 14,500 TONS of chips and 4,000 TONS of popcorn are eaten on Super Bowl Sunday each year?!
Guess I might not be the only person in America who is more interested in the snack table than the football game....
With the big game in just a little over two weeks, it's time to begin our annual Super Bowl Recipe Contest! Here's the drill:
The first five people to submit a recipe will win a free old fashioned popcorn maker, and everyone else will snag a $25 RC Willey gift card!
Best of all, you can view some of the recipes I receive on this page
so that everyone can get some fun, new appetizer ideas this year. Thanks in advance for sharing!
Here's a favorite recipe of mine. Just don't make it while you're home alone because you won't be able to stop yourself....
