Super Bowl Sunday

Super Bowl Sunday, is there any other event where the hype is what it is for the Super Bowl? I had the endless hours of pregame coverage on, if nothing else as background noise while I was baking and doing laundry.

What's up with The Who as the halftime entertainment? Can you imagine how many people are watching saying "Who are The Who anyway?". The lightshow was awesome, the vocals...well what can I say?

Of course, there's the commercials. Amazing how many people watch for the commercials. What were your favorite commercials? I thought there were a lot of funny ones, no one in particular stood out.

A few that I liked were the Dog Collar Doritos, Mom's Date Doritos, Casual Friday Careeer Builder, Plane Crash Bud Light and Sock Monkey Kia.

Our Super Bowl snack....

Hooter's Buffalo Chicken Wings
Recipe from Top Secret Restaurant Recipes

1/4 c butter
1/4 c Frank's Red Hot Cayenne Sauce
1/2 c flour
1/4 t paprika
1/4 t cayenne pepper
1/4 t salt
10 chicken wing pieces

On the side

Blue cheese dressing
Celery Stick

Combine flour, paprika, cayenne pepper and salt in a small bowl. Put the wings into a large bowl and sprinkle the flour mixture over them, coating wings evenly. Put the wings in the refrigerator for 60 - 90 minutes. This will help the breading to stick to the wings when fried.

Heat oil in a deep fryer to 375 degrees. Combine the butter, hot sauce and garlic powder in a small saucepan over low heat. Heat until the butter is melted and all ingredients are well blended. Put the wings in the hot oil and fry for 8 - 10 minutes. Remove the wings from the oil to a paper towel to drain. Quickly put the wings into a large bowl. Add the hot sauce and stir, coating all wings evenly.

Serve with blue cheese and celery sticks on the side.


  1. I had all that pre-game stuff playing in the background as I baked cookies for my soldier today. I love chicken wings...will have to try those! Not sure who you were routing for, but I was hoping the Saints would win (underdogs and all) and I see it just happened. Who Dat!

  2. I am so tempted to make these! I love crispy fried things but my thighs, not so much.

  3. What is Super Bowl without wings? I think one of my favorite commercials was the Casual Fridays-I busted a new one. That was a creative spin on casual wear in the work place. ;-)

    P.S. I saw your comment about learning more about cooking clubs. Just drop me an email at (you do not have an email contact on your blog) and I will send you an email.

  4. Hi Lakegirl! I'm your mentor for adopt-a-blogger over at Dine and Dish, so I just wanted to say hello!

    Those buffalo wings look yummy. That's one thing I miss from the states. I may just have to make my own :-)

  5. These look great, nice and saucy!
