Always stir flour in the canister before measuring. (I use a whisk). As flour sits in the canister or package, it settles. If you just scoop out your measured amount, you might get more than you think, which might affect your recipes
So often a recipe will call for a garlic clove, chopped. For many years now, I’ve kept a small jar of Spice World minced garlic in my fridge. ½ tsp is equal to approximately 1 clove of garlic. It’s in liquid so it keeps “forever”! There is a “use by” date on the bottom (mine says Nov. 14, 2015), but if you do very much cooking especially soups, stews, pork, beef, ribs, etc. it always calls for at least 1 clove of garlic. Store the opened jar in the fridge.
Ingles has a 2 lb. pkg. of fully cooked frozen meatballs in their frozen section. Keep a bag in your freezer, to add to spaghetti sauce, appetizer crockpot sauce, etc.o





The first Super Bowl was established in 1967 and called “Super Sunday” (later changed to “Super Bowl” with the 5th game in Jan. 1970).  Held in Los Angeles the game was between the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs. The Packers won


Super Bowl & Food!!! Super Bowl is the 2nd largest food consumption day in the United States, just after Thanksgiving!  It’s usually buffet-style…wings, chili, pizza, chips, dips, etc.

Since the Super Bowl is on Feb. 1st, we're featuring some Super Bowl family favorites, “Em’s Favorite Wings” and a simple but popular favorite, “Pigs In A Blanket”.  Also, for a nice addition to your “nibble” selection, try our “Krispy Cheese Bites”. Whether your party is for 2 or 200, we hope these, along with the former ones listed in our Recipe Archives (ref. below) will help in planning your party.  

Bon Appetite!

Em’s Favorite Wings


5 lbs. chicken wings

½ cup butter, melted

¼ cup Texas Pete Hot Sauce (Tabasco, if you like hotter)

2 Tbsp. white vinegar

Oil for frying

Celery Hearts, cut in 3-inch sticks

Blue Cheese Dip


Fry chicken wings in hot oil for 8 minutes, drain on paper towels. Stir the melted butter, hot sauce and vinegar together and pour over chicken wings, tossing gently to coat.

Serve with celery heart sticks and blue cheese dip.  Serves 8 to 12

Blue Cheese Dip

Make a day or two before using. It needs to sit 24 hrs. or overnight in fridge for flavors to blend. Combine: 16-oz. container sour cream and 1½ cups mayonnaise. Crumble 2, 4-oz. containers of crumbled blue cheese. Optional: add a little Texas Pete and garlic salt to taste.  If you have some left over, add a little milk and you have a great blue cheese salad dressing!

Pigs In A Blanket


2 (8-oz.) cans Pillsbury refrigerated crescent dinner rolls

48 cocktail-size Hillshire Farm “Lit’l Smokie” sausages

Choice of mustard or favorite bar-b-q sauce for dipping


Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Unroll both cans of the dough and separate into 16 triangles. Cut the triangles lengthwise into 3 narrow triangles from the widest end up to the point. Place a sausage on the widest side of the triangle and roll up to the opposite point. Place, point side down, on 2 ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 12 to 15 minutes (I find 12 is sufficient) until golden brown, switching position of cookie sheets halfway through baking. Immediately remove from cookie sheets and serve warm. Have little bowls of mustard or bar-b-q sauce ready for dipping.  Makes 48 servings

Note: You could just do one roll at a time, preparing the 2nd roll while the first is baking.

We only needed 24, so I just did one can of crescent rolls.

Krispy Cheese Bites

An old recipe but still a popular one. Men love these!




1 stick butter, softened

1 cup all-purpose flour

½ tsp. salt

½ tsp. Texas Pete Hot Sauce

    (or Tabasco for hotter)

1 cup grated sharp Cheddar cheese

1 cup Rice Krispy cereal






Combine the softened butter, flour, salt, hot sauce and cheese, mixing well with hands. Add the cereal. Put the mixture on a sheet of waxed paper. Squeeze and knead and dough with both hands just like you would bread dough. (do not attempt to use an electric mixer, the dough is too stiff)  Knead until it forms a  nice smooth dough. Pinch off small bite-size pieces and place on an ungreased cookie sheet. With a fork press each one and either sprinkle a little paprika or place a pecan half on top, pressing down slightly to adhere to dough.  Or do some of both!  Bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 25 to 30 minutes.  Makes 25, depending on size.
