Billed as “an event of epic proportions,” Super Bowl XLVII is coming to a television set near you on Sunday, February 3! The spectacle will have (almost) all the guts and glory of ancient Rome, except for a bigger Colosseum, a bigger audience, and a much bigger chance of staying alive as the Baltimore Ravens gear up to bash the San Francisco 49ers and vice-versa. Unlike ancient Rome, there will be no (Detroit) Lions, no (Cleveland) Tigers, and definitely no (Mumbai) Gladiators (see Note).
In honor of the Super Bowl, the recipes I’ve blogged below - a Lady Baltimore Cake and San Francisco Fudge Foggies - are both winners! Tomorrow, I’ll have three make-ahead savory dips and a great nacho snack for the huddle at half-time. I’ll also have two make-ahead main courses to serve a crowd without breaking the bank.Are you and your apron ready?On Super Bowl Sunday, I’m taking the day off to watch the big game!
