CWK: Superbowl Sunday!!

Good morning!! My kids were up early, but I didn't get up till 7am! Thanks David!! Its been about 4 hours, and I feel so good about today. I have cooked for the superbowl, fed emma and gave her a bath, and had breakfast and 2 cups of coffee (moms you know how successful that is!)!!!!!!

Miss Emma is getting more adventurous each day. Tyler is not liking Emma getting into his toys!! Here's some photos from this morning:

While all that was happening, I was cooking for the superbowl! Listen i am not a football fan, today will be about 95% of my football viewing for the year, maybe 99.9%! I am a hockey fan, its what it know! By the way the crunch kicked ass last night, i wish I was at sold out game!! I watch the very bad Buffalo game. Really bad - google: Bad goal Buffalo Sabers vs Columbus Blue Jackets.

What i know about football is food!! so i cooked! I felt the need to cook with 5 ingredients or less!! so here you go, let me know how i did!

Kristen's Party Chicken:
Chicken Tenderloins - 4lb bag
Chicken wing sauce - 1 Jar Nancy Wing sauce
Any seasoning you like (i like bearman tummy rub) about 1-2 TBSP

In a bowl mix all the ingredents so that all the chicken is well coated. Let everything blend together in the fridge for 2 hours (but i like over night!)

Place the chicken on a cooking sheet (I love my pampered chef stones for this!) and bake for about 30-45 minutes at 375. They are so good!

Raspberry Clouds

2 cups of Raspberrys - unfrozen and cut up.
2 contains of puff shells
1/4 cup of pineapple juice (or orange juice)
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 contain for Cool whip

in a Medium pan, mix raspberrys, pineapple juice and sugar. I also like to add rum but that would put me over my 5 ingredients! I cooked everything over a low heat pressing the juice out of the berries. it took about 5 minutes.

I poured everything onto my fine metal strainer to allow only the liquid thru and not the seeds. I let the juice (which is slightly thick) cool; Then fold it into some cool whip.
I scooped it into the shells. Now you could grate chocolate over the top, but that too would put you past the 5 items! This is hard for me !!

So what superbowl party is complete without chips?

Homemade Tortilla Chips:

I only used these ingredents (plus 1 Tablespoons of sugar and a splash of water) to make 2 different kinds!

Cut the tortillas into about 12 pieces. Spread them out onto a baking sheet (single layer works best). I lightly rub water onto them with either a brush or damp paper towel.

Then sprinkle with a seasoning you like! I made one batch with the BearMan tummy rub and one batch with cinnamon and sugar! The cinnamon and sugar remind me of fried dough if i only added some powder sugar!

Then i bake them in a 350 over for about 7 minutes. if they are starting to get crunchy i flip them and them bake for another 3-5 minutes. Your cooking time may need to be altered on how crisp you want your chips.

The bear-man ones are great with old goat salsa. The cinnamon are great with a sweet dip!

I hope everyone enjoys the food and the game!! Go Crunch - oops wrong sport! Go Colts!
