    I'd like to try the spinach brownies although I think calling them brownies is really deceptive; how can it be a brownie without any chocolate in it, and whoever heard of cheese in brownies!?!?! Still, it sounds like a tasty appetizer. Also like the chicken nachos although I wouldn't use blue-corn tortilla chips. - 2/2/2013   3:55:34 PM

    They all sound good. - 9/9/2010   12:39:24 AM
    Some of these I have had before and they are great. I surely will be trying the rest of them. - 9/8/2010   8:37:21 PM

    I don't follow the games, but I think I'll try all of them except the jalapeno poppers (I like spicy but not just hot). - 9/8/2010   7:06:27 PM

    I've gotta try the hot 'wings' made from boneless, skinless chicken breasts. My kids love the Tyson hot tenders, but they are high in fat and sodium. - 9/8/2010   12:09:06 PM

    Such good ones, definitely adding a cookbook for game days. :) Spinach Brownies, Guacamole, 15 min. bean and corn salsa dip, spinach and artichoke dip, and sweet potato fries are good contenders for the big day. :) - 9/8/2010   11:37:03 AM
    They all sound pretty good! - 9/8/2010   10:00:26 AM

    Living in Buffalo the chicken wing capital of the world (just had our annual festival this past weekend) I'm looking to try the boneless ones myself. I know that the bone in adds flavor but its not where all the flavor & protein is. I'll try the others as well. - 9/8/2010   7:40:54 AM

    The recipes are almost worth buying a TV to watch games for. But that would defeat the choice I made to get rid of my TV to help with my weight loss. Tricky tricky. - 9/8/2010   3:50:17 AM
    Great ideas!!! - 9/8/2010   1:07:31 AM

    I may try the black bean hummus. I make hummus with chickpeas so I could try black bean. And I love basil. The black bean and corn salsa is kind of like a "salad" I made from a recipe I got at Weight Watcher's. It's Good! - 9/7/2010   4:09:45 PM

    DINAISPO, I agree. More like spinach squares, maybe? Either way they look yummy! I'm going to be saving this blog in my favorites for when I'm craving this stuff year round. Thank you! - 9/7/2010   4:02:13 PM

    I am unsure why the spinach brownies are called brownie. Read the recipe & they are definitely not brownies!! - 9/7/2010   1:34:55 PM
    They all sound pretty good! - 9/7/2010   12:33:31 PM

    The boneless chicken wings and chicken nachos...two of my favorite things to eat while watching a game... - 9/7/2010   12:20:54 PM

    I can't wait to try the Spinach Brownies. But I won't be telling anyone that they have Spinach in them until AFTER they eat them!! - 9/7/2010   12:15:00 PM
