Sangria from a much-overdue girl’s night – aren’t those the best?!

Hey everyone! Are you pumped for the Super Bowl this weekend? (Even if not for the football, at least for the food and beer and Katy Perry.) I am obviously making food, although I haven’t figured out exactly what yet. I’m sure it will involve these Blue Moon cupcakes, at least! In the meantime…here are this week’s Foodie Favorites!

How amazing are these bacon shortbread cookies?! These are basically the perfect cookies for me! I wish I was this crafty!

These caramelized onion and gruyere biscuits look like absolute heaven. French onion soup in biscuit form?! Shut the front door!

Can we say…HELLOOOO Super Bowl?!

It’s just a fact that game day food is the best food. It’s the cheesiest, crunchiest, gooiest, spiciest stuff there is. Eating a salad while watching the Super Bowl is pretty much downright anti-American! Pizza, wings, burgers, dips of every shape and size – it’s all fair game. (See what I did there?)

Serious brunch at the Original Pancake House in Chicago. I can never resist a good greasy skillet!

Happy Wednesday, people! How’s your week going? I had a very productive “single lady” weekend while Brad visited his friend Dave in Madison. I caught up with girlfriends, watched way too much Millionaire Matchmaker, and drank tons of wine – I couldn’t have asked for a better girly weekend! Of course, I was more than happy to greet Brad when he got home – a girl can only watch so much trashy TV before she starts to miss watching football a little teeny tiny bit (never tell him I admitted that). On to this week’s Foodie Favorites!

Elvis Banana Bread

Okay, so this is basically the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever made in my entire life.

And I am not sorry about it one little teeny tiny bit.

It’s already two weeks into January, which means we have SUFFICIENTLY repented for the indulgences of December. It’s totally time for some peanut butter banana bread topped with a peanut butter glaze and brown sugar-candied bacon. Right? Work with me, people.
