We all know where we will be on Sunday, February 7 – watching the Super Bowl. Whether you are at home or attending a fun Super Bowl party, I have two delicious recipes you can make to enjoy your day.
Who are you rooting for? The Denver Broncos or the Carolina Panthers? Either way, you need some cute orange or light blue casual outfits to cheer on your favorite team. I have linked you to some great choices at the bottom of this post. You don’t care what you wear to watch the game? That’s ok, the clothes are still super chic and worth a look and a click. Trust me. Plus you need to look cute when you watch all the commercials. That’s the best part, right?
Today’s recipes come from my favorite morning show – Live with Kelly and Michael. I am dating myself but I have been watching this show consistently since it was Live with Regis and Kathie Lee. I watched Kelly and Michael make these recipes and they look scrumptious. They are perfect to take to a party or enjoy at home but be careful – they are loaded with calories. This is the one day that I will indulge and get off my Ideal Protein track (yes, I still follow it). If you want to stay healthy, consider making the low carb turkey chili recipe I gave you. Also, if you make them let me know what you think.
What is your favorite part of the Super Bowl? xoxo- Tanya

Michael Strahan’s grilled sweet potato fries
5-6 sweet potatoes
1/4 teaspoon red chili flakes
5 tablespoons olive oil
6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh thyme, finely chopped
2 tablespoons fresh flat leaf parsley, finely chopped
Add potatoes to a large pot of cold water, add 2 tablespoons of salt and cook until potatoes are tender, but still firm, about 15 minutes. Drain and let cool slightly.
Slice each potato in half lengthwise then again slice each half into 3 or 4 wedges, depending on the size and thickness you like.
Place slices in a large ziplock bag and add 3 tablespoons of olive oil. Season with salt, pepper and brown sugar and toss in bag to make sure they are evenly coated.
Pack bag of potatoes and remaining ingredients to head to the stadium…
At tailgate (or at home):
Heat the grill to high.
Heat 2 tablespoons of the oil in a small saute pan on the grates of the grill. Add the garlic, thyme and chili flakes and cook until the garlic is just soft and NOT brown. 30-45 seconds. Remove from the heat.
Grill potatoes until lightly golden brown and just cooked through, about 5-6 minutes. Remove to a platter and immediately toss or drizzle with the garlic mixture. Sprinkle with chopped parsley.
