With the Super Bowl just around the corner, I thought it would be a fun idea to bring together some party fare favorites. All of the recipes below are fan tested and easy to pull off. Most can be prepped well in advance, so you can focus on the game–or the commercials and half-time show! To coincide with some special happenings, I went with a cheese-centered theme.
