amybradley77, I love the Super Bowl commercials. The sponsers are always extra-creative for this time slot. Even if you don't watch to see the game, the commercials are worth the viewing. Thanks for the comment.

amybradley77 on January 22, 2011:

LOL!! I laughed so hard, wow. Plus, these recipes look so good I am now craving super bowl food. I must admit, the video was a high light on this page for me though. I really do look forward to these funny ads every single year, seems to me they just keep getting better. A.B.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 20, 2011:

yenajeon, I hope you and your guests enjoy them. Have a wonderful time and I hope your team wins.

Yena Williams from California on January 19, 2011:

The superbowl recipes look amazing!! I have saved them already and plan to make them for our Super Bowl party! Thanks!

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 17, 2011:

Jamie, the parties are fun. To me they are the best part. My husband is like your Grandma, really into the Dallas Cowboys.

Jamie Brock from Texas on January 17, 2011:

What a great hub!! I'll tell ya, people are really obsessed with the Super Bowl here in Texas! I've tried to watch football with my Grandma but just can't seem to get into it. She is such a Dallas Cowboys nut, LOL! She gets so worked up when she's watching the games.. especially if they are messing up. Those Cowboy coaches don't have anything on her! Anyway, although I just can't get into football, it's still lots of fun to go to the super bowl parties!

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 17, 2011:

Thanks Minnetonka, I hope you team wins and I hope for the first time in history that the game goes into overtime.

dahoglund, no wonder you are such an interesting writer you are so versatile. I found, and I'm sure you did too, that we learn the most when we work at smaller businesses. It seems they gently (or roughly) push you into different areas of work. For you it was the paper and the different areas of advertising, news coverage, and sports. You were able to learn some about each. For me it was craft management, custom framing, training the cashiers, and closing of the drawers and all of the things that went with them. There's something to be said for working for a smaller company - you get to become knowledgable about so many different areas other than what you were hired for. Of course, some of the work you to exhaustion.

Linda Rogers from Minnesota on January 16, 2011:

This was so much fun to read.

I'm getting very excited for Sunday.

I love your recipes and will be book-marking them. Thanks for the creative hub with such variety.

Don A. Hoglund from Wisconsin Rapids on January 16, 2011:

Actually I was hired as an advertising assistant or some such things. But small town weekly papers do not have large staffs. My employer really wanted to shuffle off some of his work to spend more time with the fledgling Winnebago Industries that was starting up in that town.Therefore I sold some advertising, covered a bit of news and was responsible for the sports coverage, mostly high school stuff.

I did learn a trick to writing up games. Get your hands on the score book. With a little information from the coach and analyzing the scores you can pretty well figure out what went on.

I got layed of though because he did not get the increase in business to cover my salary.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 16, 2011:

dahoglund, interesting part of your history. How did you do as editor of the sports page?

Don A. Hoglund from Wisconsin Rapids on January 16, 2011:

I went to the University of Minnesoata back in the early sixties and took my first community paper job editing the sports page. My boss couldn't understnd how I went to a big ten school and didn't know football.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 16, 2011:

Thanks Rhonda. I live in a house with 2 very avid football fans. They follow their teams faithfully and look forward to Super Bowl Sunday all year.

Susan Hazelton (author) from Sunny Florida on January 16, 2011:

carrie, I actually don't watch it either. However, my husband is a huge fan and I make the snacks and leave so he and his friends can enjoy themselves.

Rhonda Musch from The Emerald Coast on January 16, 2011:

A wonderful hub. Yes I love the Super Bowl, and I love football. My oldest son played football, up until college. Then a back injury, caused him to stop playing. I still go to games when I can. I still support our football team. Love the snacks and recipes. Another great hub.

carrie450 from Winnipeg, Canada on January 16, 2011:

What a creative hub KoffeeKlatch Gals and funny too.

I am Canadian and not a football fan at all but I love to watch the commercials for the Super Bowl. I'm still laughing at the video.....hilarious!

The snacks look delicious. I may try and make some of them.

I hope your team wins.
