The big game is nearly here. Folks all around the country throw parties to celebrate and watch the two teams compete for the title. I love the game because it's a wonderful excuse to do things I love - getting together with friends, sharing a few chuckles over clever commercials, and cooking up lots of delicious snacks. Since there are so many delicious recipes out there for game day entertaining, I thought I'd put together a collection of some of my favorites.
