We had such a fun Superbowl party!! Our SS class came over and we had a great time. One of the sweet girls in our class named Erin made these peanut butter brownies and these Oatmeal Butterscotch cookies. The recipe for the cookies are below. I will try and get the brownie recipe. Hope you all had a great time celebrating. I was shocked at the Saints and very happy that they pulled off the victory!!! I forgot to take pictures of the kids but did get some good ones of the food. HA!
We even broke out the popcorn machine for the party!!! So fun!!!!

I made this YUMMY and healthy chili and it turned out delicious! Hope you like!

  • 1 tablespoon (1 turn around the pan in a slow stream) extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large bell pepper, red or green, chopped (use up leftover pepper strips from crudite tray if you have them)
  • 1 jalapeno pepper, seeded and chopped
  • 1 bay leaf, fresh or dried
  • 1 1/2 pounds light and dark meat cooked turkey meat, diced
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons (a palm full) chili powder
  • 1 1/2 to 2 tablespoons (a palm full) ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon to 2 teaspoons (several drops) cayenne pepper sauce
  • Coarse salt
  • 2 cups frozen corn kernels or leftover prepared corn
  • 1 (32-ounce) can chunky style crushed tomatoes
  • 2 cups prepared chicken stock or broth, paper container or canned
  • 2 scallions, white and greens, chopped


Heat a deep pot over medium high heat. Work close to the stove for your chopping. Add oil to your pot, 1 turn of the pan, and add vegetables as you chop them.

Add bay leaf and cook vegetables 5 minutes, stirring frequently, reducing heat if veggies start to stick. Stir in diced turkey meat and season with chili powder, cumin, and cayenne sauce. Season with a little salt, to taste. Add corn, tomatoes, and broth. Combine your chili well, adjust seasonings, reduce heat to medium low, and simmer for 7 to 10 minutes. Garnish chili with chopped scallions.

Oatmeal Butterscotch Cookies:

  • 3/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup white sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs

  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 2/3 cups butterscotch chips


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  2. In a large bowl beat the butter or margarine, white sugar and brown sugar together. Add the eggs and vanilla, beating well.
  3. Stir together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Gradually add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir until blended. Stir in the oats and the butterscotch chips. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
  4. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, until the edges begin to brown.
