The Winning Game Plan for Game Day - 3 Easy & Delicious Dishes!

This post is sponsored by Tyson Foods, Inc, but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

In our house, Game Day is a BIG DEAL. We get pretty into it.

I mean, let's get real, though...  it's only partially because of the game. I'm not even joking when I tell you, we're all about the snack-y goodness in our house and game days just give us the chance to share & enjoy our favorite dishes with our family and friends!

Speaking of which, we had a busy day watching the game, playing around, and snacking with our buddies recently. From playing football with my favorite little gal to quickly throwing together some of our foodie MVPs, the day was perfect.

Interested in our "game plan" and the snacks we served up... here's the low down:

We had delicious little Buffalo Wyng & ranch sliders, tasty Hillshire Farm®  Salami & mozzarella antipasticks, & sweet n' savory bacon-wrapped Lit'l Weenies! Each super simple to make and so amazing your friends will be begging for your recipe... so don't forgot to pin this tasty goodness and tell them to as well!

As far as the recipes go, I've made this easy... below you'll find a photo for each recipe, with the ingredients listed - just below each photo I've included simple step by step directions to make each dish!

To make these delicious Tyson Boneless Buffalo Wing & Ranch Sliders, you'll simply follow the directions on the Any'tizers packaging, drizzle a little bit of ranch across the bottom of a slider bun, place 2 pieces of the cooked chicken wyngz and top with some Mozzarella, place the top of the bun... and enjoy!
This simple treat is the perfect mixture of savory and sweet! You can whip this up quickly and let these yummy treats bake while you work on something else for a second. All you need to do is preheat the oven to 400 degrees, cut your bacon into thirds, and wrap the bacon around weenies. Secure with a tooth pick and drizzles Brown Sugar across it all, to add the perfect sweet little touch.

Another recipe that is bound to be your MVP is this Antipastick deliciousness. To make these sticks of goodness, you'll simply chop your grapeseed tomatoes in half and place a toothpick in them. Next you'll top with folded pieces of Hillshire Farms Hard Salami, a tiny chunk of avocado, and a little mozzarella ball.

Now it's time to enjoy!

Are you planning your own game day extravaganza? Don't fret, you can get all the goodies for these recipes at Walmart!

Gourmet Four Cheese Chicken Pasta

While we're all kind of battling a cold in my house, life has actually been pretty good lately. We're embracing the chance to slow down and really savor life. As we all know, being sick is never fun, but it has meant for some good quality family time... and I'm not gonna lie, we've spent the last handful of nights snuggled up on the couch, with a good movie and definitely enjoyed it.

Luckily, we're all finally feeling a bit better today, so we decided to reward ourselves and our taste buds with a flavorful dish... because what's better than a delicious meal once you finally have kicked a cold? Ummm, let me tell ya... pretty much nothin', especially when it's a plate of delicious cheesy pasta made with Stella Cheeses.

That's right, today in celebration of my family and I finally feeling better, I'm dishing up the recipe for the most delicious Four Cheese Pasta... possibly ever! Are you ready?

For this recipe you will need:

2 slices of bacon
1 lbs of chicken breast, sliced into four pieces
3/4 cup Stella Fontinella Cheese
1/4 cup Stella Italian Cheese Blend
Handful of Stella Shaved Parmesan
1 cup heavy whipping cream
2 tbsp unsalted butter
Seasonings: Italian Seasoning, Garlic Powder, Salt & Pepper, Thyme, Rosemary, Onion Powder, Parsley, Paprika, and Red Pepper Flakes
1 box of thin pasta, cooked as directed

First we're going to start on the saucy deliciousness that makes this dish pop -

In a large sauce pan, melt butter on medium-high heat. Add in 1 cup of cream and bring to a boil then reduce to a simmer.

Add in 1/2 tbsp of garlic, 1 tbsp italian seasoning, 1/2 tsp red pepper to taste. Stir in Stella Fontinella Cheese and Stella Italian Cheese Blend slowly allowing them to melt, then remove from heat.

Now, for the chicken -

Take the four chicken breast pieces and season - Sprinkling the first side with onion powder, salt, pepper, paprika, and rosemary, then sprinkling the other side with garlic powder, salt, pepper, thyme, and paprika.

Lightly coat a pan with butter and add chicken over medium heat, flipping every five minutes until cooked through - then set heat to low, just to keep warm.

Next, you'll microwave bacon (as per package instructions), crumbling and using about one piece on each plate your preparing.

The final step, plating -

Add your pasta in a bowl, topping with sauce, adding in the chicken, then garnish with Stella Shaved Parmesan cheese... and Bon Appetit!

“Make” more time and a delicious Quinoa Stuffed Peppers recipe! Get the details on this @SuccessRice recipe that will leave you saying “quinWOW” now!

It's unreal how quickly time is going by! My little baby is now almost one-year-old and each day I'm just hoping to keep up with her rapid growth and sassy attitude. One day she is learning a new word, the next she's toddling around the room and giggling at me as she soars by with her walker. Honestly, she's really learning something new each second and it's amazing and bittersweet to watch. This little girl is one smart cookie and she keeps me on my toes, constantly.

Being a mom is my greatest blessing, but it's also SUPER time consuming, ya know like a 24/7 "job" type of deal... as I'm sure my fellow mama friends recognize! I'm not complaining about her taking up a lot of my time either, I just wish I had more of it to spend with her. With that said, I'm trying to find ways to make more time for family and today I want to share three of those tips.

1. Spend less time on electronics - Sometimes this is easier said than done, but log out of your messenger and take a deep breath without posting on social media for a little. It's nice to step away from your phone, computer, tablet, tv, etc... and just connect with one another. From playing in our little reading corner to having a blast trying to run around outside, being present with Delainey has been a real priority for me lately and I think we both enjoy the "extra" time it feels like it gives us.

2. Stick to a schedule - While paying attention to time seems to be a nuisance to those of us that need more of it, I've noticed sticking to a schedule really does seem to help keep me in the moment. Knowing when activities are happening doesn't just make you less anxious about what events are coming, it's good to stick to a schedule for a child's sake too. Getting overly tired, having a late lunch, or not getting in enough play time can make even the sweetest peach a little sour. So make a daily schedule, including strict eating, nap and bed times and stick to it!

3. My last tip, but certainly not the least important: Cook at home with Success®Tri-Color 100% Quinoa! - I'm not just talking about making great recipes, I'm referring to the 100% whole grain, gluten free, Tri-color Quinoa blend from Success! With a light fluffy texture and a slightly nutty flavor, Success Quinoa is the perfect, wholesome addition to some of your favorite recipes. What makes Success time saving?

Stuffed Black Bean Quinoa Peppers

For this recipe you will need:

3 bell peppers

3 cups of water

3 cups of vegetable broth

2 tbsp olive oil

1 cup red onion

1 15oz can of black beans (drained and rinsed)

1 heaping tbsp tomato paste

1/2 tbsp cumin

1/2 tbsp garlic powder

1/2 tbsp chili powder

Black pepper and salt to taste

Vegan Cheese (optional, but delicious)

Avocado sauce:
1 avocado
3 tbsp cilantro

1 1/2 fresh squeezed lime

1 scallion, chopped

2 garlic cloves, minced

1/3 cup olive oil

1/3 cup water

salt to taste

Rub 3 bell peppers lightly with olive oil, roast that colorful rainbow of tasty on the top rack of the oven, stem up, at about 450 degrees for around 8 minutes. Turn peppers on side after 2-3 minutes and onto other side after another 2 minutes. Pull these out, set them aside to cool, and turn your oven down to 350 degrees.

In a medium sauce pan, add 3 cups of water and 3 cups of vegetable broth, then submerge 2 bags of Success and bring to a nice boil.

Once boiling, let cook for the recommended 10 minutes.

While your delicious quinoa is cooking, add 2 tbsp olive oil to a medium sized pan and saute 1 cup of red onion until translucent.

Turn heat to low and add the black bean, tomato paste, cumin, garlic, and chili powder, as well as black pepper and salt to taste! Stir occasionally until quinoa is finished cooking in broth.

Next up, you'll need to start the avocado dressing. You'll begin by adding one avocado, cut into cubes, into a food processor, then add in cilantro, lime, scallions, garlic cloves, olive oil, water, and salt! Blend all together until smooth then refrigerate this tasty saucy goodness until later.

Now, remove quinoa from broth with a fork! Cut the bag open and empty the quinoa into the pan with the seasoned black beans. Simmer with a lid on for 5 minutes to fuse flavors.

Cut the stems off the peppers and clean out the seeds, now cut each pepper in half vertically.

Lay pepper halves on their sides and stuff each with the tasty Success quinoa blend!

Add vegan cheese and cook in oven on middle rack at 350 degrees for 7 minutes, or until melted.

Drizzle avocado dressing on top and ENJOY because... Success is in the bag!®

This recipe is so easy to make and so incredibly delicious, it's one I keep coming back to over and over again. The best part is, I love using Success quinoa inside of salads, mixed with our veggies, or sometimes just by itself with cilantro and lime! What's your favorite way to snack on Success? How do you try to "make time" in your life? I'd love to hear it in the comments!
