  1. Hi Kelly,
    I was looking at the recipe for the Parmesan Cheese Chicken tenders. In the recipe it says 1/2 cup Parmesan and under that it says a 1/4 cup of Parmesan. I am wondering if it’s suppose to be 3/4 cup. I would love to make these.
    Thank you.

    1. Hi Charlotte! The 1/2 cup is grated Parmesan cheese while the 1/4 cup is shredded Parmesan cheese. You want both grated and shredded for the best coating on the tenders. :)

  2. Can’t wait to make the Baked Cheddar Dijon Chick Tenders for the hubs this weekend! He loves Cheez-Its, so I expect they’ll be devoured quickly during the games this weekend! He’ll dip those in our Gates BBQ sauce from Kansas City & I’ll be the queen of the day! Thank for making it so easy, Kelly!!
    Take care,

  5. Hi!
    I love LOVE your recipes! Thank you SO much for all the tips, pointers, and advice!
    Regarding the leftover mashed potato recipes (pardon me if I may have overlooked or not notice before), I wonder if the mashed potatoes are merely mashed potatoes per se, or if they were made with other ingredients.
    If I wanted to make the leftover mashed potato recipes but didn’t have any leftover mashed potatoes and wanted to make them from scratch, then would I simply have to mash potatoes or do I have actually make the mashed potatoes first?
    Thanks in advance!

    1. Hi Darby – I don’t have a list of the recipes, but rather shared the slideshow as an easy way to browse by image.

  6. Love the ideas… I pinned a few… and copied some down for my next get together… Love the pomegranate guacamole idea and the chorizo in the potato skins

  7. Wow – this is some roundup.The best part about football season in my opinion is the snacks. So I’m down with all these foods!
