Print This Post Print This Post

We’d like to offer our thanks to Elana Amsterdam, of the famed Elana’s Pantry, for sharing her favorite Super Bowl recipes with us for our Monthly Morsel!  After Elana and her husband moved their family to Colorado, she realized she was going to be a restless stay at home mom. Even though she remained involved in her New York consulting business, she was really looking for a new venture relevant to her life as a mother.  Hence, the birth of Elana’s Pantry.  Read more about Elana’s Pantry here.

Easy appetizer recipes are always great for the Big Game, but you can really eat them any time.  Check out Elana’s take on Almond Butter Blondies (for dessert) and Squash Fries (for a salty snack).  They’re gluten free!
