Seahawks Super Bowl Sweets

Happy Blue Friday! Since I have lived in Seattle for 23 years of my 24 years of life, I am beyond excited that the Seahawks are in the Super Bowl! I wish I was there to experience the energy and excitement of the city, but these Seahawks-themed treats will have to do.

Cupcakes and Cashmere is my favorite blog and the pom pom cupcakes that she made in honor of the Super Bowl are so cute! Obviously the green and blue one is the prettiest ;)

superbowl 8These festive 12th Man Mojitos from Posh Little Designs are sure to liven up a Super Bowl party. From the blue and green ingredients to the 12th Man flag and football-shaped kiwi, it just screams “Go Hawks!”

superbowl 10One of the things I miss most about Seattle is Trophy Cupcakes. You just can’t beat a triple chocolate cupcake. I’m sure these spirited sweets have been quite popular lately! As they say – “The 12th Man needs a Trophy.” Agreed!

GO SEAHAWKS!!!

Homemade Guacamole

Holy guacamole! With football season underway (Go Seahawks and Huskies!), there’s no better gameday snack than chips and dip. I love this simple guacamole recipe because it’s more about the avocado and not a green paste you buy at a store.

Ingredients:

  • 2 avocados
  • Half of a jalapeño,
  • 1 roma tomato
  • 2 Tbsp. onion
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to:

  1. Cut avocados in half, take out pits. Cut and scoop out into small bowl. Mash with fork until desired consistency (chunky or more of a solid mixture)
  2. Scoop out seeds of jalapeño. Dice jalapeño, roma tomato and onion. Mix into bowl with avocado until fully incorporated.
