In the college ranks here is the latest AP division I poll:


The only change in the top 5 this week is Penn State knocking Michigan to #6 and taking the #5 spot.

Here are our picks for NFL week 15:

From Home Made Interest.com we found these Parmesan Chicken Sliders!

Kat and Melinda say:

These Chicken Parmesan Sliders are an easy recipe made with fried chicken tenders, tomato sauce, and lots of cheese!

Any time is good for Bacon, right? Check out these Candied Smoked Chipotle Bacon skewers from The Tasty Bite Blog.com

Karen says:

Crispy sweet and savory thick cut bacon in skewers make for an indulgent treat.  Great for topping pancakes and french toasts too!

Here’s something you don’t see every day: Piña Colada Cookie Cups from Life Love and Sugar.com.

Lindsay says:

These Pina Colada Cookie Cups are a coconut cookie filled with pineapple cheesecake. They are topped with a bit of whipped cream, pineapple and a cherry and turn one of my favorite summer drinks into a delicious dessert!

Looking for something with a little more zing to it? Try these Jalapeño Popper Potato Skins from An Edible Mosaic.com.

Faith says:

For the holiday season, I don’t know about you, but in addition to scouting around for new cookie recipes, I’m always looking for new appetizer ideas as well. I like to switch things up for holiday parties and this combo (jalapeno poppers + potato skins) is a fun one to do just that. (And be sure to keep this recipe in mind for game-day parties too!)

From the First Year Blog was found this awesome Football Puppy Chow.

Beth says:

We took everyone’s beloved party snack (puppy chow!) and football-ified it. I am also pretty confident that almost anything can be football-ified (this word should be added to the dictionary, btw!)

Here’s another great idea for your sweet tooth. Football Cupcakes from Your Cup of Cakes.com.

Lizzy says:

These Football Cupcakes were so easy to make, I just had to make a video to show you how simple! The cake mix, which can be swapped out for the Pillsbury Purely Simple Chocolate Cake Mix, makes this recipe even easier! Plus, I made both colored frostings at the same time by being a little sneaky :)  You’ll have to read the recipe for that trick!

It starting to look like winter but it’s still officially fall. Here’s one more pumpkin recipe:

Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip from Mom on Time Out.com.

Mom says:

This easy to make, over the top Caramel Pumpkin Cheesecake Dip will have everyone coming back for seconds! The perfect dessert or appetizer for fall!

From Can’t Stay out of the Kitchen we have one more dessert: Cake Batter Blondies.

Teresa says:

Cake Batter Blondies are a wonderfully, decadent, amazing little brownie. This one is so simple, and it uses only a few ingredients. It uses white chocolate chips to make it rich, and the cake or cookie decorating sequins (rainbow sprinkles)  in the batter to give it bursts of color. It is a dense, gooey bar that is spectacular in appearance as well as taste. If you’re looking for easy, economical, quick, delicious, and a brownie (blondie) without nuts, this is it!

That’s all for this week. Be safe out there and may your favorite team win.
