# a super (bowl) sunday

Right now I’m flying across the country back to my loves with a full heart and a full stomach. What. a. trip! (And I can’t wait to tell you all about it.)

But, since it’s Super Bowl Sunday and I’m missing our tradition of making special treats (a re-do is in order!), I wanted to at least provide you with an exciting Super Bowl food update.

A favorite food blogger of mine, Annie’s Eats, features her readers every once in a while when they make her recipes. She was actually the inspiration for my own Reader Repeat series. I’m happy to report that I was featured this week in her “Reader Love” post with my pretzel bites from last year’s Super Bowl! Oh, the timing!

Click here to see it in action, or just enjoy this screenshot:


I was so pumped when I got the notification and even more excited when I saw I got my own stand-alone photo. (She features a lot of photos, but most are in collages.) I just wanted to share the excitement and my appreciation for the blog lovin’ from Annie, who inspires me weekly with her delicious food and gorgeous food photos/styling. Be sure to check out her blog.

Hope you are all enjoying lots of tastiness today! Cheers to the end of football!


Reader Repeat: The First

I love talking about food. In fact, it’s probably safe to say the only thing I like more than talking about it is actually eating it, but talking food with those that love it as much as I do makes me incredibly happy.

I really love sharing recipes with others (via blog or otherwise) and frequently am on the search for recipes I know my family and friends will love…like pinning baked Strawberry Doughnuts for Bobbie or emailing my mom a Roasted Garlic Potato Soup.

Yesterday as I was prepping my own Roasted Garlic Potato Soup, my mom texted me a pic of HER making the same soup. We shared pics of ‘roasted garlic on Williams Sonoma towels’. And it made me happy.

Even from afar, food brings us together.

I obviously love to share food with you guys, my faithful readers, and have high hopes to make this more of a friendlier food(ish) blog. I’d love to get my recipes on Pinterest (formally), add a Recipe Index tab for quick searches, and add a print/save function to my recipes. I’m working on it!

Some of you have tried my #Marci recipes and have shared your successes with me. Nothing makes me happier, so I wanted to start a special recurring series of posts that showcase all of YOUR versions of the recipes I’ve posted.

I’ll call them Reader Repeat posts.

If you’d like to be included in the next Reader Repeat, email your photos to hashtagmarci (at) gmail (dot) com.

Let’s dig in and see what you’ve made!

First up, Lily and Booh made the incredibly easy, incredibly delicious Cookie Dough Pretzel Bites for a family night. I want to sit on the couch with her and eat that entire tray.


My mom and Roberta both raved about the Pumpkin Scones I made for my Dad, Bryan and Robbi. At the time Robbi claimed them the best scone she’d ever had and Roberta said her batch was “melt-in-your-mouth delicious and delicate.” It even won over her pumpkin-averting hubby.

Bobbie recently whipped up a batch of my “Judy Doughnuts” to enjoy with her daughter. Smiles all around…especially for Abby, who only wanted the frosted tops! Yum, what a perfect weekend morning!


Roberta and her daughter Meredith won me over completely by making the yummy Tagalong Cookie Cake Bars for Roberta’s dog’s birthday. Yep, a family after my own dog-lovin’ heart! Of course only the adults enjoyed, but Reese looked pretty happy sitting next to it.


Thank you for sharing your photos with me! I so enjoy hearing about what sounds (and tastes) good to you! I’ll plan on doing another Reader Repeat in the late Spring or early Summer, so send in your photos and stories!

Happy eating!!
