Tasty treats for Super Bowl!

     Here at Casa Cheeky, we always do a little somethin somethin for the Super Bowl even if it's just the family.  One year we threw a big party where I made Cincinnati chili that was to die for, chicken wings, and all the munchies to go along with it.  That year, sadly, the power in our neighborhood went out right after half time for who knows what reason!  No bad wind, no lightning, no torrential downpour...nothing!  Can you believe that?  People were all "um, yeah, thanks for the chili...got to go now...later gator!"  Big D and I were stuck with hoards of beer, which I'm sure he found something to do with at some point or another, and way too much leftover food.  For the past few years, our usual modus operandi is making a run to Hooters (yes that's right Hooters people, cuz they are supa tasty!...) they do honestly have the best chicken wings don't ya think?  So I get some chicken wings, make various snacks, pop a beer and watch the commercials...I mean the game!!  I really do love football truly, but I love the Super Bowl commercials just as much!

Here are two things you might want to try that would be perfect for your party.  G'head get your fat pants on, because this my friends will stretch the muffin...

So this...

and this...

Cheeky In Blue's Bitchin' Brisket BBQ

For the rub a dub dub...
2 tsp celery salt
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp onion salt
1/2 tsp cracked pepper
2 tsp Worcestershire sauce

For the Bitchin' Brisket...
1 4-5 lb fresh beef brisket
1 cup Russian salad dressing, OR... 1 cup French salad dressing plus 2 T honey
1 cup bottled spicy BBQ sauce...this is key, because it rocks the bitchin' part of the BBQ
1/4 sugar

Potato Rolls are the perfect bun for this or your personal fave yummy bun to put BBQ on

In a bowl combine all the ingredients for the rub a dub dub...

-Rub it on the brisket

-Place into a larger crock pot and put on high for 5 1/2 hours or low for 10-11.  I have made this in the oven, but the crock pot makes for a much more tender piece of meat.  If you don't have one stick it in a 300 degree oven, covered with foil, for 2 1/2-3 hours.

-Remove from crock pot/or oven and cool for a few minutes
-Take off any remaining fat or gristle that you might see, anything that looks yuck!
-Cut across grain into very thin slices
-Place into another roasting dish

The Sauce
-Mix together the salad dressing, spicy BBQ sauce, and sugar
-Pour over sliced brisket
-Bake at 325 degrees for around 45 min give or take

And Bam...so good I can not tell you!

Now for the sweet stuff...

Brown Sugar Oatmeal Coconut Chewy Cookies

OK first things first, do not be afraid of the coconut in said recipe.  I am not a coconut person, I'm not horrified by it, but I don't seek it out for toppings on my ice cream, and I would actually throw out an Almond Joy if it wound up in my candy bag as a kid on Halloween...so don't be scared of this, because it's what makes the cookie so chewy and yum...I promise!

For the tasty mix
1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter at room temp
1 1/4 brown sugar packed
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 eggs
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 cup quick cooking oats
1 1/2 shredded coconut (you can use less, but don't be scrarrrrreed!)

-Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees 
-Cream butter (at room temperature) and sugars together
-Add eggs one at a time until well incorporated 
-Add vanilla
-Add baking powder, baking soda, and salt to the wet mixture
-Add about 1/2 the flour until JUST incorporated...careful here, don't over mix.  Scrape down sides of bowl as you go, add remaining flour...DON'T OVERMIX...otherwise tough cookies and your muffing won't be happy...
-Add in oats and coconut...again DON'T OVERMIX!!!
-Roll dough into balls about 1-1/2 inches and place on parchment lined cookie sheet
-Bake 8-10 minutes until the cookies are JUST browning around the edges

And the voilà...

Oh and have one of these too...
