Live! Super Bowl Half Time Show Recap: Some Things Are Better Left In The P-A-S-T, Madonna

6 Feb

First and foremost, I luv’s me some Vogue, and Material Girl totally went my head. All in all I respect Madonna as an entertainer.

In 1990, I was vouge-in with the best of em;  But, like Boys II Men, some things are better left in the 90’s.

Madonna’s Super Bowl half time show was wack (yes since we’re in the 90’s I will use 90’s slang), and I nominate the song “Give Me All Your Luvin” for the worst song ever award,it literally causes me emotional distress when I hear it. I can tell that the producers were like ” what is the crappiest song we can make in the shortest amount of time…. L-U-V Madonna…. Y-O-U.. You wanna.. that’s it!”

While the roman theme is great, and I can appreciate a good toga party any day.. But where in the hell does the Roman theme fit with any Madonna song ever made???  This is a classic case of theme-disconnection.

Wicked LCD screen and light displays, and then you have Cupid dancing on a tight rope?  When in doubt through LMFAO in the mix and get people to shufflin’…. eehh that didn’t work either, not even the fro-listic duo could save the day.

The Super Bowl Half Time Show is serious business, and this is the first time in a long time that I was more entertained by the commercials then the half time show.

Have we lost our way Super Bowl Half Time Show committee people……Get it together… you have 12 months.

Well so far, you can always count on the commercials…

Enjoy these funny Super Bowl Sunday commercials!Holla!

Eat! Super Bowl Eats Day 4: Fried Tamale On A Stick, Oh My!

2 Feb

I don’t think one can ask for anything more delicious when it comes to these bite size beauties.

These  tamale remix is small in size, but mega in flavor. For day 4 of Super Bowl Eats, I give you……..

Fried Tamale on A Stick


  • 1 Pound Prepared Taco Meat
  • 3 Cups Masa Harina
  • 3 Cups Warm Water
  • 1/4 Cup Butter
  • Oil for frying


Make your favorite taco meat, whether it be with Old El Paso seasoning from a packet or a homemade spice blend with sauteed peppers and onions. Allow to cool.

Prepare tamale dough by mixing butter and masa harina and salt, then slowly adding the water. The dough should become wet and moldable. It should be around the consistency of peanut butter.

Flatten some dough in your hand, then add a spoonful of your taco meat, then wrap the dough around the meat forming a ball.

Steam your tamale balls for about two hours.

Remove the balls from the steamer, dust with flour, and fry for a few minutes until browned on all sides.

Serve with salsa.

This week Food & The City will deliver appetizer recipes every day! We’ve searched high and low for the most interesting, and delicious appetizer recipes that are sure to enhance all of your grunting, high-fiving, and chest bumping Super Bowl Sunday action!

This first recipe is the epitome of chessy-salty as it marries two snack classics, pretzels and cheese, then they play in God’s gift to cooking,  vegetable oil…. I present to you…

Pretzel Crusted Fried Cheese With Dipping Sauce


  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan or asiago cheese
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1 1/2 cups plus 2 teaspoons Gold Medal unbleached all-purpose flour
  • 8 ounces thin pretzel sticks
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 4 large eggs
  • 5 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • vegetable oil, for frying
  • SAUCE:
  • 3 tablespoons sour cream
  • 3 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
  • 2 teaspoons granulated sugar

Then Do This:

Pulse the mozzarella, Parmesan and cheddar cheeses and 2 teaspoons flour in a food processor until smooth. Roll tablespoons of the cheese mixture into 12 smooth balls. Transfer to a plate and freeze until firm, about 15 minutes.Wipe out the food processor and add pretzels, pulsing until mostly finely ground (a few chunks are OK). Transfer to a shallow dish and set aside. Mix the remaining flour with ground pepper in another shallow dish and set aside. Whisk together eggs and mustard in a third dish and set aside.
Remove cheese balls from freezer and dip one at a time into the egg mixture, then in the flour, then in egg mixture again, then roll in ground pretzels until fully coated. Repeat with all cheese balls and transfer to a plate. Refrigerate 20 minutes to set.
Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Heat 1 inch vegetable oil in a large, sturdy saucepan or skillet until a deep-fry thermometer reads 360 degrees F. Place a cooling rack in a rimmed baking sheet and set aside.

Using a slotted spoon, lower cheese balls, about 3-4 at a time, into the hot oil and fry until golden, about 30 to 45 seconds. Remove from oil with slotted spoon and place on cooling rack. Repeat with remaining cheese balls and place cooling rack with baking sheet in oven, baking cheese balls for about 5 minutes.

To make the sauce:
Whisk together sour cream, brown mustard, horseradish and sugar. Serve immediately with warm fried cheese bites.
