I'm a very competitive person.Whether I'm competing for top honors at school, cheering my favorite team on in full gear from head to toe, or whipping up a dish for the community potluck- it's important to me that I stand out. It's hard to argue that we're nearing one of the largest annual sporting events in North America; but, whatever your sport, one of the best things about championships and titles is that everyone comes together to indulge in great food with friends and family. As I prepare for Game Day, and eagerly await the return of my true love, Baseball, I find myself in need of easily portable dishes that can satisfy the snacking mentality of large groups gathered around a television for several hours. Most importantly, when hosting, I want to have dishes that can be stored and served instantly, with little to no cleanup.
