Something Delicious is Stirring at Latham

Sharing never tasted so good.

As New Year’s parties become mere memories, my focus shifts to the next big reason Americans have to gather together and celebrate with great food – Super Bowl Sunday.

I’ve learned that massive quantities of hot food and cold drinks are paramount for hosting a successful party.  That’s why I’ve asked Latham employees to share some of their favorite recipes for comfort foods and appetizers.  What I really enjoy about these recipes is that you can “fix ‘em and forget ‘em.”  There’s no need to spend your time in the kitchen when there’s a party going on!

What are your favorite party or potluck recipes?  Email them to me at or submit your recipe via our Latham Hi-Tech Seeds Facebook page.  We’ll post recipes on our blog in advance of the Super Bowl.  It’s a win-win: readers will get to enjoy your recipe, and you’ll be entered into a drawing for a 6-quart locking crock pot!

We’re also gathering ideas on Latham’s Pinterest account, so feel free to follow our “Super Bowl Party” board. If you have any great Idea’s make sure to tag us in your pin. (@Latham Seeds #LathamSuperBowl)

Email your favorite party or potluck recipe to and be entered into a drawing for this Locking Crock-Pot. Submit your favorite recipe via our Latham Hi-Tech Seeds Facebook page for a double entry into the drawing!
