Meatless Monday: Game-Day Food

The Super Bowl is just a few days away, and if you haven’t planned your game-day spread, get rolling with a DIY taco bar. The concept is quick and easy, and it lets guests pick their favorite flavors. Though meaty fillings are the go-to, you can keep it all-veg with grilled zucchini, sauteed mushrooms and roasted eggplant, or this recipe for cauliflower and lentil tacos. Jason Wrobel, the host of How to Live to 100, favors the two ingredients for their high nutrients and flavor-absorbing powers. Topped with a heaping spoonful of guacamole – Jason adds cumin and cayenne – these tacos are so hearty and fresh, they’ll even score with the meat-lovers.

Say Cheers to Your Team on Game Day

On Sunday while your team is facing off in New Orleans (or perhaps waiting it out to try again next year), skip a pitcher of beer in favor of these classier cocktails. The Long Bar at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa passed along a few theme drinks to turn your party into an at-home cocktail smack down between the Baltimore Ravens and the San Francisco 49ers. So while you’re watching all the action go down in the Superdome, be sure to have a cocktail shaker on hand. Not a fan of either team? We too are equal opportunity cocktail drinkers, so sip away.

Sifted: Cookie Cakes and Boozy Super Bowl Food

Half Baked’s Chocolate Chip Cookie Cake
5 Hot Links We’re Loving:

  1. Although it’s hard to believe, some people don’t like cake (crazy, we know). So for all those cake-haters, Half Baked brings you the chocolate chip cookie layer cake.
  2. For a chocolate chip cookie disguised as a cupcake, try The Baker Chick’s recipe.  Topped with peanut butter frosting, they’re devilishly good.
  3. If you’re looking for some serious Super Bowl grub, make Culinary Cool’s beer-cheese potato bites. Filled with mashed potatoes, bacon and green onions, and deep-fried in a crust of Ritz crackers, even the Harbaugh brothers would agree this one’s a winner.
  4. Feeling bold in the kitchen this week? Try How Sweet Eats’ beer biscuits with sriracha meyer lemon butter.
  5. Have you heard of Jeni’s Influenza Sorbet? According to the Huffington Post, the $12 pint of bourbon infused treat is a hot item this cold season.
