Sweeten Up Halftime with Madonna’s Favorite Treat

Admit it: Football is great and all, but the highlight of Sunday’s big game is the halftime performance. OK, I know that statement doesn’t apply to everyone, but it’s not every day Madonna rocks out a montage of old songs (plus her new single, Give Me All Your Luvin, with M.I.A. & Nicki Minaj) in [...]

Thirsty Thursday: A Beer and a Ball

It’s more than just alliteration; it’s a statement, a proclamation that Thursdays are when the weekend should really start. Kicking it off right is the key, and what better way than with a cocktail that not only takes the edge off, but tastes good too. Last week we shared a recipe for a Brown Butter Old Fashioned; [...]

Last Minute Big Game Dips

Whether you’re hosting a big game bash or taking your food on the road, dip is the perfect portable, last-minute app, and we have some delightfully unexpected finds. Start with Nadia G’s Fried Peppers with Onion and Dill Dip (and throw a few carrots, celery and other crudite onto plate for people who’d rather not [...]

Ultimate App: Spicy Sweet Potato and Chicken Fritters

I’m probably not the first person to admit I’m more interested in Game Day Food than the Big Game itself. When people get together with a bevy of fingers foods, you can certainly count on me showing up. It’s probably one of my favorite ways to eat — a little bit of this, a little bit of [...]

Canned Man Food

I am not a sports fan. I had a brief flirtation with the excitement of professional sports last October when my home team won the World Series, but by and large sporting events just don’t make my radar. But there’s some kind of big football event coming up, I hear? I don’t know thing one [...]

Halftime Banana Cupcakes

Some things people might be sad about by halftime on Sunday: No cheerleaders. Bon Jovi isn’t the halftime performer. And there’s a good chance not everyone will be happy with the score by then, whether they’re rooting for the Packers, the Steelers, or themselves in the football pool. Really, the only safe bet this weekend [...]

Countdown to Super Bowl: I’m Rooting for the Chili

Most Sunday afternoons, I’m happy to watch football with a bag of chips, but this Sunday is the Super Bowl and my team isn’t playing — sigh — so I’ll be paying a lot more attention to what’s on the menu. When it comes to game-day eats, I’m usually partial to wings, but after attending NYC’s first [...]

DIY Pretzels: Steelers Vs. Packers

As a major food person and a seriously minor football fan, I get a bit more excited about the, er, touchdowns on the buffet table than I do about the ones on the field. So I can’t offer any insight on which team will come away victorious, but I do know this: Salty-on-the-outside, soft-on-the-inside pretzels are [...]

Countdown to Super Bowl: A World of Wings

Nothing says football like wings. The light crunch of their crispy skin, the tangy, mouth-watering sauce, the way the first bite burns your mouth because you just can’t wait — it’s all part of the game-day tradition. With the Super Bowl coming up this Sunday, it’s time to get those wings ready for kick off.

Steelers Treats vs Packers Treats

Which team will take the cake, er, Super Bowl ring this year? Like Mom always said, “It doesn’t matter if you win or lose, it’s how you plan your menu.” For the snack portion of your big game buffet, football fans expect the usual favorites: wings, 7-layer dip, maybe a taco bar, or a steaming [...]
