What's Cookin' Super Bowl Sunday?

So we have an East Coast match up set for Sunday: the New York Giants will take on the New England Patriots. And trust me readers, this is good for the Super Bowl menu.

My family's tradition is that we make something inspired by one team's home region for our Super Bowl meal. We've made gumbo for New Orleans and clam chowder for New England. Years ago when the Giants played I made Lobster Rolls and I am leaning in this direction again. (Although there's been a suggestion that we make pasta in honor of New York, which would be a fun hands-on activity with the kids.)

However, Super Bowl parties call to mind chips and dips. I am a sucker for a creamy, cheesy dip. Here are some faves:

Blue Cheese Dip 


Sun-"Drywall" Tomato, Feta and Greek Yogurt Dip

Crab Dip with Coarse Ground Mustard 

Another favorite snack is popcorn tossed in butter with parmesan and truffle salt. For more appetizer ideas, click here to visit the recipe index.

As for what to drink with your Super Bowl snacks, go with your favorite local craft brew, of course.

Enjoy the game, Madonna ;-) and the commercials! -alyce eyster
