16 Salty Snacks for Game Day

January 30, 2015

If you're planning on watching the big game, you are going to need something, a lot of things, to snack on. Supporting your favorite team from the couch doesn't have to mean sad, over-sauced chicken wings or fluorescent cheese products (unless, of course, you're a Packers fan). But there's no reason to slave over the stove and miss the first half of the game, either.

So take back your (snack) game: Make a few or all 16 of these recipes before kickoff, and you'll be thanking yourself by halftime.

Let's have dinner sometime. There will be champagne and ice cream for sure; everything else is up in the air.

This makes me wish I cared at all about the Super Bowl. ;)

Woah to the anchovy butter! What a great idea! I love making lots of dips like hummus, guac etc - always an essential!
