Hosting a Super Bowl party for friends and family is a big responsibility. Each year, well over 100 million people watch the championship game of the National Football League. In fact, according to Nielsen, 111.3 million people in the United States tuned in to watch the New England Patriots' thrilling and historic comeback victory in Super Bowl LI in 2017. While people anxiously anticipate watching the NFL's biggest game of the year, many are equally excited to attend Super Bowl parties, where they can watch the game with loved ones while enjoying delicious food and drink. Some Super Bowl party hosts may prefer to have their parties catered, while others enjoy getting in the kitchen to prepare some homemade foods for their guests. Hosts among the latter group can prepare familiar crowd favorites that are sure to please, such as this easily-prepared recipe for "Crusty Mac and Cheese" from Neal Corman's "Virgil's Barbecue Road Trip Cookbook" (St. Martin's Press).
With the clock ticking towards play-offs and the grandaddy of them all-the Super Bowl and you're putting together a snacking plan of attack, turn to recipes like these that you and your guests can savor for all four quarters of action. With different choices to draft from, there's no need for a superstar main course at the center of the meal. Instead, rely on options like customizable brats and pulled pork sandwiches, baked chicken wings and game-day dips for winners all around. Find more recipes for hosting game day at Culinary.net.
For many households, there are some requirements when you make time to prepare a family meal. Each component must be something you can prepare quickly around extra- curricular activities and homework, and it must feature foods that even the pickiest of eaters will happily devour.

With the New Year just around the corner, many people will be making their New Year's Eve resolution. Most will be to lose weight. Depriving yourself of your favorite holiday treats isn't only unpleasant, it's also unnecessary. Many experts recommend that instead, you focus on building a healthier lifestyle through a well-balanced, long-term eating plan. For example, Atkins offers a balanced approach with foods containing fiber-rich and nutrient-dense carbohydrates, as well as good fats and proteins, while focusing on reduced levels of refined carbohydrates and added sugars. When preparing your lighter menu, look for recipes that contain adequate protein, healthy fats and high-fiber carbohydrates, and you'll be able to enjoy the flavors of the season without guilt.
