Pull Up A Chair…

Ahhh, Superbowl Sunday approacheth.

And while I do hope the Steelers kick some righteous ass this Sunday — it’s awfully nice to have a team in the mix this year, I have to say — for me the fun is usually in the food and the commercials.  Most of that fun comes in planning what sort of food we’ll be eating, because my creative side gets a kick out of finding something new to add to the usual chips and such.

Thought we could all share some of our favorite recipes with each other this morning.  I’ve compiled some links to some truly yummy looking recipes for Superbowl munchies, some of which look downright healthy.


Before all the trash talk, the terrible towels, the cheers and taunts…comes the menu planning. What’s a good football game without equally awesome munchies?

So, let’s talk food and football. Pull up a chair…

— Eating Well magazine has an assortment of superbowl recipes, including a rather nummy looking one for boneless buffalo wings

— Speaking of wings, MyRecipes has a whole collection of wing recipes to try.  And an assortment of dips and spreads, too.  In fact, they have a huge section of superbowl recipes, menus, and planning ideas for the reading.  Useful!  Including some lightened tailgating faves. And a fabu looking easy recipe for mini-mufulettas.

— Vegetarian Times has some veg suggestions, including a kick-ass looking salsamole.

— Real Simple has some good looking crowd-pleasing dishes

—  Rachel Ray has a whole section of her magazine website dedicated to superbowl fixings.  As does Food Network.   Including a pretty easy looking recipe for 7-layer dip.

—  For more refined palates, Gourmet has a feast of recipes.   And Food & Wine has a bunch as well, including this artichoke dip.  Bon Appetit has suggestions as well.

—  Of course, epicurious has a whole round-up of recipes, too.  As does iVillage.
