5 beer cocktail recipes that are a step up from a bunch of bottles in a bucket of ice

I admit it: I’m the cliche food person for whom the Super Bowl is all about food. I love anything with guacamole, nachos of all kinds, and even get excited about trying t make healthy game day recipes for our crew. But for me, the buck stops at beer. Or at least it used to; ever since I realized that even my wine snob husband opts for a cold bottle of brew on game day, I’ve been trying to keep an open mind, and these creative beer cocktail recipes are helping me. It’s just what it sounds like: Beer and liquor mixed into one...

Healthy game day food: 9 skinny Super Bowl recipes that bench the guilt

I’m not much of a football fan, but I am a sucker for game day eats. Nachos, chips and dips, wings–you name it, I’ll eat it.

Dozens of last minute Super Bowl recipes: Delicious help is on the way!

Lately we’ve been putting together some of our favorite Super Bowl recipes to keep everyone’s stomach coated for the party during big game tonight.

The Super Bowl commercial we’re most excited about: Bono’s Project (RED) song, Invisible

Because we’re huge fans of moms everywhere, we’re also fans of Bono and his ONE organization and Project (RED).

Here’s the thing — it is free! But it will only be available from 6:00 pm Sunday night until 11:59 pm EST Monday night through the Project (RED) Site. [update: here’s the link for the U2...
