Dipped Football Strawberries
Ingredients

Ingredients

  • 1 basket large strawberries with stems, cleaned and dried
  • 12 oz Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers
  • 4 oz Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers

Directions

Place Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers in a microwave-safe container and microwave at half power or defrost setting for 30 seconds. Stir thoroughly (product keeps its original shape until stirred). If not completely melted, continue to microwave in 15 second intervals and stir until smooth. Overheating can cause wafers to burn.

Hold each strawberry by stem and dip into melted wafers. Place coated strawberries on waxed paper. Cool in refrigerator for 10-15 minutes, or until firm.

Melt White Wafers (using the same method outlined above) and pour into a piping bag or plastic zip bag with the tip cut off. Make one vertical line down the middle of the long side of the strawberry, and four short horizontal lines across the vertical line to create the football laces.

Cool in refrigerator for 10-15 more minutes before serving.

Note: You can substitute Ghirardelli Dark Melting Wafers with Ghirardelli 60% Cacao Bittersweet Chocolate Chips and Ghirardelli White Melting Wafers with Ghirardelli Classic White Chips by adding 1.5 tbsp. vegetable shortening per 12 oz Chips and following the melting directions above.

The Meatrodome!
Ingredients

Supplies:

  • Long straight edge
  • Pencil
  • 2 utility knives
  • Cardboard sheets
  • Tape
  • Astro turf
  • Tin Foil
  • Can of spray glue
  • Finger foods
  • Crudités
  • Snacks to fill the stadium


Instructions:

Step #1
Using cardboard sheeting (or even box!), a utility knife, a straight-edge and some tape create the sub structure for the stadium. Cut out a base shape onto which everything will sit. Build each element as a separate piece. Eg, build 2 rows of lower seating, 2 rows of upper seating, 2 rows of curved lower seating, 2 rows of upper curved seating.

Step #2

Using wide packing tape, reinforce corners to keep boxes in newly formed shape (i.e. Seating rows). Using wide packing tape, adhere rows together, then attach to base.

Step #3

Build the playing field a few inches high, so a box will fit beneath it as the end zones...which will house food. Cover in astro turf making sure there are cutouts for the end zone. Spray mount astro turf to box.

Step #4

Cover entire stadium in foil, so the stadium can be used again! Make barricades to separate foods with rolled up foil.

Step #5

Fill stadium with sandwiches, chips, guacamole, chicken wings, dips, veggies, pretzels, popcorn, etc.

Step #6

Name your stadium!

  • ½ cup chopped scallions
  • ¼ cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cups grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 ½ teaspoons hot red chili flakes
  • 1 cup crushed tortilla chops
  • 2 jalapenos, seeded and chopped or sliced

Queso Dip Ingredients:

  • 1 10-ounce cans Ro-Tel Original Diced Tomatoes & Green Chilies, undrained
  • 2 16-ounce cans refried beans
  • 1-teaspoon oregano
  • ½ teaspoon ground cumin
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder

Kick Butt Chili Recipe:

  1. Heat a cast-iron frying pan or heavy-bottomed skillet over medium heat. Add 1 tablespoon of canola oil and half of the meat, and brown for about 8 minutes.
  2. Pour the meat into a strainer positioned over a bowl, and let the fat drain.
  3. Set the strained meat aside. Wipe down the frying pan using a paper towel, cleaning off the residual oil and bits of beef from the bottom. Heat 1 tablespoon of canola oil in the frying pan and cook and drain the remaining beef using the same process. Discard the drained fat.
  4. Put the beef in the crock pot.
  5. Add 12-ounces of pinto beans and 12-ounces of black beans that have been soaked over night. Canned beans will turn into a mushy paste in a Crock Pot, so be sure to use dry beans.

  • Turn the Crock Pot to the lowest setting possible to keep the chili warm throughout the day without over cooking it!
  • You can make this up to 3 days ahead of time. The flavors of the chili will develop more as it marinates. The day of all you have to do is pull your chili out and heat it up!

Queso Dip Recipe:

  1. Combine undrained tomatoes and cheese, refried beans and spices in medium saucepan.
  2. Simmer over low heat until cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, turn Crock Pot to lowest setting to keep warm all day.
  3. Serve warm as a dip with tortilla chips, crackers or cut-up fresh vegetables.

Spinach & Artichoke Recipe:

  1. Combine cream cheese and half and half in a bowl until well blended.
  2. Add all ingredients except Monterey jack and stir well.
  3. Pour mixture into crock-pot, cook on high for 1 ½ to 2 hours or until warmed through.

  • Chopped cilantro
  • Minced onions

Coleslaw With Creamy Poppy-Seed-Lemon Dressing Ingredients:

  • 1 head Savoy cabbage
  • 1½ cups mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • ⅛ teaspoon cayenne
  • 1 tablespoon poppy seeds
  • 2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Cracked pepper

Guacamole Ingredients: Makes 4 to 5 cups

  • 4 ripe avocados
  • ½ medium white onion, finely chopped
  • ½ cup cilantro, finely chopped
  • 6 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1½ teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 jalapenos, 1 finely chopped, and 1 sliced thin, for garnish
  • 1 lime, sliced thin, for garnish


Big Game Sliders Recipe:

  1. With a 2-inch biscuit cutter, cut slider-size buns out of the dinner rolls. If the buns are too thick (they will be if you are using Hawaiian dinner rolls), just press down to flatten them before using the biscuit cutter. They will bounce back just a little, leaving you with the perfect buns.
  2. Shape the sliders by rolling a golf ball–size meatballs between your palms, then pressing them into 2-inch-wide patties ¾ inch thick. You should have enough beef to make 16 to 18 miniburgers, maybe more. Sprinkle both sides of the sliders with kosher salt and pepper.
  3. Heat a grill pan or heavy skillet until searing hot. Brush a tablespoon of canola oil over the grill pan. Sprinkle the miniburgers with kosher salt. Place the miniburgers salt side down on the grill, and sprinkle the tops of the burgers with kosher salt. Grill for 1½ minutes on each side, then flip over once more and add a slice of cheese on top of each burger. Grill for 1 minute, until the cheese has melted (if you have a large enough lid, cover the burgers, as this will help the cheese melt quicker). Transfer the burgers to a warm platter.
  4. Grill the buns on the same grill pan, lightly toasting the inside tops and bottoms only (about 15 to 20 seconds).
  5. To assemble the burger, put a squirt of ketchup and a pickle on the bottom bun, add the burger, and cover with the top bun. Serve immediately and wait for the compliments!


Chipotle Sauce Recipe:

  1. Make the Chipotle Sauce first.
  2. Preheat the oven to 250°. Place the sliced tomatoes on a baking sheet, sprinkle generously with Kosher salt, and add a likewise generous sprinkle of cracked black pepper to taste.
  3. Drizzle approximately ¼ cup olive oil over the tomatoes, and then bake in the oven for 3 hours. Remove from the oven, let cool, and then gently pull the skins off. Chop the tomatoes into small chunks.
  4. Heat a skillet on medium high for 2 minutes. Add ¼ cup olive oil and the chopped tomatoes. Add thyme, oregano, cloves, cinnamon stick, and chipotle chiles. Stir to combine, simmer for a very few minutes, and then add salt if necessary. Cover and set aside until the pork is done. This sauce can be made the night before.
  5. To make the Carnitas, preheat the oven to 325°. Bring the chicken stock to a simmer in a saucepan. Meanwhile, heat a heavy oven-proof pot or Dutch Oven for 2 minutes on the stove at a medium high heat. Add the olive oil and heat for an additional 30 seconds. Season the pork with salt and pepper and sear until golden brown on all sides.
  6. Lower the heat to medium, add the onions to the pot and sauté for 8 to 10 minutes to bring out the natural juices.
  7. Add the garlic and sauté for 2 minutes. Sprinkle on the salt and black pepper.
  8. Carefully pour in the hot chicken stock to cover about ¾ of the way up the side of the pork. Add the thyme and oregano and cover the pot. Cook in the oven for 4 hours.
  9. Ten minutes before the pork is ready, place the wrapped tortillas in the oven to warm.
  10. Remove the pork from the oven and place on a cutting board. Using a fork, shred the pork and add it to the pot with the Chipotle Sauce. Add two ladles of the chicken stock and mix together. Heat through on medium low heat.
  11. Take a warm tortilla and place a generous portion of the Carnitas on top, drizzle with Mexican créma and avocados and whatever other toppings you choose. Fold over and enjoy!


Coleslaw With Creamy Poppy-Seed-Lemon Dressing Recipe:

  1. Chop the cabbage into small pieces and place in a bowl.
  2. In a separate bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, lemon juice, vinegars, cayenne, and poppy seeds. Pour the dressing over the cabbage, and mix well.
  3. Add the salt and pepper to taste, cover, and chill at least 2 hours before serving.


Guacamole Recipe:

  1. Split the avocados along the sides and divide in half.
  2. Remove the pit, and scoop the avocado into a ceramic bowl. Mash with a potato masher (not a ricer) until smooth.
  3. Add the onion, cilantro, lime juice, salt, and chopped jalapeno, and continue to mash until the guacamole looks whipped and fluffy.
  4. Adjust the seasoning, adding more salt if necessary.
  5. Place an avocado pit in the middle of the guacamole to help keep it from turning dark. Garnish with sliced lime and jalapeno.
  6. Serve immediately with warm tortilla chips, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  7. Refrigerate leftovers in an air tight container for up to 24 hours.

Serve with warm tortilla chips. To warm tortilla chips, place them on a baking sheet in the oven at 400 ° F for 3 to 5 minutes. Serve immediately.

Laura Nativo's Big Game Pet Trick

What do you need to do in order to achieve this trick?

  • A Clicker
  • Toys and Treats – for a reward.
  • An empty and full can/bottle of your preferred drink.
  • A towel/tug toy to wrap around the fridge handle.

What Are The Five Steps You Have To Teach The Dog?

  1. Desensitize to can/ bottle.
  2. Fetch the can/bottle.
  3. Open the fridge door by tugging.
  4. Close the fridge door.
  5. Distance-you have to send your dog to go get a soda.

Walking it out:

  1. Desensitize the can/bottle with the dog.
  2. Make sure the dog gets used to the can or bottle in its mouth.
  3. Make sure you give your dog a reward!
  4. After the dog is comfortable with the can or bottle start teaching the dog how to fetch it.
  5. Throw the can or bottle and have the dog fetch it.
  6. Always reward with a treat until the dog feels comfortable with the object.

The next step is tugging.

  1. Make sure the dog is comfortable tugging on a towel, or a braided towel because they will have to hold on to it in order to open the fridge door.
  2. Throw a treat near the fridge so you can start teaching the dog distance.
  3. The treat will lure them to fridge and then you call them back and give them another treat.
  4. Make sure to command the dog to "go get a soda’ every time you throw the treat for distance.
  5. When you are teaching the dog long distance your cue is "go get a soda" you want to run with the dog to the fridge and give a reward.
  6. Do this a few times with our dog.
  7. In order for the dog to open the fridge, tie the towel around the fridge handle and practice tugging with your dog on the fridge.
  8. Give your dog more treats when the fridge door opens, this way they know that they did some big.
  9. Once the fridge door opens point to the soda can or bottle and repeat the cue "go get a soda" and make sure treats are always given for each command.
  10. Finally after practicing multiple times your dog will be ready to "get you a soda" on cue.

Game Day Party Ideas with Jill Simonian

Face painting station – when they show crowd shots from the super bowl, I guarantee there will be plenty of people sporting their team colors. Why not join in the fun with your very own face pain.

Half-time games – offer people a chance to take a break from the tv, get up, get active and burn off some of those treats they’ve been eating during the first half of the game. Have some games for people to play, such as:

Football tossing contest – have guests toss football through a hula hoop or into a basket. Use sponge or foam balls so kids can play too. The person who gets the most scores during halftime wins a prize.

Half-time show trivia: - write up half-time show trivia questions on paper and place them in a container. The host starts the game by pulling out a piece of paper and reading the question – whoever gets the answer right gets to read the next question. Whoever gets the most right by the end of half time wins. Question example: Who had a wardrobe malfunction during her half-time show? Answer: Janet Jackson.

Super Bowl themed party favors – have something fun for your guests to take home.

• ¼ cup white candy coating or white chocolate chips

Recipe for Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Footballs:

  1. Prepare a baking sheet by lining it with waxed paper.
  2. Wash the strawberries and pat them dry.
  3. Make sure they're truly dry and don't have any wet patches, otherwise you'll have trouble dipping them.
  4. Melt the chocolate candy coating in the microwave, stirring after every 30 seconds until it is smooth and fluid.
  5. Hold a strawberry by the stem and dip it in the chocolate until it is almost entirely covered.
  6. Hold it over the bowl and let the excess drip back into the bowl, then scrape the bottom against the lip of the bowl.
  7. Place the berry on the prepared baking sheet.
  8. Repeat the process until all of the strawberries are covered with chocolate.
  9. Refrigerate the tray until the chocolate is set, for about 15 minutes.
  10. While you're waiting for the chocolate to harden, melt the white chocolate.
  11. Pour it into a paper cone or plastic baggie with a small hole cut in the corner.
  12. Draw a white chocolate line around the top and bottom of a strawberry, then add the white "laces" in the middle to make it look like a football.
  13. Repeat until all of the strawberries are decorated.
  14. Let the white chocolate harden completely.

Katie Cazorla's Tips To Create A Textured Football Manicure

How To Create A Textured Football Manicure

  • Have your nails painted a reddish brown.
  • Take a few drops of the same reddish brown nail polish, drop next to workspace.
  • Dip the smallest end of the nail dotter in the nail polish and dot entire nail.
  • Take nail art brush and, using white polish, draw half moon shaped at the base of the cuticle and half moon shape at the top of your nail, starting at the free edge, curling up and then back to the free edge, then draw the line with the laces.
  • Apply dry clear coat to seal it in.


Tips For Maintaining Detailed Manicures/Nail Art:

You definitely need a good top coat because that’s what seals in the nail art. There are so many good ones made specifically for nail art. Avoid using fast drying ones. Only use fast drying ones if you’re in a super hurry. You want one that’s a bit thicker.

Cristina’s Quick and Easy Pizza Dough
Ingredients

Ingredients:

  • 1 package active dry yeast
  • 1 &frac12; cups very warm water, at 110&deg;
  • 4 cups all-purpose flour, plus more for dusting
  • 1 &frac12; tsp. salt
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp. basil, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. thyme, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 Tbsp. parsley, finely chopped (optional)
  • 1 Tbsp. honey (optional)

Recipe:
To make dough:
You can make the dough a day or even a couple of weeks ahead. Put the individual balls in zip-top bags and refrigerate overnight or freeze.

  1. Dissolve the yeast in the warm water and set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, put the flour and salt in a food processor fitted with the steel blade. Process briefly to mix.
  3. With the machine running, add the water-yeast mixture in a steady stream. Turn the processor off and add the oil. Pulse a few times to mix in the oil.
  4. Scrape the soft dough out of the processor and onto a lightly floured surface. With lightly floured hands, quickly knead the dough into a mass, incorporating any bits of flour or dough from the processor bowl that weren't mixed in.
  5. Knead in the herbs.
  6. Cut the dough into 4 equal pieces with a knife or a dough scraper. Roll each piece into a tight, smooth ball, kneading to push the air out.
  7. If you want to bake the pizzas as soon as possible, put the dough balls on a lightly floured surface, cover them with a clean dishtowel and let them rise until they almost double in size, about 45 minutes.
  8. Meanwhile, turn your oven on, with the baking stone in it, to let the stone fully heat.
  9. In just 45 minutes, the dough is proofed. These dough balls are ready to be shaped.
  10. If you want to bake the pizzas tomorrow, line a baking sheet with a floured dishtowel, put the dough balls on it and cover them with plastic wrap, giving them room to expand (they'll almost double in size) and let them rise in the refrigerator overnight. To use dough that has been refrigerated overnight, simply pull it out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before shaping the dough into a pizza.
  11. Put the proofed or thawed ball of dough on a lightly floured wooden board. Sprinkle a little more flour on top of the ball. Using your fingertips, press the ball down into a flat cake about ½ inch thick. Flour your fingers—and the board—for easier handling.
  12. Stretch the dough to a thickness of about ¼ inch by using the backs of your hands or a rolling pin.
  13. Lift the dough and lay it over the back of the fist of one hand. Put your other fist under the dough, right next to your first fist. Now gently stretch the dough by moving your fists away from each other.
  14. Each time you do this stretch, rotate the dough. Continue stretching and rotating until the dough is thin, about ¼ inch, and measures about 9 inches across.
  15. Unless your dough is still cold from the freezer, it will be so soft that its own weight will stretch it out. Alternatively, use a rolling pin to roll out the dough thinly on a floured board.
  16. If you like a very thin pizza, roll the dough out to a 10-inch round. Be careful not to make it too thin and remember that the thinner the pizza, the less topping it can handle.
  17. Rub a bit of flour onto a wooden pizza peel (or the back of a baking sheet). Gently lift the stretched dough onto the floured peel. Top the pizza, scattering the ingredients around to within ½ inch of the border.

Cristina Cooks: Fingerling Potato Skins & Chicken Wings Recipes
Ingredients

Potato Skin Ingredients:

  • 1 pound fingerling potatoes, skins on and washed really well
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • ⅓ cup teriyaki sauce

Chicken Wing Ingredients:

  • 6 pounds chicken wings, cut up (36)
  • 2½ cups canola oil

Marinade Ingredients:

  • 1 quart buttermilk
  • ¼ cup Tabasco or hot sauce
  • 1 tsp. cayenne pepper

Wing Sauce Ingredients:

  • 1 Tbsp. unsalted butter
  • 2 cups Frank's Louisiana RedHot sauce
  • 4 Tbsp. Tabasco or hot sauce
  • 2 Tbsp. dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tbsp. + 1 tsp. apple cider vinegar

Coating for Chicken Wings:

  • 8 Tbsp. cornstarch
  • 2 tsp. ground black pepper
  • 2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. garlic powder

Recipe:

  1. Preheat oven to 350°. Put your oven rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Pour the tablespoon of olive oil in your hands and rub all over the potatoes. Place potatoes on the oven grate and bake for 30 minutes at 350° (Test for doneness by inserting a paring knife into the thickest part of the potato. If it slides in smoothly, then the potatoes are done).
  3. Remove the potatoes from the oven and let cool completely.
  4. Cut the potatoes in half, lengthwise. Gently scoop out the potato, leaving about ¼ inch of potato on the skin.
  5. Line the scooped out potato skins on a baking sheet.
  6. When ready to bake, slice the halves of potatoes into quarters. Line up the potatoes on a baking sheet.
  7. Using a pastry brush, brush the inside of the potato skins with the teriyaki sauce. Place in the oven and bake for 5 to 10 minutes at 350° or until the skins are crispy.

Serving options:
• Fill the skins with nonfat sour cream and scallions
• Sprinkle over with shredded cheese (cheddar) • Serve on the side with the chili • Use skins to scoop the bean dip, guacamole or chili

Chicken Wings Recipe:

  1. Place the chicken wings in a non-reactive bowl or large zip-top bag. In a separate bowl, combine buttermilk, Tabasco and cayenne pepper; whisk well. Pour the buttermilk mixture over the wings and mix to coat. Seal tightly and refrigerate for two days.
  2. When you are ready to prepare the wings, drain them in a colander in the sink, letting the marinade drip off. Place a baking rack over a rimmed baking sheet. Using tongs, line up the chicken wings and let air dry for 45 minutes.
  3. While the wings are drying, prepare the sauce. Melt the butter in a saucepan, then add Frank's hot sauce, Tabasco, brown sugar and apple cider vinegar. Bring to just under a boil. Turn off the heat and set aside.
  4. Preheat oven to 200°.
  5. In a bowl, whisk together cornstarch, black pepper, salt and garlic powder. On a large baking sheet, spread out as many wings as will fit. Sprinkle the cornstarch mixture over the wings and shake the pan back and forth to coat the wings. If you don't have enough coating make up another batch.
  6. Heat the canola oil in a heavy skillet over medium-high heat to 360°. Fry the wings without crowding them in the pan until golden and crisp, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  7. Transfer to baking sheet and keep warm in the oven. Finish frying the rest of the wings. (You can make the wings ahead up to this point. The wings without sauce can kept warm in the oven for up to 1 ½ hours.) When you are ready to serve them, bring the sauce to just under a boil. Pour over the wings and toss to coat the wings well, and serve.
