Some may argue that Super Bowl Sunday is just as much about the food as it is the game. Let's face it, if your team didn't make it or if you find the commercials more interesting than the touchdowns, then why not focus on feeding the fans instead of being glued to the tube. Super Bowl food tends to lean towards quantity over quality. There's nothing wrong with noshing on party platters of chicken wings and pigs in a blanket. However, with a little effort, you can make something new and different, yet with all the traditional fanfare of Super Bowl party food.

On a wing and a prayer, these appetizers are a fan favorite.
Here’s a confession: I’m a Denver Bronco’s fan. Perhaps it has something to do with saintly quarterback, Timmy Tebow, or backup QB coverboy, Brady Quinn.

This Super Bowl Sunday, like any food-loving American occasionally given to gluttony, I’m planning a menu of copious casual eats. While I am a big fan of savory spreads, molten, meaty chilis, and striated layer dips, the centerpiece of the Kettle spread will be the wings. And of course, they’ll be hot! Here’s my recipe for wings — my husband says he prefers them to Hooters. Wings: INGREDIENTS: 2 1/2 pounds chicken wings, split and tips discarded 1 tsp salt 1 Tbsp Goya Adobo …
