This week: The best wings and game-day snacks, giveaways, EYBD previews and more.

The Super Bowl is this Sunday in the United States. While football fans are tuning in for the football showdown, there are even more of us that are excited for the anticipated commercials (Super Bowl commercials in the US are a big deal) and the feast that is spread out to snack upon during field goals, touchdowns, flag throwing, and commentary.

Most Americans think of chicken wings as the perfect game-day viewing food. Eaten with our hands and perfect with beer what’s not to love? My absolute favorite wings are the Wonder wings from The South’s Best Butts and Ike’s Vietnamese fish sauce wings from Andy Ricker’s Pok Pok. Other game-day favorites include nachos, chili, and dips (and chips). These snacks are perfect for any occasion whether it be sports related, getting together with friends, watching a movie or just because. This Sunday, I am making a pot of my famous chili with all the fixings and pastry-wrapped mini-sausages. For dessert probably brownies! What is your go-to recipe for snacking and viewing?
