A MUST-HAVE ON YOUR SUPER BOWL PARTY TABLE
You have to have something around for people to snack on throughout the party. I love to have bowls of Wonderful Pistachios laying around. Not only are they delicious, but they’re a good source of protein and fiber. I like the Roasted & Salted Wonderful Pistachios, but they also have Sweet Chili and Salt & Pepper. You really can’t go wrong. Just serve up in a bowl for your guests to grab and don’t forget to leave out an empty bowl for the shells. For more information, visit www.getcrackin.com
FAVORITE PART OF HAVING A BIG GAME PARTY
The food of course! And in addition to all the good sides we have talked about, you have to have a main event! I like serving Chicken Wings, but they have to be made just right. I only use Char-Broil grills and cookers. They are known for making “the Most Forgiving Grills on Earth” but they have created The Big Easy Oil-Less Fryer.

It uses the same TRU-Infrared™cooking technology found in Char-Broil’s gas grills so you know it will be juicy inside and a crispy outside every time. Plus you save on the calories and clean-up. And I can tell you how to get a portable Char-Broil grill for free.
