The Cookstr Weekly: Super Snacking

January 18, 2013
Here’s a confession: Sometimes, I eat in front of the television. Sure, I feel a little guilty about it, but there are times when kicking back with a plate of good cheese or a bowl of homemade soup or some fresh-out-of-the-oven nachos can be pretty irresistible. Times like awards shows, or the season premiere of Downton Abbey, or – you guessed it – the Super Bowl. So I quite enjoyed putting together a collection of recipes that are made for guilt-free vegging out in front of the tube, from potato skins to guacamole – with just a few surprises in between.
And if you’d like to make your own list of recipes for your own Super Bowl party, or for any other occasion, I’m really excited to announce a new feature in My Cookstr! It allows you to organize recipes into different lists of your choice. You can read more about it at the bottom of this email. Please let us know what you think, and what else you’d like to see on Cookstr next. 

Warmest regards,

Whether you’re gearing up to watch the big game or far more focused on the food than the field goals, it’s worth thinking beyond cellophane bags of chips and lukewarm wing platters covered in tinfoil. Lauren Groveman’s recipe for Dates Stuffed with Roquefort Cheese and Topped with Walnuts is at home at a cocktail party, but the combination of savory, sweet, cheesy and salty notes is just as happy kicking back on the coffee table for an indulgent game day tradition.
