Recipes for the Big Game
Here are some delicious recipes that will let you see the game, too - if you do all the major preparations in advance.
Everyone's ready for a good time, including you! Early in the day, make the dessert. Dips and spreads can be made ahead, as well. Prepare the wintertime salad bar, and all you'll have left is the main dish.
