All the classics are here, from Rib-eye Steaks to Bloody Mary Chicken Wings, but besides those tasty treats, author Ray 'Dr. BBQ' Lampe has filled The NFL Gameday Cookbook with photos of memorable NFL moments, so it’s also a fun read during commercials and half-time.
I’m not going to serve game day eats in plain old bowls this year, and neither should you! This sporty Snack Helmet is regulation size and has bowls in the faceguard and top to hold any kind of treat.
Did you know that Superbowl Sunday is one of the busiest pizza delivery days of the year? I’m going to forego the wait (and the delivery charges) and use this Charcoal Companion PizzaQue Pizza Stone on my grill for authentic brick-oven flavor. Yum!
At my house, hot chocolate and other warm drinks are a cold-weather must. But we don’t bother with the microwave. Instead, I break out the Back to Basics Cocoa Grande Hot Drink Maker, which quickly whips up instant cocoa, coffee and tea into fancy (and frothy) café-style drinks. Yum!
Autumn is the time for apples, and I use them in everything from oven-fresh pies to warm mulled cider. So I think every kitchen should be stocked with the RSVP Green Apple Slicer, Corer, and Peeler. It has a suction base that firmly attaches to the countertop while you operate its crank to core, peel and slice apples into the perfect size.

Tall enough to accommodate two pieces of bread and their fixings, these dishwasher-safe cutters keep sandwiches fluffy and come in an array of animal, car and other fun shapes. Plus, it’s an easy way to get rid of the crusts!

And with some flavor additions on hand, your favorite student will always have access to a thirst-quenching drink.
I have a big, heavy cutting board that I use for big cooking projects, but I get the most use out of my Totally Bamboo 3-Piece Bamboo Cutting Board Set for day-to-day dinners. I can grab the largest board to slice up veggies for a stir-fry, or I can grab the smallest board to handle, say, a few garlic cloves. When I'm done, I simply clean them with warm water and store away in... more

If I had to take one cooking utensil with me to a deserted island, it would be a silicon spatula. I use my spatulas every time I cook or bake. They're great for sautéing veggies in a skillet or for cleaning every last drop of cake batter from the mixing bowl to transfer to the pan. I even use my spatula to ice cakes. This selection of silicon spatulas includes different sizes and sets... more

The set includes four glass bowls (1-quart, 1-1/2-quart, 2-1/2-quart, and 4-quart capacities) and four... more
I use my Preserve Colander nearly every day. I use it to drain pasta and to rinse fruits and vegetables, among other things. The colander is made in the USA and is made from 100 percent recycled materials. It's also BPA-free. The curved handles make it easy to grip when holding up to drain. It's surprisingly sturdy and easy to clean by hand, or you can throw it in the dishwasher.
Berries are showing up more and more in my local farmers' market. When in season, there's nothing better than fresh strawberries, blackberries and blueberries. I can sit in front of the TV and pop them like candy. These Zak Designs Inc. Rose Colanders are both cute and functional. Just throw your berries into the small colander, give them a rinse and serve immediately straight from the bowl. The melamine bowls are dishwasher-safe and stain-resistant.

When it comes to brownies, there are two kinds of people: edge people and center people. We're big fans of the outer, chewy edges (although we won't turn down a center piece), which is why we're hoping Santa brings us a Baker's Edge Brownie Pan. The pan's unique design produces perfectly cooked brownies that have chewy edges on two sides of the brownie. The pan makes a great gift for any cook and/or brownie... more
