Here are 25 great recipes for salsa and guacamole for smooth dipping on Super Bowl Sunday.

These toasty twice-baked cookies have the flavors of the season and a mellow, earthy sweetness from maple syrup. They're excellent with a cup of tea (or a tiny espresso or not-so-tiny snifter of brandy.)
This brittle is definitely not traditional. This is not a slab of milk or white chocolate studded with nuts or chunks of peppermint. This is part cookie, part brownie, and wholly delicious.
Warm and chewy and comforting, these cookies are just the thing to eat alongside a nice cup of tea by the fire.
Chocolate and peanut butter is an undeniably good combination. A force to be reckoned with in the realm of flavor combinations. Sure, everyone has their own favorite way to pair the two, their own killer recipe. But here is just one more to add to your chocolate-peanut butter repertoire (and it may just be your last).
Things are classics for a reason, but a little updating never hurt anyone. And these most certainly will not hurt you. These cookies take the traditional oatmeal raisin and turns it on its head in a deliciously sweet and salty iteration. They are a truly well-rounded cookie, and each bite is a welcome surprise.
Candied Australian ginger coupled with unsweetened dried cherries gives these holiday cookies a nice fruity chew and a bright tartness that shines through the spicy dough.

For chocolate fiends like me, now's the perfect time to take things into your own hands, with these Double Chocolate Coconut Macaroons.
Forget old fashioned sugar cookies. Leave your rustic drop cookies for another occasion. Save the peanut butter blossoms for the New Year. These bad boys are something worth shimmying down a chimney for.
These chocolate snowflakes have a deep chocolaty flavor, courtesy of unsweetened cocoa powder, and a good hit of salt. And the texture's one that even Goldilocks would approve of—not too soft, not too crisp, and just right.
Real Champagne is one of our favorite wines on the planet. But sometimes you want bubbles on a budget, and Champagne's just not an option. We spoke to sommeliers from across the country and asked them what sparkling wines they recommend beyond Champagne.
We asked wine experts from across the country what they like to open when it's party time.

We asked chefs from around the country about their least favorite drinks. (Yes, some of them are still avoiding the booze that brings back terrible college memories.)

Chicken Salad is great and all, but it's definitely been done. You can vary the ingredients a little bit—grapes and slivered almonds is one of my favorites—but the basic chicken + mayo base doesn't change much. And frankly, it gets a little boring.

You can always recognize a fellow cereal lover. Well, perhaps "lover" isn't strong enough. Cereal obsessive? Cereal junkie? You know who you are. The conversation could really go on for hours: likes and dislikes, childhood favorites, discontinued and hard to find varieties. We never got sweet cereals as kids, we got Kashi and unfrosted shredded wheat, health-food brand O's and Fiber One. It's finally time to have that conversation here.
