Chef John's Hot Sloppy Joe Dip

Rating: 4.35 stars
43

For me this checks all the boxes for a hot party dip. It's relatively cheap and easy to make, but maybe more importantly, it's great hot, warm, or room temp. And it's also incredibly versatile.

Super Nachos

Rating: 4.73 stars
151

This makes a huge meal-sized tray of nachos with lots of good stuff! You can adjust ingredient quantities to suit your preference. Serve with extra chips if required. Great for game day.

Touchdown Pizza

Rating: 4.38 stars
42

My favorite sports pub serves this, and I've come up with a simple and delicious home version. Many local restaurants sell wing sauce, and most grocery stores carry it near the steak and BBQ sauces. It's rich, so serve in squares as an appetizer. Serve ranch dressing, celery, and carrot sticks on the side. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Texas Pulled Pork

Rating: 4.52 stars
3026

Slow cooked, Texas-style pulled pork that is served on a buttered and toasted roll. My family's favorite.

Best Brownies

These brownies always turn out!

The Juiciest Hamburgers Ever

Rating: 4.04 stars
76

My husband prepares these burgers throughout the grilling season--they are incredibly juicy and flavorful. Great served with corn on the cob.

Outrageous Warm Chicken Nacho Dip

Rating: 4.73 stars
845

This is my jazzed up version of classic queso dip taken to a heartier level, perfect for football games, tailgating or for taking along to pot lucks in a slow cooker! This is a serious crowd-pleaser that is served hot as a dip, spooned over crisp tortilla chips nacho-style, or rolled up in a warm flour tortilla! The heat can be turned up or down with the addition of jalapenos to taste.

Prize Winning Baby Back Ribs

Rating: 4.6 stars
769

A foolproof, simple recipe for the most tender, delectable ribs you've ever had. Follow the directions exactly, and success is guaranteed!

Ram (Rosemary, Ancho, Molasses) Wings

Rating: 4.71 stars
7

Flavored with rosemary, ancho, and molasses, these chicken wings honor this year's Super Bowl® teams, one being the Los Angeles Rams and the other which shall not be named. You'll use the easiest of methods to produce the most crowd-pleasing, finger-messing 'sticky wings.' The technique simply involves soaking wings in a sweet, spicy marinade, baking them wet, and then tossing them with a finishing glaze.

Warm Mexican Corn Dip

Rating: 4.46 stars
28

This is a delicious, easy, and creamy corn dip. You can adjust the spicy level according to the type of tomatoes with green chile peppers you buy. Serve with tortilla chips.

Milly's Oatmeal Brownies

Rating: 4.63 stars
317

These are wonderful, chewy 'brownies' except that they are made with oatmeal instead of chocolate. Add your favorites (nuts, chocolate chips, chocolate candies, toffee chips) and create a truly delicious snack.
