As many of you already know, when I'm watching movies, my eye is constantly trained on the interiors and exteriors to see what ideas I can borrow or adapt for CasaSugar readers. So, since we're heading into a long holiday weekend here in the US, I figured that I should entertain you with some all-American movies whose exteriors inspire me.
Every year during the Super Bowl, guacamole is so popular that on game day alone, Americans consume approximately 50 million pounds of avocados. This year's big Sunday should be no exception, and I'll be taking advantage — particularly with avocado prices predicted to rise this Spring.
Here, I've found two recipes. The first is a classic rendition of the green dip served with chips. However, If you're looking for something more bite-sized (and a healthy alternative to chips), turn to the advanced recipe. It harks back to the 1960s, when it was popular to serve guacamole in tomatoes. To see both recipes, read more
From pickled jalapeños to chipotle chile chocolate bars, I love spicy food, but if I were forced to pick a favorite, I'd have to go with spicy buffalo chicken. Not only is it the ultimate comfort food, but the tender chicken is also crispy, zippy, and tangy all at once.
Whether you're looking for the perfect Super Bowl party platter or you simply want something to fulfill your quest for spice, look no further than these buffalo chicken recipes.
The first, made with breast tenders and breaded for crunchiness, is a simplified version of the classic buffalo wing. Alternately, pull out your frying pan and try your
wing hand at a traditional recipe for buffalo chicken. Both are definite crowd pleasers.

All I've craved since the holidays are my favorite childhood comfort foods, but I'm trying to eat healthy, nutritious, wholesome foods. That's why turkey meatloaf is perfect for this month — it's the best of both worlds. Although meatloaf made with ground beef isn't horrible for you, these recipes, which call for lean, ground, all-breast turkey meat, are even better.
The first recipe, a low-maintenance standby, is perfect for the casual cook. If you want to take your American comfort food to another level, however, opt for the second recipe. It elevates meatloaf with a roasted red pepper sauce, as well as vegetables that are sautéed before they're mixed in for extra tenderness. See both versions when you read more
