For a New York Giants fan, who the heck am I going to root for during the big game on Sunday since both the Patriots and the Eagles are the NYG’s rival? NJ.com interviewed NYG fans, and I guess most will be pulling for the Patriots this year.
My boyfriend is a die-hard Eagles fan (football season is always competitive fun when our teams are playing each other). I’m going to be a supportive girlfriend and root for the Eagles this year. Plus, I always like an underdog win!

25+ Brussels Sprout Recipes (You’ll actually want to eat)

Every day I’m Brusselin’. This round-up of 25+ Brussels sprouts recipes from Registered Dietitians are going to get you to want to eat Brussels sprouts every day.
Poor Brussels sprouts have gotten a bad reputation. When I hear people say that they don’t like Brussels sprouts, my main guess is why they don’t like them, is that they’ve never had them cooked in a delicious way. Just simply steaming Brussels sprouts is blah.
Brussels sprouts are a part of the cruciferous vegetable family. With just a one-cup serving of Brussels sprouts will meet your daily requirement for vitamin C and vitamin K for the day, while also providing plenty of folate, potassium, B vitamins, manganese and loads of other nutrients.
If you are not a fan of Brussels sprouts, I challenge you to give them another try. These delicious recipes from Registered Dietitians will change your mind.

At any type of party there is usually a cheese and cracker platter on the appetizer table.
I love a good cheese and cracker combo, but one of my pet peeves is when the cracker crumbles apart when you take a bite and all the delicious toppings fall off.

Spruced Up Cheese and Crackers: 3 ways, with 3 ingredients each via RDelicious Kitchen @rdkitchenI fell in love with the smoked salmon and cream cheese combo when I was on a cruise awhile ago. Cruises have endless buffets and is the perfect time to try new foods! During that cruise, I had it every morning for breakfast on a bagel. Bagels are not an everyday type of food for me, so a cracker topper is the perfect solution for my craving. Plus, salmon is packed with omega-3 heart healthy fats.

8 Deviled Egg Recipes

Need some new ideas to use up your hard boiled eggs after Easter? Here’s a round up of 8 new deviled egg recipe ideas!

8 Deviled Egg Recipes - RDelicious Kitchen

My family is crazy about our traditions. Easter is one the most competitive holidays in our household. All the cousins have a full blown Easter Egg Hunt which over the course of the past 3 years have turned into quite an event. Mind you, the we are in the age range of 14-27. My Aunt is the commissioner who plans the hunts each year. To keep it interesting, the rules vary.
This year, my aunt really stepped it up a notch. There was a golden egg trophy at steak which grants bragging rights all year.
We used to have the traditional egg hunts, but it wasn’t a fair game since some have a little more athletic edge over others. My aunt is super creative and developed this over the top awesome hunt. You are only allowed to grab one egg at at time. You then bring it to a check point, open your egg and then complete the task inside in order to search for another egg. Some of the tasks are physical challenges like push-ups. Others are brain teasers. Then some are tasks like rolling a hockey puck down the driveway on its side.
2013 was girls vs. boys – Girls won!
2014 was individuals – I won!
2015 was pairs – My sister Stacey and cousin Jake won!
Harrington Easter Egg Hunt
We look forward to Easter every year! Yes, we are SO over the top, but we LOVE it.
Of course we keep the other Easter tradition of dying eggs. With so many of us, what do you do with all those hard boiled eggs?  Are there a bunch of eggs in your refrigerator after this Easter weekend too? Instead of your go-to deviled egg recipes to repurposed your dyed eggs that you made for Easter, try a new recipe from this recipe round-up!
