Prosecco Battered Onion Rings
Most people have had (or at least heard) of beer batter. Commonly used for deep frying fish, shrimp, chicken and onion rings, beer batter uses beer for its flavor as well as its carbonation, which adds body and lightness. This recipe uses prosecco in place of beer for a batter that is even lighter that one made using beer. Think of it as an Italian tempura batter, light, crisp and delicious. Pair these onion rings with a nice chilled glass of prosecco for the ultimate onion ring experience.To read about the 10 Best Onion Rings in America, click here.

The additional accoutrements that I serve with my Kobe Bad Ass Dog is what makes it so special. My onion jam adds a great depth flavor to a usually boring ketchup-and-mustard hot dog, and my angry onions are the perfect crunch.

That tangy sauce you get to dunk your fries and chicken nuggets into has to be great with other things besides fried foods, right? We thought so, and so we tossed it with some string beans and added an extra crunch with another fast-food favorite, Burger King Onion Rings.

Lydia Shire, the esteemed Boston-based chef whose Scampo and Towne Stove & Spirits are two of Beantown's best and most original restaurants, loves NFL football as much as she loves full-flavored food. "Yesterday was the start of NFL Wild Card Weekend," she wrote to me in early January. "You know what a fan I am. I took yesterday off to watch and cooked something I probably have not cooked in 25 years — MEATLOAF!!! Yes, I was craving meatloaf (no fancy restaurant food here). It was so damn good. I wrote out the recipe for friends who came over." With little prodding, Shire agreed to share it with us. If you're looking for something a little more complex (and unexpected) than chili and wings for your Super Bowl viewing party — or if you just like good meatloaf, any time at all — you'll love Shire's take on this American classic.

Salsa is one of those condiments people just automatically think to buy at the store, but everyone should know that it's fairly easy — and healthier — to make your own at home. Rick Bayless' is described as mellow, but can be spiced up with the addition of more chiles or red pepper flakes. It goes great on top of his Swiss Chard Tacos.
