By: The SacFoodies For us at SacFoodies, comparing and contrasting the meals we make and eat tends to happen quite a bit, especially around the holidays.

March Madness Munchies

by

So, you can’t catch a flight to see the NCAA games up close and personal at one of the venues across the country, but you’ll be watching in the comfort of your own faux leather recliner – your bracket clutched tightly in one hand, an ice-cold beverage in the other. Why not up the ante, […]

Small Bites for the Big Game

by

If you’re planning your Big Game snacking menu, here’s a healthy take on onion rings that doesn’t sacrifice flavor.
