Simple And Delicious Football Party Food Recipes
There’s no need to go searching all over the Internet for recipes to make party food fro Sunday's last football game of teh season. There are plenty of crowd-pleasing recipes right here that you can make with ingredients that you trust. Thanks to MotherNatureNetwork.com
  • Best Buffalo Wings – One of the event’s most popular foods can be brought in, cold and soggy, from a local pizzeria. Or, you can make amazing Buffalo Chicken Wings at home, including the blue cheese dressing.
  • Jalapeno Poppers – For those how like some heat without the meat, these three-cheese, cumin and shallot filled poppers do the trick.
  • Spicy Toasted Nuts – What is it about the Super Bowl and spicy, hot treats? Maybe it’s because spicy foods go well beer. This quick and easy mixture of nuts and spices takes five minutes to throw together and 20 minutes in the oven with a few stirs.
  • Roasted Red Pepper Hummus – A decade or so ago, might have seemed like an odd choice for many Super Bowl parties. This Mediterranean spread has become mainstream, and everyone loves it as a dip for veggies, crackers and chips. It’s so versatile, too. (If Roasted Red Pepper doesn’t strike your fancy, try Black Garlic Caramelized Onion Hummus or Roasted Red Beet Hummus or Pumpkin Rosemary Hummus.)
  • Slow Cooker Black Bean Chili – A simple basic beef and bean chili where you control the heat. Serve with grated cheese and some sour cream.
  • Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili – A no-meat version of chili with pumpkin (or other squash), turnips, corn and beans.
  • Guacamole – This basic guacamole will go quickly, so you might want to double it for a big crowd.
  • Pizza Dough – If you make your own, this dough is chewy and flavorful. Spread with a family’s favorite, homemade pizza sauce and add the toppings of your choice.
  • Ranch dressing and dip – Don’t buy bottled. This recipe can be thinned out for dressing or thickened for a dip and has none of the sugary, chemically taste that store-bought dips can have.

Check Your Bank Statement For a Charge Of $9.84
The Better Business Bureau has put out a national alert to consumers to be on the lookout for any recent charge for $9.84 on their credit or debit card, warning that it could be fraud. A worldwide scam has been discovered in which stolen cards are being used to make small charges in that amount that could easily be missed, attributed to websites with names like EETsac.com, CEWcs.com and EduAcc.in that claim to support customer services. It's not yet clear how widespread the scam is and when the credit card numbers were stolen.

Spanx Hazardous To Your Health?
According to gastroenterologist Dr. John Kuemmerle, dermatologist Dr. Maryann Mikhail and chiropractor Dr. Karen Erickson, Spanx can lead to health issues. The shapewear compresses your stomach, intestine and colon which can worsen acid reflux and heartburn as well as provoke erosive esophagitis. It can also cause blot clots due to decreased circulation or numbness, tingling and pain in your legs when sitting because it compresses a nerve in your thigh. This can come and go but it could become constant. Dr. Erickson noted that posture can also be affected because instead of using your muscles to hold yourself up, the Spanx can become a crutch to avoid using those muscles.

Beware Of Free Credit Monitoring Scam
If you got an email from Target last week about the store's recent mega security breach, be careful. Target did indeed send out emails offering customers one year of free credit monitoring, but scammers are also on the prowl and are sending out similar emails. Target says it has identified and stopped at least 12 scams preying on customers via email, Facebook and other ways. To make sure the email you received from Target is legitimate, check out what it should look like here: http://tgt.biz/1hfzkTl . If your email doesn't match you should not click any links on it or give any personal information. Security experts warn that if your data was compromised in the data breach it's not just Target that customers needs to worry about, but also scammers posing as other retailers or even the IRS.

Marryoke Making Its Way To A Wedding Near You
Traditional wedding videos may be on the way out as couples have started making videos of them lip syncing to pop hits instead, and it’s being called “marryoke.” In this type of video, the bride and groom and their guests all get to star in their own pop video, in which they lip-sync along to their chosen song. The footage is all cleverly edited together to include all of the traditional moments of a wedding day. A husband and wife team set up their company at Marryokes.com three years ago, and says they travel the world shooting these music videos for clients. The couple says clients seem to like it because it’s unique and different and because people like having something to post on social media that will get attention. (Daily Mail)

Older Brains Slower Due To So Much Knowledge
Scientists believe that older people take longer to remember things not because of mental decline, but because they have more information in their brains to sort through, Britain's Telegraph reports. German researchers programmed a computer to read a certain amount each day and learn new words and commands. When they let the computer take in only so much, its performance on cognitive tests resembled that of a young adult. But when the same computer with the same processing capacity was exposed to the experiences we might have over a lifetime, its performance was like that of an older adult.

Internet Connected Toothbrush
A new product unveiled Sunday (January 5th) at a preview event for the annual Consumer Electronics Show exemplifies just how much the online world is becoming ever more deeply involved in even the most mundane parts of our daily lives -- the Internet-connected toothbrush. Created by French-based startup Kolibree, the Kolibree toothbrush includes a sensor that detects how much tartar is being removed from the teeth in each brushing. It also records brushing activity so there's consistent cleaning each time it's used. The toothbrush sends the information wirelessly to a smartphone app, which can tell users if they've missed hard-to-clean areas or aren't getting a thorough brushing. The creators say it could also be particularly useful for parents who want to check on how good of a brushing job their small children are doing.

How To Make A Great Online Dating Profile
If you're looking for love online in 2014, post a full body profile picture a new study finds what your profile should have. The study looked at more than four-thousand online daters and found that a full-body image will boost both sexes' messages by an average of 203-percent. When a women's photo was taken indoors she received 60-percent more messages, while men received 19-percent more messages if their photo was taken outside. Posting photos with pets in them is not a good idea, and reduced women's popularity by 53-percent and men's by 42-percent. Also, honesty is usually the best policy as men who mentioned divorces and separations in their profiles got 52-percent more messages, and if they mentioned a son or daughter they got a seven-percent boost. However, women should not be so honest, mentioning children got them a seven-percent dip in messages received. Additionally, keeping it short and sweet is best, as users with profiles that were 100 to 200 words received ten-percent more messages than those with longer profiles. (Daily Mail)
