This weekend the National Football League (NFL) is celebrating 50 years. That's 50 years of "I could hear that from here!" tackles, "Did that just happen?!?" plays, "I can't believe it!" tear-inducing losses and "We are the champions!" sweet victories.

But it's not just about the game, or the coaches or the players. What makes the Super Bowl great is the experience of it all, the atmosphere you create when you bring good friends together with great food. That's right, this is a holiday for food, and we've got five new recipes that will show you how to score big this weekend with honey!

So much more than just a sweetener, all-natural honey performs a slew of tasks, making it a true game changer in the kitchen.

As an emulsifier, honey acts as a binder and thickener for sauces, dressings, marinades and dips, making it the ideal ingredient for our Curried Honey-Glazed Chicken Wings and Grilled Chicken Satay with Honey Peanut Sauce.

There is nothing worse than pulling a burger off the grill just to have it be as dry as a hockey puck; well honey can help with that! With its humectant properties, honey helps lock in moisture for the most succulent grilled meats, like our Peppered Asiago Bacon Burger with Honeyed Arugala.

While honey can most definitely be the star of any recipe, it is a VIP because of the supporting role it plays, balancing the flavors of other ingredients, making it ideal for sweet & spicy dishes this like Chipotle-Mango Salsa. Honey also helps mask bitter notes in beverages like our Honey Shandy.

No matter the occasion, you can be sure that honey will take it to the house and have you scoring big.
