Bowl Appetit: Recipes For A Super Soiree

It’s not just a game, it’s a party. The Super Bowl is an excellent excuse for a party—invite your friends and his, splitting the guest list between those who are both pro and con football. If you’re into the game, hoot and holler with the other fans; if not, there’ll be lots of other guests. Traditional Super Bowl fare consists of beer, burgers and pizza. This year, expand the menu with the following upgrades to the usual menu: Seven Layer Taco Dip Prep Time: 30 Min Ready In: 30 Min INGREDIENTS 1 (1 ounce) package taco seasoning mix 1 (16 ounce) can refried beans 1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened 1 (16 ounce) container sour cream 1 (16 ounce) jar salsa 1 large tomato, chopped 1 green bell pepper, chopped 1 bunch chopped green onions 1 small head iceberg lettuce, shredded 1 (6 ounce) can sliced black olives, drained 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese DIRECTIONS

Girl Vs. Guy Hot: Whom Do You Dress For?

Girl Vs. Guy Hot: Whom Do You Dress For?

Foxy or frumpy? Men and women have different takes on what's hot and what's not in fashion. The surprise? Fashion choices may be biologically-based. Maureen Dempsy investigates. "Guy-hot vs. Girl-hot. Surely you've heard the terms. You could probably point them out on a busy sidewalk. And for purely mass-categorical purposes (warning: stereotype approaching), I'll define the polarity by saying that women fall into one of two subsets: Jessica Simpson? Guy-hot. But Kirsten Dunst? Girl-hot. Done. Kirsten looks adorable all the time, while Jessica perpetually appears as if she's posing for Maxim—in my opinion. But what makes us one way or the other? And are women who dress to impress other women at a disadvantage?. Here's part of the answer: a recent UCLA/University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire study found that women dress more provocatively during ovulation. The study's authors noted that ovulating women wore skirts rather than pants, showed more skin, and, in general, dressed more fashionably."
