This column is ending, but these Magic Bars and apple cake will see you through the winter.
Hello, loves. Since this will be my last Sunday Night Supper column, I thought I’d go out with a bang. I love to cook, but I love to bake even more, and what I love the most is when someone shares a recipe that she (or he) really loves and this new dish turns out to be shockingly spectacular. This happened New Year’s weekend. Every year since Y2K, we've been going to my brother's house in Montclair for New Year's. It's always a heady crowd, literally and figuratively. My sister-in-law Nancy is a psychologist. She has two sisters. One is a high-powered TV executive who is married to a psychoanalyst. Another sister, a law professor, used to be married to a psychiatrist and is now married to a physics professor. My sister-in-law's mother …

Cedar Grove residents enjoying Super Bowl XLVI festivities in Indianapolis.
We just received this picture of Cedar Grove Councilman Joseph Chiusolo with P.J. Caggiano, co-owner of P.J. Rufo's Restaurant in Woodland Park, and his son, Christopher, right on the edge of the field at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Chiusolo said the atmopsphere at the stadium, now only a few hours from kick-off, is electric, and threw his support behind Big Blue. "The Giants' fans here are outnumbering the Patriots' Fans, and there's a great turnout of red, white and blue colors in the stadium It's a great day to be an American regardless of who wins. Go Giants!"

Even if you don't pay attention to every play, the Super Bowl provides an opportunity to chow down.
A few weeks ago, I was digging into a plate of Buffalo wings at Bunny's in South Orange. We had gone there to watch a Steelers game with our neighbors, one of whom is from Pittsburgh. I'll admit I had my back to the TV and was far more interested in the food than the football. I don't care much about football, though I've spent most of my life living near and with people who do. Bunny's deep fried Buffalo wings are really good, one of the restaurant's top sellers, along with the pizza and garlic salad. Sadly, I had to bolt those wings down and leave some behind to go pay a shiva call. I spent the next few days craving wings and decided I'd use Super Bowl LXVI as an excuse to make them– not that I was actually planning to watch all that …
