She said her husband's grandmother used to make these soft, thick cookies that were not overly sweet, and that they were a favorite of her daughter and husband.

Each week a nutritionist from the University of Maryland Medical Center provides a guest post to The Baltimore Sun's health blog Picture of Health (baltimoresun.com/pictureofhealth), which is reprinted here. This week, Faith Hicks weighs in on Super Bowl food. Imagine a typical Super Bowl party spread: fried chicken wings, meatballs, sour cream and cream cheese dips.
