Key matchup

For the Super Bowl and every other football Sunday, kick off your game-watching with this kitschy duo. The hand-painted earthenware set includes a 13-by-10-inch football-field platter and a 10-ounce foot-bowl.

Chip and Dip Set, $29.99, at Kitchen Kapers stores and at www.kitchenkapers.com.

An elegant finish

This fruit tart is a bright slice of sunshine for these dreary winter days, with a generous helping of fresh blueberries, raspberries, pineapple, strawberries and mandarin oranges layered over a vanilla custard on a buttery crust. A perfect pickup, when you're assigned to bring dessert.

Fruit tart, $24, serves 8 to 10, at Wegman's grocery stores.

Spice it up

College friends David Lynch and Ben Smith, of Mechanicsburg, Pa., created the original Torchbearer Sauce to preserve the habañeros growing in their yards. The sauces - with carrots, tomatoes and mandarin oranges - were so popular, they decided to market them. Now there are 10 varieties.

Torchbearer Sauces, $5.39 for 8 ounces, at Pennsylvania Whole Foods Stores.
