Your boyfriend's idea of snacks for the baseball team's annual barbecue reaches only so far as the chip aisle at the grocery store. This does not sit well with you. You're more inclined to dress up his prized saltines with Cracker Smack ($5). Decently spicy, slightly sweet, bursting with flavor, this mix does for boring crackers what baseball pants do for our interest in this great American sport, and it requires you to add nothing more than the obvious crackers and some olive or canola oil. (The recipe calls for one and a half cups, but we made ours with only a cup of olive oil; turned out just fine.) Toss the ingredients in the bag, leave it overnight, and serve with chili, Cilantro-Lime Sour Cream Dip, and some ice-cold craft brew. He'll be amazed and your guests will be eternally thankful.
