Game Day Goodies!

We are known for being huge tailgaters. I am female.  Jon is…not. What this means is – he thinks a meal of meat and meat alone is a meal.  I think we need to have cookies or brownies or, heck, even a SALAD to go with all of the carnivore action. Right?  Just meat?  No.  […]

It’s Football Season…and a Buffalo Wild Wings Giveaway!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Buffalo Wild Wings for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine. In my world, there are but two seasons. Football season, and everything else. Yes, I’m a girl. But there’s something about NCAA football that gets me going. I don’t really care who’s playing (though […]

Chili Infused Bacon Wrapped Scallops {and a Giveaway!}

Scallops. Huge, white, tender. Not much you need to do to a scallop to make it amazing, as long as you are starting with great quality product. Of course, bacon has never met a scallop it couldn’t make better. Place a few succulent sea scallops on a skewer with a fatty piece of smoked bacon? […]

Superbowl Snacks

I swore I wasn’t going to do a Superbowl Snack Round Up. And yet, here I am. Why the change of heart?  Well, my not-so-secret personal reason is – I wanted a place I could come to find them myself, all of my favorites in one location. Greedy and selfish, I know.  But at least […]

Need Superbowl Ideas? Think Avocados!

It seems everyone this week is searching for Tailgating and Superbowl recipes. The truth is, during the game you could just sit out a bowl of Fritos and Sam Adams and call it a night.  Most guys won’t care.  Most women would feel relieved not to have that pressure. But let’s not do that, though. […]

Barbeque Pork and Wonton Nachos

Barbeque Pork. Nachos.  Cheesy, starchy, goodness. Sure, you could have the regular old nachos for your Superbowl party, but imagine serving up a bowl of THIS. Chips made from deep fried wontons, piled high with spicy pork barbeque, tomatoes, cilantro, and a decadent pepperjack cheese sauce. You’ll never look at nachos the same way again. […]

Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese Bites

Tired of seeing Superbowl recipes on all the blogs these days? Look away now, then.  Except, wait.  If you do that, you’ll miss something pretty darned incredible. Deep Fried Macaroni and Cheese Bites. Crazy, I know.  But think about it.  Macaroni and Cheese is SO good.  And fried food?  Also good.  Combined?  Well, awesomeness.  In […]

The Devil’s in the Beam Cupcakes

Time to bring out the Kentucky Bourbon again!  For this round of tailgating with Jim Beam, I went the sweet route…because there is always room for dessert!  It seems that people flock to the tailgates where the cookies, brownies, and cakes are lined up (well, at least I do) – so try incorporating this recipe […]

Tailgating with Beam & Bird Kabobs

Happy Monday, everyone!  I hope you had  fantastic weekend.  Here, the weather was gorgeous, unseasonably warm, sunny skies, and the smell of Hokie Football was in the air!  It worked out for us that we could take Seven to the game, so of course, he had a great time. (That is, after we bought lemonade […]
