Happy Tailgating

Now that football season is well on its way, I’m always looking for a new recipe to take to fall/tailgate parties.  Convenience is priority, if you can prepare the dish ahead of time it’s a definite winner.  The recipes I chose are many of the standard tailgate dishes but with a twist to spice things up.  The ingredients are listed, just click the pictures for the recipe instructions.  I have also found a few fun gift ideas for your favorite fan, the shopping season is almost upon us, yikes!
