Appetizers and Snacks

  Happy Saturday Everyone! I hope everyone is enjoying their weekends! Well, we are only a few weeks away from football, both college and professional. I’m sure that besides the game being on everyone’s minds, the food and beer is too. I mean this really is the best part. I think so at least. Today’s …

  Let’s be honest, you can’t really go wrong with chips and salsa. Almost everyone loves the combo, and it’s almost always found at get togethers. I think salsa is great for a tailgate. It’s simple to make. It keeps in the refrigerator for a day or two, so you can make it a day …

  We’re going to continue down our short road of tailgating recipes and whip up a batch of buffalo chicken burgers. Zach and I love buffalo wings. Actually, I don’t even think “love” is strong enough of a word. We are pretty much obsessed with them. The problem with wings, is the fat and unhealthy …

  So I decided to hit 2 birds with 1 stone with this recipe. Per my sister’s request (she’s visiting by the way), cannolis were on the menu. However, I don’t believe cannolis go very well with my theme for the week – “The Best Ever Tailgate Recipes.” Who knows if this dip even belongs …

  We’ve never actually made a fried “wonton” before. Sure, I have had my fair share of all kinds of restaurant-made wontons. I was having some serious mental blockage this week on recipe making. Sometimes this happens, just like anything else. It’s like writer’s block for home cooks. Zach helped me out with this recipe, …

  Mmmmmmm…Ice Pops…Just the sound of “ice pop” gets my heart-a-racing. I’m such a baby when it comes to the darn things. I’ll only buy two off the shelf products out there…Fruttare and Dreyer’s Outshine (or Edy’s if you are on the East coast). Which by the way, this still has yet to make sense …

  Happy International IPA Day everyone! I feel like there is a holiday for everything these days, but this “holiday” is especially awesome because it involves beer and one of my personal favorite brew styles: the IPA. What I love about IPAs are all the sub-categories that go along with them. Good IPAs aren’t too …

  So we’ve been eating mushrooms like two crazy people eating mushrooms, but I’ll get into that in a moment. Stuffed mushrooms are a pretty solid appetizer don’t you think? We think so over here, but I often find that the stuffed mushrooms they serve at most restaurants are super boring. In an attempt to …

  There are few things more satisfying than a really great homemade soft pretzel. After our backpacking trip, I was craving just about everything in the book (that wasn’t Annie’s Mac and Cheese — this is basically what I ate for 3 nights straight). For some odd reason, pretzels came into my mind. I knew, …
