Game Day Noshing: Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Dip

cheeseburger_dip_0246

A year ago 2.5 miles was the hardest thing in the world. Pedaling up the hills and over the terrain would leave me heaving for air and disgusting with sweat. It was gross and I hated it. Finding the motivation to pick up the bike and ride was tough, but I was far too stubborn to be left behind while Handsome was out having such a good time. I will never forget one of our first rides. Every time I climbed one hill, I would look up and see rolling fields with only steeper hills in front of me. My […]

Chicken, Bacon, and Cheddar Sandwiches

Can a girl get hells yeah on that melty gooey cheesiness?  One thing I have never done that I would like to kick off the bucket list is hard core tailgating. Hell, ‘hardcore’? I’ve never even tailgated at all. But it does look like my kind of gig. Tons of people, tons of food and a friendly atmosphere. Yeah, I could feed me some strangers. My father is one of those guys who would be great at it and draw a crowd from miles around if he ever brought his little Webber to the park and set up. He has one of […]

Tequila Chicken Sandwiches

Tequila chicken sandwich. What about a name like that doesn’t make you want to shove a small child out of the way for a serving? Besides, it has tequila in it, a kid should clearly not be in that line. Gotta look out for the little guys, right? And if we are talking football food, which we have been, all week long (really, there’s a theme going and everything), this is got it going on. Sweet and spicy peppers peppers, onions, quick pulled rotisserie chicken, melted gooey cheese, and liquor all on a soft bun. Grab a napkin, wrap it […]

Super Bowl Food: Pizza Nachos

pizza_nachos_14

Next weekend is the Super Bowl, where even people like myself who know little about sports, and less about football, gather around the television and are suddenly avid fans. Every year I pick a team, usually based on colors, ‘outfits’, hairstyles (I like the dudes with big bushy long hair that poofs out of the helmet), or something else as equally meaningless, and I root for them, until I get distracted and forget football is even on. Usually socializing or jamming more food in my pie hole, because the other great part to the Super Bowl, besides the commercials, is […]

Football Appetizers: Hoagie Dip

hoagie_dip_8

Are you ready for some football? Good, cuz I’m not. To be honest, I know nothing about football. I only watch one game a year, and sadly since Janet Jackson decided to flash a stadium full of people and several million all age viewers via cable, I can’t even say it’s for the commercials. (Come on! They have not been nearly as amusing as they used to be.) But on that one cold day at some point in 2012, I’ll be into football. I’ll pick a team based on little knowledge of the players, who else is in the room, […]
