Fall & Football

The two most anticipated times of year have finally arrived: fall weather and football season – unless you live in Mississippi and you’re just experiencing the second season of summer.

Football is known to bring fans across the country together (or in some cases, tear them apart). One of my favorite traditions is tailgating, for obvious reasons. I love food. All food.

If you are tailgating anytime soon – and I hope you are – you will more than likely bring food along for your friends to enjoy. Today, I’m sharing two fall-inspired tailgating recipes that I really enjoy. I hope you do, too!


AUTUMN SANGRIA: (from The Gingered Whisk)
• One bottle of Pinot Grigio (I like Villa Pozzi)

• Four cups of fresh apple cider

• One apple (cored and chopped)

• One pear (cored and chopped)

• Three cinnamon sticks

• Half a cup of Brandy

• One cup of club soda

• Half a cup of fresh cranberries

Combine all ingredients and let sit in the refrigerator for a minimum of four hours. Before you serve it, add the club soda.


Now, with all that alcohol, snacks are needed. One of my favorite, jaw-dropping treats is Salted Pretzel Marshmallow Bars (shoutout to Food Network for coming in clutch with this one).

I have attached the link to the recipe for this one, because it is a little lengthy, but SO WORTH IT. Plus, they’re really cute.


I’ll keep you guys posted on how tailgating in the deep, hot south goes. Hope you all enjoy the sangria and the tailgating appetizers. I know I will!
