Football Food Recipes

Welcome back football!  If you’re new to my blog then you may not know that I’m a fan of the game.  Yup, I like girly fashion stuff and football.  😉 With the season starting up this week, I thought that I would share some of my favorite food to eat on game days.  Because who doesn’t like pizza and snacks?  Of course, any one of these recipes can be enjoyed any time of the year, not just on a game day.  I’ve even included some never before seen photos.  🙂 Snack food is a must, and I love this Cowboy Caviar.  …

Tuna and Rice Salad

How does one save time getting ready in the morning? Monday through Friday I feel like I’m rushing in the morning to get everything done on time and out the door for the office.  I’ve been driving to the same office for years, but the traffic has gotten worse.  A couple of months ago I decided to reevaluate my morning routine and revise it to get things done early enough to make it to work on time.  The answer is to plan ahead, prepare, prepare, and prepare some more.

When I don’t have much food in the house and I don’t want to go to the grocery store I tend to get creative with what I do have.  I had tomatoes and feta cheese and not much else.  Truth be told, I could have been happy with these tomatoes, feta cheese, olive oil and herbs on top of some toast for a snack.  However, I remembered that I had some polenta hidden in the back of the cupboard.  Suddenly …
