It’s that time again. Last year I overwhelmed you with a bunch of football food and, well… I’m back to do it again.

I seriously love every single thing on this list. I cannot wait to make stuff JUST BECAUSE it’s football season.

I also believe it’s the season of naps. Is there anything better than falling into a food coma in October with football on all day?

    I remember your list from last year like it was yesterday! And two of my other fave bloggers also posted huge lists today. I literally just read 500 recipe titles between the 3 of you – and I would love it is just a few things appeared in front of me! Your dips always get me. And your drinks. And the desserts :)

    Luv What You Do — September 2, 2013 @ 8:54 am

    OMG! Football, food and naps?! You are speaking to my heart. I had the most amazing mac n cheese with creamed corn yesterday and stalked down the person who made it (in the crockpot) for foot ball season!

    Dan — September 2, 2013 @ 10:15 am

    Awesome list. I’ve made several of these for tailgates last season and everyone loved them. The nice thing is they were still easy to make at the lot, in bad Cleveland weather.

    FYI – the link for bourbon sweet potato bisque accidentally points to the creamy tomato soup.

    Thanks again!

    Angela @ Eat Spin Run Repeat — September 2, 2013 @ 10:43 am

    Well, i’d like some chipotle lime chicken skewers with avocado ranch, some bbq sweet potato fries, and a pumpkin pie milkshake. Actually, make that 2. This list is awesome!

    Amelia — September 2, 2013 @ 6:24 pm

    I’m all over football season like white on rice. ;) This list is incredible! I made sure to save it in my feedly as I am going to aim to make something different (or a few different items) each week to enjoy in front of a game. Food + game + nap= easily going to pack on a few this season. ;) Question is: should I add a ‘workout’ to the above equation or not?

    JLauryn — September 4, 2013 @ 6:03 pm

    I can’t thank you enough. I am stressing…New out of town BF coming to visit and I have to cook on Game Day Sunday for him. Borrowing menu from you!


  37. #
    Heather — September 10, 2013 @ 10:42 am

    For the games on Sunday I made my guy and his friends Buffalo Chicken Ragoons…they FLIPPED OUT! just take your fave buffalo chicken dip recipe, put a decent sized teaspoon in the middle of a wonton wrapper, brush the edges with egg white, seal it up (either fold to make a triangle, or fold all four corners together to make a little purse) and fry in 350 degree oil for 2-3 minutes until golden brown! Serve with blue cheese dressing and wait for the ridiculous compliments to start rolling in!

    Sharon Naylor @ Sharon Naylor Wedding Books — October 4, 2013 @ 6:00 am
