Make your little slice of man heaven--out in front of a stadium, with plenty of food on the table, and a football game in your near future.
Absolutely the best pecan pie ever! What's more Southern than pecan pie? How about one that only takes 5 minutes to prepare?! Pecan pie even a New Yorker can enjoy...
Let's face it. Summer is a time for fun, and some parents don't want to stay in a hot house all day and cook, while some just don't have the time or energy. This is the kind of meal that you just pop in the slow cooker and do whatever you and your family have to do for 6-8 hours. Then just put it in some lettuce wraps and eat! It's easy, fuss-free, and I think it tastes great.
Spicy, crunchy snack, perfect for watching the game.
A wonderful New Orleans-style soup that is a best seller at my family-owned restaurant. Serve with crackers. I like to season my shrimp with 2 tablespoons of Worcestershire, 1 tablespoon of Season All(R), and 2 teaspoons of hot sauce (optional).
They may look like charcoal on a stick when done, but try it before you throw it out. Only a charcoal grill can do these legs justice.
Beans, beef, tomatoes, jalapeno and habanero peppers, onion... whatever sounds good goes in! This makes enough chili to feed an army. I cook it on the stove first, let the flavors mature in the fridge overnight, and then put it in the slow cooker all day while I'm at work.
Warm simple chili that hits the spot during a football game or any other time you really need it.
This a wonderful salad that, by not mixing in the chips, can serve as a dip appetizer. This is always requested for our tailgating parties, and is the first to disappear.
My all-time favorite recipe, which my Dad makes every year on New Years Day for the college Bowl games. I prefer the ham hocks, but you can substitute a ham bone for them. To slice the sausage easier, put it in the freezer for about 20 minutes first. The longer you cook it the creamier the beans get; I love to let it simmer all day, the smell is wonderful. Serve with hot rice.
Most of the recipes I found don't include the ingredients I placed in mine. This is another new recipe I came up with for a chili cook-off. It went just as fast as the Southwestern style chili did and many people enjoyed it, as well. This, also, is meant to be cooked and then sit overnight.
A spicy beef and bean chili that is not for the faint of heart!
A refreshing, tangy coleslaw. This is my best attempt at recreating a popular local restaurant's recipe.
An easy, hearty and flavorful chili. Just combine the ingredients and let it all simmer!
This is a fresh salsa mix that is easy and takes only minutes! Great with chips, or on tacos, in burritos, etc.
Black-eyed peas bring a Southern flair to a Latin favorite.
A delicious steak sandwich recipe that uses an inexpensive cut of meat and turns it into a mouthwatering and richly flavored treat - ideal for tailgate parties.
I am 160lbs and I was first served this recipe at a barbeque. I consumed 5 hotdogs as I could not believe the taste that I was experiencing. I ended up begging for this recipe. It yields a sweet and exceptionally tasty Brat.
These little ham balls are backed in a brown sugar sauce and are always a party favorite. Perfect served as a side dish or to bring to a potluck.
"Uncle" Bo was my dad's college roommate. He created these sandwiches and served them up at Friday night parties before Penn State football games. I found this recipe some years back hidden in my mother's recipe box and decided to make them. They're great now for sitting in front of the big screen watching football-and football season is fast upon us. Make these for your crowd.
