Call me crazy- I am just one of those women who LOVE football! Who knows- my
four older brothers may have forced me to watch football as a child.
Whatever the reason for this obsession, I am definitely a die hard fan!


Call me crazy- I am just one of those women who LOVE football! Who knows- my
four older brothers may have forced me to watch football as a child.
Whatever the reason for this obsession, I am definitely a die hard fan!
Whether it is cheering for the Trojans on Friday night, heading to
Oxford on Saturdays for a day of fun with the Rebels, or spending
Sunday afternoon watching my favorite NFL teams, tailgating with
friends is a way of life for me, as it is for most in the South.
My
other love is cooking. And to be able to combine the two makes this
time of year something that I begin to look forward to as soon as
school starts. I begin to pull out my cookbooks and mark the pages of
what I want to try this season. The cooler the weather, the more I like
to cook. These are a few of my favorites.

Blue Cheese Dip
1 (8-oz) pkg. cream cheese
1/4 C half and half
7 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 clove garlic, crushed
4 oz. blue cheese
2 T. chives
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Beat together cream cheese and half and half. Stir in bacon, garlic, blue cheese and chives. Pour into baking dish. Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes. Serve warm with slices of French bread or Ritz crackers.

Chicken Bites
2 C sour cream and onion potato chips, crushed
1 egg
2 T milk
6 boneless chicken breast filets, cut in 1- 1-1/4 inch cubes
1/3 C butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread crushed potato chips out into a shallow dish. Beat together the egg and milk in a bowl. Dip the chicken cubes into the egg mixture and then dredge them in the chips. Place chicken on a baking sheet and drizzle with melted butter. Bake for 15 to 18 minutes until golden brown.
I serve these with a variety of dipping sauces such as ranch, honey mustard and sweet and sour.

Touchdown Cookies
1 roll chocolate chip cookie dough
1 bag bite size Snickers candy bars
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Press cookie dough on to oblong cookie sheet.
Bake according to package directions. Remove from oven and immediately place candy bars on top of cookies. Allow to melt for a few minutes and spread as you would frosting. Allow to cool and cut into bite size squares.

*You can use different cookie dough and candy bars. For instance, peanut butter cookies and Butterfinger candy bars. These are so good and so easy!!l
