Fried Sauerkraut Balls

Tailgate Mac-n-Cheese

Here’s my quick take on a traditional mac-n-cheese. For this one I don’t add nutmeg and other little touches I do at home. This recipe scales up or down. Don’t use pre-shredded cheese, just don’t. Read the back of the package and then pick up a block of cheese and do the same. 3 lbs […]

Quick Weeknight Low-fat Pork BBQ Tenderloin

I have been trying out some low carb / low fat recipes the last few weeks. I have been reading through some old Cooking Light books as well as searching the web. Most of the “diet” recipes leave a fair amount to be desired. I have found that picking out some of your old go-to […]

Quick and Easy Flank Steak

This weekend we had some folks over for the Alabama game. I wanted something simple to throw on the grill. As I was breaking out the flank steak I was surprised to hear how many folks thought you had to tenderize, marinate or in general perform some type of voodoo on this cut of meat. […]

Crimson Sunrise Mimosa

These are a little lighter and can even be made with light cranberry juice. Orange Slices for Garnish 1 part cranberry juice, chilled 1 part sparkling wine, chilled […]

Redneck Sushi

This dish was inspired by the Magic City Brewfest. I have added a few of my own touches to the original. People request this dish often. It is a surprising combination of textures and flavors. – 10 corn dogs – 1 package of angle hair slaw (or thin sliced cabbage) – 2 bottles of ginger […]

Alabama vs Ole Miss – 2012

Those 8:30 games just plain ol’ stink!! While they give you lots of time to hang out with friends and enjoy tailgating, well they give you lots of time to tailgate. My feet, knees and back are still letting me know they are not happy. We lucked up with the WX as it could have […]

Alabama vs FAU – 2012

Another home game for the 2012 Crimson Tide is in the books! Saturday started off a little warmer than I thought it was going to be. The sun was pretty brutal early on in the day. Note, bring sunscreen even in September. It cooled off for the evening games and gave us some wonderful weather […]
