If you ask me…its about to be the most wonderful time of the year! Cooler air will soon be blowing in, leaves will start to change, the high school bands will be heard across the city on Friday nights, and the VOLS will take the field for what many hope to be the year of redemption! In honor of that, I am posting a few easy recipes for your football tailgates or parties at your pad.
