New Year's & Gameday Recipes In Good Taste

I stumbled upon a fun blog and fantastic recipe resource, In Good Taste by Maris Callahan.  


It is a food blog targeted toward young professionals with contemporary and delicious food ideas.  Gameday Style is especially intrigued by Ms. Callahan's comprehensive guide to gameday recipes.  She confesses to not being a big football fan, but is a big fan of the food involved.  That's just fine...she loves gameday food and parties so she has some gameday style!  While she visits the occasional tailgate, the mainstay of her football partying occurs in homes.  I felt it highly applicable to include her collection of recipes to serve you for any casual at-home New Year's parties and gameday parties you might be attending or hosting.  

Here is the link to the guide...


And here are a few of my favorite recipes from it...

A modern take on snack mix, using brown butter and garlic.  Maris found this at http://sarahscucinabella.com/2010/03/11/brown-butter-garlic-snack-mix-recipe/

My husband and I love recipes that use brown (also called browned) butter.  If you haven't tried brown butter, you really need to.  Our favorite way to use it was for making Brown Butter-Sage sauce for pasta, until now.  This snack mix is a majorly different twist for using brown butter!  Read on for Maris' own recipe for using brown butter...in brownies!

You will LOVE these special brownies.
(I made mine with toasted pecans.)



I have been contemplating working really hard to document what I put in my chili.  The problem is is that I make it differently every time.  We really like Mexican mole (sauce) at our house and I do my best to replicate that flavor in my chili.  To do that,  I always add some dark beer and dark chocolate.  Maris has shared a chili recipe from Aggie's Kitchen  and after reading the long list of ingredients, it is most similar to the kind of chili we like at our house.  Don't be intimidated by the long list...it is all so very worth it.  I love Aggie's addition of grilled corn.

Happy Gameday

Snack on the Stadium

With bowl week upon us, I felt it "important" to re-publish October's Snack Stadiums post.  Snack Stadiums strike me as the uber-appropriate addition to a holiday gameday party.  Whip one up in the next couple weeks or start planning for a Super Bowl Snack Stadium.  Enjoy!


You are going to love this gallery of football stadiums made of  enough food for the entire party.  Holy Taco gives you the instructions to  create this beauty, complete with the dip field.  Click here for the instructions.



Now this is the time I should let you know that there is an entire website  dedicated to these pieces of edible art/architecture/engineering feat.   www.snackadium.com.  I am not making this up!   Here's what you'll see over there:



The Old Try

The regular season is over and it's time to start thinking about the season (aka bowl season).  Don't forget to check out past Gameday Style posts for more great gift ideas.
First up, is The Old Try.  I purchased this print a few months ago for my home that's trying hard to raise two gentlemen...

The Old Try has some Gameday Style in a subtle, fun and classy way.  Subtle, because you may not know what some of these designs are referring to, unless you're a devoted fan of one of these Southern schools.
