Tailgate practice: Rice Krispie Treats

Folks, the summer turns into football season at our house about the end of July.  I always have to have my game on all summer long in thinking about future tailgates, player dinners and September/October/November houseguests.  So-- recipes I make for summer treats are always translatable to the busy football season in our coaching family.  If any of you know a college football coach, this is sacred time-there are just a few weeks every year he can travel with his family.  That time is now and if you look around the beaches, there are some football coaches vacationing. (smile!)

We are just finishing up our stint at the beach.  We were lucky to have family join us part of the time and they brought Rice Krispie Treats...what a great beach snack.  Great beach snack = great tailgate snack.  I started looking online for some Rice Krispie Treat recipes and found this mouth waterer via the blogger, Ally Garner, of Copacetic in Carolina's Pinterest board.

You'll find them at Cookies and Cups.  They have the amazing recipe along with some gorgeous photographs to tell you how to make them.

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.
