Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Honeycrisp Apple Tartlets”

As the Royals head into their series against the Twins I bring you a dish created from a Minnesota native, the Honeycrisp apple. The Honeycrisp is a hybrid that was created at the University of Minnesota and introduced in 1991. Though young, it has grasped the hearts of many an apple lover with its crisp, sweet-tart bite. To let its natural flavors shine I’ve created a tart with very few ingredients, meanin ...

I Gotta Feeling vs. I Want You to Want Me

The Beatles feel more than fine after narrowly defeating KC and his band of sunshine. Wednesday's matchup probably couldn't pit two more different songs that were released nearly 30 years apart. Only one other Play it Forward matchup features this much of a year gap between the two competing songs. I Gotta Feeling I Want You to Want Me Black Eyed Peas Artist Cheap Trick Black Eyed Peas/David Gueta/Frederic ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Roasted Jalapeno Ranch Dressing”

Sometimes in the midst of too much meat and potatoes it’s nice to offer up a salad to add a touch of green to your party. But a simple side salad doesn’t have to be boring. A homemade dressing goes a long way to add a burst of flavor to a big bowl of lettuce and veggies. This take on buttermilk ranch gets a kick of heat from roasted jalapenos, making it an excellent option to serve alongside any Mexican spr ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Removing Cooking Oil Stains”

It happens to the most careful among us: while frying up something tasty the oil splatters, making it's way around the apron and onto our clothes. We drizzle the olive oil a bit too enthusiastically. A bite into a greasy treat drips onto our shirt. Over and over again I found myself faced with oil stains on my clothes from cooking and eating. Tired of thinking that the clothes were forever ruined I turned t ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Rosemary and Garlic Bean Dip”

With the long, cold winter we’ve had I’ve been on a bean making kick. They are simple to make and oh, so comforting on those bitter evenings. Plus they have so many uses that it’s hard to get bored. Last time I made a batch I froze half, and these leftovers lent me a quick and easy appetizer for a recent gathering. If you don’t happen to have some homemade beans on hand the canned stuff will do the trick. R ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Honey Buttermilk Biscuits”

Despite the trend away from gluten, I’m an advocate of serving up a side of bread with almost every meal. To a large gathering it adds bulk without much cost, and can serve as a base, a sopper, bookends, or utensil depending on what it is paired up with. I came across this particular biscuit recipe in an issue of Saveur Magazine and felt like it needed to have a place on my dinner table that very night. The ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Summer Beer”

Despite the current cold temperatures and threat of snow, March is right around the corner with its promise of incoming spring. Baseball, days in the park, warm breezes, barbeques all are heading our way. To celebrate (and in hopes of bringing it on sooner) I bring you a recipe for Summer Beer. It is a drink we would throw back for hours during the hot months at one of our favorite bars in the Little Apple ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Spicy Dr. Pepper Ribs”

I think the secret to the perfect rib sauce is in layering the flavors. It’s about building upon the foundation, adding piece after piece while not overwhelming it in any one way and toppling the whole thing over. I think I’ve created just the right balance with this one based on Dr. Pepper. There’s spice to counteract the sweetness, mirepoix and rosemary to add depth. One bite and your sticky fingers will ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Apple Hand Pies”

Since finally nailing down a proper dough recipe (thanks to the wonderful Emily Hilliard of Nothing in the House) I have been on a major pie kick these past few months. Though pies are a wonderful treat to serve up to guests at a party, they aren’t the easiest thing to consume at an outdoor tailgate. The solution is to use the dough to create a personal carrying case for the filling. No plate is needed, jus ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Sriracha Caramel Corn”

Here’s hoping your Super Bowl snacks were more exciting than the game last week. We had a few big hits on our table, but the biggest success story came from this sweet, salty, spicy popcorn. It satisfies every craving in one just one bite, but you won’t be able to stop there. We went through a double batch of this with no problems whatsoever. It will be making a regular appearance at any gathering I have in ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Pantry Salsa”

The cold weather and lack of flavorful summer tomatoes is no reason to not serve up homemade salsa at your Super Bowl party this year. Use ingredients you probably already have on hand to create a fresh tasting, bright dip. I’ve changed up the recipe often depending on what I have on hand: subbing a bit of garlic powder for fresh, Tabasco and chili flakes instead of jalapeno, however I recommend using fresh ...

Take “trash” to a delicious new level with these chocolate chip cookies filled with everything but the kitchen sink. What do you have on hand: nuts, popcorn, chips, Chex cereal? Toss it in. The salty sweet combo is sure to please both sides and sooth any differences in opinion. Tr ...

To help you along that vein, I bring you a no-fuss side dish that you can pair up with leftover roast meat or serve beside grilled meats and ve ...

Batter Up and Fry: Tailgating Treats. “Devils on Horseback”

The Chiefs take on the Colts this weekend in what could be a tough game. Since the last two times we’ve taken on some horses didn’t go so well (see: the Broncos games a few weeks ago), I think it’s time we eat beat them down. Perhaps a good place to start is with this appetizer of Devils on Horseback. After whipping up a batch for this weekend’s game, imagine chomping down on the opponent each time you thro ...
