Why is summer so short, but football season goes on forever. There are a lot of things about football that I don’t understand….. like why does my husband need to watch games that he doesn’t really care about the teams? Why do the players constantly smack each other on the butts?

Why do the games need to screw up my DVR’d shows when they run into over time? What the heck is the obsession with fantasy football? And why in the world does my husband need to leave for a football game 5 hours before it starts? The last one I actually know the answer to…. for the tailgate!

This is one part of football that I do get….. the food. So while I cannot get excited about the hundreds of hours of football games that will be shown on my TVs this season, I can get excited about the food!! Here are some fun tailgating recipes that will be sure not to disappoint!

  1. Thanks so much for linking to the monster cookie dough dip recipe from my blog.

    I have been blogging since 2006 and in fact run a weekly learn to blog hangout on google+ – I must say I am 100% floored by the amount of traffic a brand new site is already generating! Of course, I started “stalking” you to see why a site this new was already getting so much traffic.

    The only explanation I could find is the fact that you have around 3 1/2 million pinterest followers!

    So, I am reaching out to you today to see if you would be interested in coming on our weekly hangout to discuss how we can grow our pinterest and leverage it to get even a smidgen of the traffic that you are getting.

    I hope to hear from you soon! Kelli (at) 3boysandadog (dot) com
