You and I know that cocktails are an essential part the game day party. There’s nothing like tasty pre-game adult beverages to get everyone amped up for gridiron action…and trash talking. Of course you could serve old faithful, beer but, why not step up your game with these game day cocktails.

The Alabama Slammer

I roll with The Tide so of course, the Slammer is on my list. According to legend,  this colorful cocktail was first shaken at the University of Alabama in 1975 and is said to be the signature drink of the Alabama Crimson Tide football team.

game day appetizers

Finally, we’re getting a little break from the sweltering heat! The weather is getting a little cooler and there’s even a gentle breeze on some evenings. These are hints that my favorite time of year is here. Of course, I’m talking about football season! I was born and raised here in Alabama where football is a way of life – especially college football. We’re fanatical about “our team.”  People schedule life events like vacations, weddings, and probably even the birth of children around the college football schedule. Every Saturday for the next few months, will consist of family, friends, football and FOOD.  Just in time for kickoff of the SEC football season, I’m sharing a few simple, but tasty Game Day appetizers for your tailgate party.

Christmas Songs That Will Cure the Bah Humbugs

Christmas Songs

There’s something pretty amazing about Christmas songs and their ability to instantly lift your spirits. Like the times when i’m annoyed by the holiday shopping traffic and on the verge of hurling expletives at the car in front of me. Then “Gee Whiz (It’s Christmas)” or “This Christmas” comes on the radio. And just like that I’m singing along and the traffic jam’s not so bad. That is the precise reason why I love Christmas music — it somehow manages to cure even the worse cases of the bah humbugs.  Do you know a Scrooge that may need a little help getting into the Christmas spirit? Are you that Scrooge? Add 10 of my favorite Christmas songs to your iPod.

Because I seize every opportunity to make any and every thing just a little prettier, Thanksgiving leftovers are no exception. I’ve discovered a way to send your guests home with Thanksgiving leftovers that look good and taste good.

Hostess Gifts That Will Get You Invited Back

Hostess Gifts

Most people that know me would describe me as a “modern woman.” I own every Apple product, I’m a Google-holic, I do all of my holiday shopping via Amazon and most times, i’d rather text than talk on the phone. However, i’m still an old-fashioned Southern girl in many ways. I believe in proper table manners (ELBOWS OFF THE TABLE!), I still hand write thank you notes, and I think social grace and etiquette is a must. If you’re planning  to visit friends or family for the weekend or you plan to attend any holiday parties, don’t show up empty-handed. A small gift is the perfect way to thank your hostess for the invite and their hospitality. Check out these unique hostess gifts that will get you invited back.
