Kansas City Style Tailgating

Wanna tailgate? Make it fun and create a theme!

Here’s one of my faves:  Kansas City style tailgating.

What does that mean? All food is – what else? – KC style!

Start with some Kansas City strip steaks (seasoned with a Kansas City rub).

Or, perhaps some KC cheesesteaks. What makes these different than Philly cheesesteaks, you ask? Well, they’re from Kansas City, of course!

Add some pit beans – Kansas City style – and you’ve got a rootin’ tootin’ KC-themed tailgate party.

Have a blast playing off this theme and create your own to play with.

It’s tailgate season, friends, let’s do it up right!

Summertime Salmon



Seafood is a delicious summer treat.

And since we only have one more weekend of this beautiful season, why not try some light and tasty salmon recipes?

This sweet chili salmon (above) I absolutely LOVE! It’s marinated in the goodness of a sweet chili sauce for that just right flavor combo.

Wanna dip your salmon in something tasty? Try this outstanding tartar sauce recipe. It’ll knock your socks off!

You can also walk on the wild side and try a trio of seafood favorites – all at the same time: salmon, jumbo shrimp and crabcakes. It’s a seafood smorgasbord!

Soak in the flavors of summer this weekend, friends, it’s the last of the year!!!
