Football, fun, and food – my favorite things about Fall! And one of the best features in my newest cookbook, Kitchen 101: Secrets to Cooking Confidence – hot off the press, is the Ready-Made Menus chapter. The Sports Spread menu is my go-to list of recipes to whip up easily for any sports party – especially LSU football! At home or on-campus tailgating, these mouth-watering appetizers will be your crowd-pleasers too! Ham and Cheese Sliders are and updated delicious twist on a classic. Best of all you can make ahead, keep in refrigerator or freezer and add poppy seed sauce when ready to bake. And I have to have something sweet and Ooey Gooey Squares will melt in your mouth – are all-time favorite! You’ll love all my easy recipes!
