There’s finally a crisp chill in the air in the mornings and the leaves are starting to turn, so you know what that means: fall is officially here!

It’s time to curl up with a slice of pumpkin bread, make a batch of slow cooker apple butter, and shop online for new sweaters.

It’s also tailgating season, and while I am not out here tailgating on a regular basis, I know a lot of people who are and they’re always looking for fun game-day foods.

Luckily, one of our new weeknight meals is also a perfect game-day snack. These meatball sliders are my newest slider recipe and are perfect for all the meatball sub fans out there.

How can you say no to a cauliflower dressed so fancy?

When it looks this fabulous on your dinner table, it gets devoured. I promise. 

whole roasted buffalo cauliflower

I’m always searching for delicious game day snacks that I can make for a crowd, so say hello to this whole roasted cauliflower. Drenched in buffalo wing sauce, covered in fresh herbs and scallions, sprinkled with crumbly blue cheese, it is a buffalo lover’s dream. 

Crunchy, charred cauliflower that tastes extra roasty and fabulous. I can’t get enough!

I’ve made whole roasted cauliflower many times at home – I’ve shared my whole cauliflower with fondue here and I love it for the holiday season. 

But this buffalo wing version may be my absolute favorite. It has all the flavors that I love so much, it’s crunchy, spicy, creamy and refreshing from the herbs. Plus, it can serve a bunch of people!

Okay and it’s nooooo secret that I love buffalo cauliflower anything. I’ve done a crispy buffalo cauliflower. Buffalo cauliflower lettuce cups which may be my all-time favorite. Roasted buffalo cauliflower flatbread, originally in The Pretty Dish. Even buffalo cauliflower soup!

I cannot be out-buffaloed when it comes to cauliflower. I adore it. 

There is no stopping me and now that it’s officially football season, I feel very validated in my buffalo wing love. 

pouring buffalo sauce on whole cauliflower

Anyway! Let’s make this cauliflower.

whole roasted buffalo cauliflower

I use a big cast iron skillet since it gets and stays HOT.  And I like lots of seasonings; think salt, pepper, smoked paprika and garlic powder. 

I cover the entire thing in foil and then roast it like that for a bit. Then I remove the foil and finish it off. Roasting a whole cauliflower does take awhile – around an hour or so. But it’s all hands off time. Throw it in the oven and go fold some laundry! Or binge netflix. Whatever.

Next up, the toppings. When the cauliflower is finished, I drizzle buffalo wing sauce all over it. My favorite is the frank’s buffalo wing version – but you can use whatever you love.

Then I like to sprinkle on crumbled blue cheese. I try to add this on while it’s still warm so it gets soft and melty. The BEST!

Finally, herbs and scallions. Give it a shower of fresh chives, cilantro, green onions and even more herbs if you wish. 

Then slice and serve!

Oh this is SO flavorful, so roasted and tender but with a crispy topping. 

It’s fun to serve, everyone loves it. You can serve it right on a plate for people to enjoy –  or use it as a taco or wrap filling, throw it on a salad and more. Options are endless with something this delish. (more…)

It is one of my go-to snacks that everybody loves. 

This jarlsberg cheese dip is the perfect game-day or weekend snack. You can make it ahead of time (it gets better as it sits!) and it’s super easy to transport with a bag of crackers, pretzels or chips. 

grated swiss cheese

Remember when I first shared my chilled queso a few weeks ago? And I told you that I had another similar dip to share come football season?

Well, here we are!

This dip is creamy, more mild than the chilled queso, but still creamy and cheesy and all around delicious. 

jarlsberg dip ingredients

Jarlsberg cheese is a swiss cheese that is so soft and buttery and wonderful. It’s amazing on its own but it also melts so nicely. Since the cheese is soft, it works so well in this chilled spread. It’s very much like my pimento cheese too. You grate the cheese (I prefer larger shreds for this) and mix it with everything else, then it hangs out in the fridge. It’s basically a swiss version of said pimento cheese.

After a few hours, this is MAGIC.

making jarlsberg cheese dip

Much like the chilled queso, the jarlsberg dip doesn’t look like much. In fact, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve walked by the grocery store version of this. Like, so many times in my life. 

But then!

My sister-in-law started buying it from Heinen’s and always having it out as a snack or app and we all just about died. It is so creamy. So cheesy. An incredible spread on crackers or dip for pretzels. Seriously, it is fantastic and I don’t know one person who doesn’t enjoy it. 

Once she started serving it, I realized that my grandma also used to buy this and serve it. It tasted so familiar and nostalgic to me but I couldn’t place it. Then my mom and I realized that we’d had it ages ago. Let’s just say we are thrilled to have it back in our life and making it at home is so easy, simple and tastes fantastic.

It’s true: this is very very easy. Embarrassingly easy. Those are the best kind of party appetizers. 

You mix everything together and that’s it. Chill it in the fridge, then serve. This is perfect for tailgating, game-day parties, holidays and just any gathering in general. 

Also, it’s absolutely amazing on a burger (like my pimento cheese burgers) and melts LIKE A DREAM. (more…)

I think that as soon as you become a parent, you become an expert on so-called “kid foods.” 

You know, the typical stuff you’d find on kids’ menus at restaurants: mac and cheese, spaghetti, cheeseburgers, and chicken tenders.

But any adult who pretends not to enjoy those things is kidding themselves, ok?

I love one-pot mac and cheese, one-pot spaghetti, cheeseburger sliders, and these air fryer chicken tenders just as much as my kid does!

So whether you’re making them for your kids or for yourself, this is a recipe everyone will love. Trust me on this one.

If you’re looking for an easy appetizer to bring to a party or BBQ this weekend, this corn dip is exactly what you need. It’s super simple to make, and, like all the best picnic and cookout recipes, it actually gets better if you make it ahead. …which is really saying something, because this corn dip is insanely delicious to begin with. A creamy, tangy combo of mayo and Greek yogurt coats juicy, smoky grilled corn kernels, jalapeños, and green onions. Lime juice makes it fresh and bright, and big drizzles of hot sauce add an extra kick. Yum, right?! […]

These days, our neighborhood farmers market is basically like a caponata cooking kit. Mounds of eggplants, tomatoes, and multicolored peppers fill every stall. I’m pretty pleased about it, because this Sicilian vegetable stew is one of my favorite late summer dishes. It’s tangy, briny, and lightly sweet, with a rich, silky texture that’s absolutely irresistible. I first fell in love with caponata years ago on a trip to Italy. Jack and I ordered it as an appetizer with crusty bread and a glass of white wine almost everywhere we went. When we got home, of course I had to learn […]

If you ask me, everyone should learn how to make crostini. These little Italian toasts are at home at any party or gathering, and they’re an absolute breeze to make. Thinly slice a baguette, brush the slices with olive oil, and toast them in the oven until they’re crisp and golden. Once they’re toasted, they’re the perfect base for all kinds of toppings.

If you ask me, a mezze platter is the perfect solution for feeding a crowd. This Middle Eastern tradition of serving a medley of appetizers and small plates before a meal (or even as a meal) ensures that there’s always something for everyone. Folks can munch on fresh veggies, salads, bread, cheese, dips, spreads, and more. I love that you can prep every component ahead of time, so if you’re entertaining, you just have to pull the dishes out of the fridge and assemble your mezze platter when your guests are ready to eat. They’ll love sampling all the different […]
