    Kickin’ Chicken Salad Recipe #SandersonFarms ad

    I could probably eat chicken salad every day. It’s good, it’s healthy, and it’s easy to make. But as someone likes to bite food that bites me back, traditional chicken salad recipes don’t feed my need for heat.

    VIDEO: Tailgating Tips

    Tailgating is one of our favorite fall activities. There’s something about meandering through large enthusiastic crowds with the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meats permeating the air that guarantees a good time. Even if you’re not particularly a fan of football, the experience is worthy of any bucket list.

    Bacon Wrapped, Chicken Stuffed Jalapeños #SandersonFarms ad

    Tailgating is one of my favorite things to do with Midlife Road Trip. There’s something about the smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and grilled meat that just makes me happy. I am always amazed at the quality and creativity tailgaters are able to exhibit in preparing food in a parking lot or on the quad of a college campus. It’s as though there is a competition among some of the tailgaters that is a serious […]
