    After fattening myself up over the holidays, one of my perennial new year’s resolutions is to eat a healthier diet. I usually do pretty well sticking to it until the Super Bowl rolls around. I inevitably find myself at a party, watching the game, and succumbing to peer pressure by indulging in pizza, beer, whoopee pies, and football shaped Cocoa Krispies treats. For the last several months I have been on a self imposed low-carb […]

  • VIDEO: Tailgating Tips

    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.

    We met some incredible people, tasted some amazing food, and picked up some great tailgating tips before a college football game at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa.
