Who's Ready for Football?
Football season officially started yesterday but we consider Sunday to be the big day. Even if you hate football, it's a good excuse to stuff your face with delicious snacks. Try your hand at these Cocoa Krispie Football Treats, shake up a batch of Cajun Spiced Roasted Garbanzo Beans, or get wrapped up with these Bacon Wrapped Jalapeno Poppers. Touchdown!
