Touchdown Thursdays: Apple Pie Egg Rolls

It’s been a long held belief of mine that hand pies would be the next big thing to hit the food truck craze.  They’re small, they’re cute, they’re portable, they’re easily adapted for the sweet or savory lover.

They also conjure images of Patti Lupone stuffing them with humans… but I digress.

Touchdown Thursdays: Greek Dip

We did it.  We survived the first week of the 2012 football season.  RG3 made a lot of people in my parts remember why they ever signed on for Skins fandom.  Peyton made me remember why I love him so, even in that terrible orange jersey.

And stomachs all across this great land cried out for Tums, and a week of rest.

With that thought in mind… on to the dip!

Tequila Lime Grilled Fruit Salsa

Let’s see how many of my favorite things we can fit into one recipe, shall we – grilling, mangoes, cilantro, and booze in food?!  What do you get, the most delicious salsa to ride the chip express.

It’s sweet, it’s smoky, it’s awesome!  Grilling the mangoes, pineapple and red pepper take their already perfect flavor and bump them up a notch.  Sweetness hooks up with char and smoke and does a little happy dance.  This salsa was fantastic with chips (I’m obsessed with Terra), but would also be delicious over white fish, chicken or pork.

Touchdown Thursdays: Wings Two Ways

Wings are an integral part of the football watching experience, and since there are two games this weekend, and two teams emerging victorious and heading to the big dance, it’s so obvious that you need two wing recipes for Conference Championship Sunday.

I’m hoping the Super Bowl means the 49ers and Ravens are throwing down, but that’s neither here nor there – ON TO THE WINGS!

Touchdown Thursdays: Curried Crab Dip

Curry, you fabulous spice, why must I always sleep on my love for you?  Every time I add this fabulous powder to a dish I’m reminded of my love of Indian cuisine, and my need to eat it more often.

If you’re not crazy for curry like me, may I inform you that curry is said to prevent certain diseases like colon cancer and Alzheimer’s.  If that’s not enough… it’s claimed to be one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, wink, wink.
