Kick off the season with our simple, crowd-pleasing menus.
These recipes are great recruits for your menu. "If you want wider eyes and bigger smiles from fellow fans, include easy-to-fix homemade foods," says Nina Swan-Kohler, a native Missourian and a pro at football food. Thanks to Nina and reader Kate Blood (she sent us the deviled eggs) you'll have a powerful team of winning recipes. Nina's selections come from her book, Tailgates to Touchdowns: Fabulous Football Food, available at www.footballfood.net.
