Slowcooker Cheeseburger Sloppy Joes

If there are two things we love to do it’s eat and have fun.

So when football season comes around, that’s why we’re all excited and wearing the same “lucky” shirt every Friday in the office – how many more fun things are there than the camaraderie of your fellow fans, eating delicious food at a tailgate party, and spending the next day recovering and refueling so you can do it all over again the following week?

If you’re tired of the same foods every season, let us help. Check out these recipes for some fun food inspiration for your next tailgate!

Nuts about Nuts!

 

 

Coconut Macadamia Nut Granola

We’re going nuts over nuts here! Well, some of us are anyway. Our office is pretty divided when it comes to loving tree nuts vs. not really being a fan. And of course, we have to be aware and remain conscious of those with allergies.

In the past we’ve created recipe collections and offered suggestions for those seeking completely nut-free recipes. Now we’ve made a collection for those who love nuts and are also looking for non-traditional ideas.

We had never heard of Pine Nut Breadsticks before so when we did, we immediately had to find out how to make them!

Pine Nut Breadsticks

Sometimes bread recipes can seem intimidating-it might look there are too many ingredients…too many steps…but that’s not always the case. These breadsticks are actually relatively easy. In just a few hours you’ll be able to dip these yummy sticks in your favorite soup or serve as an appetizer.

Pistachio Fluff

The name might sound off-putting (can you eat fluff?), but we promise this “fluff” is edible, delicious, and practically takes no time to make. All you need is some pistachio pudding, chopped nuts, whipped topping, fruit (we prefer pineapple), marshmallows, and about an hour’s worth of chilling in the fridge and you’ve got a lovely dessert salad dish!

Cashew Bread

This cashew bread recipe calls for cashew butter and non-dairy milk and makes for a grain-free, moist loaf. It’s simple recipe that also freezes well, so double the ingredients and enjoy one for later, too.

Did you know you can also make cashew butter and pine nut sour cream? It’s true! Check out our entire collection of other creative recipes to enjoy.

Happy cooking!
