Fall is officially here. This means that sports have most definitely taken over every TV and laptop {for that fantasy football business} in our home.

It’s a known thing that I don’t really get into sports; however the one thing I’ve always liked about the sport-filled-fall-season is the food. So when my friends at Simply Organic contacted me to come up with recipes to feature 3 of their spices plus an extract that would be suitable for tailgating. Well when it comes to food…you know I was all over it.


Whether you’re at the stadium in a lawn chair with koozie in hand or throwing a shin-dig at your home, I have four delicious recipes that just about anybody will love and devour. {I know I did!}

Okay so I’m all about roasting vegetables in the fall, and these easy roasted cauliflower florets call for turmeric, ginger and a little kick from red pepper flakes {to name a few} and who can resist roasted cauliflower? No. One.

Serve these up with a simple cilantro yogurt sauce and get-to-dipping!

If you like things spicy then bring on the heat with the help of cayenne pepper! The homemade barbecue sauce is super easy, spicy and you can make this whole thing in a skillet in your oven or a crock pot to take virtually anywhere!

Lentil sloppy joe sliders will be the hit of your sport gathering! These joes are a much healthier option to the traditional recipe and the filling can be kept warm in a crock pot. Win! Another win is that the simple ingredients that make up this lentil joe filling you should be able to find right in your pantry. Lentils, check. Cumin, check. Simply fill up a whole wheat bun and then top the finished joe with a fresh cilantro cabbage slaw for a little crunch and you’ve got a perfect hand-held portable sandwich!

Finally what tailgating party is complete without a little chocolate stout cupcake? I know! Chocolate and stout together in one handheld cake! Oh and they also come with a brown butter frosting and topped with chopped maple glazed bacon. Extreme? Maybe. Delicious? Heck yes! The vanilla extract really gives the chocolate-stout cake a delicious warmth… this is my newest cupcake obsession!

I really enjoyed partnering with Simply Organic to create (and eat) these recipes and I hope they grace your tailgate this season!
