With the New Year often comes new resolutions to eat a more balanced diet. Sound familiar? I think I resolve to eat better every January, but often dread the idea of ditching delicious, flavorful snacks. The good news is, delicious snacks can fit into a balanced meal plan (as in this recipe!).

Tailgating At Home :: Pizza + Pumpkin Shandy

Two things are true this time of year in my household: we watch a lot of football and we always seem to have a house full of family and friends. I love that entertaining on game day has a much more relaxed vibe which means it’s the perfect opportunity to keep things simple. No need to fuss in the kitchen or plan a ton of appetizers. Simply bake your favorite frozen pizzas and serve up a beer cocktail –you’ll make everyone happy!
