If you are a college football fan, chances are you will be tailgating at a game this season.
Nina Swan-Kohler thinks football fans are among the most loyal of any fans. She also knows how much they enjoy their pre-game rituals.
That's why she's written a new cookbook, "Tailgates to Touchdowns," that features recipes developed especially for football fans and tailgaters.
Most of the recipes in the 80-page cookbook can be prepared in less than 30 minutes.
Each chapter has a football-related name. Chapter one is "Tailgates" and features appetizers and snacks. The "Sidelines" chapter has new sauces, salsas and spreads to complement brats and burgers. The "Half-Time Show" chapter deals with entrees.
Accompanying each recipe is "Extra Points" to provide cooking hints or serving suggestions.
"For most football fans, preparing for the tailgate party is part of the fun of attending the game," Swan-Kohler said. "This book is all about helping you have even a better experience."
