Tailgating TablescapeAs summer winds down, football season begins to ramp up. College football rivalries are particularly intense - so why not take the pregame party just as seriously? Impress the opposing team with a tailgating tablescape that hardly looks as though it was meant for the stadium parking lot.Read More »from 5 Tips for Creating an Awesome Tailgate

Because tailgating requires traveling to the stadium, it's important to keep your party portable. These tablescape props are easy to carry and fit into your car, and many of them do double duty: for example, a woolen blanket makes a both festive tablecloth and a warm wrap for the game itself.
All you need to get started are a card table or the flat trunk of a car or truck. Transform the space by adding a covering - that woolen blanket or a big piece of brown butcher paper. Then, treat the space as you would a party buffet. Add decorations like pennant flags or seasonal flowers (or both) in your team's colors.

Avocado Deviled Eggs
I recently remembered how amazing and under appreciated deviled eggs were. I've started to see them show up more frequently as appetizers and even as bar-food options. I've been ordering them and eating them and loving them and it got me thinking... How I can make this even better? The answer to that (and the answer to many similar questions)? Add avocado.

These waffles have the best secret ingredient!!Take a lesson from Leslie Knope and enjoy some delicious waffles for breakfast, lunch or dinner! While I've created many varieties-pumpkin, apple spice, blueberry-there is a secret ingredient that makes all the waffles I cook light and fluffy. It's buttermilk. If you can't find buttermilk, you can substitute regular milk (or even almond or coconut for a dairy free version). Just omit the 1/4 tsp baking soda in the recipe below. This recipe makes 8 waffles. It's easy to double if you need more.Read More »from Waffle Good! Kick-Off Emmy's Weekend with a Parks and Recreation-Inspired Breakfast
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
2 eggs separated

These carbs are the best for your body.While carbs tend to get a lot of bad press (think the Atkins diet), they are an essential part of any diet if you expect to have energy and function at an optimal level. "Your body definitely needs carbs," says nutritionist Kelly Aronica, who believes that they should make up at least 50-60% of the calories you consume daily. Why? Because glucose, the simplest type of carbohydrate, is the only thing that can be used to meet the energy needs of the body, support the brain and nervous system, and maintain a well-functioning digestive system.Read More »from These Carbs Are Actually Good for You!
RELATED: How Carbs Can Help You Lose Weight
Though the body has a backup plan if no carbohydrates are eaten, it's not perfect (hence why it's meant as a backup plan). As Aronica explains it, if there's a lack of carbohydrates, the body essentially converts protein and fat into glucose, which is what the body converts into fuel so we have energy. The problem is that this system is less efficient and slower than just consuming carbohydrates and,

Thanksgiving crowded airportsWhile traveling may never be 100 percent stress-free, you can improve the odds by avoiding some of the worst travel days of the year. Unfortunately, this is easier said than done, as many of our favorite holidays are precisely the days when traffic jams and crowded airports are common. As you'd expect, one of the biggest food holidays of the year, Thanksgiving, is also topping the list of the worst days to travel.Read More »from Vacationers Beware: What Are the Worst Days to Travel?

Travel expert Jim Grace, who heads up the travel insurance comparison website InsureMyTrip, says to avoid peak travel times when possible. "Our statistics show more people always seem to travel around the major holidays," he says. "This is also the time when airline prices go up - and inevitably - longer lines at airport security checkpoints. The first Monday coming off a holiday weekend, for example, is generally much busier at airports and roadways."
