It’s almost that time of year again! NCAA College Football and the NFL bring in the school year, the holidays, and all sorts of other things we love about American culture. In tandem comes our love for delicious foods that are easy to prepare and just as easy to finish. Whether it’s buffalo chicken dip (Don’t worry, that recipe will come in the future!), our West Indies Crab Salad, or this month’s Crowd Pleasin’ Crab Dip…these foods all go perfectly with friends, family, and a football game!
