Football season is at a frenzied peak, and gridiron fans have the spread-out behinds to prove it. What is it about football that inspires our worst snacking instincts?  Both Mr. Bad Food and Mrs. Good Food comment.
sallySally's Recommendations for Labor Day, Back to School, Tailgating and Fall.

La Tienda
la_tienda_peppersPadron Peppers Are Here! - Some Are Hot, Some Are Not!
Pimientos de Padrón are delightful peppers that originate in Padrón, a medieval seaside town in Galicia. People flock to tapas bars in the neighboring pilgrimage city of Santiago de Compostela to savor a plateful of these amazingly tasty, tiny peppers.

Newman's Own Organics
newmans_pretzelsPretzels: Their packages are distinctive and eye-catching and feature an American Gothic "Pa" Newman and daughter Nell. They come in 7 oz. to 8 oz. bags and in rounds, sticks, nuggets, minis or thins. Since they're baked (not fried), these pretzels make a great low-fat, healthy snack. The Bavarian-Style sourdough are fat-free, while the other pretzels have only 1 to 1.5 gram fat (no trans-fat). Perfect for tailgate parties!

Dave's Gourmet
As summer's end draws near, Dave's Gourmet is there to transition you into the warm, rich flavors of fall.  Dave's Butternut Squash Pasta Sauce, winner of the best pasta sauce in the industry, will delight you with its rich, sweet flavor.  Served over pasta, on pizza, or used as a soup base, it is a sauce that you will really love.

Travel to Sausalito, CA
davis_sausalitoOn your next visit to San Francisco, don't miss the lovely seaside town of Sausalito.  With a romantic atmosphere similar to towns in Italy and close to nature's bayside wonder hotels in Sausalito are a treat not to miss -- just across the bridge, or ferry, from San Francisco.

Gustiamo was founded by native Italians with a passion for extraordinary food. Their taste is opinionated and uncompromising. They believe eating well is a birthright. Think perfectly balanced extra-virgin olive oils, bronze die-extruded pasta, short grain rice for risotto, jams and marmalades made in small batches with tons of fruit.

Lillie Belle Farms
lillie belle caramelsChocolatier Jeff Shepherd of Lillie Belle Farms Handmade Chocolates was chosen as one of the top ten chocolatiers in the United States in 2009.  This award, from Dessert Professional magazine, honors the ten North American-based chocolatiers whose confectionery craft exemplifies the use of chocolate, and whose contributions have elevated the chocolate industry. Personally, I LOVE the Lavender-Infused Caramels with Fleur de Sel on top!
