About the Author
Debbie Moose is a freelance writer, cookbook author, and teacher of writing and cooking classes. Her monthly column "Sunday Dinner" has appeared in the Raleigh News & Observer since 1998. Her work has also appeared in Southern Living, and one of her essays was selected for the inaugural edition of Cornbread Nation 1: The Best of Southern Food Writing, compiled by the Southern Foodways Alliance. She is a former food editor of the Raleigh News & Observer. Moose grew up in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, with parents who tended such a large vegetable garden that they never had to buy canned vegetables or tomato sauce. There, Moose learned about the wonderful flavor of fresh ingredients. She earned her degree in journalism from The University of North Carolina and began working as a reporter, first for the Salisbury Post and then for the News & Observer. She combined her interests in food and writing as the editor of the News & Observer's food section for seven years, during which time it was twice named best section in the U.S. for its circulation category by the Association of Food Journalists. Moose is now a national-award-winning freelance writer. She has also been recognized for her volunteer work at a Raleigh agency that assists victims of domestic violence, where she is a counselor. She has taught several cooking classes and writing workshops, and volunteers with a literacy organization to teach English as a second language. An ardent college basketball fan since childhood, Moose lives with her husband in Raleigh, North Carolina. Visit Debbie's blog, Moose Munchies at DebbieMoose.com.

The title of the book sort of tricked me; just about anything seems to be included; I like cornbread, I like pumpkin mini-muffins, I like baked apples -- but what makes them tailgating foods?
Two stars because the recipes seem fine, they won't kill you, & a couple of them, say pickled okra roll ups, struck me as something I'd like to try. There are a few decent-looking dips, a few chowders, some classic drink recipes.
But please: "crusty bread & tossed salad" for the superbowl? Sounds like no fun at all.
Or 'shrimp and couscous salad'-- I think it seems too fussy for a tailgate, too sloppy for the 'game at home'
The writing in between & introducing the recipes is bouncy & upbeat, but so much so as to come off as breathlessly trying too hard. It also seems remarkably un-informed about sporting events--noon kickoffs & Sunday basketball tournaments are kind of an exception. The Nascar fans that I know would be seriously annoyed with me if the 'assorted microbrews' that Ms. Moose suggests for the daytona 500 didn't include at least one macrobrew...
By the way: thanks for the metric-conversion chart tucked in there just before the index -- but none of the recipes are metric...what the heck is it there for?
