I know for a fact I need my funnel cake , candy apple and fair corn dog.  I adore portable food and really enjoy just about anything on a stick . Have fun with your family , choose a few recipes and make them together .  With the help of several fellow bloggers I made a list of wonderful recipes to chose from.
