 So I hear tell we have a big old football game coming up next week. I won’t be pulling for any team in particular (growing up in Alabama you either embrace the football fandom or you run from it – and I run pretty fast) but when it comes to football I’m on the side of any team whose fans like to serve food – so with that in mind, here are some recipes that might come in handy!

Stuffed Pizza Sticks

My dad read this post on Southern Plate and immediately printed it off for my Mama to make for him. Since then he’s asked for it on a regular basis.

Mama, you better go get more pizza sauce!

Chicken Planks

Everyone’s Favorite – especially teens and kids!

Be sure to whip up some Comeback Sauce to go with ’em! 

Little Pigs in A Blanket

My daughter’s favorite, these are always a hit with the kids!

Slow Cooker Pulled Pork BBQ

Pulled pork barbecue is pretty much heaven on a bun as far as I’m concerned and it seems every region has their own way of doing it. Where I am from, the barbecue is smoked and juicy, served as pictured here or with a little bit of clear mild vinegar sauce poured over it. Here is how to make it!

Tender Babyback Ribs – in the oven!

Love me some Babyback ribs – especially when they’re this easy!
