Watch the Southern Plate Cooking Show

Thanks to my husband for recording the Southern Plate Tailgating Cooking Show this past week at UNA. We divided it up into segments lasting a few minutes long each so you can start and stop as you have time. I cannot tell you how much fun I had! This was the first time I’ve ever done anything like that. I’d never been on a stage with a mic and I was worried I might get nervous but let me tell you, I walked out onto that stage with my Southern Plate family in the audience and I was instantly at home. I could do that every night and be happy!

Hope you enjoy it. I would love to hear back from you in the comments section!



Introduction (Boy did they make me sound good!), Welcome, and Texas Caviar

Reading a special passage from the book

Talking about the Southern Living Article, Thrilling kids with popcorn,The Alphabet story, Family as the ultimate backup plan.

My fancy dishpan, Mary Poppins’ visit to my house, making caramel corn, wrapping up the show.

I had such a wonderful time doing this show, I hope you enjoy it. We had a break in between each segment where my dad and Brady went to the mic and gave away door prizes. Bradybug LOVED the microphone and took the opportunity to tell a few jokes and interact with the audience, that is why we’re all laughing a bit as we go back to the cooking each time.

Special thanks again to the HES students at UNA for all of their hard work. I’ve been asked a lot whether or not I will do more cooking shows like this and there is no way I could have pulled it off without the culinary students so y’all would have to get me a big old tour bus to take them all on the road!

Flaming enthusiasm, backed up by horse sense and

persistence, is the quality that most frequently makes

for success.

  1. I am curious to find out what blog platform you have been using? I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest blog and I’d like to find something more safe. Do you have any solutions?

  2. Christy,
    Thanks so much for sharing this show. It was wonderful. You are such a delight and clearly a sincere person. You deserve your own show – I already am looking forward to your next cookbook.

  3. Hi Christy! Soooo…when do you start your own cooking show?? You are such a natural! And thank you Ricky for putting this up for those of us who couldn’t attend. It was the next best thing to being there. We also appreciate the support you give Christy. You may think you’re just quietly working behind the scenes, but you are an imprtant part of Southern Plate, too!

  4. Hey Christy, just found out my copy of your book is on it’s way and I should get it on Friday. I am so excited to see it. Thanks for all your great posts. I wish you much continued success. I loved the story in Southern Living. I wish you were coming to Montgomery,AL.
