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!

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!
