Excited? Stoked? Giddy? Yes. Giddy. That’s the word I am feeling right now. Giddy about these Dr Pepper® Chicken Wings. And giddy with excitement because college football season is FINALLY here. Seriously, I adore football. It drives my family crazy, because I’m fairly vocal about it. (Fairly vocal = borderline obnoxious.)

I love everything about the game of football. The strategy. The pure luck. The wins, the losses, the drama, the tradition. I love the weather of the season, the school colors, the football parties of fall. And the FOOD.

When I first decided to start a blog, I had to pick a topic. You know, the one central theme that my blog would be about. It was a no-brainer for me. I was going to blog about football. Yep: Southern Mom in her 40’s Blogs About Football.

Wild Blackberry BBQ Sauce

Wild Blackberry BBQ Sauce

If you have ever spent a hot and humid afternoon picking through briars and brambles to get your hands on sweet-tart and juicy wild blackberries, then you know how precious this Wild Blackberry BBQ Sauce is.

Mixed with a little blood, sweat and tears (optional), we are sharing this amazing BBQ sauce recipe with you.

You can thank my husband for the idea.

If it were up to me, these little beauties would have been in a blackberry cobbler. This is definitely one of those times when I am glad I listened to him.

(Yeah, yeah, this is my way of saying he was right.)

Grilled Fresh Salmon Patties with Lemon Dill Mayo

Grilled Fresh Salmon Patties with Lemon Dill Mayo

Do you say “sal-mon” or “sammon”? Around here we call it “sammon”.

Guys…you have to try this recipe. If you in any way, shape or form like salmon or salmon patties, you will love this twist on a classic.

Fresh salmon is key. This is not your ordinary canned salmon patty. Finely chopped fresh salmon combined with panko bread crumbs, peppers, garlic and fresh dill make this recipe a treat.

Oh, yeah, and we grilled these Fresh Salmon Patties.

THIS is the something different you’ve been wanting for dinner.
