  1. Hi Sally,

    Just wanted you to know that we tried your grilled corn recipe for Memorial Day. I posted it on my Tailgating Through The South blog post today with credit to you and your site. As we get closer to tailgating season I would love for you to do a recipe or two for me or maybe a guest blog post. Your parents will be joining Dave and me in the mountains this June and we look forward to hearing more about your project.
