"Snacks on Snacks": Just when I thought I was out, PSU football pulls me back in!!!

It has been a long, hot summer (a rainy one too) and I hope you BSD'rs are continuing to enjoy it. When I last visited you, the issues-at-hand were so great, even a photo of 1000 pounds of crisp bacon couldn't draw your attention to food. Yeah -- you were that preoccupied!

I'm hoping (assuming) I am still welcome to write BSD's SOS post on Thursday evenings, and, after sitting in my hot-tub for a while tonight thinking and drinking G&T's, I decided to start RIGHT NOW!

After two-a-days, who wouldn't want to come back to their dorm room and deep-fry some of that healthy zucchini that mom left on your dorm's doorstep:

Inhale. Ahhh, there we go... smell deep-fried anything. Exhale. Ahhh, there we go... smell deep-fried anything. We're back on track now. Serve this beer-batter-dipped, panko-crusted vegetable with a healthy dose of my:

For the dessert lover in you and your crowd, here's a photo of my cherry pound cake (be sure to substitute fresh or frozen blueberries when making this for tailgate):

As we at Penn State have come to shockingly find out: Life is not always a bowl of cherries, but, what do we care... WE ARE PENN STATE -- we've got each other!!!

From appetizers to desserts, I am looking forward to sharing an awesome Penn State foodie tailgate season with you. If you have any requests or ideas -- I'm all ears!!!

As always, you can visit Jessedotsmom's Foodie Blog to get these recipes and many other foodie ideas.

For the glory,
