Hotty Toddy

To hell with LSU

I wandered so aimless life filled with sin

I wouldn't let my dear savior in

Then Jesus came like a stranger in the night

Praise the Lord I saw the light.

Our truth is marching on


This decadent Mississippi Sin dip is an easy appetizer made with cheese and ham mixed together and baked inside a loaf of French bread until it is ooey gooey.

This decadent Mississippi Sin dip is an easy appetizer made with cheese and ham mixed together and baked inside a loaf of French bread until it is ooey gooey. The perfect game day appetizer or holiday party appetizer!

I saw the light I saw the light

No more darkness no more night

Now I'm so happy no sorrow in sight

Praise the Lord I saw the light.


16 oz Sour cream

8 oz Cream cheese, , softened

2 c Sharp cheddar cheese, , shredded

1 c Ham, , chopped

1 tbsp Hot sauce

1 tsp Worcestershire sauce

1 loaf French bread, , optional or serve in bowl

Just like a blind man I wandered along

Worries and fears I claimed for my own

Then like the blind man that God gave back his sight

Praise the Lord I saw the light.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Cut a hole out of the top of the bread and remove the soft inside. You can save the top of the bread to serve with the dip later.

Mix the sour cream, cream cheese, cheddar cheese, ham, hot sauce, and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl.

Add mixture to french bread.

Wrap stuffed bread in aluminum foil and bake for 45 minutes or until warmed through.

Serve with bread and crackers.

Look away! Look away!

Look away! Dixie Land.

The south will rise again

The cream will rise to the top

Get your crawfish balls at the Zebra tent

LSU fans smell just like corn dogs.

Gee, I wonder if I took a bite of your finger, if you would taste just like a corn dog?

Peach Preserves

Nothing is more satisfying than homemade peach preserves made from fresh summer peaches. Give this easy, small batch recipe a try and enjoy preserves long after peach season is over.

Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.

In Dixie Land where I was born in,

early on a frosty mornin',

Look away, look away, look away, Dixie Land.


4 cups peeled and sliced peaches about 4-6 peaches

¼ cup bottled lemon juice

⅔ cup water

4 tablespoons low or no-sugar needed powdered pectin

4 cups granulated sugar

Then I wish I was in Dixie, hooray! hooray!

In Dixie Land I'll take my stand to live and die in Dixie,

Away, away, away down South in Dixie,

Away, away, away down South in Dixie.


Place peach slices in the bowl of a food processor and pulse until peaches reach your desired consistency (depends on if you like big chunks or little chunks of peaches in your jam).

Combine mixture with lemon juice, water, and pectin in a large medium saucepan. Bring mixture to a hard rolling boil.

Stir in sugar. Return to a boil and continue to boil for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently, until jam reaches desired consistency.

Remove pan from heat. Skim foam if desired. Jam should continue to thicken for up to 48 hours.

O, I wish I was in Dixie!

Hooray! Hooray!

In Dixie Land I'll take my stand

To live and die in Dixie

Away, away,

Away down south in Dixie!

What’s your gameday recipe?

Remember to pour out your cans

Drink in solo cups

Party at the Grove

Meet me at the Grove

Is there a world outside the Grove

Walk of Champions

Walk of Pride

On our flags

Decals on our cars

Signs on our yard

On our plates

On our napkins

Sketched in our chandeliers

The grove is a space for everyone

Peach preserves

Natural preservatives

Preserved ideology

Preserving our heritage

Jarred patriotism

Banded together

Our alliances formed

Our causes just

For cause and comrades

Never take our freedom away

What was once will never be again

What has been will be again,

what has been done will be done again;

there is nothing new under the sun.

Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord:

He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored;

He hath loosed the fateful lightning of His terrible swift sword:

His truth is marching on.

Rebels vs. Landsharks

I have seen Him in the watch-fires of a hundred circling camps,

They have builded Him an altar in the evening dews and damps;

I can read His righteous sentence by the dim and flaring lamps:

His day is marching on.

It is all about the presentation.





I have read a fiery gospel writ in burnished rows of steel:

"As ye deal with my contemners, so with you my grace shall deal;

Let the Hero, born of woman, crush the serpent with his heel,

Since God is marching on."



1 1/3 cups (6.75 ounces) all-purpose flour

1 cup (7.5 ounces) granulated sugar

1 cup (7.5 ounces) brown sugar

1/2 cup (1.5 ounces) unsweetened cocoa powder

Bias Speech is any speech directed at a person because of their protected status, e.g. race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, gender expression, veteran or ability status that displays some level of prejudice or chauvinism. Hotty Toddy

Never lose a party here at Ole Miss, err University of Mississippi, err U of M, err Ole Miss


1/3 cup (about 1 ounce) unsweetened cocoa powder

1/4 cup milk

1/4 cup (2 ounces, 4 tablespoons) butter

Pinch of salt

2 cups (8 ounces) powdered sugar

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

He has sounded forth the trumpet that shall never call retreat;

He is sifting out the hearts of men before His judgment-seat:

Oh, be swift, my soul, to answer Him! be jubilant, my feet!

Our God is marching on.

Will you die for your pride?


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a large, rimmed baking sheet (half sheet pan, about 12X18 inches) with parchment and lightly grease with cooking spray. Alternately, you can line with foil and grease the foil or leave the pan unlined and grease the pan.

For the bars, in a large bowl, whisk together the flour, sugar, brown sugar, cocoa (sift the cocoa into the bowl using a fine mesh strainer if it is overly clumpy), baking soda and salt. Add the melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Mix together until combined (don't overmix; just whisk/stir until no dry streaks remain and ingredients are evenly combined).

Spread the batter evenly in a thin layer in the prepared pan. Bake for 15-20 minutes until the top is springy to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Watch closely so the thin bars don't overbake!

Remove from the oven, sprinkle the top evenly with marshmallows, and bake for 3-5 minutes more until the marshmallows are softened

Are you ready?

Hell yeah

Damn Right

Hotty Toddy, Gosh amighty

Who the hell are we, Hey!

Flim flam, bim bam,

Ole Miss, By Damn

Mississippi Made

Mississippi Mud

Win the day

Seize the day

Carpe diem

Sprinkle with pecans and let cool to room temperature before glazing.

For the chocolate topping, in a medium saucepan, whisk together the cocoa powder (I sift it in to avoid clumps), milk, butter, and salt. Bring the mixture to a gentle boil over medium heat, stirring or whisking constantly.

Remove from the heat and whisk in the powdered sugar and vanilla. Thin with additional milk, if needed, until the mixture is thick but pourable and can easily be drizzled across the bars.

Drizzle the glaze in a crisscross pattern across the bars. Serve the bars warm or at room temperature. They are easier to cut if they've been cooled completely.

Forward Rebels, march to fame,

Hit that line and win this game,

We know that you'll fight it through,

For your colors Red and Blue --

Fight, Fight, Fight.

Rebels you're the Southland's pride,

Take that ball and hit your stride,

Don't stop 'till the victory's won,

For your Ole Miss.

Fight, fight for your Ole Miss.

Heighty! Tighty!

Gosh A Mighty!

Who in the h—l are we?

Rim! Ram! Flim! Flam!

Ole Miss, by D—n!

In the beauty of the lilies Christ was born across the sea,

With a glory in his bosom that transfigures you and me:

As he died to make men holy, let us die to make men free,

While God is marching on.

Hotty Toddy

To hell with LSU
