I’ve got two words for you – Fantasy Football. Yes, that crazy competition where people make their own “imaginary” teams from real players in the NFL and score points based on actual performance. I know it sounds goofy, but it’s really a lot of fun. Just to clarify, I don’t play myself, but Mr. A Southern Soul does and he is known as the Commish.

Welcome to A Southern Soul and our new look! I am thrilled at how things turned out. As you can see, I’ve updated my page with a much cleaner look but one that still has all the recipes, pictures, links and information from previous posts.

The main thing is this, how things look is really a minor part of A Southern Soul. I am so honored that you all stop by to say hello, make my recipes, and share my life with your friends an family. It’s kinda odd that friendship can be made through “the air” but I’ve met some sweet people who have turned into friends all due to finding this little spot.
So, here we go…another day in the life of little ‘ol me. Thank you friends, for letting me share in your day!
This southern soul is counting her blessings.
