Last week I made seven different soups in two days. Why, one may wonder, would anyone do that?  Dental surgery. My brother and sister-in-law each had extensive dental surgery on the same day and still cannot eat anything firmer than the consistency of yogurt. After a few days of such extreme… MORE

Have you ever looked at a food item and wondered "who was the first person to try this and what made them think it would be any good?" I mean, how hungry did the first guy to eat an oyster have to be? Dude found a lumpy rock in shallow saltwater, probably spent ten minutes prying it open to… MORE

Confession: I do not enjoy cooking when the weather is hot and humid. I know, I know .... this is a recipe site; a community for people who enjoy food and the process of preparing it. And I am one of those people - just not during July and August.     To compound my summer cooking is the… MORE

June is Pea Season in southwest Georgia, which, I think, must be the Pea Capital of the World. When I was growing up my mom only served English green peas from a can. She would warm them with butter and black pepper or serve them cold in a salad with onion and mayonnaise. I didn't care for… MORE

Hello, My name is GAHSMOMX3 and I am a hoarder. I come from a long line of hoarders; my maternal grandmother – who lived through the Depression – firmly believed she might, at some future date, NEED the twist ties that come on bread packages. My own mother’s hoarding is legendary; if she can… MORE

       For all of those frustrated by the process of getting a recipe published on this site, I thought I'd share my experience of getting my Spanish Mackerel recipe accepted for publication.  First, you or someone in your family must catch a fish that you… MORE

       Although it may still feel like Winter in many parts of the country, Spring has fully sprung in SouthWest Georgia! Dogwoods, azaleas and wisteria fill the air with a heady fragrance that cause bees to fly drunkenly around my yard. Despite severe … MORE

      Traditionally, in the South, "dinner" is a cooked meal served in the middle of the day, "lunch" is quick, usually cold, mid day meal and "supper" is the last meal of the day - often warmed leftovers from "dinner". … MORE

     Eight years ago I moved within driving distance of the gulf of Mexico. Until then, I thought that I like seafood. I was wrong. The battered covered shrimp that my mom fried right out of the box, the bland white fish reconstituted with some type of … MORE

Around midnight last night, I was awakened by clanging and banging in my kitchen. Some part of my brain registered the fact that Darling Daughter had made it home alive and I went back to dreamland.  When I woke again at 5am - an hour before my alarm - I remembered the strange sounds and… MORE

About Me
My favorite things to cook
Like any good southern mama, I cook a lot of traditional southern foods but I really enjoy experimenting with ethnic foods, soups and vegetarian dishes. I use locally grown produce, which I can & freeze, as much as possible and I am always on the look out for recipes for all of the fish & venision that my darlin' hubby brings home.
My favorite family cooking traditions
I learned to cook from some very talented home cooks. There were never any lessons, just time spent in the kitchen watching and asking questions. Now, I enjoy working in the kitchen with my almost-grown daughter.
My cooking triumphs
The first time my husband said my fried chicken was as good as his mama's, I felt like I won the lottery!
My cooking tragedies
When I was a very pregnant newlywed (20ish yrs ago) I tried to make chicken and dumplings for the first time. I stirred that pot, to keep it from burning of course, until all of the dumplings dissolved into a thick gravy-like soup. I cried because my dish was ruined, but my sweet husband ate it anyway!
