Meat is a contentious subject in my family. Hubby would be perfectly content to be served some form of meat three times a day, with a liberal amount thrown into his veggies for seasoning. Darling Daughter, on the other hand, has been a vegetarian since the age of eight when she discovered the… MORE

This morning I woke to the sound of gunfire. Early. Very, very early. In my neck of the woods, today is the last day of deer season and the locals are taking full advantage of every minute of daylight. My personal hunter, however, lay in the bed next to me. "got one" he mumbled,… 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!
