Although I grew up (mostly) in Georgia, my own momma most definetely is not of the "belle" variety.  Right after high school, I married the baby of a very large, very southern family. And so, I learned about southern traditions and customs mainly from my mother-in-law, known in the… MORE

"There are stars in the Southern sky Southward as you go There is moonlight And moss in the trees...." The lyrics to one of my favorite songs could have been penned about the place where I live.  As I look out my window, I see silvery spanish moss dancing in the moonlight. The… 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!
