About me

Location Sweet Home Alabama
Introduction I come from a family of great southern cooks, of people who could take ingredients they had on hand and not just "make do" but make magic at the dinner table. Fresh vegetables, cornmeal batters, our beloved White Lily flour and tattered hand written recipes are in my blood and in my kitchen. Armed with my HomeEc degree, cherished family recipes, and Mama and Grandmama on speed dial, I hope to bring a bit of our heritage to you.
Interests I'm interested in hearing what recipes you'd like to see! Also, have you tried any of the recipes on this site? I'd love to hear about them!
Favorite Movies The Women (original version with Norma Shearer), anything with Betty Grable, Esther Williams, etc. I just love old movies.
Favorite Music Anything and everything.
Favorite Books I love cookbooks! I also love most books set in a historical setting. I don't really read sci-fi, vampire, scary books, etc.

In the dream where you show up to school naked, why do you never go swimming?

I was probably too busy down in the home ec department making something terribly cute and fashionable for me to wear!
