Welcome to my Website
I am a Southwest Georgia born and bred redhead that grew up with her Grandmother’s influence in the kitchen, working in the garden, canning the bounty on her wood-cook stove, and learning to make dress patterns out of grocery bags. She preserved the past and created the future for her granddaughter, with her traditional values. I was probably, no doubt, born a “century too late.”
I worked for an old-timed aristocratic family at a Southern plantation estate as a House Coordinator-planning menus, preparing hors d’oeuvres, making specialty desserts for them and their guests.
As a certified judge for the famous “Memphis in May” cook-offs, I have judged cook-offs for 20 years. I have judged Wild Game Cook-offs and been selected as a Final Cook-off Judge.
I express my passion of cooking live on the local ABC-affiliate station during various Holidays throughout the year. The novelty of “good ole Southern cooking”, has created a lot of interest here in the North.
I have found that America is in dire straits to bring
“The Family Back To the Supper Table”.
I WANT THAT CHALLENGE!
Today’s lifestyles have literally split families apart.
“BRING THOSE FAMILIES BACK TO THE SUPPER TABLE!”
Just think what you could learn from your kids at that one meal. Teach these children and young adults how to cook. Not only would this incorporate family time, but would bring back nutrition.
This is my mission in the world. Let the kids remember how Mom and Grandmother taught them to do the basics in the kitchen and they will have memories and traditional values such as I did.
