Hello world!

This is my very first food blog! Yay me! It has taken me some time to get it up and running and as I continue to learn, be patient with me. First, I want to thank you for stopping by to check out my site. Cooking has been a passion of mine since I was a small child. I was born and raised in Mobile, Alabama in a family full of strong independent women who all are amazing cooks. I’ve had the pleasure of watching my mother, my grandmother, as well as many other relatives cook. We had big Sunday suppers, family reunions and huge holiday turn-outs!

I love my southern roots even though I don’t live in the South anymore. I currently live in California with my husband of many years, as well as our teen boys. (One of which, is the pickiest eater I have ever seen!) I would say, I sorta have a California flare on my southern cooking and a HUGE sweet tooth! I have had the pleasure of driving (exploring) from Alabama to California and back multiple times and being able to experience foods in all states. Along the way, I have picked up my own style of cooking.

I have a habit of not using a real recipe when I cook. So, I will continue to work on that so I can be more helpful. Sometimes, I will list ingredients instead of exact measurements and for most cooks, they will understand and appreciate my honesty. It is not about re-creating an exact recipe, it is about making it your own and to your own taste! Lets get to cooking!
