💕🍳Heart of the Home 🥘💕
I'm just an old time, country cook. I learned most of my recipes and techniques from my mother, grandmother, aunts, mother-in-law, neighbors and even my husband! Although I wasn't very interested when I was young, I quickly learned the need for cooking when I got married and had a family. And I discovered my joy for cooking!
- If you're late getting supper started, fry up an onion right before your husband comes home. He'll get in a good mood fast when he smells food cooking. Tip from an older lady on keeping your husband happy.
As you can tell from most of my recipes - I'm a Southerner...No apologies here! From my early childhood I can remember shucking corn, shelling Purple Hull peas on the front porch swing, eating peaches and plums straight off the trees, Grandpa walking across a big field to pick figs that were growing along the back fencerow, picking (cutting) okra, fried okra, my grandmothers' homemade peach cobbler with homemade ice cream, and so many other memories that I hold dear.

Peach cobbler for dessert. Quick, easy, yummy. 1-1/2 cups self rising flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 3/4 cup milk, 1/2 stick butter and a 15 oz can of sliced peaches in heavy syrup. Melt butter in pan, pour in the can of peaches undrained, mix other ingredients in a bowl and pour over the peaches. Bake at 375 degrees for about 25 mins or until golden brown. #peachcobbler 😋
“As the years pass, I am coming more and more to understand that it is the common, everyday blessings of our common everyday lives for which we should be particularly grateful.
They are the things that fill our lives with comfort and our hearts with gladness -- just the pure air to breathe and the strength to breath it; just warmth and shelter and home folks; just plain food that gives us strength; the bright sunshine on a cold day; and a cool breeze when the day is warm.”
