As you can tell from most of my recipes - I'm a Southerner...No apologies here! From my early childhood I can remember corn-shucking, shelling field peas, eating peaches and plums straight off the trees, Grandpa picking figs, fried okra, Grandma's (we called her Grancie) homemade peach cobbler with homemade ice cream, and so many other memories that I hold dear.
2010 Top Southern Style
“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.”
~Writings to Young Women from Laura Ingalls Wilder: On Wisdom and Virtues
A good housekeeper is an executive officer, an accountant. She knows sanitation and hygiene; is a household physician and a nurse, she should have a social sense so as to make her family and guests feel at ease and happy. ~Mabel Kittredge, 1918
