Hey y'all. I am a 5th generation Southern cook living in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. I have such an addiction to cooking and preserving family recipes for generations to come.
I like to say my style is from the HEARTLAND to the SOUTH.
I was brought up with all the traditional southern recipes on my mothers side of the family, and German and Pennsylvania Dutch farm recipes on my dads side of the family. But once I moved to Florida I adopted a healthier eating lifestyle. I learned to cook with local ingredients. I found what was best for me, actually made me feel better. It was a whole lifestyle change. But as y'all know, I still love my traditional family recipes. I have just learned the moderation I need to keep in mind and mix these delicious recipes into my healthier recipes.
But y'all, so many memories come from a recipe or a meal. How many of you can remember your favorite meal that mom or grandma made. How many times have you smelled a dish cooking and it immediately takes you back to your childhood. Was it licking the bowl from moms cake frosting, the smell of cookies baking in the oven, or even the taste of a food from your childhood.
Sit back and enjoy the recipes from my past, and the ones I have made my own and updated for today's tastes and local produce. Please let me know if there is a recipe your looking for or would like for me to develop for you.
Overall, I just hope you enjoy what I am bringing to you. Eat locally, and healthy, but remember that you can mix in your family favorites from time to time as well.
