Being raised in Atlanta and a southern family, you can only imagine, I <3 to cook and inventing recipes is a natural task, it requires little effort on my end. I have three children and a husband with exquisite taste so the supply and demand in my house keep me busy. I have been cooking for consistently for about eight years. Also, I can't leave out my grandmother that taught me at an early age to cook southern cuisine. I spent many hours as a young women helping her bread fried green tomatoes, okra, make biscuits, shred cheese, you name it, I helped. It caught her by surprise when I would volunteer to clean out the chicken parts or cut up onions, but I just love being in the kitchen.
