I'm a Virginian transplanted to North Carolina. Grew up in the Shenandoah Valley cooking with a grandma and mom from West Virginia, picked up more great cooking from my Mennonite friends & their moms, and now am acclimating to SOUTHERN y'all. I'm in a cooking club with 6 other ladies (Dinner Chix). We take turns hosting & selecting a theme or cuisine for each month's dinner. I love new recipes(especially if they're new & interesting). The secret to enjoying cooking is DON'T BE SKEERED!!
