Recipes from the Heart

Food is more than nourishment for the body in the South. It is part of our heritage. Recipes many times are passed down by demonstration and never written down. Every recipe has a story. Unfortunately, too often, the best-loved family recipes don’t make into even the beloved church cookbooks that I love so. Even some of my favorite recipes are not written. My fear is that with the passing of family members, not only will the recipes be forgotten, but also the stories that go with them. I have had a lifelong love affair with food, so it seems right that it would be well represented in my blog. I’ll share some of my favorites and hope you’ll enjoy as much as I do! I will be downright begging my Momma, aunts, and cousins to chip in on this.
