I have a great passion for southern cuisine which is why I decided to publish a cookbook of more than 80 recipes that have been in my family for over a hundred years. I love, love,love southern cuisine. I love making it, creating it and new ideas for it and I love also taking pictures of it, serving it. I love to see the expression on a person face after they have tasted one of my dishes. From the Mac and cheese to the collard and mustard greens, candied yams, black eye peas, fried chicken and the desserts, there’s the peach cobbler, banana pudding, lemon pound cake. Everything is rich in flavor, comfort food. Now you can eat this southern cuisine in moderation, but beware because it can be so addicted. You will find yourself coming back for more and more.
We had a vegetable garden when we were growing up, so we grew most of our vegetables ans sold some also. We had stuff like fresh tomatoes, collard and mustard greens, squash, lettuce, onions and cucumbers and so much more.
We would make our dishes always add our own like maybe adding a fifth cheese to a four cheese, macaroni and cheese dis and so on and so on.
You too can create your own soul food dishes using your style, there’s Mississippi southern cuisine and there’s Louisiana southern cuisine that consist of your red beans and rice, shrimp and grits and jambalaya , Louisiana is just across the Mississippi River from my home and we have a lot in common when it comes to southern cuisine. Much of the seasons and favors are a lot of the same. There’s nothing like a down home, homemade home cook meal. So try it enjoy it and spread the love.
