How It Got Started
Southern heritage and appreciation through food, traditions, and storytellin'...
This little project has honestly been a long-time coming. I've always agreed with the expression, "if you don't use it, you lose it" and since moving away from South Carolina, I have been scared that this could be true for my "southerness". I mean, living in Michigan, I don't have anyone to be southern with, except for my mom and dad, who visit from time to time, and as time has gone on, I have felt the slow "goodbye" of my southern ways. In 2020, I endeavored to use some of the extra time I found on my hands to refresh my southern kitchen skills and the southern "from scratch" tradition of cooking that I grew up with.
My hope with this site is to catalogue and recreate my favorite southern foods, share the southern traditions and stories I grew up with in South Carolina, and share my favorite southern products and spots.
