I have two wonderful boys and I am married to a power lineman/farmer. We live in a remote area in South Central Ky on “Old McDonald’s Farm” with three dogs, cows, goats, hens and roosters, all of them spoiled rotten!
I was raised a farm girl (working in tobacco fields) and most of my summers were spent with my Grandmother (I am only one of 13 grand kids). I learned how to cook from watching my Mother and Grandmother in the kitchen.
My style of cooking is very southern and down to earth. Sometimes I try to get fancy; sometimes it works, but most of the time it doesn’t! My husband tells me I should just stick with what I know!
So, grab a cool glass of southern sweet tea and come sit a spell with us, you’ll be glad you did!
Hi, SGC reader! I’m absolutely thrilled to be a part of the Southern Gals Cook family! I’m a thirty-something mother of 2 children and wife to my wonderful husband of 15 years. I’m originally from the Peach State (GO DAWGS!), but God has directed my path and I have followed it to the Bluegrass State.
I have been a cook since I was big enough to stand on a stool. I’ve watched my mom, my dad (who we call Poppa), and both of my grandmothers whip up some amazing things from the kitchen and I have tried to emulate those same skills in my kitchen for my family.
Over the last couple of years, I have become very aware of the disturbing changes in our food culture and have made it a mission to feed my family the same way my grandparents did: from the garden and from scratch. I have been so excited to learn from Dana in the areas of gardening, canning and freezing. I hope you all will join me and the other Gals as we develop new recipes and shortcuts so that you can bring these same healthy, home cooked meals to your family’s table in less time.
