About Me

About Dana


Hello family, friends, and neighbors, I am so glad you dropped in for a visit.  Southern Gals Cook was inspired for my desire to share recipes, gardening tips, faith and farm living with family and friends.

I am married to Lance, a power lineman/farmer.  We live on a farm with our cows and dogs! I have two wonderful boys, Taylor and Landon, and a beautiful daughter-in-law, Kristen (Taylor’s wife).  I recently was blessed with my very first grandbaby!

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.  There’s nothing I enjoy more that cooking a meal and having friends and family sitting around the table!  I have been on the kitchen committee where I attend church for many years.  Me and the other ladies on this committee prepare meals for our church family often.

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!!

Thanks for stopping in and I hope you come back soon!

God Bless

  1. Dana, my name is Ron Ford and I am the person who won the Italian Cream Cake at the benefit auction Saturday night in Alvaton, Ky. David Lamphear was right it is delicious to say the least. Never thought I would say this, hope my mom forgives me but it is as good as her’s, God rest her soul! If you would like for me to return the plate it was on please let me know, and again Thank You!


    1. Hey Ron, I am so glad you enjoyed the cake! No need to return the plate, but thanks for asking. I’ll soon be taking orders for the quickly approaching holidays, so if you would need a cake for an event, family get together, etc. just let me know and I’ll whip one up for ya!


  2. Hey Ladies, I started following along due to my friendship with Tangi, but have grown to absolutely love this site!!! All of you are an inspiration in so many valuable ways. I’m still learning about the whole blogging thing, but can’t think of another place to do so. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
