My name is Lorie and I live in southeast Mississippi, which is the greatest state ever. I have a husband, a daughter, a son-in-law, and a five year old grandson who is totally awesome. They are all awesome, but my grandson is especially awesome.
Here is a terribly boring and cliche “about me” page statement: I’m an amateur home cook who loves cooking, eating, creating recipes, and taking pictures of food. I know that sounds like every other food blogger on the Internet but that pretty much sums it up.
I also love entering cooking and recipe contests and have been doing so since about 2005, even though I don’t enter as often as I once did. I’ve been extremely blessed to have had the opportunity to travel all over the country to compete on the contest cooking circuit. I’ve even won actual cash and prizes for my recipes, and believe you me, no one is more surprised by this than I am. I’ve met lots of amazing people because of my hobby and that is the best prize of all.
On this blog you will find some of my original recipes, from contest winning recipes to recipes I create from my everyday cooking. Sometimes I post recipes I come across in magazines, websites, cookbooks, etc., because I like cooking other people’s recipes too.
Recipes are meant to be shared. That’s what I always say.
In conclusion, I love wildflowers, fishing on Buckatunna creek with my husband, and Dunkin’ Donuts medium roast coffee with heavy cream and sugar. And just so you know, I think raisins come from the devil and they have no place in my life.
That is all.
PS. I’m really glad you’re here!
PPS. The quickest way to ask me something is to send me an email. I am not fast in responding to blog comments. I’m really sorry about that, but I’ve got a lot on my plate at this time. Heh.
