Southern Grown Mama
A bit about me:
I'm a Southern wife and mom from Georgia and I love to create great meals with fresh ingredients including homegrown veggies. I am the Executive Director of a local, in-school youth mentoring program. I have had awesome mentors in my life and enjoy sharing life, food, and experiences with others. One of my greatest mentoring moments came at about age 9 when my grandma from North Carolina took me out to pick apples ( yes climb up in the tree with ladders), bring them home, peel and cut them with a pairing knife for hours, prepare HOMEMADE pie crusts and finally BAKE and EAT the most delicious pies in the whole world!
Latest greatest meal cooked at home:
Baked Ham with Pineapple & Cherries
Homemade Mac and Cheese
Fresh Green Beans
Crowder Peas
Deviled Eggs
Angel Biscuits with homemade Strawberry Jam
Carrot Cake for Dessert
