As a true southern girl, cooking has always been a passion of mine. I believe that the best way to share moments, values, and create family is around a table. Part of my passion is to preserve family traditions and recipes through the current generation. However, I also like to make food lighter, brighter, and healthier than some of the best loved dishes. I mean, anyone who knows anythingabout Southern cooking knows that butter, sugar, cream, and frying almost anything are staples in the diet, so I like to mix it up, add in some new spices and flavors, but still maintain the good flavor we are all used to in food. 
So welcome to The Modern Southern Cook site. I hope you enjoy following me on my journey of culinary exploration. I think it will be a tasty one!
