Most families have a tight budget in theses times and being a single mom for many years I have had to learn to make ends meet on a ground beef budget making mistakes along the way and plenty of lessons learned.
So where did the name for this blog come from? Here’s the answer:
My mom is my inspiration for cooking and managing a home. Have you ever heard “You can’t get blood from a turnip”? Well she can! I am nowhere as good as her at stashing away money but I am pretty savvy when it comes to shopping. It doesn’t take a lot of money or fancy ingredients to put a flavorful, nutritious meal with love on the family table. Growing up our budget was tight and I joke with my mom and tell her we had hamburger meat 1000 ways (but we really didn’t) she was able somehow manage a home with 9 acres of land, work full time and put wonderful meals on the table every night.
With the help of my mom I started cooking when I was around 12~Southern Style Comfort Foods that anyone can cook with ingredients that are easy to find and usually already in the pantry. I love to cook and bake and have to do so on a budget and I love sharing my stories and recipes.
Nothing fancy ’round here….just great recipes that real Southern moms cook .
I would love it if you could sign up for my newsletter and get new posts, recipes and stories delivered directly into your inbox.
