As a young lady, I was born and raised in the Midsouth. Things like the Mississippi Delta Queen, Memphis Blues, and "Soul Food" helped shape my life and my style of cooking. I attended Mississippi University for Women and recieved my Bachelor of Science Degree in Culinary Arts and Food Journalism. I worked in North Carolina at the beloved Biltmore Estate and gave it up to become a proud Air Force wife. Today, I travel to many different places, but I still remember my roots and the sweet tea and hospitality waiting for me there. I'd like to share my experiences with you and I hope you enjoy reading them on my blog, www.southernsimmerings.blogspot.com.
