"When it was time to cook a holiday dinner, my mother always pulled out this cook book. So many of the recipes in this book shape my childhood and the traditions I hold so dearly. When I was 23 years old, I was passed down my great grandmother's copy of this cook book (who was born in Monroe, Louisiana. Her favorite recipes are stained with little spots of oil or butter. I love flipping through the pages and seeing all the wonderful recipes. My personal favorite is the Corn Bread dressing and the Cowboy cookies."
I love being southern...just love it. Southern food is made with such love and such history. It's all about entertaining and making your family feel like nothing but the best will do. From Soiree's to Cotillions, these recipes have been prepared and served with rave reviews! We have passed through Monroe for years, traveling from Dallas back to Jackson. Once you hit Shreveport, next stop is Monroe, then Vicksburg...and finally home to Jackson.
