To laugh often and much, to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children, to earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure the betrayal of false friends, to appreciate beauty, to find the best in others, to leave the world a bit better, whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition, to know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.

BUTTERMILK CHESS PIE....A BITE OF SOUTHERN CHARM!
Time to relax, party and escape the daily grind.
Estelle's is a Southern Kitchen.
You can drop by anytime and have a glass of sweet tea and a piece of pie.
Just like my Mother's Mississippi kitchen......
What's the difference between LIKE and LOVE?
A good chess pie
a touch of lemon!
