But I really wanted to sit down and take a minute to tell you how much I appreciate you. I still sometimes wonder how it’s possible that I have a cookbook – make that two cookbooks!
But it is possible. Because of you.
Y’all are the ones who visit my blog. Y’all are the ones who cook my recipes. Y’all are the ones who bought my first book (so they let me make another one – HOLLA!) Y’all are the ones who comment and email and remind me why I love feeding people so much.
So, thank you. Thank you from the bottom of bare feet to the top of my nappy, curly head.
OK, about this book!

And there are tons of photos and stories too! Here’s a little excerpt from the Blackberry Cobbler:
Nanny lived on a dirt road and had a big ol’ bramble of wild blackberry bushes right by her driveway. She’d send me out with a quart-size mason jar to pick berries whenever she wanted to cook up something sweet. I was taught at a young age to be mindful of snakes in places like that so I wasn’t too alarmed when a baby rattlesnake slithered by my bare foot. Being about 8-years old at the time, I thought he was pretty neat so I scooped him up, tossed him in my mason jar and flew up to the house to show Nanny. Well, Nanny threw me, that jar and the snake off the porch and tried to knock me into next Tuesday with her straw broom. She told me to get back down the drive and get her some blackberries and if I ever tried to bring another serpent into her house she’d cut my behind! I believe she would have too! Ever since that day I can’t help but think of her and smile anytime I see blackberries.OK, you can order online two ways: on Amazon or at Quail Ridge Press (my publisher). I get a little more of the pie when you buy it straight from QRP but I’m an Amazon Prime member myself so I understand if you’d rather buy the book at Amazon!
Click here to order from Quail Ridge Press (a little better for me)
Click here to order from Amazon (might be better for you and that’s OK with me!)
p.s.... I see that Amazon might be sold out right now because the link says ships in 2-5 weeks (sold out?! YASSSS!) but I know Quail Ridge has books in stock.
Anyway, thank you again for being on this journey with me. I love all y'all to pieces!
