About

Hey, y’all! My name is Ronnie and it is my goal to bring you the best Southern-inspired recipes, reviews, and restaurants from the South and beyond. I strive to be one of the best Southern food blogs, leave us a comment and let us know how we are doing.

Born and Raised in the South

I was born and raised in the South (South Carolina), and as a child, I developed my love for Southern classic food.  Growing up, I mostly stuck to the traditional Southern cuisine that my mom and family loved to cook. As I got older, I wanted to branch out into other ethnic foods and discovered that I loved their food just as much.

Why I Love to Cook Southern Food

I loved learning to cook from my Mom and my Dad. Dad loved cooking breakfast meals such as Sausage Gravy. While he would cook that, Mom would make homemade biscuits to go with it. I can remember it being Sunday morning before church, Mom listening to Southern Gospel music while she and Dad were cooking breakfast.

Dad also loved the outdoors and fishing was one of the big things that we did. He loved to cook fried fish that we had just caught. He was truly great at it. We also enjoy other fruits of our labor such as wild game meat like fresh Vension from the field.

Mom also loved to bake, and one thing she made a lot was Homemade Sourdough bread. I enjoyed it when she made it and can remember getting a slice of it as it was hot out of the oven.

Mom made all the traditional Southern Cusine foods that we loved to eat such as Mac and Cheese, Southern-style green beans, Creamed-Corn, Egg Salad, Deviled Eggs, homemade Jelly, and cornbread.

My love of Southern food shows through my passion for cooking Southern Food, doing reviews, and visiting restaurants along the way.

Eating dinner at The Cheesecake Factory

I live in South Carolina so sharing the food from my state is one of my favorite things to do. I love sharing food from the Low Country regions to the corners of South Carolina State that were inspired by Appalachian cuisine. I love sharing the history of Southern food with my audience as well.

I Love Being Outdoors Gardening, Hunting, Fishing, Hiking, Golfing, and Camping

When I am not cooking, you can find me outdoors among God’s creations. I love to plant and grow food (vegetables, trees, berries). Learning more about gardening and farming is one of my passions.

Lettuce I grew in my garden

I enjoy being outdoors year-round. I am an avid outdoorsman and I love camping, hiking, and playing golf (regular golf and disc golf).

I consider myself a conservationist and I love to hunt and fish. There is nothing more organic than fresh game or fish that you took and processed yourself.

Family First

I love spending time with my family whether that is at our church, on a vacation or short road trip, or just hanging around the house.
