Shrimp, Collards & Grits Book Series

A Southern cookbook is a family treasure.

Cookbooks quickly become family keepsakes with each one reminding us of a certain time and place where we purchased the book or perhaps it was a gift from a dear friend and the book is a reminder of your friendship. Many of my cookbooks are dog-eared and splattered from years of use.  One can tell my favorite recipes by how messy and stained some of the pages have become.

Every time I pick up a copy of my original Shrimp, Collards and Grits I am immediately transported to my home on the salt marshes of the Beaufort River. That’s where I first cooked my now famous Strawberry-Rhubarb Cobbler with a cinnamon aroma that permeated the house as it cooked its way to a golden, bubbly brown.

January 2021 will mark 10 years since that original book was launched during the Beaufort Tricentennial year 2011. Now they are much sought-after collector’s items and sold on Amazon for outrageous prices.  Each of my first 6 books is now out of print.

Currently we are offering our latest title, Southern Traditions. It is my hope that you will enjoy it as much as I enjoyed writing it.  May it give you a taste of life below the Mason-Dixon Line is this very authentic, special place we affectionately call the Lowcountry.
