How Did This Blog Get Its Name?
Quiche My Grits® is a southern thing. Ever heard of ‘Kiss my Grits‘ which was said by Flo on Mel’s Diner? Well, substitute ‘quiche’ for kiss and you’ve got a fun little pun with a whole lotta sass!
Let’s Have Some Fun!
I’m a firm believer that cooking should be simple and fun!
Most of my recipes can be made in less than an hour and many are under 30 minutes from start to finish. All of my dishes are full of flavor, and some are unapologetically cooked with butter. (Now, that’s sassy!)
I learned all about the restaurant business when I designed and operated a local cafe’ with a couple of friends. It inspired me to try new things, ultimately branching out to cater weddings and events.
Operating a restaurant gave me the experience and knowledge to design this blog. Although we no longer manage the Cafe’, it’s still in business serving many of the recipes I created.
For kicks and giggles, I also taught elementary and high school students for 25 years, and recently retired as a Distance Learning Facilitator. After retiring, I decided to chase my dream of creating a blog that could teach others how to easily make southern dishes…with a sassy twist.
My southern heritage is a big part of who I am. The Blue Ridge mountains are my home, which is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.
Growing up, I was heavily influenced by my mother and grandmothers, who were as different as night and day. Granny Tag was a city girl, while Granny Mac grew up in the country. Both were cooks by trade and taught me all about being sassy in the kitchen!
Have a SASSY day!
