Welcome to Quiche My Grits!

Do you love sassy, southern food? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Quiche My Grits is all about colorful food that’s fun to eat, and even more fun to make. It’s meant to be eye-catching, soulful, and delicious.

All of my recipes are full of flavor, and many are unapologetically cooked with butter. Now, that’s sassy! Most recipes can be made in less than an hour and many are under 30 minutes from start to finish. I only share dishes I make for my family and friends so you’ll never see anything fussy or complicated. Who has time for that?


Several years ago, I opened a local cafe’ with a couple of friends. It inspired me to try new things and spread my wings, ultimately branching out to cater weddings and events. Operating a restaurant also gave me the experience and knowledge to create this blog. Although we no longer operate the restaurant, it’s still in business serving some of the recipes I created years ago.

I also taught elementary and high school students for many years, and was the webmaster at my school. After recently retiring, I decided to fulfill my dream of designing a website that could teach others how to easily make southern dishes.

My southern heritage is a big part of who I am. 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 how to add a little ‘sass’ to every meal.

Speaking of sass, the name of this blog is a southern thang. Ever heard of Kiss my Grits? Well, substitute ‘quiche’ for kiss and you’ve got a fun little pun. šŸ™‚

  2. Hi Debi, our daughter and her husband has moved to Asheville in fact they just bought a house in Weaverville, N.C. They love to try new restaurants could you tell me the name of your cafe so I can tell them about it. Thank you and have a safe holiday!

    • Hi Judith! My friends and I opened a little place called the Mosaic Cafe years ago. It is still in business, but I went back to teaching so I haven’t been involved with it for a while. However, if you look at my Asheville tab on my website, I have over 85 restaurants listed that your daughter would love! Here’s the link: 85 Top Asheville Restaurants

  3. Do you have a cookbook?! If not…maybe soon??? ????

    • Hi Linda. Wow, what a compliment! I wrote a cookbook a while back, but it doesn’t have any pictures in it. Most of the recipes I’ve created for this blog are new, so maybe one day I’ll be able to have a beautiful new cookbook. Thanks so much for your generous compliment. It’s definitely a dream of mine!
