Do you love sassy, southern food? If so, pull up a chair and sit a spell. 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...the type of food that will rise up and slap you silly! So, let's dig in!
I'm so tickled you found my little corner of the web. I'm a firm believer that cooking should be simple and fun, so sometimes I take shortcuts that will make your life easier.
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 several are unapologetically cooked with butter. (Now, that's sassy!)
What may surprise you is that I have over 50 Southern Vegetarian Recipes on my blog for anyone following a vegetarian lifestyle.
I only share dishes I make for family and friends so you'll never see anything fussy or complicated. My husband, son, and daughter-in-law are my greatest taste testers...and biggest fans. 🙂 Oh, and I can't forget my wiener dog...Mr. Reesey Cup!
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.
I also taught elementary and high school students for 25 years, and retired as the Distance Learning Facilitator at my school. After retiring, I decided to fulfill my dream of designing 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. If you look closely at the picture above, you'll see our blue mountains peaking over the sunflowers in the background.
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!
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. 🙂
Have a SASSY day!
