Years of Experience

  • I'm the former owner and operator of a local Café that I designed with friends. Operating a restaurant gave me the experience and knowledge to create this blog. Although we no longer own the Café, it's still in business serving many of the recipes I originally created.
  • Being a Café owner inspired me to try new things, ultimately branching out to cater weddings and events. I've catered every type of party imaginable, and created elaborate themes and decor to enhance each space.
  • I've been a home cook for over 45 years, and although my roots are southern, I love to create and develop new recipes based on classic and familiar dishes.

What Readers Say...

Authentic Recipes

Everything I publish is straight from the heart. I handle the website design, writing, recipe development and cooking out of my very own kitchen.

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 I unapologetically cook with butter. (Now, that's sassy!)

Hungry? You can search for hundreds of my delicious dishes by visiting the Recipe Index. You'll find everything from newfangled ideas to Sassy Southern Classics!

Southern Roots

The Blue Ridge Mountains are my home, and constantly inspire me by their beauty and rich Appalachian history.

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!

How Did This Blog Get Its Name?

Quiche My Grits® is a southern thing. Ever heard of 'Kiss my Grits' that was made famous by Flo on the TV sitcom, Alice? Well, substitute 'quiche' for kiss and you've got a fun little pun with a whole lotta sass!
