Happy May 17th! It’s week 20 of #LivingLovingWriting and it’s also the week where phase 2 of our COVID-19 quarantine begins! I don’t know about y’all, but I am super excited for things to get back to normal.
What I thought I would talk about this week is the Starving for Southern food series blog. If you have read any of the books in this series, then you know each chapter has a food item mentioned, and then at the end is the recipe. For the paperbacks, it’s printed in the book, but for kindle readers, I created an online food blog where there is a hyperlink at the end of each chapter that will take you to the recipe. I received this question via email this week, so I thought reminding y’all might be important.
There are currently 102 recipes on the food blog. You can access them by clicking through each chapter, or you can head on over to www.starvingforsouthern.com. Here you can browse them all, search individually, or scroll through each category. I did my best to make sure they were tagged, but if you don’t find what you are looking for in one, then maybe search another. I hope you like the blog, it was definitely time consuming, but I did love it. I also plan to add to it over the years, so if you are following, then I hope you’ll be pleasantly surprised when new recipes hit your inbox.
Here is what you will find on the ABOUT page:
This blog is for my readers.
Growing up in the south, food in our home was and is a big part of our culture. Many weekends were spent walking the aisles at the farmers market looking for the best produce, sitting with my mother shelling peas, or eating strawberry shortcake. My favorite meal was my mother’s chicken and dumplings, my aunt always made the best pound cake, and there was never a shortage of sweet tea.
Today, I continue to walk the aisles of different farmers markets, but I take my boys. Together we pick what we want for dinner, and we celebrate living in a place where there is an abundance of fresh produce and seafood. I hardly ever go anywhere empty handed (don’t you know, food is love) and my door is always open for visitors.
Most of these recipes are ones I’ve tweaked and retweaked over the years, but some are from friends and family, and others have found their way into my recipe book and I’m not sure where they originated. No matter how you found your way to Starving for Southern, I hope you’ll give the recipes a try and share them with someone you love.
QOTD: Should I make a separate paperback that includes all 102 recipes??? This might be a nice giveaway for preorders at my next book signing, what do you think?
