About Rosie

I’m busy wife and mother that enjoys cooking, baking, and entertaining. I was born and raised in Seattle Washington( and I still reside here ;-D ) I was raised  by my mother, and her family. I grew up as the oldest child with many responsibilities, and cooking was one of them. I started cooking at the age of five, and by the time I was 12 I was making full course meals.

 

Why did I start blogging and etc?

I was fortunate enough to have my mother teach me how to cook. Not only did she teach me how to cook, but she taught me how to cook the old fashioned way, from scratch.  A lot of ladies weren’t as fortunate as I was. I wanted to create a blog that people could refer to whenever they wanted to whip up some good old fashioned and modern southern and soul food. When Creating my blog, I wanted to make cooking and baking as easy as possible. Instead of being an average blog, with just pictures, and recipes, I decided to share recipe videos as well.

 

What does this Seattle lady know about southern cooking?!

A lot actually. My cooking style is very southern because, it’s what I grew up on! My Grandparents were from Baton Rouge, Louisiana, and I simply inherited their southern roots. My grandmas recipes were passed down to my mother and aunts, and eventually made their way down to me.
