Secret Ingredients

As I was planning my wedding, which seems like so long ago, I ran across this Secret Ingredients site. I love cooking and I love the idea of having family recipes that have been passed down. There's something so sweet about looking at a recipe that your great grandmother hand wrote. I wanted so badly for someone, i.e. my mom :), to create one of the wedding designs and surprise me with it as a gift! Well the wedding kind of snuck up on us and there were so many other pressing issues on our minds that it was never done. I just stumbled upon this site again and I wanted to share it with you all! I am bound and determined to load up all of my favorite recipes in one of these babies! They also give you several pages to add in your favorite pics. What a cute idea! I love the heirloom cookbook, but it's a little pricey. Maybe something to go on my Christmas list??

Since we are on the subject of cooking, I thought I would share with you all a little obsession of mine, Mrs. Paula Deen! Now, I don't know about y'all (here comes the accent!), but I can't get enough of this woman. I love her accent, her hair, and the way she says "butta!" I secretly want to adopt her as my third grandmother! Do you think that would be a problem? I have been trying to get Aaron to look for jobs in Savannah in hopes that I may get a chance to meet her in passing!

Love and best dishes, from my kitchen to yours - Love it!

Okay, I'm going to need therapy for being the bad Mom that didn't make you that cookbook! I'll try to get one together for a Christmas present but I didn't say what year!!

What a great blog. I too love Paula Dean. I'm bad enough that I DVR her so I won't miss anything. I even go back and rewatch favorites (don't laugh it's really nice to watch and pause and rewind while I'm attempting to copy her recipes!)
