About



Hi! I am Kay, publisher of Cooking with K.  I love all things Southern and inspiring the next generation to enjoy cooking from recipes that have been passed down through the years.

I have had a real passion for cooking that was passed down by my Mother, Fern Sewell. In her kitchen, everyone would gather to talk and share life's happenings while she kept on cooking.  

Mother had all the styles of a true southern cook from serving a tall glass of sweet tea, fried chicken, mashed potatoes and cream gravy to all kinds of field peas with Southern cornbread.  It wasn't uncommon for her to serve the traditional southern meal consisting only of vegetables and served up with a pan of Southern cornbread.

You might say, my Southern cooking roots run deep in my style of cooking.  There is a broad range of cooking influence from my Father's family living in Georgia and my Mother's family living in Texas.  The memories of her recipes she created and prepared for me as a child, and shared with me as a young newlywed, are memories that I still have today. As I showcase my family's Southern recipes, my recipes, and my children's recipes, I want to leave as a legacy for my grandchildren to have.

As I write this blog,  I know God orders all the plans for my life. The most important part of my life is to be so close to the Lord that I immediately know when I can't hear His heart beat. Jim, my husband, is the man that helps me keep this in place. It's the simple things that matter. Live for Jesus, Love your Family, Care for Others, Build His Church!

  2. Saw the photo and recipe for Apple cobbler and thought it looked great! My question was on the top layer the photo looks like circles of pastry and the recipe says to use crossed strips. Am I mistaken or how did you make the top ?

  3. Dear Kay,
    I just love your site! I hadn't made beef roast in an oven in so long that I had to look online for a recipe to remind me of some of the details. Now I'm drooling over your beef stroganoff recipe, thinking of making that next. Your beef roast is just like I grew up with in Michigan. I made beef stroganoff for my kids that grew up in the 70's - 80's, it was pretty much the same recipe. Since 1998 my husband and children (the ones that aren't in MI) have lived in NC. I find the South to hold a lot of my memories from my childhood as well as new and interesting things to learn! The one common thread that never changes is a love for God and a life made possible through His Son Jesus Christ. I'm so happy to find you site which acknowledges Him and good old fashioned comfort food!
