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

Mother had all the style of a true Southern cook.  She loved making a big pitcher of sweet tea and serving it with fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and cream gravy.  In the summer, we picked and canned all kinds of vegetables.  Her favorite meal was serving lady cream peas and chow chow relish with a bowl of sliced onions and tomatoes, and that would not be complete without a pan of Southern cornbread.   

I grew up in the piney woods of East Texas in the '50s and '60s.  The memories of her recipes she created and cooked for me as a child, and shared with me as a young newlywed, are memories that I still have today.  

These recipes are from Mother's recipe box, some of which are her originals, and some are from her friends and family.  When I know for sure, I will give credit to the source. Click the photo below to see her recipes.
