Driving has been a major theme for my family this summer. We kicked off the season in celebration of my older teen gaining her learner’s permit. I’ll admit that I’m still taken aback by her independence in earning it - I was in no hurry for her to drive. Her driver’s manual provided a great deal of rules for the road, but there are certain courtesies that seem to be forgotten in…Continue

There’s definitely an art to living in the South. Moss dripping from ancient trees and bright white cotton fields being ruffled by the breeze paint a fetching picture. So why shouldn’t our vocabulary be just as artistically resplendent?
Last week, I had lunch with three…

Being a Southern girl, making biscuits from scratch is like a right of passage. In my family the tradition of making biscuits from scratch was passed from my great-grandmother to my grandmother and many of my aunts learned to make them by watching my grandmother. I once asked my grandmother to give me the recipe for her biscuits and she told me she couldn’t give me the recipe. She said I’d have to watch her to learn. I know I watched her hundreds of times mixing the ingredients for the…Continue

St. Simons, Georgia is an ideal destination for a guys’ trip, especially among golf enthusiasts like my husband and son. But it is an equally perfect spot for a ladies’ gathering. Earlier this summer I spent a long weekend there with my off-to-college daughter and know that, as her dorm move-in day looms large, I am truly grateful to have had the time to share our SSI favorites.
One of our first stops on each trip is to the GJ…Continue
Summer burned the peaches
We stopped to swipe
In Chilton County.
And fell into my open hand,
The weight of the sun,
Russet, pink, and orange,
Hazy with down.
You bit into the cleft,
And I stole a…Continue
I’m a South Carolina girl, born and raised and I’m very proud that South Carolina ranks 2nd in peach production behind California which is 1st. Georgia, aka, the “Peach State” ranks 3rd and has some pretty darn good peaches as well!
Many great recipes come to mind when I think of this fruit. Peach cobbler, peach pie, fried peach pies, peach ice cream, the list goes on. Frankly, I don’t even have to eat peaches wrapped in sugar, I can just eat them alone as a snack because they are…Continue
