As a southern woman, nothing speaks to me more than food.  The kitchen in my childhood home was our gathering place, a place to talk and a place to cook.  One of the first things friends were shown at our house was where the drinking glasses are and where the pot of sweet teas was kept.  A Southern staple – sweet tea and desserts like strawberry short cakes, cobblers, pies, cookies, and banana pudding made the perfect snack for my family and our guests.  There is nothing like a good meal and dessert from one’s home kitchen to make you feel loved and happy.


My name is Lorna Drach and this blog is my way to share some wonderful southern recipes and lots of fun family memories.  I am looking forward to sharing with you!  So grab a rocking chair, a glass of sweet tea, and get ready for some good southern foods.
