Once upon a time...

Raised in the countryside of Mississippi, my mother and her siblings were taught how to prepare meals "from scratch" using wholesome ingredients. Recipes were passed down through "word of mouth"...never on paper.

As the siblings began to have children of their own, they instilled in us the importance of food preparation and remaining true to our Southern roots.

Sweet Southern Delights is a labor of love, born of hours spent in the kitchen with my mother and her siblings, chatting and passing along recipes.

I hope that you will join me in my love of all things Southern by enjoying the desserts that my family has been preparing with love for many years.
