I’m Lisa, a first generation Southerner. While I was born and raised in Mississippi, I wasn’t raised on Southern food. Then I met and fell in love with a boy who grew up eating his Grandmama’s fried chicken and his Mamaw’s biscuits and gravy. I realized I had a thing or two to learn about Southern cooking.
