Hi, I’m Laura, from Grand Rapids, Michigan, but I say y’all. After 4 years of college at High Point University in North Carolina, I developed a southern accent. Over the past 5 years the accent has faded a little bit. I call it my hint of southern.
Growing up my mom always taught me southern hospitality through entertaining and cooking for others. Baking and cooking have always been a way for me to relax when I get home from work. Now I get to share my love for food with y’all.
One of my fondest memories growing up was learning how to bake from my mom and grandmother. They showed me how to bake the best strawberry rhubarb pie and create mini cinnamon crust rolls from the extra dough. Each recipe brings me back to a certain time in my life…the smell of sautéed mushrooms, caramelized onions, or chocolate chip cookies.
Being southern is more than where you are from. A hint of southern is incorporating hospitality, food and charm into your life, while sharing it with others.
