My name is Virginia and I’m from Georgia. I got my name and my love for Southern cooking from my grandmother. I became interested in traditional, a.k.a. “real food”, shortly after I moved to health-food-land (Los Angeles) and I’m slowly learning to integrate the two. I believe food should be wholesome and lick-the-beaters good. My lifelong dream is to meet Dolly Parton, and although I have a pretty fantastic one, I promise to never use the word “hubby” on this blog.
