Carrie on Lee Woodruff’s Blog

February 4th, 2013 by admin

Carrie was asked to write a little piece for Lee Woodruff’s blog. She shares 3 family recipes, her first experiences in the kitchen, and stories of growing up surrounded by food made with love:

When I got my first griddle – beautiful black iron with a little moat around the edges – I whipped up just about anything I could get my hands on – producing strange concoctions. I’d sweep the refuse into the little trench and dip my finger in to lap up the crispy bits. Shortly thereafter, I thought it was necessary to throw a dinner party for my dolls.  Setting them up at the table, I served a meal of carrots and cold soup (for those interested it’s a very simple recipe: water, salt, and pepper); I had decided it was the perfect meal for us ladies.

When my father makes oatmeal it isn’t just breakfast; it is his way of saying, “here, baby-girl, I love you.” Making a meal is how I attach myself to the people I love.

We’ve got 3 more episodes of Big City Grits waiting to be edited, and other exciting news for the Fall.

Hope everyone has been having a great summer with lots of watermelon!

  1. Hey! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in trading links or maybe guest authoring a blog article or vice-versa? My blog discusses a lot of the same subjects as yours and I think we could greatly benefit from each other. If you might be interested feel free to shoot me an email. I look forward to hearing from you! Excellent blog by the way!
