    Gumbo

    Gumbo

    Gumbo, the official cuisine of Louisiana, is a thick stew which consists primarily of a strongly-flavored stock, meat or shellfish, a thickener, and the Cajun/Creole "holy trinity" ― celery, bell peppers, and onions. It's sometimes hard to get your hands on a great gumbo recipe, so we took a cooking class to immerse ourselves in this spicy goodness!

Great Podcast

I lived in Texas for ten years, and this podcast reminds me of all the good parts of the South. If you live in the South now or used to, I know you will enjoy it! The two sisters make a great team.

Deep South at its Best!!

As a born & bred Southerner, I’m a little biased when it comes to what we Southerners truly consider to be the real deal. Look no further! These two lovely ladies are masterful and educating their listeners about the beauty, charm (and sometimes quirkiness!) of Southern Culture. Don’t waste another minute looking elsewhere! I couldn’t be more honored to call these ladies friends and true Southern Sisters!! Love you two!!

Charming

I look forward to each episode. The ladies make me feel welcome at their table. I love engaging in the conversations of southern charm and traditions.
