My gourmet foods can be described as "decadent with no apologies" and "bursts of flavor." Try the specialty BBQ sauce -- a balance of tang, heat, and sweet. Other products include the Copper Pot Rub, Moonshine Ranch Crackers, and Moonshine Banana Jelly. Delicious, yet mellow... try them all!

You don’t have to have a recipe to make a meal, there is always something in the pantry to keep a body from starving; and that cooking mistakes are not always disasters.
I was born in Alabama without a banjo on my knee. I was raised in Tennessee and do not smoke a corncob pipe. I am the middle child of parents that have been together since the evolution of mankind. My father was a railroad man. My mother was a stay at home mom who at the age of seventy decided to be a chicken shepherdess! We will leave that story for later. When I was six months old, I started walking, talking and climbing. I knew at an early age there was a lot to do and little time to get it done. It was with my Grandmother’s influence that my mom raised me to be who I am today. I grew up with Dr. Goat, Crybaby Calf, Jesus loves me, respect your elders and little girls sit with their legs together. Snoopy was a yellow floppy eared dog that I slept with. I was allowed candy cigarettes, sweet wax lips and tiny wax cola bottles filled with sweet syrup. It was enough sugar that a child with a pair of P.F. Flyers could run fast and jump high. Due to a series of unfortunate events, I witnessed the iron lung at work. I learned very early in life that a loud chuckle in Church would get you a pinch in that tender place under the arm. I have a scar on my left arm from the chicken pox vaccine. Which again is a story all by itself! Surprisingly as I get older, the scar has slid down my arm and is hanging onto my elbow.
Since the ripe old age of nine, I have loved to cook. I immersed myself in cooking and have yet to come up for air. I enjoy playing with all those spices and herbs. My only “formal training” has been smack dab in the middle of my mother’s Deep South kitchen. My mother was easy about letting me explore the food and cooking world. She taught me that you don’t have to have a recipe to make a meal, there is always something in the pantry to keep a body from starving; and that cooking mistakes are not always disasters. Mother could always make cooking fun; after all it isn’t every day that you are shown how to make a naked chicken dance into the pot. I don’t think that counts as playing with your food, does it?
Because infinity goes in all directions, I have learned that love can come around again. It was just a few years ago that I met the man of my dreams. He is handsome, with eyes so blue it could make you loose all train of thought. He is intelligent and humorous and he liked my cooking. DR is the one I give credit too for gently pushing me to write cookbooks and create my gourmet foods. He believed in my talent and me. So with “Ole Blue Eyes” and a leap of faith here I am.
Travel with me and embark on an extraordinary culinary journey and discover the tantalizing elements of taste and irresistible allure of “Cooking At Top of The World”.
My inspiration for developing these foods was the chance to work with fun and unusual products; they are simple, tasty and collectively satisfying many palates. When I started this culinary project, it was a taste test all the way. Creating the perfect amount of seasoning and moonshine. *Not all of my recipes have moonshine in them.
I have soooo many recipes swirling around in my head, and I do love a challenge! Strange but true, I dream a lot of my recipes. I wake up in the middle of the night and write them in a book that I keep beside my bed. Some are keepers and some are a possible to add to another recipe at a later date. I also have added a few old family recipes that I would like to share with you.
