    My husband comes from Union, SC. I am from the west coast. I used your recipe for Peach Puddin and served it to him. As he was gobbling it I asked him, “Where do you think I got this recipe from?”. His immediate response was, “Southern Lady Cooks, ’cause only Southern Ladies know how to make this!”.
