First of all, I would like to thank everyone on my site for being so patient during the time we are making some changes to The Southern Lady Cooks website. I appreciate each and every one of my fans and thank you for being a part of this site.
Now, I would like to introduce you to my twin daughters, Leigh Harper and Anne Parker. How about those double Southern names folks?? Click photos to enlarge. Anne Parker on left, Leigh Harper on right.
Leigh and Anne will be joining my site to help me with all the work that goes into keeping The Southern Lady Cooks up and running to full capacity. They will be doing some advertising in hopes that we can eventually put out a cookbook with my recipes and we will be posting some healthy recipes for you, too. They are very much into their health and the paleo lifestyle but do have to eat their Mama’s cookin’ when they come to visit! So, we will have some healthy recipes from them and some not so healthy recipes from me! I have to admit they have me eating more healthy than I used to but I still love Southern cookin’ and will always be a Southern cook.
I would like to tell you a little about Leigh and Anne so that you will get to know them better. Leigh works for The Horse magazine in Lexington, Kentucky and Anne is an office manager for a livestock company. They have their own website, On The Rodeo Road and Facebook page about rodeo and both girls are into barrel racing. They also have their own company called Retro Rodeo Publishing. Believe me, these girls are active and always have been since they were small children. They both run and work out, ride horses, and keep up a six acre farm where they live with their Australians, Spur Dog and Rusty. The four quarter horses, Wheels, Fancy, Girlfriend and Roanie round out the family. Their weekends are spent traveling with their horses and dogs to barrel racing competitions. They love to cook, too!
This is where they got their love of horses growing up on the farm in Gravel Switch, Kentucky.
This is what they do with horses today:
Just a few photos to get you acquainted with Anne and Leigh and hope that you will help me to welcome them to The Southern Lady Cooks. Feel free to leave comments and questions for any of us. Mama is proud of her girls and happy to have the help on the site. Like all Southern families, we are a very close, talk on the phone several times a day and visit often. I love going to the farm and helping with the chores. We all love to cook together and have so much fun grocery shopping for ingredients and coming home to try and experiment with a new recipe. I will be posting most of the recipes on the site and the girls will be working behind the scenes to make this a better spot for you to visit and get new ideas for your cooking needs. We hope to do a newsletter in the future and post some favorite products for you to check out as well. Thank you so much for your continued participation in the site.
