First of all “WELCOME” to all newcomers to the site. We are very happy to have you here and hope you enjoy the camaraderie of this page, the recipes, tips and Southern thangs! We have people from all over the world on this site and everyone is welcome here. Your input and continued participation helps us at The Southern Lady Cooks to know what kind of recipes you like and try our best to give you good Southern recipes along with other recipes we think you might enjoy. We are very diversified with our cooking.
Feel free to “share” my recipes to Facebook, Pinterest, Twitter and other internet sites by using the share buttons you will find under every post. My recipes are under copyright laws and not to be copied and pasted onto the internet or other sites. By “sharing” the correct way this gives the link to anyone interested in viewing the recipe and gives me credit for my own work. Feel free to print for your own use anytime. Just click on the little printer icon at the end of each recipe. The printer icon allows you to remove the photo and any text you don’t want and print only the recipe. Thank you so much for your continued cooperation in this matter.
Now, I want to discuss some other issues with you and I need your help in these matters. This paragraph is for Facebook followers only. If you follow my site on Facebook, you are probably not seeing all my posts. Facebook has cut way back on showing posts to the people who “Like” our pages. They are trying to make us pay for advertising. Most days I put up 4 posts for your convenience on Facebook. I post a “Good Morning” post at 5:00 a.m. each morning. Then, I post 3 recipes during the day. The last post is usually in the evening around 8:00 p.m. I try to post something around 4:00 or 4:30 that might help you to decide what’s for dinner. So many have told me they enjoy getting ideas for dinner meals. If you just “Like” my page on Facebook, there is no guarantee you will see my posts on there anymore. To keep me active in your news feed, you need to be active on the Facebook page. Please click “Like” under each new post, hit the “share” button and make a “comment” even if you just say “Yes” or “Shared” or post a smiley face to keep me in your news feed. I get e-mails daily from fans saying they have not seen my posts in a while on Facebook. I want to keep you all and hate that this is happening to both of us. Thank you so much for your cooperation in this matter. I love interacting with you on the blog and Facebook and try very hard to answer your questions and let you know I see your comments.
The following is for all fans on The Southern Lady Cooks. You can sign up to get notifications each time I post a new recipe on the website. Just look on the left hand side of any page on the website and enter your e-mail address where it says “Get and e-mail when new recipes are posted”. This is for new recipes only! We have over 18,000 people who never miss a new recipe because they receive an e-mail telling them a new recipe is up on the site.
If you are searching for a particular recipe on the website, look on the right hand side of any page and click on the food group you are searching for such as “Cakes”, “Salads”, “Crock Pot Meals” etc. and you will get a list of all recipes on the site in each category.

We have recently had some issues with the website and continue to work constantly to keep it up and running. We have grown so big, we are having to downsize some photos, delete some old comments and work everyday to give you a greater experience. If you see a red background on a recipe, please know we have not posted it that way and it is a technical issue. We appreciate you letting us know these things, too.
My girls, Anne Parker and Leigh Harper have joined me on the site. They are much more technically inclined than I am and have been a wonderful addition to help “Mama” both in the kitchen and on the internet. Thank you for welcoming them like the true Southerners and wonderful fans that I have found you to be. They have sites of their own. If you love horses check out their site: On The Rodeo Road. If you like a good laugh and some healthy recipes, check our their site: The Southern Twins. These girls are a “hoot” and being the mother of twins has been an experience!
Lastly, I just want to thank everyone on this site for being so supportive. Some of you have been here since I started in 2008! I never dreamed it would grow as big as it has. I appreciate you all very much, I appreciate every comment and every time you try one of my recipes. You all make this site successful and worthwhile. Thank you, thank you. I hope this post has helped you to be able to navigate the site and understand why you are not receiving all my posts on Facebook, too. I hope you have a wonderful St. Patrick’s Day on Monday and your week ahead is a great one.
Love and hugs,
