  1. do you send out daily or weekly e-mails if so how do i get them ….

    • You can sign up to receive new recipes only on any page on the website. Look on the left side of any page where it says “Receive new recipes right in your mailbox”. You click that and put in your e-mail address. You won’t get recipes posted on Facebook daily. You will only get new recipes when they are posted.

  2. does anyone out there know the recipe for oreo balls?

  3. When I was young my mom made a cake she called “Lemon Cheese Cake”. It is an impossible recipe to find. She made a regular yellow cake but the frosting was one that is nowhere to be found. It is actually like a syrup made from lemons, lemon zest and sugar. It soaked into the cake which was always 5 layers and unbelieveably delicious. Does anyone happen to know of this frosting recipe?

  4. Hi Judy, I was wanting to know the name of the dessert you have on the right side of the page for your favorites it looks yummy and i can’t seem to find it. Thanks,Betty

  5. I would like some receipes for butter rolls. Thank you in advance!

  6. love the blogs,cant wait to read them every day…thanks,THE CHICKEN LADY!!!


  8. Hello! I enjoy following you on facebook, however, I believe that my account has been hacked and some of the pages that I subscribed to, such as yours, I can no longer access. Someone told me that there is a hacker/virus that will leave insulting remarks under your account/log-in, that appear to be coming from you, and this is causing friends to loose friends and/or subscriptions to pages, etc. I fear that this may be what happened with your page. I always enjoyed sharing your pictures and recipes on my page, but I can’t seem to do that anymore.
    Please know that I would never say or do anything of an insulting nature. I sincerely hope to be able to fully enjoy your page again in the very near future.
    Blessings to you and yours and thanks for all of the wonderfully sweet reminders of the amazing south that I grew up in! I miss it so!

    • Hi Beth, I have not received anything insulting from you. I totally understand and hope you get it worked out. I am told if you make comments on my Facebook posts and “Like” things often I will stay in your newsfeed but if you don’t participate on the page, you won’t see me anymore. Hugs, Judy

  9. I was wondering if you have a recipe for “syrup cake”. My grandmother used to make this when I was a little girl but there is NO recipe!!!

  10. Hi Ms Judy, my name is Lynda. I have lived in The South for 54 years (Florida) and will be moving to Southwestern North Carolina in about a month. I just found your site today and I am in awe. The blogs, recipes, tips, everything I ever needed all in one place! And I love the ‘Southern Thangs’. I learned to cook from my mama and Nana. I have a lot of their recipes, but over the past hour or so I have been able to ‘fill in some blanks’. I’ve already shared this with my ‘sister’. Thank you so much for what you do.

  11. I was wondering my mom used to make a orange cookie with Mac nuts or white choco chips in it I have been looking everywhere for the recipe. But everywhere I look I try it and it’s not the same. Can you help me please. She has past away and I would love to make them for my kids. Thank you for your time and have a blessed day!

  12. hi I tried to email you and it did not work just checking on your email address…thanks

  13. Hello Judy, My name is Gwen and I am from Alabama and I just love your blog. The pictures, the recipes and the southern charm is great. I have my own blog Mybestcookbook.info. I am trying to get it going but not much luck. If you have time could you give me some tips, so that my might grow. Thanks for any help you can give me. Gwen the Southern Cook Lady from Alabama. grich.1460@gmail.com

    • Hi Gwen, Thank you for being a part of my site and your great comment. I checked out your blog. Thanks for posting my recipe, too. Your blog is beautiful and I am sure it will take off and have lots of people. It just takes time and lots of effort and keep on plugging away. Commenting on other blogs always brings you traffic. I used to check out all kinds and comment. Good luck to you.

  14. I made the Buttermilk Pies and OMG they were the best thing ever.

  15. I love aprons. My mom had some of the prettiest ones and I can just see her now in one. Good memories. Linda McD

  16. Good morning Judy! Thank you for including Lilac & Lavender in your ‘New Favorites’ list :)

    There is a post I think you’d be very interested in, as it includes a documentary from 1940 about my great-grandparents (and grandma at 7yrs old!) living in Kentucky.

    The documentary can be accessed through a link in ‘My Grandmother’s Mother’: http://lilac-n-lavender.blogspot.com/2011/09/my-grandmothers-mother.html

    Hope you have a great weekend! ~ Megan

  17. I am so honored to be included in this group! Thank you for pointing me to the Southern Food Bloggers group!!

  18. I would love to have that apron. I do not own an apron and I am always getting things all over me. I love the pattern and red is one of my favorite colors and one I decorate with. It’s a very cheery apron. Love your website!
