Southern Family Magazine

In the January/February 2010 issue of Southern Family Magazine, I began doing the recipe section titled Southern Recipes. Southern Family Magazine is a local North Alabama publication that is distributed in the TN Valley. It may also be purchased online and delivered to you quarterly. Check it out, and check out the Recipe Archives for previous publications. Thank you, Shannon Phillips, for opportunity to be part of this publication.
