Welcome To My Kitchen


Hey, Ya’ll!

I’m Sam and welcome to my Southern Rustic Kitchen! Let me tell you a little bit about me. 

Ever since I was a little girl I have loved to cook and bake. It is something that has always inspired me. I would watch all of the wonderful chefs and cooks on all of the cooking channels and shows while visiting my aunt and uncle. My grandmother always let me help in the kitchen. We would always whip up some of her favorite meals. This is where I learned to cook everything from biscuits to desserts. She taught me how to make pastry for pies, gravies for any meal, how to whip egg whites by hand, how to sear meat, how to frost cakes, and everything in between.

Carrying that over into my young teen years, after my grandmother passed, my father stepped in and picked up where she left off in the kitchen. Not only did he continue to teach me how to cook, but he also taught me how to ride a 4-wheeler, saddle a horse, how to mend the fences as well as put them up, how to milk the cows, how to fish, how to plant and harvest crops, and everything that has to do with the farm life. So, for me, farm life was hard work but very fun. I enjoyed every minute of it. It taught me a lot about living, work ethics, putting in the work, and reaping the benefits of it. Now, keep in mind that I grew up on a farm and did a lot of work to help out my dad. Cooking and baking were calming to me. It taught me how to slow down and yet taught me to put just as much energy into my cooking and baking as I did for farming. 

My grandmother always said that “Good food is made with love from the heart”. My father always told me that ” a way to a person’s heart is through food” so creating and serving good food became my love language. Now my grandmother is gone and so is my father. I miss them both dearly, but they are always with me in the kitchen. So, the kitchen is where I feel most comfortable. I have learned all of the ins and outs of the kitchen, for the most part, and I love sharing all of my recipes with those I love, and that includes you. A lot of time, work, flour, and spices have gone into creating all of these tasty dishes. I am so excited to share with you all of the dishes I have created as well as meals that I’ve had growing up. From “From Scratch” meals to “Semi-homemade” I am here to show you, that you can make delicious meals at home. 

Now, I am Teaching my daughter to cook. Teaching her all the things that I learned growing up. So far, So good. She also enjoys being in the kitchen creating recipes in her own way, and this makes my heart happy. I hope these recipes inspire you to get in the kitchen and make or create some tasty meals for your family. 

So, Come join me in the kitchen and let’s make some delicious meals!
