Ultimate Blog Party 2011

It's time to celebrate blogland with the Ultimate Blog Party hosted at 5 Minutes for Mom.  This is a great opportunity to enjoy some fantastic blogs.  I hope you  find something you like and keep coming back.  I am wife to a great guy and  mom to two really awesome kids.  I also teach advanced geography at one of our county high schools.  My kids are super involved in football, lacrosse, basketball, cheerleading, Girl Scouts and gymnastics.  We are contantly on the go and I try really hard to stay out of the drive thru at dinner time. 

Love Being In My Southern Kitchen is where I share my kitchen and craft adventures.  I LOVE to cook and I am very proud of my family's southern roots.  Many of my fondest memories include special foods my grandmothers or my mom made for us.   Recently I have been trying to cook more from scratch and reduce the amount of processed foods my family eats, just like we did growing up. 

Several of my favorite posts are below.  Enjoy!

Peanut Butter Granola
Cocoa-Almond Biscotti
Jalapeno Pepper Jelly
Vanilla Almond Cupcakes with Buttercream Frosting
Mexican Black Bean and Spinach Pizza
Meatball Subs
Shrimp and Grits

Thanks for stopping by and joining the party!
