I am Karen White. I grew up in a small rural community in Centeal Florida. My love of food and cooki started here. I spent many days tending to chickens, planting and harvesting vegetables. We spent lots of time in the Gulf of Mexico fishing, and out the back of our house.. Catching the odd alligator along the way! My family enjoyed entertains and it seemed we were always preparing for weekend long BBQs. My parents instilled in me, at a very young age, to ensure the food we eat was fresh, local, and homemade.
I now live in a lovely house called Newton Grange with my family. Husband Paul and 3 gorgeous girls. Elizabeth, Amelia and Alexandra. So I will be sharing what we like to eat, cook and experiment with. We enjoy cooking all types of food, curing and smoking. Enjoy and should you try any of my recipes, please tweet your pictures to @KarenL109
