I’m Mrs. Gridiron and I am thrilled that you have found my blog! This little adventure has been a long time coming and after years of encouragement of friends and family, I’ve decided to share my story and the four F’s in my life with each of you – from homemade to hashmarks, this is a Gridiron Wife’s guide to, food, family, fellowship and football.
Food, entertaining and cooking have been an enormous part of my life from the very beginning. My mom was truly an amazing cook and my parents entertained often. When my mom was the hostess it was a special event. She was old school and knew just how to bring everything together to create a moment where time stood still and guests were present in their fellowship. My mom always made a point to know her guest’s likes and dislikes and as a result there were little personal touches throughout the entire evening. I’m sure many went unnoticed (as my mom would have wanted), but they were there to help in creating a very special evening. This type of entertaining is a lost art and largely viewed as out of style. As an homage to my mom – who passed away many years ago – I would like to reintroduce it to you, and show how it can be done with a modern twist. I am so excited to share my passion and mother’s gift through this blog, while reconnecting with her. I am honored and humbled to share my kitchen, my recipes, my family, my memories, and my mom with each of you!
In addition to this blog and after years in sales and advertising, I’ve launched a new home cooked meal delivery and catering business where I offer all-natural, made from scratch, delicious meals delivered right to your doorstep. Weekly options include main dish, salad, bread, dessert, breakfast, snack and ice cream. Check out our weekly menu here.
When I am not cooking or entertaining, I love spending time with my husband, “Coach”, son, “Lil Hatt” and our bonus son, “Maximus” who is in his final year of college.
During football season you can find my son and I front and center under the Friday night lights cheering for the Lake Highlands Wildcats.
On Saturdays we mostly cheer for, sometimes yell at, the LSU Tigers (Unless Coach is off, then we might cheer for the Kansas State Wildcats!) or watching Maximus in his final college football season (sniff, sniff).
