I’m a true native of Alabama, raised in Selma. Being a southerner, it just seemed normal to be around family and friends who made their own food, not only Jams and Jellies, but I remember every year the task of shelling “pink eyed purple hull peas”. We would prepare vegetables while we watched television. I can remember my mother and grandmother making pickled peaches and fig preserves, which I still love today. I learned to cook from the greatest two people to ever hold a spoon, my mother and father. My mother taught me how to make buttermilk biscuits from scratch and how to properly make good gravy. My father taught me the fine art of grilling and how to keep the juice inside, rather than cutting the meat and it ending up dry and over cooked. I was truly loved as a child, not only from the warm loving hugs and encouragement from my family, but also from the necessary spankings I received when I needed it. (I’m sure someone will have a different opinion regarding spanking a child, but it sure kept me on the straight and narrow and I’m truly grateful for it.)

Throughout my life I’ve been a heavy person. Constantly wrestling with my weight, I started yet another attempt to lose weight. This time, I started taking supplements. I ended up with more energy than I knew what to do with. On a whim, I made Strawberry Jam. My friends and family tasted it and just loved it. We performed taste tests between mine and the big store brands and mine won more times than not. So I tried other fruits, Apricot, plum, apple and everything I made was just delicious. I kept trying new things and looked around one day and saw that I had accumulated a lot of jam and jelly. I have a small garden every year, so I started making pickles and pickling banana peppers and jalapeno peppers. My inventory, so to speak, just seemed to keep growing. I had planned to just give away everything I made to friends and family. I gave away all they wanted and decided it was wise to see if I could sell it. That’s where my brand came in. I’m a programmer/graphic designer by trade, so all of my branding I created myself.

My hope is that my products bring a smile or some sort of comfort. I believe in the philosophy of “Good Things Happen to Good People”. Being a good person or a good friend or a good neighbor means being a good person first. The tag line on my logo is a reference from James 3:13-16 Do you want to be counted wise, to build a reputation for wisdom? Here’s what you do: Live well, live wisely, live humbly. It’s the way you live, not the way you talk, that counts.”

God Bless and Thank You for stopping by.
