deepfriedhoney started on Instagram, which is where I post the meals I make for my family. It grew incredibly fast, completely unexpectedly, and because I’m a helper by nature I decided to extend it into the site you’re currently surfing. I’m dipping my toe back into the content creation pool (if you’ve followed me for a while you might remember the mommy blog in the mid-2000s) and developing recipes for y’all. Over time I’ll fill this website with all sorts of content that I hope you’ll find useful and engaging. The kitchen is my very favorite playground, and if I can help make it seem more approachable and/or fun for all of you, even better. Here’s a bit about me and my journey with food and cooking…
I guess you could call my food ‘rustic’; much of it is heavy, stick to your ribs kinda stuff. I love heavy cream, breads, meat, salts. I feed my husband the way my grandmother fed my grandfather – I’m grateful they’re both country boys. It makes me feel connected to my roots, and it’s my favorite way to show my family and friends how much I adore them. I often cook vegan, vegetarian or pescatarian meals for my oldest daughter who cares very much about our planet and avoids meat products more often than not, and I’m looking forward to really expanding my skills in that area and sharing that journey with you.
Now, fair warning? deepfriedhoney isn’t a place for Judgy McJudgersons. Food snobs: I envy your elevated palates (truly! I wish I could relate!) but taste is subjective, right? It’s literally just your opinion and you’re free to have it. Only, quietly is all. Oh, and The Nutrition Police! Go judge someone else under the guise of being concerned for their health. I promise I’m good; you’re not telling me anything I don’t already know. I don’t shame people for their food preferences or choices and neither should you — when you’re in my spaces at least. An individual’s relationship with food can be varied, complicated, and deeply personal. I believe it deserves respect.
