I am a Virginia native, who grew up in California, went to high school in Dallas, TX, and now resides in the San Francisco Bay Area. I am a blogger at www.sweetteasweetie.com. My style is Southern with a California twist! Sweet Tea Sweetie is inspired by the looks on my Southern cousin’s faces when they put avocado on their sandwich for the first time, by the endless times I've tried to explain what corn pudding is to my California friends and by memories of waking up on Saturday mornings to a big pot of grits on the stove. Join me in creating delicious Southern homestyle recipes served side by side with healthy California cooking and all of the wanderlust that these dishes inspire.
