I have a friend online whom I met at The Social Media Examiner Clubs
who has written a darling cookbook (with great recipes too) that I have
perused to find new and fun things to prepare for my own family and
Dea adds a blip about herself at her blog —
“From a small Mississippi town and have lived my adult life in the south.
I am the wife of Tom Irby since 1974, mother of 8, grandmother of 8, lover
of Truth, previous owner of The Baron York Tea Room Cafe and Gift Shop
(7 years), cookbook writer, moderator of the Small Business forum on Social
Media Examiner, enjoy life and all the adventure God brings my way.”
I think this describes Dea to a T – she is a very sweet person and
although I don’t like to print recipes that can be found elsewhere
on the web, that’s almost impossible these days!
Two reasons to print Deas’ recipe – first, she gave permission :),
and second I love Deas’ cookbook and the great recipes I find that
add a twist to my own recipes.
