She keeps us organized. She keeps us in line. She does more than we know. She keeps us on our toes. She keeps us well fed! She, is Mamma MaryEllen.
As the daughter of a WWII bomber pilot, she spent her early childhood all over this great nation but she's called South Carolina home for most of her life. She started cooking here in SC at 12 years old, thumbing through her Grandmother's cookbooks from the 30's and 40's. Whether from necessity or personal preference MaryEllen always tweaks recipes until they meet her high standards. While raising her three children, she became of a master chef of their favorites like fried chicken, homemade tomato sauces, fresh picked veggies, and, of course, desserts!
Her husband Mitch's sweet tooth has been a driving force for MaryEllen to perfect classic desserts like chocolate chip cookies, strawberry cake, and derby pie! Not a week goes by without MaryEllen baking up something delicious for her husband. She barely finishes saying hello before she starts baking cookies each time she goes to visit her children and grandchildren. Her food is the hit of every office potluck lunch and soon we'll be sharing it with you!
Stay tuned for Southern Classics done the Mamma MaryEllen way!
