I am a foodie. I was raised in the south by a mother and grandmother that loved to cook and I can spot a good restaurant a mile away. If I know anything, it’s food. Some say I’m a harsh critic when it comes to any dish, but we all know what a little extra attention and care can do for a recipe. You have to start somewhere though, and Lulu can help you make a cookbook full of your own favorite dishes.
Let’s start with what I know best: soul-food.
