I am so excited after finding your thanksgiving recipes. 
I have put it in my favorites, I printed 11 recipes. I am not the best cook and I was sitting here trying to put together a menu for Thanksgiving and I don't know how, but I came across your website.

I absolutely LOVE this website! I love soulfood and the website brings back wonderful memories of my mother-in-law, now gone to be with the Lord. She started cooking when she was 8. Her mother taught her how to cook and at that young age, it was very necessary because her parents worked in the cotton fields and she took care of her younger siblings and cooked for the family.

I wanted to thank you for setting up this site. I have had great luck finding recipes here that appear to be very close to the ones I remember. Thank you for your work and time that has gone into this site and I am so happy to see so many southern favorites so the younger generations can continue eating and caring on the traditions that we have for so very long and making everyday and special day with good food that reflects our southern heritage.

This site has my kind of recipes. My mother and grandmother are gone so I have no one to help me cook the dishes I grew up with.
