The Flavor of Georgia event was a blast! We picked up our apron, set up our space, and could not wait to introduce our tea to Georgia! We met Senators, Congressmen, Lobbyists, and several other prominent figures in and around the state. We received rave reviews and look forward to a busy 2013.

We also met so many new food companies, made new friends, and sampled WAY too much food!!!

Our neighbors, and now buddy, Gayla’s Grits, keep us in stitches {and our bellies full} with her truth humor and delicious corn milled grits. I have so many grit recipes I can’t wait to try, I’m going to make the house sick! Okay, maybe not sick, but I’ve already made olive oil grits in the crock pot. Grits with Rotel is next on the menu!

Our neighbors on the right make spices to aid in down home Southern Soul food. Their entry: collard green spices. The spices enhance the flavor of your greens and reduce the cook time. Brilliant, I tell ya! Their collards and corn bread was a huge hit at the sampling table.

I have a sweet tooth that I just can not shake and the ladies from Heidi’s Heavenly Cookies did not help me with my problem. Their sea salt caramel bars were AMAZING! I forced myself to stay away {considering I wasn’t a judge!}, but boy was it difficult. And they were nice ladies too. Charming and fun to be around. I hope I run into them again soon.
