Lana Stuart - Food Blogger
I grew up in a rural southern town of about 1200 residents in a large family of excellent southern cooks. It was there, surrounded by wonderful cooks, that I learned the art of southern cuisine. I have so many treasured memories of cooking huge family meals shared on fine china in my mother’s dining room. Memories of grandmothers and aunts whose specialties included things like fried chicken, coconut cake, ambrosia, turnip greens, and cornbread. When I first started blogging, it was just me, my kitchen and the computer. My only readers were my daughter, my husband, and my mama.
Over time I’ve grown my readership substantially and have formed a network with other bloggers through their comments, and on Facebook and Twitter. Although my main focus is on sharing traditional and updated southern recipes on Never Enough Thyme, I quite frequently include other dishes that my family enjoys. I strive for sincerity and authenticity in every post I write, and I’ve also learned that bloggers don’t necessarily have to be experts. You simply have to have a passion for your topic and a willingness to share your knowledge with other people.
