MaDea's Plantation Cookbook – Recipes from the Old South
The difference between a good cook and a great cook is timely preparation. It doesn't take much effort to think about what you want to provide as a meal for your family for the next day. The best way is to plan the meals and purchase the items for the week ahead.
While living on the plantation there were a lot of mouths to feed, and that took lots of preparation and planning. Today's families prepare less, but the quality should be the same. Make time work for you and not the other way around. Your dollars take hard work to get so why not use them wisely and buy and prepare quality meals. Your family will praise you and thank you.
About Toni Mariani (Union, South Carolina Author)
This series, The Mississippi Plantation Series is my first published work. I completed the series with a cookbook, MaDea's Plantation Cookbook-Recipes From the Old South. This book is dedicated to the memory of my paternal great grandmother, Lilli Miller who spoke in a whisper. I never heard the reason why, so I had to come up with a story from my own imaginings, from what I know of human nature.
After completing my series I found out from my mother's sister, one half of our DNA shows that we are from most nations of this planet, including 15% Scandinavian/Vikings. We live, love and die, equal to all, just as my characters do.
Since January of this year, I have written seven books, including a memoir about my two sons who are asleep in the grave.
I was born in St. Louis Missouri, so it follows that I should choose it as my hometown, though I live in Sheboygan Wisconsin.
