Hello, I’m Sharon the blogger, recipe developer and photographer for Grits and Pinecones, a southern cooking and hospitality blog.
I’m all about creating delicious recipes with a Southern flair that are quick, easy and PERFECT to share with family and friends. Nothing fussy or complicated, just “go-to” dishes for the everyday home cook.
Besides scrumptious well-tested recipes on my blog, you will also find expert cooking tips and tricks, step-by-step tutorials, and step-by-step process photos for each recipe.
I have been cooking, developing and reimagining recipes for my family and friends for over 40 years. I have also been a guest columnist and had my recipes featured in the weekly TLC Life section of the Tallahassee Democrat-USA Today Network-Florida for over three years.
My recipes have also been featured on the following websites:
- Better Homes and Gardens
- Taste of Home
- Country Living
- Parade, Community Table
- Country Cooking
- Tallahassee.com Community Blogs
- Des Moines Register
- Shari’s Berries

And, showcased in the following print magazines:
Plus, I have been a guest presenter on the ABC affiliate, WTXL-TV Sunrise Morning Show cooking segment.
I want to thank my sister Chula at The Pudge Factor, and a high school classmate of mine Carolyn at A Southerner’s Notebook (both excellent cooks), for sharing their knowledge of blogging and being the inspiration for me to start this blogging journey with you.
Thank you for visiting and thank you too for coming along on my culinary adventures!
