The Southern Lady Cooks, Blog Award, and Buttermilk Chocolate Bread

Rencently I stumbled across a blog that I loved right away. The Southern Lady Cooks is a blog that has all southern style recipes. I could look for hours through her yummy recipes. Unfortunately, I have only had the time to make one of her recipes, Buttermilk Chocolate Bread. I can't wait to try more!

I was reading her blog the other day and I happened to catch my blog name. I was presented with a blog award!
