When I first met Deborah , I could hardly believe that I had found someone who is as passionate about spreading MISSISSIPPI LOVE as I am! Everyone knows that my mantra is: “Always, Always Celebrating the South and Promoting a Positive Mississippi.” My books are my love letters to the South.

Deborah Hunter has a mission. Here is her statement: “The mission of Cooking with Honey and Friends is to create the greatest ‘love affair’ with the state of Mississippi that the world has ever seen. We are introducing our cookbook as a personal invitation to our table.


Visit the Cooking with Honey and Friends on Facebook. (It sounds SO much like me!) Here is an excerpt from the page:

“One afternoon as I was taking the drive home and feeling the warmth of the sun on my face looking across the landscape in all of it’s charming beauty. My heart was filled with so much gratitude that I could call Mississippi my home. I have so many great childhood memories walks along winding roads, fishing poles, the sweet smell of magnolias, sugar canes and friendly people. In that moment, I realized how the outside world’s view of this beautiful state of Mississippi is many times blurred because of limited or false ideas. Mississippi, like me, has grown up, in so many ways …and its beauty is undeniable. In an instant my heart was filled with the idea of inviting the whole world to my table to share with them the place I call home. Who could ever resist its great food, amazing entertainment and real Southern hospitality?

After all this is MISSISSIPPI.

Deliciously yours,
