Meet Fannie & Ruby...


Meet Fannie and Ruby...our grandmothers...

Fannie was born and raised in Monroe Co., Alabama.  She was my Granny Darby and she was affectionately known to her family as "Doll."  Coincidentally, one of her favorite titles used for me (and her grandchildren) was "doll baby."
I spent every summer (and at least once a week in between) in her kitchen, watching and helping her cook from scratch...not measuring...just "eye-balling" the amount of flour, oil, milk or water that a recipe needed.  It frustrates my two grown daugher's to ask me how, or to attempt to watch me cook---because I use a lot of "made-up" recipes and "eye-ball" the ingredients.  My recipe for homemade biscuits is one of my husband's favorites---which is a "add & mix until it looks right" recipe.  She was the quilter of the family and I am very blessed to have a few of her treasures.

Ruby was born and raised in the Poarch Community near Atmore, AL.  She was a founding member of the Poarch Creek Indians.  Her name at birth was rightfully given to her, as she was truly a precious gem.  I didn't meet her until she was well into her 80's, but my husband assures me that she knew how to make a cathead biscuit...


Both ladies were true, hardworking Southern, Godly women.  We knew from day one of dreaming about this business that we wanted to name it after these two precious women who helped raise us and we loved dearly.


Proverbs 31:28-31 says:  "Her children rise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.  Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all.  Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.  Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the gates."
