Over the years Franklin County, Mississippi has produced some very fine cooks. Their productions have been displayed and consumed at church dinner-on-the-grounds, family reunions, community potlucks (tote-a-bowls) and other events. I know every family has some of their great-grandmother's, grandmother's, aunt's, or cousin's favorite family recipes they would like to share with us.
It would be interesting if each researcher in Franklin County would contribute at least one recipe but no more than five. Each submission should be from a different ancestor. When you submit your recipe, please include the name of the ancestor to whom the recipe can first be attributed, dates (if known) and a little info about them. Submit by e-mailing Carolyn Adams Switzer .

My Grandma-Great Ivie Nora Montgomery Rowland (b. 1879) grew up in Franklin County. Grandma-Great often helped in the kitchen and learned how to cook at a young age. She was one of those fabulous Franklin County cooks. In the 16 years I knew her (d. 1964), her kitchen was the most favorite place in the house! Every time I spent the night with her, she would teach me how to cook a new dish. For this I am forever grateful!
