Two friends… two lives… two states… one incredible connection!
North Carolina – Tammie
Wife, mother, professional and busy blogger, Tammie transplanted her Western roots to the South nearly 24 years ago from the wild west of Wyoming. Having grown up in the west, she became instantly smitten with all things Southern; the food, the culture and the rich history to be found in her new home state of North Carolina.
Her love of cooking and eating Southern food, traveling and exploring lead her to her passion for writing about North Carolina. Partnering with her best friend Alessa in South Carolina, they started a food, travel and lifestyle blog in 2010. They immerse their readers in the wonderful variety of foods, culture and activities to be found in the Carolina’s.
