Grits and Gouda Featured on BFF with the Chef Podcast Episode 8 I'm sharing my Southern shortcut tips and talking about my Magic Cakes cookbook.

From Hawaii, BFF with the Chef‘s Nicole Schwegman, interviews me (Kathleen Royal Phillips) on her podcast #8! We laugh, share food stories, reminisce about what we ate growing up in the South (her Grandmother was from the South), share funeral food dishes (yes, that’s a thing in the South), and she asks me to explain what a Magic Cake is in detail-so I’m happy to talk cake with her.

We also chat about my Holiday Cooking Show coming up at the Gardendale Civic Center November 1. It is a fundraiser for my husband and son’s nonprofit Outdoor Ability Foundation. They equip the young disabled outdoorsman (woman) and have presented seven Action Trackchairs to kids and young adults that show a passion for the outdoors but not the funds to purchase one of these chairs that start at $11,000.
