Southern at Heart.

It's no secret that Food Network is a go-to staple in our house ...

One of my favorite shows is Southern at Heart, with host Chef Damaris Phillips (also a Food Network Star winner!) and if you've tuned in before you certainly know why. First, you know my Southern roots loves someone like Damaris who cooks authentic Southern recipes with her sweet Southern charm! And second, because she's been a huge supporter of our brand and wearer of our aprons since the very beginning.

For FOUR seasons, Damaris has worn one of our aprons on nearly every episode of her hit show. I think she's worn through nearly every piece in our collection and I love seeing how she brings them together in the kitchen.

I'm thrilled to share the exciting news that she's currently filming SEASON FIVE, and we are so excited to be a part of her wardrobe once again! Keep your eyes peeled to spot them for yourself, and tune in for some of the best Southern recipes around.

Homemade Ice Cream Recipes.

Well, it's #NationalIceCreamDay and probably one of the best "holidays" I can think of. Summer in the South brings no greater treat than ice cream. And in my opinion, there are some things that simply can't get any better than homemade and ice cream is definitely at the top of my list.

Today's celebration doesn't just end with ice cream, but with the launch of a brand new item in our Southern Artisan Collection as we team up with local Atlanta hand-lettering artist Erica Loesing of Yes Ma'am Paper Goods for our new Family Recipe Card + Cloth gift sets.

Oh my goodness if this doesn't capture the essence of an heirloom, I just don't know what does. This one is near and dear to my heart. I am so fortunate to have handwritten recipe cards from my mother, grandmother & great grandmother's collections - but I know not everyone is this fortunate. And even more so, I know in the future these authentic gifts will become even more scarce.

This gift set captures memories, tastes and ingredients of a loved ones most beloved recipe, beautifully hand scripted and meticulously designed on both a recipe card, as well as textured towel, making a treasured keepsake and special gift. Helping a family recipe to live on for generations gives this gift an even more powerful meaning.

And, as a perk, here are two delicious ice cream recipes from some of the samples that Erica designed and that we shot for the launch of these beauties - Mom's Favorite Ice Cream and Blueberry Lavender Ice Cream.

I'd love to know if you have a special family recipe for ice cream, too! And, hope you'll pop over to the shop to see some of the other family recipes we styled up for this extra special new product!
