A New Look.. Sort Of....

" I'm not going to change the way I look or the way I feel to conform to anything. I've always been a freak.
So I've been a freak all my life and I have to live with that, you know..
I'm one of those people. "
-John Lennon

I feel the same way about change.. I'm set in my ways and make a big deal if I really truly have to change something that I don't want to..

Did you know there is someone else out there who considers themselves to be "Southern Girl's Kitchen"

So much so that about 4 years ago they put a copyright on that name (and bought just about all the urls to go with it) So what if they never use it..

It's not like 4 years later some random chick named Erika would think to start a blog named that..

Oh she did.. bummer well tell her she can't use that name... (the great thing about blogging.. you can have a complete conversation with yourself and not seem crazy in the slightest)

As you can see I made some changes.. It started about 2 months back when I went to change my blog over from blogspot only to discover the url to be taken and my husband.. being the avid researcher that he is, advising me to change the name due to the copyright issue.. I didn't want too..really.. but I also didn't want any hate mail from someone about stealing a name.. even though no one appears to be using it.. ( I just have to keep adding that)

It's all good though.. because the new name is really my old nickname from college.
 I was hell on wheels with a hot plate and one day my roommate made a joke about how I thought I was a "Southern Souffle or Something" at the time she was just "hatin" but the name stuck and even now.
"I not going to tell you how many years later" if I see an old classmate from college they call me by that name and ask me if I'm still cooking on that burned out hotplate..

Well, No
Now I have a tricked out gas stove to do all that cooking and a platform to ramble on about a bunch of somewhat non-sense.
That I decided... after advisement from my Chief of Staff to rename...

Southern Souffle..

What do you think?


  1. An adverse situation created an opportunity for you to dig deep and be resourceful and creative--I loved "Southern Girl's Kitchen," yet I love "Southern Soufflé" even more. It's unique and as you said, very much you. A good "new" look...

    1. Thank you so much for your kind words.. :)

  2. Great new name! Fits you well and love the back story makes it even more "Southern" it has roots :)

  3. I love the name! And the blog look is wonderful!


Thank you so much for your comments... I read each one with a kool-aid smile..
