I am a MAN in Tennessee. I saw your videos on YouTube and it brought back memories of my mom and grandmother. Thinking of things cooked in the country on a country stove.

Hi Tammy and Chris
Just started watching you a few weeks ago and I love watching you. I haven’t been much on cooking at home due to work hours and difference in my husband and my schedules. Now that I found you on YouTube I don’t think we’ve eaten out maybe 3-4 times total in the past few weeks. My husband says thanks for that. I finally learned how to make homemade biscuits after so many years of trying. I always watched my mamma make them but I could never get it right, and she would do all from scratch. I am using the biscuit mix now and they are turning out perfect every time. I’ll give the homemade from scratch method a try again later now that I know what the dough should feel like and all that stuff. 
So anyway, keep making videos and I’m gonna keep watching. Thanks Tammy for getting me back in the kitchen.

I wanted you to know just how much I enjoy watching you cook! You have been such a blessing to me. When I see you, it so reminds me of myself. You see I am a cancer survivor(uterine) The main thing I wanted to share with is watching you I have been inspired to cook again! You have even taught me how to make biscuits! Good ones too I might add! Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks! At 61 I learned how to make biscuits! All thanks to you! My family loves this!

I just ran across one of your videos on YouTube! You are a great cook and I enjoy watching your videos. I tried the green beans tonight and they were so good! Trying the dumplings later this week. You are so personable you just seem like somebody that could be next door! I look forward to more of your videos!

Connie Rae Dean
I love your video's. Everyone has always considered me a good cook. But I am even a better cook now...Just by following your techniques! And I too love cooking with copper pans and cast iron skillets!
Linda Sheppard
I knew you were a "homie" when you were teaching us how to make gravy and said that you had just cut up a cantaloupe and wanted to eat that gravy with it ! Just found your you-tube channel and love it even though I've been cooking for years. Sometimes I need a refresher course! Btw, I'm from Cedartown GA (your hometown).
Carmen Bray
I made my first fried cornbread..thank you Tammy Was good. Thank you for your tutorials. That's how I learned.
Rick Earl
Hey! I just wanted to let you know how much I love you and your videos! I could watch you all day! I have really bad anxiety and panic attacks and for some reason watching you calms me down when I’m feeling anxious. You have really helped me in that way and with cooking things! I am a young wife and mother, and you bring me inspiration for healthy cooking for my family. I have always had a time with boiling eggs and getting them peeled and I tried your trick and they came out perfect! I will never cook them any other way. Also I made your granny green beans and they were absolutely delicious! You are an amazing woman with an amazing family and I look forward to future videos! With love,

Plain and simple recipes & cooking with a real, down to earth Southern girl. You have to try her Grannies Green Beans! I like Tammy because she's not "uppity". It's like hanging in the kitchen with your friend.
