Slatherin’ Sauce in Berlin with SUSTA

In June 2012, Berliners had a chance to buy many Southern gourmet products. Slatherin’ Sauce was right there in the middle of it all. The promotion was at KaDeWe Department store in Berlin.

We’re grateful to the Southern United States Trade Association (SUSTA) for promoting Southern made goods in Germany.

Cape Fear Wildlife Foundation Wild Game & Seafood Banquet


I’m a country girl at heart. I grew up on John’s Island. Our family dined on what was hunted or fished from the waters and woods around the island. So, supporting organizations that nurture the wild places where game and fish are native is important to me. That’s why I’ve been involved with the Cape Fear Wildlife Foundation’s first Wild Game and Seafood Banquet. As a featured chef at this event. I’ll be preparing our Carolina Pimento Cheese Grits and Slathered Shrimp.

I have been working with their planning committee in designing the menu. In addition to the shrimp and grits, there will be other Slathered including Slathered Venison Meatballs. Slatherin’ Sauce will also be available for the Grilled Venison Bratwurst and Wild Boar Sliders. Rattlesnake Chili however will not Slathered…I am uncomfortable with anything that slithers being Slathered.

I’ve been told that tickets are expected to sell out quickly. If you want tickets, contact:

Hope to see you all there!

School Fundraising

LocalHappiness-logoY’all know that my years as a teacher gave me a big heart for supporting our neighborhood schools. Every year students, parents and teachers work to raise money to help each school gain extra funding to do many desirable things.

Some schools raise money for playgrounds. Others for supplies for children who don’t have them. Others raise money to pay for field trips. So many schools sell nuts, oranges, gift wrap, and even coupon books. But why not sell products made in South Carolina?

That’s the question that I’m sure Ken Carey answered when he established LocalHappiness. Ken writes that LocalHappiness supports “both our schools and our local communities by offering top notch products made or designed by South Carolinians.” He continues,

We’re extremely excited about Local Happiness and want to get as many schools and other organizations as possible on board.

If you’d like to see your child’s school support South Carolina’s small business to include, farmers, specialty food producers, artists, authors and musicians – tell us and tell them!”

Ken, we’re delighted to participate as one of your product partners. There are some mighty fine folks in that line up and some good eating too.

If you’re in South Carolina and want to get your child’s school on board to sell all these fine South Carolina products like Slatherin’ Sauce, contact Ken and LocalHappiness via their website.
