God is great, God is good; Let us thank Him for our food. By His hands we shall be fed. Give us Lord our daily bread. Amen.

Pound Cake

"I have made a gazillion of these cakes for everything from homecomings to home-goings, and every occasion in between."

To know MeMe is to know that she keeps a freshly baked pound cake sitting on her counter under a glass-domed cake plate at any time, just in case someone should stop by and need a slice. Having a conversation with a friend while sharing the delectable delight with a cup of coffee or a glass of sweet tea is therapeutic and comforting for both parties. Whether it is being served as a finale to a fantastic meal, celebrating a special milestone, a peace offering, or simply enjoying a Tuesday afternoon, each joyful, happy bite can be a reminder of the sweetness of life. 

Lee Leary

in loving memory...

As the longest official taste-tester, it is only fitting that MeMe’s husband is mentioned and honored. After 57 years of marriage, Lee made his heavenly journey to be with the Lord in 2016. 

The Leary Tribe is a living legacy of a man dedicated to his faith and family. He would be immensely proud of the path of MeMe’s Recipes – something he had long encouraged MeMe to pursue, especially with her secret pimento cheese recipe! And he would be humbled to see where something as genuine as spending time together, serving Jesus, and fixing supper has reached so many.
