Peg Corbitt Hardee was born and raised in Eastern North Carolina (ENC, affectionately). Through her experiences in the South and in all of her travels elsewhere, she has become the Queen of the Party. PegHardee.com will document her take on preparing everything from age-old recipes to modern cuisine, tips on how to decorate one’s home and entertain guests, and discoveries from her various travels.

April 2, 2013 I have been working on this blog for a couple of months now, although only my fam knew how to find it. As I prepared to make PegHardee.com (formerly Come on in, friend!) visible, I wanted to share my thoughts on the venture. This is a source for me to catalog recipes and cooking experiences, adventures in entertaining, and travels with family and friends. I do not consider myself a chef; merely a home cook. Nor am I the consummate entertainer; I simply gather family and friends in the comfort of my home. I am not a daring traveler; I am only a bit adventuresome and like to explore artsy and historical locales, and have fun in far flung (and not so far flung!) places.
This is how it happened! ~ I published a cookbook titled Look Who’s in the Kitchen in 2008 for my daughters, and nieces and nephews, plus a few special friends. I wanted a printed resource of recipes, photographs of the completed recipes, and tips and imagery documenting my manner of entertaining. The book is filled with photos of family and friends, art as it relates to food, and pics of significant travels. As years progressed, I yearned to expand the book, not a simple task once printed! Rather, Brenton suggested that I begin a blog cataloging the information. This way the recipes and tips are online so that when someone needs guidance, the source is always available. So, here’s PegHardee.com. Cheers! ps… Feel free to email me with any questions or comments. PegHardee@gmail.com
