Frances Barrineau is a native South Carolinian. She was born, educated, married and had her first daughter in Lancaster, South Carolina. After leaving Lancaster for thirty-five years, she returned with her husband to retire there. She and her husband of almost forty-five years have three daughters and five grandchildren, which includes twins. She says, “ I am an American by birth but a Southerner by the grace of God!” “There is really no other place anywhere quite like the South. I love the place of my birth.”
Frances had her first cookbook published in 2000, at the age of sixty-three. “Now I have completed by second book at the age of sixty-five, so I say to all of you, you are never too old, to follow a dream!”
She loves to create and come up with new ideas. She says, “The new ideas are really no fun without someone to share them with.” The cookbook is her way of sharing recipes and great ideas with her friends and fans.
