Welcome to A Southern Fairytale – I’m Rachel!


I am a writer, speaker, recipe developer, photographer, mom, wife, boot-wearer, a fan of spicy foods, chips and salsa, belly-laughs, and hugs.

When I’m not in the kitchen, or hanging out with friends and neighbors, you can usually find me volunteering at my kids’ schools, substitute teaching, getting inspiration for recipes from restaurant menus, farmers markets, and Granny’s recipe cards.

The view through my camera lens inspires me to capture and create memories each and every day.

9 Unexpected and Easy Pumpkin Recipes to Spice Up Your Fall

It may be August, but I’m already craving cooler weather, pumpkin recipes, football, and fires crackling in the fireplace.

Hey Ya’ll!

I’m so happy you’re here!

I am the editor, publisher, prep cook and chief dishwasher of A Southern Fairytale, a food blog and journal of my happily ever after, Southern-style with my Harley ridin’, DIY handy-man husband, and our two 8th generation Texan children.
