Sallie Stamps Swor is the author of the popular cookbook, You’re Grown – Now You Can Cook. The original project began as a request from her son who was moving into an apartment and wanted a book of his favorite recipes. When his friends tasted these delicious dishes they all wanted copies of You’re Grown – Now You Can Cook. Sallie’s friends wanted copies as well, and so this cookbook was born. The author is fortunate to have had a career working with high school students and young adults as a high school counselor and college consultant. In creating this collection of recipes, she is able to use her experience with students, clients, her son, and his friends as a way to write in a voice that makes sense to a novice cook while relating to anyone like Sallie who loves food and entertaining. This has led to a regular spot cooking on the local CBS affiliate morning show, teaching classes at the popular Monteagle Assembly retreat, demonstrations and classes at local markets and CSAs, lecturing at book clubs, supper clubs, study groups, and garden clubs. Sallie uses her talents to provide food for fundraisers and volunteer events, and donates books and cooking classes to charitable organizations. For Sallie, cooking has been a passion, obsession and creative outlet since she was a young girl. Currently she runs a blog for anyone who loves to cook and enjoys hearing from her readers.
