Comfort foods from beloved chef and TV personality Carla Hall are now shipping right to your door! Carla grew up in Nashville surrounded by soul food cooked by her grandmother Freddie Mae, and after stints as an accountant and runway model she switched gears and embraced her true calling: food!

Carla believes that food connects us all, and when she cooks, she cooks with love!

Amazing. The “Oreo” cookies were perfect and the bars were exquisite. Though I was able to eat all the sweet potato bars because my wife would not try it. Of course in return I was able to have only one of the cherry bars.
