About Me

My photo
I grew up in a family of Southern storytellers. Back in 2004, I started Whole Bean to continue the tradition in a new medium. Over the years, I've written about families and friends, peculiar situations, extended road trips, recalcitrant home appliances, and many things for which I'm truly grateful. I hope you enjoy your time here.

I have found the best catfish in Atlanta.  It is at Mouth of the South, located in Roswell on Mansell Road at Highway 9.  The owners are originally from Louisiana, but their methods of preparation more than satisfy any Southern-bred catfish lover.  The crawfish tails appetizer makes me yearn for humidity and lagniappe.  The place is wonderful!
This comfortable little restaurant has the makings of a Southern Ippolito's.  I say this because, at one point in time, Karen and I visited Ippolito's and felt that the marinara was out of this world.  But back then, Ippolito's was this little unknown place in a Roswell strip shopping center. My, how times have changed!
