The sisters behind Red Velvet Wisdom:
Dena–Born and raised in the rural South, Dena is a special education teacher, photographer, church pianist, social service volunteer, and somehow finds time to be a wife and mother. She got the idea for creating this site after countless lengthy discussions with her sister about all of the people they know with amazing stories and recipes that should be shared with the world. She cooks but rarely from scratch, using any shortcut available.
Joy–Little sister to Dena and raised from the same long line of fabulous cooks, Joy works in the mental health field, blogs, judges pageants, and mentors collegiate women at her Alma Mater. She’s currently better at making reservations than she is at cooking a meal, but she considers herself a work in progress in this area.
We love to remember the old ways and how things used to be. In our fast paced lifestyle, nothing brings us back to those times faster than a mother who still can’t use call waiting or only uses a microwave to heat water.
