What is a Grilled Grandma?

A grilled grandma is a grandma on whom I've shone the spotlight, grilling her with some grandma-related questions — and she's graciously responded with answers and photos!

I regularly feature a new Grilled Grandma, so if you are a grandma, have a grandma or know a grandma, I want to hear about it. Just email me a first name and e-mail address and GRILLED GRANDMA in the subject line, and I'll add you/her to the menu of future Grilled Grandmas.

While you're here, get to know the latest Grilled Grandma — and don't be shy in showing her a little love with your comments!

    Grilled Grandma: Kim of Mommie...Again

    Dear readers: It's Grilled Grandma time once again! I first met Kim of Mommie...Again online through a Facebook group we both belong to. I then had the good fortune of meeting her in real life at Bloggy Boot Camp-Dallas, where we became fast friends during the conference (proven by our willingness to climb into appliances together). Please give my friend Kim a warm welcome into the Grilled Grandma family. Cheers!
