Memories around the dinner table

Memories around the dinner table

Karen Kurr is a member of the North East Mississippi EPA. Visit to learn more about No Time 2 Cook and for more recipes.

Growing up in Oxford, Karen Kurr spent weekends with her parents and sister on the family farm in central Mississippi where they raised cattle and tended a grape vineyard and hearty vegetable garden. It was on the family farm that Karen learned about cooking off of the land and the joy of family time around the dinner table – values she still cherishes and puts front and center in her own family.

“Friends and family cherished an invitation to Mama’s table, loaded down with her homegrown vegetables and Daddy’s grain fed Angus beef,” Karen recalls. 

“However, it was the conversation, fellowship and laughter that was enjoyed and remembered above all else. Mama and Daddy are gone now, but we as a family still gather around their old farm table enjoying some of the same foods and memories of days gone with our children, family and friends.”  

A few years ago, Karen found a way to honor and encourage such mealtime traditions by combining her passion for food with a mission to bring today’s busy families back to the dinner table – with No Time 2 Cook, her frozen meal business featuring wholesome ingredients and time-treasured recipes. 

Inspired by with fresh Mississippi ingredients, Karen selected a few of her favorite farm-to-table recipes (and memories) to share with Today in Mississippi … Enjoy!
