Publisher's Summary

Legendary recording artist Mia X was the first lady of multi-platinum record label No Limit Records. Her cookbook/memoir is filled with memories from her childhood and all the way through her musical career, as well as sharing some of her delicious recipes. 

The cookbook/memoir is an ode to her late grandmother, whom she fondly calls Mamaw. Mamaw had a big hand in raising Mia. She had a straightforward lace with (at times) a raw-gritty-cuss-words approach to life. 

Things My Grandma Told Me, Things My Grandma Showed Me will have you laughing, crying, quoting Mamaw, and cooking.

Amazing!!!

I love this book soo much. I'm so glad that Mia X narrated her book. Her voice makes you feel like you are family and right at home in New Orleans. This book will bring back memories of your own family and teach you a few lessons that you might have missed. This is a must for every woman. It is an amazing and very necessary addition to the African-American written and oral history. I've already made 2 of her Mamaw's recipes, delicious! I must order a hardcopy because this book is a classic.

Wisdom for the Ages

This book was an amazing read (listen) Mia X was so lucky to have had the guidance of someone so wise in the ways of the world. Not to say that our families dont provide the support we need but her G-Ma was like a wise old sage who channeled the wisdom of Confucius in a modern day world. With a wit and humor that just doesn't give this book is sure to to please one and all who read / listen to it.

The recipes and the time spent in the kitchen remind me of my own upbringing waking up at 5am and spending time in the kitchen with my aunt while she made sunday dinner, I was always the support never actually learning what she was doing but just watching the magic happen - very different from Mia X who actually absorbed all the moments and translated them into every dish she continues to make till this day. Just a great read!!!
