Mermaids in the Kitchen: Recipe Call!

Look outside…I don’t know about you, but I think spring is on the way! Tybee Island is gorgeous in any season, but spring is special, and summer? Well, summer is even better!

Spring and summer mean warmer weather, flip flops, beach towels…and cook outs! Picnics and cookouts are usually some of Mermaid Cottages’ favorite memories. There’s just something about food that brings family and friends together like nothing else can. It’s with that in mind that we ask for your help!

Shrimp and grits is a favorite around here!

Here at Mermaid Cottages, we’ve added a new feature to our blog. Mermaids in the Kitchen is meant for sharing recipes with our Mermaid Nation; there’s just one problem. We need some fresh recipes to share! That is where you come in. We would love for all you Mermaid Cottages fans near and far to help us in the kitchen!

Do you have a fabulous recipe you just love returning to time and time again? Is your potato salad the life of the party? Do you have a beach inspired meal that your family can’t get enough of? A cocktail that makes you wish it was happy hour all day long? We’d love to hear about it! Please send us your recipes!

We’re looking for recipes to share, and the beachier, the better!  Winter, spring, summer, or fall, we’d love to hear what you prepare to make your family and friends smile. If you have a recipe you’d like to share, please send your recipe and information to us at  Please feel free to share any stories about your recipe. Including pictures of your prepared recipe is a major plus, too! After all, don’t we all eat with our eyes first?

So get those cooking notes out of the cupboard, dust off that go-to recipe card, and shoot us an email! We can’t wait to hear (and see!) what you come up with!
