I grew up with a Southern grandmother who’s food was full of flavor but very simple to make. I learned how to cook from watching and helping her in the kitchen. Every weekend my siblings and I looked forward to her big meals. My grandmother and my mom showed me that you don’t need a lot of money or time to make restaurant quality meals using every day ingredients.
On this blog, you will find all types of quick prep, simple, creative, inexpensive, flavorful recipes. The majority of my recipes do not require a lot of time and are made completely from scratch and with every day ingredients.
I love making food from all the world, so you will see some southern/soul food recipes, recipes from the Caribbean, Africa, Asia, Mexico South America countries and more!
I’m a cookbook addict. I love cookbooks and I can’t wait to share some of my favorite cookbook recipes with you!
A little more about me:
I was born in Upstate, NY. I grew up in Hillside NJ. I currently reside in the Washington, D.C area with my 3 boys (3,4 and 17 yrs old) and my husband.
Braised short ribs, black eyed peas and cannellini beans slow cooked in beef broth, onions and chipotle in adobe sauce, until tender and falling off the bones. The braised ribs cook down to a nice rich and flavorful spicy chipotle beef gravy.
