I’m the author, recipe developer, food photographer and stylist behind Whisk it Real gud. What started as a hobby while I was a stay at home mom, has now grown into a business!
I grew up in the melting pot of NJ/NY. I was always surrounded by culturally diverse people and food at a young age. I was raised by mom and grandmother. They taught me how to cook and bake at an early age.
Every weekend my siblings and I looked forward to the big meals they made. They made do with the little they had. They showed me that I didn’t need a lot of expensive ingredients to make a good meal.
I’m a proud autism mom currently living in Elkridge MD with my husband and our boys. My favorite things in life is my quiet time, Netflix and a big bowl of my husband’s famous chili. Last, but not least, I love to travel.
Each week, I will share recipes that are not only good, but also easy to make. My hope is that you check them out, stop by and say hi , or ask a question in the comments, and of course, make some of my recipes!
WHAT SORT OF RECIPES ARE ON WHISK IT REAL GUD?
–Easy recipes focused on my favorite foods I grew up on. For example, comfort food, tacos, southern, Mexican, Italian and Asian inspired and many more.
–Most of the recipes I make are quick and easy. During these challenging times, we are all busy, therefore, quick but delicious food is pretty important.
–Go to pantry staple ingredients. Which means, you’ll probably have all of the ingredients to make the recipes on here. I only post recipes that I will actually eat. I don’t follow trends. I love familar food like, Jamaican beef patties, southern sweet cornbread, chicken stir fry, homemade taco seasoning and beef burritos, or meatloaf etc, but I also love making unique and international recipes.
For example, bulgogi chicken . It’s basically a flavorful marinated Korean chicken. This unique salmon with rhubarb sauce is pretty popular during the summer. I also enjoy cooking restaurant inspired favorites like, sweet and sour chicken, Lemon garlic shrimp alfredo shrimp pasta and more.
In addition to these recipes, I share step by step instructions with pictures and helpful tips and tricks to make your recipes a success. I don’t know about you, but I love visuals. Recipes with step by step pictures make intimidating recipes look easier and it makes me feel more confident. I know I’m not the only one that feels this way! I also love to leave helpful tip and tricks to make your cooking a success.
On a related note, I love pretty food, so I really work hard to snap photos that will make most people mouth water.
I truly hope my recipes inspire you or make you a more confident cook. I also hope you and your family enjoy them so much that you’ll make them over and over again and share them with your family and friends!
