Hi there! Thank you for visiting Whisk It Real Gud.
A little background about me: I grew up with my mom and southern grandmother and they both taught me how to cook. Every weekend my siblings and I looked forward to big meals. They showed me that I didn’t need a lot of expensive ingredients to make a good meal, or spend hours in the kitchen making great meal.
I’m from the melting pot of NJ/NY area. I was always surrounded by culturally diverse people and food at a young age. I started this blog in late 2014 to document my recipes for friends and my family. My grandmother and mom taught me how to cook and bake at a very young age.
The recipes on this site are are a reflection of all the food I grew up eating and making with family and friends like, Southern, African, Caribbean, Latin American, Asian, Italian. My recipes are simple and use everyday ingredients. You’ll be able to make everything since I use ingredients you probably already have. On this blog you’ll find easy comfort recipes, nostalgic meals, or readers FAVORITE, southern recipes, soul food recipes and ethnic recipes among others.
My work on this site has been featured in: Essence,Walmart, Barilla, Country Living, Giant Eagle, Delish, Buzzfeed, Shape, Swiss Diamond, Stratford University, Greatist, Rue la la, Foodista, Foodiecrush, Sheknows, Thefeedfeed, and Spoonuniversity, to name a few.
I currently reside in the DMV (Maryland area) with my husband, our 5 and 6 year old (both on the autism spectrum) and teen.
