I'm April, the author, recipe developer, food photographer and stylist behind Whisk it Real gud. What started as a hobby while being a stay at home mom, has now grown into a business!
Being brought up in multicultural and diverse areas of Northern, NJ, not only have I gained long time friendships of people from many different ethnicities, but I've also developed a very diverse taste palate.
I currently live in the DC area with my husband in a house full of wonderful boys. Two of our youngest were diagnosed with Autism a few years ago.
When I'm not busy with the boys, I'm creating food for the blog, I stay stuck in nostalgia mode, making southern and ethnic recipe, or mashups, influenced by my childhood. The recipes I create are easy and the ingredients are accessible. Also, to make sure readers are on the right path, I provide step by step process shots and tons of helpful tip to make your recipe a success.
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 I'll actually eat. I don’t follow trends. I love familiar 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.
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!
Follow me on this cooking journey and let’s create some amazing but EASY food.
One last thing, I seriously LOVE seeing the food you are making! It would really make me happy if you tag @whiskitrealgud in your Instagram stories or photos. We ADORE seeing what our readers are making!
