Expressing creativity via cooking is not only a form of entertainment for me but also a method of self care for me. So using my imagination, being able to eat, and it look nice for me is a good time. Anyway I came up with this dish by using all the leftovers from taco night. I usually will make breakfast burritos or tacos with the left overs but one morning I really wanted to impress the person I was making breakfast for so I came up with this lovechild of a tostada, Mexican pizza from Taco Bell, chilaquiles, and a quesadilla. So here I give you…”The Morning After” inspired by all those things aforementioned as well as a track “Where are my panties” off one of my favorite albums that shall never be taken out of rotation ever “The Love Below”. Ok, I know y’all tired of me talking and you’re here for the steps. Keep in mind I’m just giving you technique and a loose guideline. You can literally customize this annyyyyyy way you want, make it vegan, make it vegetarian, make it with all the meat you want. Get Freaky, you know the vibes.Continue reading
I posted a quick video on my IG stories and in true fashion my dms got blown up for the recipe. Also in true fashion I had no recipe because I literally wing all my meals. I like to call myself an intuitive cook but that don’t help y’all at all. So since it’s the season of giving. I sat down and wrote out the recipe for you. I hope you enjoy it. Make it your own. If you don’t have crab use sausage, top it with bacon, use some sautéed mushrooms get freaky. This is basically a guideline for you to explore. Enjoy!Continue reading
I am what you would consider an intuitive cook. I only follow a recipe once just to understand the structure and then I like to innovate on it to make it my own. I am also big on flavor. Even a healthy dish can taste great if you season every step. Using JUST salt and pepper is not gonna cut it. Anyway, summer is coming and I have been trying to make healthy alternatives to dishes I love by being inspired by the flavor of that dish. Case in point Cajun alfredo pasta. I’m not fooling with pasta right now and tried to work with items I already had on hand to finesse a dish and satisfy my craving and boom. This is what came of it. I posted it on my Instagram and go so many dms about “Where the recipe?!” I ended up writing it out and I figured why not just throw it up here? Continue reading
When I was in elementary school my mom planned a trip for us to go to Hawaii we had never been and I was extremely excited to go. I remember visualizing what it would smell like, what the sun would feel like on my skin, and how clear the water was. I had hyped myself up for weeks preparing for this adventure. Continue reading
IT TWANKLES AND GLISTENS!!
When I graduated college many, moons ago (don’t ask how many moons ok!) As a gift my mom gave me a ” You’re a grown woman self care kit/Lesson”. She has always been on our heads (my sisters and I) about taking care of our skin. To the point that she will comment things like “I hope you have on sunscreen!” on a fire selfie posted to Facebook. Think I’m kidding? Exhibit A:
Throughout my life I have been told that I am and like things that are considered “Extra”…OK… I used to think of it as a bad thing until I understood that having or being “extra” is just adding a little sauce to the ordinary in your life, which is what I really enjoy doing. Continue reading
Happy New Year! It’s been a min but I am officially back with the jump off. And what’s a more perfect way to get things going than a healthy food post?!
I was doing my morning scroll of my Twitter feed and saw a post by Bon Apetit via Basically for a Gochujang and Sesame roasted Squash recipe and said “WELP that’s what’s for lunch today!” And I headed to the store and got to work. Continue reading
So Kimchi is one of my favorite things. It’s spicy has some crunch and is VERY good for your body because it’s fermented (more info here). Anyway about a year ago I was scrolling through Twitter and I saw a recipe for kimchi udon. Continue reading
During the week I try to cook everyday to save money and keep tabs on my glow up progress by paying attention to what I eat. With that being said, I also like to get my “Sandra Lee” on and try to finesse a pre made food item into something delicious, health conscious and fabulous. Continue reading
