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?
So here yall go so you can stop bothering me lol. Again since I am an intuitive cook, writing out recipes is always the last thing I think about because I’m so focused on what I’m doing in the moment. Imma do better 🙂
If you try it tag #CookingwithyourfutureBM or #CWYFBM or #Cookingwithyourfuturebabymama (long ass hahtag but whatever ) and @stylingonyou on IG I wanna see! And it’s always important to site your sources 🙂 If you have any questions hit me up. Enjoy!
