Cooking with your Future Baby Mama: Cod W/ Spicy Cajun Cream Sauce

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

This time last year…

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.

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:

Today I got paid…And then even though I wanted to buy some Nike Uptempos I paid bills instead. This is also a rent check :-/ .So let’s just say I’m going to have to get creative in the kitchen and in life to keep this party going. However that doesn’t mean I can move and shake in life even when things get tight. Part of keeping your eyes on the prize is having a positive mindset and attitude. To help me stay on track  for a while now I have been listening to the teachings of Abraham Hicks who is the master teacher of the law of attraction. She is what the popular book “The Secret” was inspired by. If you haven’t read or watched the film please check it out.   Continue reading
