    About Me

    I didn't always know how to cook beyond the basics like rice, Ramen noodles and scrambled eggs. Embarassed  But I always wanted to be a great cook like my late, paternal grandmother, my mother, one of my aunt's who is a chef and Rachel Ray. I joined this site when it was still Recipe Zaar and started out trying super easy recipes that were five ingredients or less- no lie! (I also get a lot of great recipes from Pinterest. Many of them are linked back to here.) From there I started trying more recipes on here, from Pinterest adn cooking blogs that looked good and involved more components. I started out following them verbatim and then I would get adventurous and try different things by adding, omitting or substituting things within recipes to make it my own; suit my tastes.

     

    I am still not at the cooking extraordinaire status that I would like to be at but I am happy to say that I am well on my way. I truly enjoy cooking now and love seeing people enjoy my cooking. I can't put a price on that feeling. When you cook, you are giving yourself and others the gift of nourishment. We need to food to stay alive and thrive so in essence when I cook, I am giving people life! I love that. I'm an artist and creating flavorful food, plating it pretty (still working on this), and creating new textures and flavors is a form of art. An art I'm excited in mastering. It's so much fun exploring and trying different recipes and creating my own. Cool

    Favorite Foods

    I'm not very picky when it comes to food, I just don't like anything involving liver. Lol. All I ask is that food have flavor. I don't cook with salt a lot so using various spices, herbs and such to create flavor is important to me. I love trying new things and new foods including dishes derived from all over the world. I love Thai, Ethiopian, Guyanese, Mexican, Italian and Brazilian food. My family descends from the South so I also enjoy down home Southern style/soul food meals too. Man, I enjoy it all! I love seafood too. I'm still perfecting my salmon and this fall/winter, I want to try my hand at clam chowder from scratch. 
    Many of my favorite restaurants used to be chain restaurants until I moved to NY and now I love practically every cozy spot in Brooklyn. Some of my favorites in Brooklyn are Cornerstone (American), Joya (Thai), Lemongrass Grill (Asian/Thai), Peaches (American) and Ghenet Brooklyn (Ethiopian). In Manhattan some of my favorites are Gingers (Asian/Chinese), Chef Yu (Asian), STK, and Sushi Samba (Brazilian Asian fusion). Some of my favorite chain restaurants are Cheesecake Factory, Magiano's, Red Robin and Olive Garden.
