    About Me

    I am a Jamaican 30 something living in Texas. I am of Asian, English, Indian, Jew and African heritage and love to cook. I moved to America 14 years ago when I married my African American husband. Ha! As you can see, I am like the United Nations - a little of everything.

    Like you, I love cooking - imagine that. This began with my Chinese mother who would cook the best Jamaican and Cantonese dishes I have tasted. At 6 years old, she taught me how to make a vegan omelette, I in turn have taught my daughter the same thing at the same age. Except she had zoomed past me and now at 8 years, makes her own breakfast, salmon, spaghetti just to name a few things.

    This love continued in high school. I went to an all girl school and it was mandatory to do cooking and sewing for three years. A little drama here and there in my life and voila I had to learn to cook. Now, I don't bake and can only promise you tears if I do so.

    My Aunt is married to a Lebanese and she is also a great influence on me as well. My greatest influence however is all the travelling I have done as a missionary around the world. From Africa, to the US and the Caribbean I have learned from local cooks how to create and make some diverse meals.

    For the vegan, I grew up kind of nature minded. My dad was in a religion that only permitted us to eat fish, fruits and vegetables for the most part. All in all, I have had some stellar moments and some well, let's not talk about those...like the cake I made that was so hard it stuck to the pan and I had to discard both the cale and the pan... yeah, let's talk about the triumphs!

    Currently, My husband and I pastor a church in Texas, stop by when you come to the wild wild west!
