I get the question everyday, "What kind of food do you cook". I use to just say "I make soul food" to keep it simple, but I've always known I did so much more than that. This Cookbook Gives a detailed insight on all of my favorite and special dishes. My recipes are always based from the mindset of "small pockets big appetite" which means I try to keep the grocery list for each recipe under $30. Also being from the south, I learned how to cook in big portions and big portions only. This is a great thing, because it allows you to feed your family, friends, or make just enough to meal prep for yourself. Regardless of the purpose for you trying one of my recipes; the goal is to enjoy the time you spend in your kitchen. I paired a song with each recipe just for a little insight on the mood I get when I make the dish. Music while you cook tends to lessen the stress or anxiousness of cooking and allows you to relax more. I hope you truly get passion and amazing eats from this book. ENJOY!
I am a 23 year old Tennessee native, born in Louisiana southern cuisine connoisseur. I first discovered my passion for cooking at the young age of 5. I admired the soul and passion my mother Kimberly and grandmother Shirley put into every dish they made for our family, and always felt "at home" in the kitchen. Shortly after joining the Navy three years ago, I decided to take my natural talent and passion further by sharing my delicious dishes with friends and coworkers. The response I received was far more supportive than I had expected! After realizing the military isn't for me, I made myself a promise to put everything I have into becoming a chef and owning my own restaurant. Everyday I make steps towards new recipes, techniques, being a better business woman, and making my dreams come true. Cooking is the one thing that I could do all day everyday and never "sigh' from boredom or need a break from. Its truly my passion and purpose to feed people's souls through their stomach.
