Welcome to my Cooking Corner! I want to first thank you for taking the time to check out my blog. Food is so important to me, and I love being able to share my love for food with others. Food plays a large part in my culture, and it is my way of imparting love to others.

I am a teacher in North Carolina and a mother to a beautiful daughter and 2 fur babies. I began cooking at a young age. By age 12 I was able to cook full meals for my family. I grew up in New York City, a place known for its robust and diverse food scene. That diversity definitely inspires me, and can be seen through the vast array of dishes and cuisines I like to eat (and cook!). Throughout all of my life’s many obstacles, challenges, and transitions, my love and passion for food always remained. I decided to create this blog to share my recipes and kitchen tips with home cooks all over the world. If I can inspire even one person in the kitchen, then my job has been done. I hope that you enjoy my collection of recipes and my own spin on popular cuisines and dishes.
