Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skulls | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Dia de los Muertos Sugar Skulls

    I have always been a huge fan of Mexican folk art created for Dia de los Muertos, or The Day of the Dead. This holiday is a celebration of the ancestors, a day for families to gather and clean the grave sites of the departed and to feast. Elaborate altars or ofrendas are […]

Caribbean Style Goat Curry | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Caribbean Style Curry Goat

    There are days when I miss living in Brooklyn, NY. Being a born and bred California girl, living in New York was so different, so strange and so stimulating to all my senses.  I can vividly remember the first time I took the A train up to Harlem. A sea of various shades […]

Ramen Salad with Roasted Eggplant and Shishito Peppers | Black Girl Chef's Whites

Ramen Salad with Roasted Eggplant and Shishito Peppers

  There is so much more to ramen than the sodium laden noodles with dehydrated vegetable and seasoning packs.  Don’t get me wrong, those packets of Top Ramen got me through college, but my palate has since become more refined. Traditionally ramen noodles are served in a bowl of rich broth, with assorted accompaniments such […]

Slow Cooker Roast Chicken with Potatoes

    She’s not the most beautiful chick(en), but she is succulent.

Banana Split Pie

Banana Split Pie with Chocolate-Rum Sauce Recipe

I really enjoy dessert, but don’t always want to put in the effort of making it.  Which is good, because with my inherited sweet tooth (thanks mom) I’d be big as a house!  I actually do like to bake, but for the previously mentioned reason, won’t do it very often.  But this easy to make […]

Christmas Cookie Masterpieces!

Yes, they are masterpieces! Created by five and six year old artists in my daughter’s kindergarten class with nothing more than food coloring pens and crispy, Christmas shaped cookies made from the Master Cookie Dough. This isn’t a new recipe using the master cookie dough. I just wanted to share these delightful creations that brought […]
