Birthday Feasting

Yesterday was my birthday, and I actually made and ate one of my favorite recipes on my blog  Sweet ‘n’ Sticky Baby Back Ribs. I started thinking of what other things I would eat for a birthday feast, and came up with a menu for my birthday. Mind you, I didn’t actually make all of […]

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt

Brown Sugar-Vanilla Frozen Yogurt is actually the ingredient list. Brown sugar + vanilla + yogurt = creamy and tangy goodness. As I am writing this the temperature outside is nearing 110°, and my entire duct system, furnace and air conditioner are being replaced. Considering the old Day and Night system was new when my parents […]

Olive Oil Cake with Pine Nuts and Currants

Olive Oil Cake with Pine Nuts and Currants

Roasting tomatillos, onion, garlic and jalapeno changes and deepens the flavors of these vegetables and aromatics. It softens the harsh edges of the jalapeno and […]

Mango Ginger Green Smoothie

  Mother’s Day has just passed here in America. It was my first without my mother, and the void she left was felt. But it was also the first one that my daughter really understood. She made me a small bouquet of tissue paper flowers in a painted cardboard vase. They are the most beautiful […]

The Lemony Cricket Cocktail

A great cocktail is a wonderful thing. I have been making my own limoncello for the last year, since my Meyer lemon trees produce huge amounts of fruit twice a year.

The Black Girl’s Top 10 Recipes of 2013

Looking back at this tumultuous year I have had, I was not surprised that I honestly could not remember a lot of the recipes I developed and published. I have been living day to day, not looking back nor too far forward. Just making sure my child is taken care of, the pets are taken […]
