Easy to Make Pecan Pie

Hope you all had a great Thanksgiving! I was fortunate to have the day off! But, not so fortunate in the cooking department. My mom and sis hosted this year, and I had very little time to spend in the kitchen. However, I was able to whip up a quick desert with help from my […]

Simple Works Best for us on Valentines Day


It’s Valentine’s Day and I have to be honest.  My hubby and I really didn’t have anything elaborate planned.  Since we both had to work, we celebrated early by going out to lunch with Princess over the weekend.  We agreed that we wouldn’t get each other gifts.  But, I woke up this morning thinking maybe […]

My New Food Discovery


I love trying new dishes.  I also enjoy experimenting with different types of baby food.  Princess is going through a stage of eating only cheese and pasta.  When a friend of mine recommended that I try making tofu for her, my ears perked up!   She said that her baby niece loves tofu with avocado!  I […]

A Healthier Pumpkin Bread


Ever since I was a kid I loved to bake.  Corn bread, cookies, lemon squares, brownies, are just some of my favorite treats to make.  But with the demands of school, work, and now a toddler, baking has taken a back seat.  Aside from whipping something up on special occasions, I really don’t have time […]

Dinner in a Flash


One of the most challenging things about being a working mom is finding time to cook.  Making dinner does get tedious, especially if I have to take Princess to daycare, get ready for work, and study (yeah, I’m still taking classes).  There are times when I have no time to cook for myself and my […]

WAM’s Cheesy Mac


Everyone knows that my sis makes the best mac and cheese.  If we’re having company over, she’s always the designated mac and cheese maker.  Princess loves it too, considering she is a very picky eater.  But let’s face it, I can’t expect her to make it every time I crave it.  So, I’ve come up […]

Mummy’s Jamaican Curry Chicken Recipe


I’ve been craving for some curry chicken for a while now.  Between work, classes, and tending to my one year old, it’s been pretty tough to squeeze in time for some down home cookin’.  I’ve gotten my 20 minute meals down pat.  But there are times when I want some real Jamaican food.  Sometimes my mom […]

Happy Eating!


Everyone knows that kids could be picky eaters, my baby is no different.  Before getting ready for work, I make her meals for the day.  Preparing lunch can be challenging because of certain limitations.  Since daycare doesn’t usually reheat her meals, I have to send ready to eat lunches.  I try to be creative and […]

What’s For Dinner?


I am an island girl, originally from Jamaica (not Jamaica, Queens despite what it says on Wikipedia).  So, when it comes to throwing down in the kitchen, I may know a thing or two.  I always knew that I wanted to feed my kids freshly prepared meals.  I make it a point to puree fresh […]
