Mood Ring Kitchen

I’m a self teaching home cook and aspiring foodie entrepreneur. I enjoy coming up with creative ways to prepare flavorful food such as snacks, desserts and everything in between. Cooking is a way for me to challenge myself and satisfy curiosities about different ingredients.

The hope is to produce something thoughtful, memorable or every once in a while maybe even wonderful. I enjoy following my “gut” and exploring new recipes that can be comforting, exciting and nourishing. Above all else, I enjoy exploring the emotions surrounding food and writing about those experiences. 😝👩‍🍳👩‍💻

Strange foods from the South

Being from the South, you grow up eating things at your home and family functions without question. However, as you grow older you start to notice that not everyone appreciates certain foods from the South. People from other regions are often puzzled by our distinctive cuisine.

Food Memories and Traditions

My earliest memories of enjoying food were on Sunday afternoons at my grandparent’s home. The whole family would come together every week to share a meal prepared solely by my grandmother. Cooking was her love language. She made delicious, down home dishes and was always the last one to fix […]
