Hi dolls! I just wanted to share this interview I did with Food & Wine about my love of cooking. Click through the gallery to find out Lamar’s favorite meal, my sweet and salty vices, best late night snack and more fun food facts.
Hi dolls! As you all know, I loooooove cooking! I love challenging myself and trying new things and I pretty much ALWAYS go all out LOL. For Lamar’s birthday, I wanted to cook him something special. When I asked him what he was in the mood for he told me he wanted crab since I had never cooked that before. Obviously I was up for the challenge LOL. I spent hours in the kitchen and everything came out perfectly. I made crab legs, shrimp, rice, sweet corn, chicken sausage, peach cobbler and one of Lamar’s favorites, fried chicken and biscuits. It was truly a feast and Lamar loved it! If my hubby is happy, I’m happy :)
Being the proud chef that I am, I had to take pics of my cooking masterpiece to share with all of you LOL.
Hi dolls! As you all know, I love to cook for my man, so the other night I made chicken and dumplings for dinner and a blackberry crumble for dessert ALL from scratch! I had never eaten or attempted to make chicken and dumplings before but when I asked my hubby what he wanted for dinner that was the dish he asked for, and what hubby wants, hubby gets! LOL. Little did I know that cooking this dish from scratch would take SIX hours!!! I did a little research and found a few recipes that included some shortcuts but I decided to stick with the long way. I wanted to do it right! So after a looooong day in the kitchen, I served my first homemade meal of chicken and dumplings, and Lamar LOVED it! He even invited his boys over to have some! The blackberry crumble, which I also made from scratch, was a success as well! Hats off to the chef! LOL. (more…)
I have seriously been so into cooking lately, so over the weekend I decided my next kitchen adventure would be to make my own pretzels!! They came out PERFECTLY! I was so proud of myself. I need to stop watching those cooking shows LOL. I’m addicted!!!!!
