People are ADDICTED to ebonyeyedenigma's recipes!
I moved downtown in Seattle and began cooking, and everyone knew whose place the smells were coming from and I constantly had neighbors knocking on my door asking me what I was cooking, and of course I would invite them in to share my food with me. It was nice, a vindication of sorts that my mum was wrong and that I could INDEED cook!~!!
I have an twelve year old, I call him my Wee One, after my divorce from his Da (who is Argentinian) it was always us, but I found myself experimenting with different foods and making things that I knew he would never taste if it was not for me, so he has a very eclectic tongue and will try just about anything.
My mother use to make soups with a pressure cooker, or she would can things, but she cooked EVERYTHING on high and overcooked everything. My twin would cook all the time, she took the same cooking classes that I did in school, but also took a chef class in High School; to this day she hates cooking - go figure.
I use to live every day to watch Food Network and other cooking shows on PBS, to the point where I realized I was taping the shows to watch over and over again and then I had to stop the MADNESS and turn off cable. Ha, ha, ha
If you knew how many cookbooks I own... Costco sees me coming, I have to hide them from my Wee One, he thinks when I purchase a
cookbook from Costco he is entitled to a 49.00 video game...
I am a Black, Indian, Irish, and German; my own little melting pot, I am can be quite animated, childlike and gregarious at times. I enjoy laughing, as well as making others laugh. I can be stubborn, am very
determined, and independent. I like to entertain and have small dinner parties, great music, getting ideas for new recipes, enjoying life and having fun along the way. I am a child of God, a divorced mom with one child, and love to eat anything hot or spicy.
I enjoy the chemistry and mystery of food and I am always curious about how others taste buds experience my recipes, and like to kick up my recipes so that the tastebuds dance from having multiple food orgasms.
If I see a recipe I will change it to my own cooking style, generally before ever tasting it, I go by smells and am making changes adding more flavors or by getting rid of others.
To me food is all about love, when you cook something you are putting a part of yourself in that meal and showing others with your cooking that you love them; it is about celebration, family, and friends. Food brings people together that you love and it appeals to all their senses when they eat.
