Drake & Party & friends

I had a realization recently about how much I listen to drake and partynextdoor and how often I try not to put them on my monthly playlists (cause I feel like drake is on every single one) but then I thought why run from what I love. So, this is a playlist made almost entirelyContinue reading “Drake & Party & friends”

Orange Cauliflower

I was disappointed by my daughters lack of interest in this meal too. Out of the 3 meals I tried to introduce to her the cauliflower alfredo was the only meal she really liked. This orange cauliflower was actually really good. I didn’t even force my daughter to try it because she helped me breadContinue reading “Orange Cauliflower”

Easy Lunch & Talk

For lunch today I took another note out of Ellen Fisher’s YouTube videos. Her recipes are just simple and easy for a single mom like myself. As I’ve stated I’ve struggled getting my 3 year old to eat actual vegetables even though she’s vegetarian (moving her away from dairy now) I know this is partiallyContinue reading “Easy Lunch & Talk”

What I’m Reading

My brother gifted me We Are the One’s We Have Been Waiting For by Alice Walker a few years ago for Christmas and I’ve reread it 3 times already. It’s a book that continues to teach you lessons and gives you many “ah ha” moments no matter the amount of times you read it. DifferentContinue reading “What I’m Reading”

Toni Morrison Tribute

I came back to it again in college with a little more understanding after studying metaphors in poetry. I knew this book was for black girls like me who hadContinue reading “Toni Morrison Tribute”
