I. LOVE. FOOD. I wake up planning lunch and go to sleep planning breakfast. The constant smile on my face usually has its origins from food.
I have not had culinary training...so by no means am I an expert in the kitchen. I grew up with a family who also enjoys cooking. I learned by watching my mom and dad.
I love food with flavor, and I'd like to share with everyone some of my recipes I have created. Feel free to comment!....GRADUATION FROM RAMEN UNIVERSITY. Please subscribe.

Fried Bananas with Brown Sugar Sauce
It's healthy right?
Isn’t it great when you take something healthy and make it

are high in potassium and generally speaking, great for the body. Now let’s add
some things that are good for the soul. I’m talking brown sugar, butter,
cinnamon…you get the picture.
