Throwback Thursday | Kitchen Edition


Given that it’s Thursday, I couldn’t resist doing a throwback post to share some of my favorite meals I’ve made over the years. When I developed a huge interest in cooking around 2006-2007, I started simple. From there, I began to experiment with ingredients I had never come across before as well as add nutritional twists to classic meals. There were some not-so-awesome meals in there at times, but overall, I believe my creations were quite enjoyable.

Below are just a few of my favorites. I apologize for the photo quality not being the best, but these were some of my first food photos that I took and shared. 😉 As always, I hope these spark some ideas for you all!

🎉 Today would’ve been my mom’s 60th birthday, so I’d like to wish her the happiest of birthdays! I would love to have baked her favorite red velvet cake. 🎂
