Well… Zora’s Lounge is doing another The Chocolate Bar event on October 3rd. If you recall I attended the previous event, and left with mixed feelings. I loved the idea and the vision that they had, but was slightly blinded by the execution of it. I have hope that they will improve this event. Anyway, […]

As lovers of great food, and especially Soul Food, we tend to frequent small mom and pop restaurants. Being in the South, we to try to give our dining dollars and support to fellow Black owned businesses, that happen to have great food. This policy of ours is becoming harder to continue. What’s the reason […]
Here is the last event to help fill up your weekends. The Soul Food Festival. Bet you didn’t know one of those existed. I was really taken aback when I saw the size of this event, and the numerous cities that it is taking place. It has many musical groups for the “Grown Folks” crowd. […]
Sorry for the lull in posting, but I needed a good vacation to revive my spirit. Now that it is refreshed, revived and renewed I can burn it up. We went on a cruise to the Western Caribbean, and had a blast. I see that not a lot has happened in Soul music lately, so I’ll do what […]

Going low carb, it limits your choices for any satisfaction for your sweet tooth. In comes their new Sugar Blend. I was actually shocked at the taste, compared to the Full O’ Fat version.
This meal was a spur of the moment choice. I was at the grocery store, and couldn’t think of what to cook for dinner. I wanted something mostly healthy, but had a taste for fried pork chops. I knew I could pull together a salad with no problem, but what about a 2nd veggie? I chose yellow squash […]
Last night I had plans to try out our new Emeril’s Grill & Panini maker on my chicken breast seasoning recipe. After taking it out the box, and assembling it, I had the urge to use the normal charcoal grill. So, I’ll have to review the Emeril Grill later in the week. My aim with […]
[singlepic=35,420,360,,center] Good afternoon. I’m posting this recipe just in time for a friend that is under the weather. This is a great savory soup, that will warm those chilled bones after being out Christmas shopping. It is very easy to create, since you are just putting all the ingredients, bringing to a boil, then simmering. […]
Ever sometimes lose that cooking spirit, and don’t know how to get it back? I have found the cure for that aliment. Find yourself a local farmers market, tour for one hour. In Memphis, TN there is a great one on Winchester. It is very large, and has been here for years. Wall to wall it contains […]
Here is my famous secret ingredient cheese cake. I have perfected this through the years, and I even used to sell these in NJ. It’s a very simple cheese cake that you have to bake. It’s just simple four ingredients. You can put the mix in a 9″ graham crust pie pan, made […]
Good afternoon. This is a little late, but it’s the first real post. This morning we were up early and wanted something different for breakfast. Well… How different can you really get for breakfast?
