Summer Samosas

Summer samosas. Samosas. Samosas. Samosas. It’s that time of week again. Time for my Summer Series. This week I am finally taking you to the more western part of Asia, Indian. And I’m giving you a recipe for one of my favorite Indian appetizers, samosas. With Indian food being so decadent, it’s nearly impossible to…

“Black” in America

“Black” in America. I  have such a unique experience and sometimes I’m scared to express it. Is my black experience in America valid? Or did I live the wrong life and now I can’t share it? Did I live in the right neighborhood? Did I strut the right style? Did I like the right foods?…

Summer Stickers.

Summer Stickers. Pot stickers. Pot stickers. Pot stickers. I don’t remember when I had my first pot sticker, but whenever it was it sure got me hooked. There was something about how the dough and meat simultaneously melted in your mouth that just captivated me. This bite size snack had me so enchanted I didn’t…

Post Grad Feels.

Post Grad Feels. Fogged. The world around me, blurred pixels. These days I’m absolutely lost. LOST.

A Graduated Look.

Do It For Who?

Do It For Who? Laying in bed with only string lights to illuminate my pages, I opened my journal for the first time in months. The sound of Kari Jobe serenaded my sheets. Anxiety was creeping up like acid reflux. I sat praying for a spiritual Tums to suppress my anxiety, just enough so I…

Senior Shenanigans

If you looked for me during any other school year you’d probably find me behind a closed-door with my head buried in some sort of book. But this year was my last year of undergrad and after five long years I decided to not just open the door and put down the book, but I…

Summer Wraps.

Summer Wraps. Hey! I’m back! And with the revamping of my blog, I thought I’d give y’all a Food Series!

A Samaritan Kind of Love

A Samaritan Kind of Love. I’ve read it a few times. Heard the story countless times. Yet in a blink of an eye it all came to me in a fresh new way. The words came popping off the page in a manner I never knew existed, they penetrated my soul giving me insight I thought…

Despite Me.

Despite Me. Look at me. Look at where I sit now. Looking at me like nothing happened. But something did happen. I doubted my ability to be in this exact room, this exact seat. The seat housed in an institution that looked too prestigious, too intelligent for a girl like myself. Too expensive for a…

Biffster Love

Biffster Love. You may ask… “What’s a biffster?” Honestly I wasn’t quite sure what it was myself until I met Inga. She is the perfect embodiment of a best friend and a sister. Thus a biffster. And she demonstrated the validity of this title this summer when she took a little flight from Yonkers, New…
