About Me

Hi, Friends!

Welcome to my blog!! This is my little space on this vast world wide web.

I’m Ann, and I’m so thrilled that you stopped by today. This is where I will share what is going on in my kitchen and around the home front.

I have been married to my pretty awesome Husband The wiz for over 7 years now. We have three kids: Jonathan, Jade and Jocelyn. There will never be an apt description for my 3 little love bugs. We wake up proud and go to bed content because of them. #ProudMommaBear!!! We also have a dog, his name is Mr. Snicker.

In a fearless moment, I told my husband to help me set up my blog and he enthusiastically walked me through it step by step. So here is my promise, I will always openly share from my dinner table and heart.

So now that I have officially over shared, I hope you have gotten to know better. The concept for this blog came about when The wiz and I first got married. As a young married couple, we thought we needed to finally get this cooking thing under our belts. Well, I went to Barnes and Noble and literally bought 20 cookbooks. From that moment forward we rarely ate out because the satisfaction of making a meal at home was way more valuable than eating out. A spark was lit and that grew into a flame. I am so excited to finally have this space where I can share from my table, with love.  I usually post about  3-4 times a week.

  1. Biscuits!!!!!!! Thanks so much for this recipe, cooking maniac. Perfection! And just as good after freezing and thawing and heating in the oven! I wanted to post on the biscuit page but couldn’t get it to work. It was probably me. 😀

  2. I made the baked sea bass last night. It was incredible. The flavor of the jerk rub on the fish is something I have never experienced before. Keep it up and I am sure I will be getting more recipes from here.

  3. Ann, I’m an ole Texas Bisquit conasouir (70 years+) so I know a thing or two about’m.
    I’ve indulged in these delights in every southern state in the union and (much to my daring) even a few northern ones.

    While not saying these are the best ever been, I am saying there’s never been any better.
    Tippin’ my hat to your grandma!

    Well done young lady!

    Ann, the biscuit recipe is excellent. These look and taste like my granny’s recipe! Thank you so much. Is there a way to upload a photograph of my biscuits?

  5. LaToya Thomas says:

    Thanks for the recipe Ann! The biscuits are fluffy and amazing…just like my grandmothers biscuits. My family loves them!

    Hi Ann,

    Finally, I have found a great biscuit recipe and I love it and my Husband is so excited about it too. Grandma’s Flaky Buttermilk Biscuit recipe is everything I’ve been looking for.

    Thank You,

    Darrie in Maryland

    1. That makes me so incredibly happy Dale. I told my grandmother and she was over the moon. 🙂

  8. I just found your blog. Your grandmother’s biscuits are in my oven at this very moment. I am going to try the short ribs next week! I like how straight forward and delicious your recipes look. Thank you for sharing them.

  9. Hi Congrats on your website ! You have many recipes I would like to try. I wanted to make biscuits this morning and remembered I ran out of baking powder. Oh well…

  10. Sherry Hill says:

    These biscuits are absolutely amazing! The very first to point out that over handling is what causes tough biscuits. This recipe is going into my box and will be our little secret! Thanks for sharing it with us.

  11. These biscuits turned out amazing! I had to use 2% milk because that’s all I had and they still turned out great! I have tried so many recipes for biscuits and they have all turned out so bad but these were so light and fluffy and had layers a mile high! Thank you for sharing!

    I am so happy to have stumbled across your wonderful blog, young lady!

    Last night I made your orange cumin chicken recipe using Cornish hens. I served it with Yotam Ottolenghi’s red rice quinoa salad. Oooowee – Nirvana could never taste this good! Now I am impatient to try your other recipes.

    1. Hi Madeleine! I am so glad you enjoyed it!!!!! Try away and let me know how you like the other recipes. 🙂

        Question did I read the recipe for the oxtail stew correctly 7-8 hrs on high

  13. I had lost my grandmother’s recipe and I found this one which looks as easy as hers. Can’t wait to try them. I use to watch her make them but she always did hers in a bowl and seemed to know when it was mixed just right and then kneaded it for a few moments. Me I tend to over knead at times I forget this isn’t a sourdough or rye bread I’m working with.
