Salmon with White Wine Sauce

I've been getting requests for non-bacon recipes *cough* Janay *cough* ...  so here's one for ya: Salmon with White Wine Sauce.

*1 salmon fillet
Salt & Pepper
Joe's Stuff (A special seasoning from my beloved NOLA)
1 TB Butter
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 c. white wine
1 c. rice
Olive oil

1. Season salmon fillets with salt, pepper, and Joe's Stuff.  Cajun seasoning will do just fine.

2. Pour oil in your pan, place your salmon skin side down.  Cook for about 4-5 minutes on each side.

3. In a small saucepan melt butter and whisk in your minced garlic.  Add wine and bring to a boil while constantly whisking.

4. Place your salmon over your rice then pour your sauce over your salmon.

Now you may eat.

*Obviously the portions for this recipe are for one person since, ya know, I'm living that single life...

"You Look Like You Can Sing"

Recently, I was out to dinner and there was a live band performing in the restaurant. The band, and their groupies, were doing some crowd participation when one of the groupies pointed at me and said those dreaded words: "You look like you can sing!"

Can I sing? Of course I can. But that's not the point! The hell is it about me that makes people think I can sing? Oh, maybe it's cuz I'm Black and a big girl. RACIST!

This is not the first (nor will it be the last) time someone has asked me this question. Anytime a plus size singer/actress gets famous the comparisons start:

LaTocha Scott from Xscape.



Ok, maybe not Adele but you get my point.

The moral of the story: Well, there is no moral to this story.

Bacon Vanilla Pancakes

Just to solidify by reign as the Queen of Bacon, I bring to you Bacon Vanilla Pancakes. (I'll give you a minute to process.) And yes, they taste as good as they sound. And they were mad easy to make.

Pancake Mix
Just a pinch of Vanilla Extract

*A piece of advice: you can put as much or as little bacon as you want in each pancake. I did a 2 pancakes to 1 strip of bacon ratio. Feel free to do whatever you want.

  1. Fry your bacon, as much as or as little as you want.  (For you non-pork eaters, I guess you could do this with turkey bacon *rolls eyes*)

2.  Mix your pancake mix and pour it into your pan.

3.  Right before you get ready to flip the pancakes (when the batter starts bubbling) sprinkle bacon crumbles into your pancake.  Again, as much or as little as you want.

4.   Flip your pancake.

This is what the finished pancake looks like on the bottom.

5. Voila!

Trust me, you'll thank me later.

An Outfit Post?? Whaaa??

Y'all still there or nah? I know, I know, I've been MIA. Between running a preschool & running a preschool I have such little time to post. Actually, I am writing the post to let you guys know that if you wanna keep up with my outfits (and trust me you do) you should definitely follow me on Instagram...that's where the magic happens.

Okay, now onto this outfit. I wore this dress recently while out to brunch with one of my friends. He was visiting from Cali so we decided to hit up our old Harlem brunch go-to. Obviously, I looked cute. Actually, I bought this dress and was gonna take it back cuz I thought the hemline was weird. But, this blue is stunning on me & the dress fits me amazingly...who am I to deny the world this body.

Dress: Forever 21+
Shoes: Guess

Book Review: Platinum

This book is about the lives of four women in hip hop.  It's kinda what Love & Hip Hop was supposed to be, minus Stevie J.  It talks about some familiar stories in hip hop: cheating, drug use, cheating, infedelity, money and cheating.

The book was pretty good with a lot of twists and turns.  Although some of the stories are a bit ripped from the headlines, it's still an interesting read.
