Soul Rolls

I am back with another collaboration with some of my favorite black food bloggers, this time celebrating Juneteenth once again.  I have given the dets on the significance of Juneteenth in a previous blog post (check that out here!). In the year since then, the push for Juneteenth to become a national holiday continues to grow with many of the efforts centered right in Galveston, Texas where the holiday began!  Check out the Juneteenth Legacy Project for more of those details.  As for me, I continue to use Juneteenth as another opportunity to highlight the greatness that is African American [...]

Feta Pasta Bake

There is FINALLY a food trend that I can participate in.  Food bloggers and Instagrammers hop on the latest trend filling your feeds with some new recipe or new food trick.  A few months ago it was the Dalgona whipped coffee and since I am not a coffee drinker, I had to sit back with fomo as the rest of my foodie friends joined in.   Then, the feta pasta bake or as I like to call Instagram pasta, made its way to my feed.  An easy pasta recipe featuring cheese and a tomato sauce.  It had my name written all [...]

Smoked Turkey Collard Greens

For the first time ever, my mother tasked me with making the collard greens for Thanksgiving.  Typically I make everything else, but she makes the greens.   Similar to mac and cheese, the collard green duty isn’t just bestowed on just anyone.  So I definitely felt the pressure to knock this out of the park.   Chatted with some friends and of course the internet to come up with my very own collard greens.  After I was finishing off a bowl of just collard greens the day after Thanksgiving, I realized that this recipe justttt might be it, so I am sharing [...]

Graham Cracker Crust Sweet Potato Pie

My love of all things sweet potato is well documented here on Black Girls Who Brunch.  I've stuffed it in cinnamon rolls, put in muffins, added it to ice cream, even made a pudding out of it.  But the one quintessential sweet potato dish was missing, a Sweet Potato Pie.  Some years ago, I had the idea to go with a graham cracker crust rather than the traditional pastry crust.  It took some tries and Thanksgiving experiments to get it right, but I think I have finallllly mastered a Graham Cracker Crust Sweet Potato Pie.  This recipe plays on my [...]

Sweet Potato Trifle

If you have been around Black Girls Who Brunch for awhile you know I LOVE all things Sweet Potato! This love honestly grew out of watching my pinterest feed fill up with pumpkin spice recipes every fall.  As I scroll all of the pumpkin recipes I imagine upgrading them with sweet potato instead.  Since no one was doing god's work and converting all of these recipes to sweet potato, I decided to take on the challenge myself.   Hence my latest creation a Sweet Potato Trifle!  Imagine this as a deconstructed sweet potato pie or kind of like a banana pudding.  [...]

Easy Chicken Salad

I had a recent discovery while working from home or rather a rediscovery.  Remember lunchables as a kid?  If you were like me, lunchables were a bit of a treat cause my mom wasn't buying them every week!  Well, a few weeks back I was strolling through Sprouts and saw what was labeled as a "snack pack."  One glance at this and I knew it was nothing more than an adult lunchable!  It featured chicken salad, cheese, crackers and grapes.  I grabbed one and was quickly obsessed.  With any store bought thing, if I like it enough I'm going to [...]

Almond Flour Olive Oil Cake

While I do not have a gluten allergy, I appreciate the variety of flours that are now available for those that do including almond flour.   With any alternative, there are pluses and minuses so I thought I would experiment to learn more about almond flour and how to incorporate in to my baking.  I decided to go for an olive oil cake, a light one layer cake typically served without icing for my first experiment.  The final product is delicious playing on the almond flavors which are elevated a bit with almond extract, and a hint of orange.  This Almond [...]

Air Fryer Salmon

I have shared my love for my air fryer over the last few months, so I am sure no one is surprised that I am back with another recipe!  When I got my air fryer, my sister swore that salmon was the best thing to make in the air fryer.  My mind kept seeing the air fryer as a replacement for frying items on the stove.  Since I would never drop salmon in a pot of oil, it did not make sense to "air fry" salmon.   Welp, I finally did and I am SOLD!  For dishes like chicken and fried [...]
