Me and my brother were always in the kitchen, watching my mother cook and bake. Although we didn’t have much, my mother made restaurant style masterpieces out of what was there and had the house smelling like kumbaya. From her authentic soul food dishes to our Latin roots, there was nothing my mother couldn’t make, and it definitely rubbed off on me.”
