About The Onyx Plate
We all have it in us…the ability to create. Whether you are creating presentations for work, a centerpiece for a party you are hosting at your home, a vacation itinerary, or crafts with your children or grandchildren. We all have it in us. I choose to create in the kitchen. It’s where I enjoy coming home from a long day at work and relieving stress. Granted, I may take out some frustration a little too well when chopping garlic or peppers…..but, it makes me happy.
I’m on a mission to cook wonderful food (aren’t we all). Food that the husband will eat, my friends will enjoy, and my Mom and Maw-Maw will wish they had come up with themselves. I take recipes from some of my favorite chefs on television and alter the recipe the way I would enjoy it or to what I have currently in stock, and sometimes I leave it just as is. No reason to mess with perfection….Although, most of the time, I am just throwing stuff together on my own or using family recipes.
You will find comfort classics, southern cuisine, easy weekend lunches, seasonal vegetables and fruit being used, and most recipes will be quite simple. By the way…not all Southern Food is fried!
So as I explore my own southern passion and growth, enjoy my blog along with me. It’s my first step to finding a better me……
