Prince: Vegan Royalty

In honor of a musical legend, my soul pushed me to find my own way to salute an amazing musician that blessed my soul with sooo much music. Music that traveled through the house alongside the aromas of the meals I’ve prepared.

Did I tell you that my Husband is an AMAZING DJ? Well he absolutely is, and the majority of the time while I’m preparing our famiIy meals ... he is spinning!

Tequila – How to use it outside of Taking Shots

I have a respectful passion for Tequila. My lust for Tequila started back in 1995, when my husband and I went to Windsor celebrating his graduation from the University of Detroit.

Taco Tuesday

Who wouldn't want tacos on Tuesday?

Seriously, after a great weekend, you have to come face to face with Monday (grrrrr), leaving you physically drained and waiting for the weekend to come back around again. Then, Taco Tuesday arrives and it gives you the boost you need, because you know...a fresh, savory taste is coming...wrapped in a warm tortilla and topped with all the fixings - fresh lettuce, tomato, salsa, and guacamole!!! #BlessGod!! Mexican Black beans topped with sriracha (I’m hungry right now!!)

I was trying to figure out the best way to kick off The Cooking with Que blog, but it had to be simple...and incorporate something that everyone loves. #TACOS!!!! (Come on saints… I know your mouths are watering right now lol!!!!) The #TacoTuesday hashtag has taken over the web and I make a pretty tasty Taco (let’s be honest) soooo……. WHY NOT #CookingWithQue for #TacoTuesday?
