Have You Ever Been to Detroit Vegan Soul in Detroit?


I come to you bearing great news on food! Since I'm #OBSESSED with sharing.... I need to share with you some of my favorite restaurants, since I have been on this Vegan journey!

On my birthday...August 29th.....of...well a few years ago, my husband realized that since I'd gone Vegan there was no place that I'd been where I could order ANY AND EVERYTHING on the menu!

Well listen, he took me to Detroit Vegan Soul, and my heart melted, just as fast as the morsels a food did into my mouth! THIS PLACE IS EVERYTHING!!!!!  The atmosphere is comfy and homely. The menu consists of all the soul food that regular Meat Eaters love, but a 
Vegan twist.  The owners are the nicest ladies ever. Their staff reflects the same, super nice, courteous, very involved in making sure you had an awesome experience, and they have tasted everything on the menu and will give you honest feedback 🙂

The first few times I went to this spot,  I ordered the same thing! The

7 things that successful people do before 8 a.m.

Good Morning

I thought about you! God woke me up and the first person he had me think about was YOU!

What will make you better today than what you were yesterday. That was my thought after being the last person to go to sleep, but being the first person awake, gives you a different perspective. I wanted to tell YOU that YOU ARE LOVED! I wanted to share with you some of the things that I do before 8 am.

It will be IMPORTANT TO YOU! It will make your day better.

1. Pray

My relationship with God is the most important thing in my life, and it keeps me sane, and mentally ready for anything that could happen today. Why you may ask? It does. My brain says we are here for a bigger purpose than to just serve ourselves. We are here to build the kingdom, so I pray for everyone, and if there are specific people on my heart, or my prayer wall, I do so.

First things first, I don’t make regular Mac N Cheese at my house anymore! Did you hear that?

It tastes WONDERFUL! It has all the creamy goodness, all the cheesy flavor as regular Mac N Cheese! I’m not joking, you are just going to have to try it yourself!

Quick Eggplant Recipe for Dinner #Vegan or Not!

Eggplant is a Fruit that everyone thinks if a vegetable, and on top of that, many of us walk by it because its not a normal item that people cook everyday in a regular household.

That’s all about to change after today. This recipe is super simple, and easy.  It tastes pretty fricking amazing. My husband is not an Eggplant lover, but he ate it, and said, “Make it like this every time.”  That my friends is sign that I did my job! LOL!  The kids #HulkSmashed it as well!  I feel pretty accomplished!

Its great for you too! Eggplant is a great source of dietary fiber, Vitamin B1 and Copper. This fruit is loaded with manganese, vitamin B6, niacin, potassium, folate and vitamin K. (more…)

Eggplant is a Fruit?!

At first glance, you notice the beautiful deep purple color. It looks more like a work of art than a vegetable. The eggplant is regal, I imagine the eggplant being high society in the fruit world.

Eggplants belong to the nightshade family of fruit, which also includes tomatoes, sweet peppers and potatoes. They grow in a manner much like tomatoes, hanging from the vines of a plant that grows several feet in height. While the different varieties do range slightly in taste and texture, one can generally describe the eggplant as having a pleasantly bitter taste and spongy texture.

My Saturday Morning Go To – Redskins

Hey Family 🙂

This is a super simple recipe that can be used for Breakfast, Lunch or Dinner. In our house, Saturday mornings this is the go to.

Redskins are my choice of potato because when I cook them, I leave the skin on. The skin is thin and filled with nutrients, fiber, b vitamins, iron and potassium, just to name a few.

What’s crazy is that half the fiber in this potato comes from the actual skin!!!

So leave that skin on, and get to cooking 🙂

Click here for the full recipe.

Try it out for yourself, and like I always say, my tastebuds and your tastebuds are different, so season it to taste!

When you make it, snap a pic and tag me on Instagram, #CookingWithQue.

Until next time, may your tastebuds be Forever Satisfied!

The Funniest Vegan Grocery Shopping Trip Ever

Listen, it's the day before Labor Day and one of my great friends, Damon Johnson, decides he wants to do the #357VeganChallenge. Please understand that he does not like to follow rules. He wants to do it now, not when he is supposed to, the last week of the month. He wants to do it right after the holiday, and he wants me to be his personal grocery shopper ( I didn’t even know that was in my title)!

Now, this all sounds well, but he picked a day where I have no staff; I have my 2 sons and that’s it. My daughter was at Grandma's, my Husband was sleeping, Liz was in a different state, and both of my peeps, Jordette and Angelyn, were on completely opposite sides of town.

I know my son who just turned 14 was not the videographer of choice for this this experience, but sometimes you have to make it work.  He was not prepared for us, because when Damon and I get together, it’s a spontaneous combustion of, personalities, attitude, fun… actually I don’t even know what to call it. IT’S FANTASTICAL!!!!
