  • I thank God for my family.  Out here breaking generational curses and sharing black love. There was a time when I thought being a mom was negative because I watched so many in my family, including my mom, struggle raising kids on their own. Motherhood is a struggle but the best and loving kind of struggle.

  • Somebody’s been drinking their water and minding their business 😆. My first blog post of 2020 is up! This is the year I say YES to myself more! I’m excited about it.  I also forgot I got Fendi bag on Black Friday at a consignment store because I tucked it away before Mr started asking questions! Pretty much brand new for a small fraction of the price 🙌🏾. My dress/jacket is also on sale at @recessionistasclose! Details are on the blog. Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames
  • Y’all remember this? I saw that meme about what you call @diddy and you can tell someone’s age. Well I call him Puff. Happy Friday!  Fun fact: Peyton got some moves.  She can really dance. I don’t own the rights to this music. #puffdaddy
  • “I used to live downtown, 129th St” 🎶  My old heads know about this. That’s exactly what i look like.  Bonus points of you can tell me who or what song it’s from.  This has been my uniform (outside of my @supermomculture hoodie) over the holiday break +/- the hat. Trying to get my style mojo back for 2020! Shedding a few lbs will definitely get me inspired.

  • *This pic is from Feb 19’* Get knocked down 9 times, get up 10 - Card B. I’m looking more like my before pic but I know it’s possible because I’ve done it before.  Last year was devastating for me and I ate and drank all my emotions.  I’m back at it again.  Click the link in my bio to see what helped me achieve these results.
  • Even though my voice is gone (I’m sure Mr & the girls are happy about that 😒), I’m excited for my first speaking engagement of the year for @bcollectivemag #belevated conference this month! I’ll be giving all the tea that has helped me to secure the brands. I’m so honored to be included in the line up!
  • I was holding on by a thread most of 2019. It may continue into 2020 but I’m holding on.  I thank God for keeping me. 
@supermomculture beanie is unavailable but new 🔥 drop coming in 2020!
  • Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas 🎄. Mr is missing but he’s still around 😂. To my defense, we took these before Thanksgiving and I planned to have another shoot with him but I was tired. Anywho... what y’all get?
  • Going to @chuckecheese as a kid was a big deal. #AD.  My girls feel the same way so I was happy to take them to the newly renovated @chuckecheese in Kennesaw, GA.  When we pulled up, I was like Okay Chuck E.! From the warm new look, fresh food options, tons of games made this a great evening for the kids, while mama got to chill.  If you’re in the Atlanta area go check out the Kennesaw location, you’ll be impressed with the updates. Check it out over the holiday break. Learn more about the new look on the blog.

  • Still over here Christmas shopping.  Looks like I’ll be spending the next two nights wrapping gifts in my #clarenceclaus paper from @greentopgifts. Who else is still shopping 🙋🏾‍♀️? Outfit details are on the blog.  Link in profile. 📷 @kaynjames

Cooking with Kids: Fall Corn Chowder

October 31, 2016

This post sponsored by Mirum Shopper. Opinions are 100% my own.

I’m back with another delicious fall recipe for your family.  Temps are dropping and it’s time to put some soup in rotation.  Once the temps drop, we’ll be spending a lot of time indoors.  This is the perfect time to get the kids involved in the kitchen.  I headed to Target to take advantage of the their buy 3, get one FREE deal on select Unilever items.  I used Knorr Chicken Rice sides to make this delicious corn chowder with Peyton.

Peyton loves when I ask for her help in the kitchen.  She takes pride in the responsibilities that I give her.  Of she loves to stir continuously.

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 slices reduced sodium bacon
  • 1/2 cup leek, finely chopped, white parts only
  • 10 ounces peeled butternut squash, finely chopped (I used zucchini)
  • 2 stalks celery, finely chopped
  • 2 cups fresh corn or thawed, frozen corn
  • 8 cups water
  • 1 tub Knorr® Homestyle Stock – Reduced Sodium Chicken
  • 1 package Knorr® Rice Sides™ – Chicken flavor

DIRECTIONS

  • Cook bacon in large saucepot until crisp, about 5 minutes. Remove bacon from saucepot. Set aside and reserve drippings.
  • Cook leek, squash, celery and corn in reserved drippings over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add water and bring to boil then reduce heat to medium low and cook 10 minutes. Remove 2 cups of broth and vegetables and set aside.
  • Stir in Knorr® Homestyle Stock – Reduced Sodium Chicken and Knorr® Rice Sides™ – Chicken flavor. Cover and cook 7 minutes or until rice is tender.
  • Meanwhile, process reserved 2 cups broth and vegetables in blender until smooth; stir into saucepot and cook until heated through. Garnish, if desired, with fresh parsley and bacon.

Preparation time 10 minutes and cooking time 25 minutes.  Makes 8 cups.

*TIP: Nothing beats fresh vegetables – but frozen or canned vegetables save time and can be just as nutritious. Look for no added sugar, fat or salt varieties.

    Yummm I’ll be making this once it gets a little cooler. I add potatoes in mine & the base is a little thicker and creamier. I’m sure yours is healthier 😉
