Recently I hosted a jerk making workshop at Nubian Hueman with my girl DJ Jaz Dux. We vibed out to nothing but reggae chunes, drank rum punch, and made our own jerk (recap coming soon)! I already talked about how much I love jerk and why I was inspired to do this workshop here. I tried this recipe several different ways, more sweet, more heat, and no garlic and I love this version of it.
TMI alert! Sometimes I like to fast for the first half of the day when I feel bloated, ate too much, or I need to get things moving 💩. I’ll drink tons of lemon water and/or #fresh juice. This morning I made celery, green apple, and lemon #juice and it was so good I had to share. I love tart so this was right up my alley. I used the brevel
What You’ll Need
- 2 large stalks of celery
- 2 large lemons (no skin)
- 9 Green apples
All together it made two of the bottles pictured. Just what I needed. Enjoy.

I’m super late but I wanted to share this article about some of my favorite places to go eat and drink in DC!
It’s hot AF. So I’ve been opting for flowy, breezy outfits as of late. It’s my hopeless attempt to not be completely uncomfortable during my commute, because for the most part I’m freezing my balls off at work and melting my buns off on my to work. But alas it’s a losing battle. I suppose dueling temps are the working girls eternal struggle. Anywho, here is what I wore.
Infused was such a blast and I had such a great time sharing my tips and tricks. Infused spirits are one of my go-to party tricks while entertaining. My philosophy for homemaking is that it should be simple but well done. As you will see from the recipes, you can pull together a great cocktail with minimal effort and ingredients that are easy to find. The possibilities are endless, but my two favorite flavors are ginger gin and hibiscus gin. During the workshop I shared my tips for beginner infusers, we made the hibiscus and ginger gin and then cocktails! Everyone had such great questions, which I captured below in the tips section.
Having good teeth was always something that my mother stressed when we were young. It’s one of those things that she did not have until she was an adult and as kids she wanted us to have. I refused braces, because I didn’t think I needed them, but white teeth?! Sign me up. Back in the day we simply used to dunk our tooth brushes into a box of baking soda and call it a day. Now there are so many options, but with my sensitive gums I keep going back to old faithful. In addition to baking soda I’ve added activated charcoal to the mix. If you want, you can use them separately but I’ve found that the mix works wonders on my teeth and is a bit less harsh than using baking soda alone.
Most salads are pretty lame. Lettuce, cucumber, tomato, blah, blah…😴. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t mind a simple salad but Summer is the perfect time to spice them up with grilled veggies. Grilling makes everything better. If you don’t have an outside grill, get yourself a cast iron stovetop grill pan for similar results! You can also roast the veggies.
Using infused spirits is one of my favorite ways to enhance a cocktail. During the workshop we will make two of my favorite flavors, hibiscus and ginger gin. In addition learn how to make a tasty drink with your infused liquor.
All supplies will be provided with RSVP. Choose one of the two flavors to make and take home. Join me for a fun night of cocktails and infusions!
