Hey there I’m Rosie! Welcome to my blog, I Heart Recipes!
I was born and raised in Seattle Washington, and I grew up in a single mother household along with my younger brother. While growing up, we struggled just like anyone else in the “hood”. We weren’t strangers to food stamps, nor were we too proud to stand in the food bank lines. Whatever we had, was what we had. There was no ands, ifs, or buts, about it! Like seriously, we practically lived off of beans and rice, chicken, and greens up. Being “poor” taught me how to improvise, and make something out of nothing dishes. Now as far as actually cooking, that is something I’ve been doing since forever. My mother taught me how to cook at a very young age. Before I was 12, I could easily make a full course meal, without any assistance.
Now I am a busy wife and mother. That loves to cook, bake, and share my recipes. I cook EVERYTHING from Soul Food/ Southern Dishes, Caribbean Dishes, amazing desserts, and more! Although, I love to make, and eat fabulous dishes, I am always very conscious on how much I spend on groceries( I’m very frugal!). Not only do I share fantastic recipes, I make sure that they are budget friendly ( well at least 90%) of the time. Other than sharing recipes, I sometimes share money saving tips ( couponing, and leftovers recipes), to help you stretch your dollar!
Please feel free to browse my recipes, and leave me comment or two! XOXO
