Recipe Creator Ayo  Alabi

I’m a wife, mother, sister, and daughter, which is where my life of cooking comes from. Being the youngest of five, I wanted to make sure that I can cook just like my grandmother, mom, and sisters. I love inventing recipes based on my palate even if it means that my food is eclectic. Working from home and home-schooling has given the motivation to get back into developing recipes. I love working on Southern Soul food, Mexican food, Chinese stirfry dishes, and African dishes.
