Holiday Dishes That Hit

 

KiNiMi Kitchen’s Quick Side Dishes Perfect For Any Holiday

If you’re anything like me or my family, you’re still thinking through your holiday menu. Are we going traditional this year? Will we try something completely different? Is brunch an option…? And after going through a long list of maybe this, maybe that, I don’t care, and I don’t feel like cooking, you’re contemplating catered or store bought. But before you dish the home cooked meal and scour the market for caterer/restaurant recommendations, check out my latest feature because she’ll have you happily selecting quick side dishes that are perfect and can be prepared at home.

The Patched Denim (or not so denim) Jacket You Need This Fall

This fall I have an obsession with patched denim. Okay… so it actually started before this fall, but after scouring the market for a patched denim jacket, I ended up empty handed. Either the shape of  the jacket was off, or I just didn’t like the patches. I even thought about DIYing it, but quickly abandoned that idea in the interest of time and the thought of ruining a perfectly good denim jacket.

Feature Friday – Interview with Brandon

Happy Friday! So… February is coming to an end, but I’m sneaking in one last feature this month. If you’ve been following, you know I’ve been incorporating black history and black history makers into my posts. I’ve loved the way the posts and pics have turned out, and I thought it would be cool to end the month by featuring Brandon Williams, the photographer who has been behind some of my notable pics.

Feature Friday – Interview with Isaac

 

 

 

 


I’m excited to keep the Feature Friday series going, and as mentioned in the last Feature Friday post, this month I’m featuring black history makers. Isaac, today’s feature, definitely fits the bill. He’s a social engineer, business strategist, assistant professor, and entrepreneur. He also happens to be stylish.

So Isaac, for those reading who may not know you, tell us a little about yourself and what you do.

For starters, I’m a first-generation American and the first-born child of immigrant parents.  My mother and father left Ghana many years ago to pursue a new world, which resulted in me being a true diasporan.  I consider myself to be a pure social engineer, a person focused on solving social problems using an engineering mindset.

Feature Friday – Interview with Mariah

 


Feature Friday 

“I’ve always loved reading and writing. I was in a short story contest in 3rd grade and I think I got 2nd or 3rd place. Ever since then, I figured I would either read or write for a living.” – Mariah

Feature Fridays are back, and I’m really excited about the features I have lined up this month! In honor of black history month I’m intentionally featuring black history makers in my Feature Friday posts. First up, I have a fellow blogger, lawyer, and advocate. She’s a great writer, and happens to be using her skills to acknowledge and celebrate the contributions of black people this month (in this country and abroad) through a collection of poems.
