My name is Tangie Holifield and Welcome to my blog “On The Menu @ Tangie’s Kitchen”.
I have a confession to make……I am a foodie and I LOVE to cook!
Cooking has always been a hobby of mine, since I was 9 years old and after 20+ years as a research scientist, I think I have found my true calling in life.
As a foodie and a home cook, with a passion for food and growing my own vegetables in my back yard, I am inspired by the Southern foods and desserts cooked by my grandmothers and mother and the global cuisines found on the continents of Africa, Europe, South America and Asia.
My point of view about food in general is that it should be “sustainable soul food”; that food should be fresh, healthy, wholesome and affordable.
I also believe that as a chef or home cook, you must bring your whole self to the table if you want to thrive in today’s crazy world: your personality, your sense of humor, and most importantly, your heart. All of these elements brought me to create On The Menu @ Tangie’s Kitchen back in 2013. Since then, the blog has been thriving, and has quickly gained a loyal following.
In the meantime, I invite you to browse my site, take a look at the photos, make a comment or two on the posts, learn about my passions and explore what excites and interests you as well.
I hope that you will enjoy reading my blog and that I have inspired both the novice cooks and veterans alike.
