My name is Shauntay and I am a self-proclaimed “Glam greedy girl” who is on a mission to share my passion for cooking with millennial women all over the world. My goal is to inspire millennials to become more comfortable in the Kitchen. It is my belief that our mothers and grandmothers should not be the only people in the family that are able to make delicious meals that are full of flavor and love. I grew up in south Florida, which is a melting pot of various cooking styles and had access to every type of soul food, seafood, and Caribbean food you can think of. I can remember watching in amazement as my mother skillfully prepared many southern and international dishes, which later led me to become curious about recreating the same outcome. As I got older, cooking not only became my passion but also my therapy as I went through various trials. My Kitchen is a place where I can turn on my favorite music , pour myself a cocktail or glass of wine, and create a tasty masterpiece. Cooking does not have to be a headache or a hassle, and If I can make the Kitchen less spooky to my fellow millennial, then I have done my job.
