About Michelle

Hi and thank you for visiting Supper With Michelle..

I am Michelle Braxton and “Supper with Michelle” is a place for me to share some of my recipes and experiences in the kitchen with you all.  From what I can remember, I’ve been cooking since the age that I could reach the stove. I spent a lot of time in the kitchen with my awesome Mom, growing up. One of the very first things that she taught me how to cook was “Cheese Grits” and those are a staple in my house even now, thanks Mom! With all of the years that I’ve spent in the kitchen, I’ve truly gained a passion for cooking. Since 2005, I’ve made many personal strides in living a “healthier” lifestyle, not just in what I eat, but in everything I do. While browsing through my blog, you may find that I primarily prepare Vegetarian, Vegan, and some Pescetarian dishes/meals. I enjoy experimenting with various spices and ingredients and I try to incorporate as many seasonal, natural and wholefood ingredients into my recipes whenever possible.

I do a lot of cooking by sight and by habit, so some measurements that I give are good estimations that should work for these dishes. I do recommend that you taste and season as you go, especially when it comes to seasoning vegetables and fruits. The flavor and the ripeness of your fruits and veggies will dictate how you should season the recipe. Some are milder, sweeter, and some are saltier, so keep that in mind as you go. And also keep in mind, that cooking is all a matter of taste…and what you like. So I highly encourage you to experiment and alter my recipes as well to fit and suit your taste buds, that is when you feel comfortable to do so.

The name “Supper with Michelle” stems from time spent with an amazing woman by the name of Mrs. Marzie Conley. She felt very much like a Grandmother to me and I was so very fortunate that she treated me as such. Years ago, I had the opportunity to spend time with her in her kitchen and it was there that she shared with me a wealth of information. It was not just about cooking that I learned during that time, but more about the pride and love for her family. Grandma would prepare Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner and/or yes, sometimes Supper(as she would call it) every day for the family and some of those deep rooted family values stuck with me as I got older.

One of my biggest joys comes from seeing my friends and family’s face when they eat my dishes. All of my dishes are prepared out of love and hopefully by sharing them with you, you can in return share them with your friends and/or family and pass on a little bit of that love as well.

I value and look forward to your feedback and comments, as I continue to grow and learn more each day.

Much love and many thanks.

Michelle

    What a beautiful story. I love a lot of the recipes but the waffle cheese sticks is really enticing. I am going to have to steal my mom's waffle maker to try this out.
