Hi and WELCOME! I am Ajee and Nannee (grandma) to three, mom of three, mother-in-law of two and wife of an Iowa boy (Ajah). Together, we make up the Ajee’s House team.
I grew up eating and cooking the flavorful Guyanese and Caribbean recipes I learned from my mother when I was eight. I have taught my kids to cook Guyanese/Caribbean and now am doing this with my grandchildren from my home on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.
I want to get you creating tasty traditional Guyanese and Caribbean, fusion and Chesapeake dishes that reflect our family and the influences of the places we have lived. From the Caribbean to the Chesapeake Bay, these recipes have color, flavor and spice. Our family is all about hand crafted food and beverage. Food so good that as my mother-in-law would say, “Hurry up and eat your lunch so you can be hungry for dinner!”
I’m about making healthy, delicious food in the shortest time possible for easy entertaining and so I have more time for family, friends, creating and making memories.
My hope is to inspire you to build strong family bonds by preserving your cultural inheritance through food, travel, making things and making memories.
