Dangerous Black Woman: SaKarra Fite

sakarra

I, SaKarra Fite, am a Dangerous Black Woman because I will never allow my circumstances to define me.


I grew up in East Orange, New Jersey. Most of my life was spent in poverty. Although I was always exceptionally bright I opted to get a job as opposed to going to college. However, God had a better plan for me. Without having to fill out one application I was admitted, by a recruiter to attend Fairleigh Dickinson University, and awarded various scholarships and grants.
 
I maintained a successful college career with jobs, three internships, and positions on a variety of executive boards. Some of which included being President of the Association of Black Collegians and Press and Publicity Chair of FDU’s charter chapter of the National Association of the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). I became the first of my mother’s family to graduate. I graduated on time, Cum…

Fried Eggplant Recipe #meatlessmeal

ep6

I was determined to make a better eggplant parm that I could enjoy as much as everyone else did, and one that was quicker and easier.

Instead of doing it like a baked dish with long slices, I made small eggplant parm appetizers! Here is the recipe:

Fried Eggplant Parm Bites

Ingredients:

Eggplant

Vegetable Oil

Tomato Sauce

Seasonings of your choice (I used garlic, salt, and pepper)

2 Eggs

Bread Crumbs

Mozzarella cheese

Directions:

ep1

1. Wash and dry your eggplant (before ever making EP I was so intimidated by its leathery exterior, dont be!)

ep2

2. Remove the skin. (I kept the skin on my last eggplant dish and found it hard to eat.)

ep3

3. Slice your eggplant.

*Now is a good time to put a little oil in a shallow pan so that it can be hot and ready to fry!*

4. Season eggplant w/ salt, pepper and garlic. (I have learned that EP by itself has NO taste, so please season!)

5. Dip eggplant in egg.ep4

6. Dip eggplant in bread crumbs. (if you prefer to bread your eggplant before seasoning feel free to do so.)

ep5

7. Throw eggplant slices in the pan to fry.

*This probably goes without saying but if the oil does not sizzle when placing the food in the pan, it is not hot enough and the food will be soggy with oil. Medium heat will suffice throughout!

After you have fried up all your eggplant!

1. Put a layer of sauce  at the bottom of a baking pan

2. Lay fried eggplant on top (Do not stack eggplant let them lay flat)

3. Put a thin layer of sauce on top of the eggplant

(between my eggplant and second layer of sauce I added a homemade cheese sauce I made; flour, butter, milk,  Cayenne pepper, salt, mozzarella cheese mixed together over low heat).

4. Sprinkle cheese on top.

Pop that in the oven just long enough for the sauce to heat and cheese to melt!

Happy Eating

THE BURDEN OF MODESTY

Why I blog, what I blog!

I could very well commit to blogging about food and recipes,shocking videos, clothes, or anything that will get a lot of views, instantly. However I have found in the short time I have been blogging that expressing my thoughts, and conviluted opinons with those who are dedicated readers, or those who just stumble upon my writing; is very theraputic.

I am just recently coming to terms with the fact that I have many talents. As people we are taught to humble ourselves and be modest, but modesty can be a crippling burden if it prevents you from showing off your greatness with others. Before deciding to share with the internet, I had to prepare myself to be admired.(which sounds crazy, but you will be surprised how shocking admiration can be). God spoke to me, and I am normally not one to say that, but i’m telling you his message was clear and he said that you have to SHARE YOURSELF.

Lately I have been humming the tune “everybody’s got their something”, and I hope those are actually the lyrics because if so it is SO TRUE that everyone has something they can offer.

Yesterday a few people said how much they NEEDED to read my fearless posting, because it spoke to their situation, and I am not even sure how to express how much I NEEDED to hear them say that.

My point here is not that we should all start blogging, but we should all begin to give a little of ourselves to the world, because the return can be so great. If you are a singer..then SING (and I can hear some people in my head telling me I should be singing but i PROMISE I am working through that stage fright haha) , if you are a writer than by all means grab a pen.. EVERYBODY HAS GOT THEIR SOMETHING. Sometimes we need to be boastful and arrogant about our skills.

Screw MODESTY and DO THE MOST!!!

Thank you so much for reading

#Motivated Monday .@IyanlaVanzant

motivated mondayHappy Monday!

I would like to share with you all a brief story (paraphrased) I heard Ms. Iyanla Vanzant tell:

She spoke of how her and her grandson went to get an eye exam. The doctor asked Ms. Vanzant where her glasses were. Ms. Vanzant said ,” I have perfect vision; I am only getting the exam because it was a two for one deal and my grandson wears glasses”. The doctor proceeded to tell her that she may not have known she needed glasses because “your eyes will adjust to the level of deficiency in their focus”.

What a powerful metaphor we can all apply to our lives. How many of us have adjusted our goals to the deficiency of our current focus? Only aspiring to be what WE THINK is possible because we have trained ourselves to not see that ANYTHING is within our grasps.

I felt a real connection with this message because I have sat at the front of EVERY class all through grade school because I could not see the board in any other seat in the classroom. It wasn’t until I got to college that I purchased glasses, and talk about CLARITY! How many years will we as women, or we as people, or we as parents or whatever you define yourself by; allow yourself to live without real clarity. To have the opportunity to sit in any seat you want but see your vision board clearer than you would sitting in the front; out of the action.

I hope this resonates with a few of you. Never accept all you see to be all there is to be seen.

Happy Monday
