Hi and welcome to my blog One Love Cooking or OLC for short. I’m Deanna a proud Jamaican and foodie who emigrated to the U.S. and has been living in Pennsylvania ever since. My cooking journey started in my early teens and I’ll admit that I wasn’t a great cook at first. I vividly remember my first attempt at making rice - I added too much water, it came out soggy, and then in an attempt to salvage it, I ended up burning it - so it was definitely a FAIL. But like Aaliyah said “If at first you don't succeed dust yourself off and try again” and so I did and keep doing.
Over time cooking became more than just something I did because it was essential for my survival. I truly began to enjoy it and started having fun experimenting with different ingredients and flavors. OLC my passion project, my baby will be my take on the dishes I grew up eating along with dishes inspired by my time and experiences while living in America. I hope you enjoy browsing through my site and if you do happen to make any of the dishes I hope they provide you and whomever you make them for with a full and happy belly. Thanks again for stopping by.
