Hi and Welcome!
I’m LaKita. I cook, I write, and I take pictures of delicious food.
I live in sunny Northwest Florida with my teenage son Michael, and an extremely curious mini poodle, named Shakespeare.
In the cooking department I enjoy recipes that are simple in technique, require no fancy ingredients, and take the minimum amount of time to prepare. I am not a professional chef and I have never attended culinary school, but I do know how to separate an egg yolk from an egg white, make a delicious pound cake from scratch, and prepare a weeknight meal for my family in under 30 minutes.
Simply LaKita Blog
Simply LaKita was born on February 1, 2013, out of my desire to explore new recipes, experiment with flavors, and document my experiences, successes and failures, to you. Here you will find meals that are fast, simple, and delicious that anyone can make, from novice cooks to experienced foodies. You will not find any fussy or complicated recipes here, but you will find some wonderful recipes that are sure to impress your family and friends without spending all day in the kitchen.
I am also a vegan mom raising a non-vegan son and so you will find both types of recipes here on Simply LaKita. At home my meals are primarily prepared using a vegan base with the meat prepared separately and added in later.
I publish 2 posts a week on Simply LaKita.
I share new recipes on Mondays and Fridays.
I am sincerely happy that you are here…Thanks for following along!
