A couple of years ago when I started my blog, I had the pleasure of writing one of my very first guest posts for Kwanzaa Culinarians, a blog that shares the unique perspective of various food bloggers of African descent and their distinctive views on Kwanzaa and its principles.
Kwanzaa officially begins the day after Christmas, and I am so grateful to have the opportunity to share another recipe today for this blog that truly helped me start on my food blogging journey. This maple rum sweet potato cornbread recipe is the perfect way to celebrate all that Kwanzaa has meant to me since my youth.
In the article I share some perspective regarding the Kwanzaa principle that I am definitely identifying with more and more, Nia (celebrated December 30), which means purpose. Since I began on this blogger path, I have learned so much about what it means to live and step into a purpose, even if it isn’t something that you originally saw yourself doing. However, once you find it, it fits like a worn sweater that has been your favorite for years.
Even in the recipe creation for something as strange as maple rum sweet potato cornbread, I realized just how unique my food perspective is. I see so much of my grandmother’s old fashioned influence tucked inside but I just adore my cooky modern remixes that give my recipes a flair uniquely all my own. I am grateful for the principle of Nia, and what it has really shown me about life, especially this year.
