Vegan In Motion

I create dishes from scratch utilizing spices, herbs, legumes, grains, and fresh produce, and incorporate mock meat protein upon request. Healthy eating has been a way of life for me since I was 18. I have researched articles and recipes throughout the years and have experimented with an array of food products. My training is self-taught, though currently enrolled in the Rouxbe Plant-based Culinary School to hone my skills and become certified as a professional chef. I am enthusiastic about taking my experience to the next level.

Desserts de Corazon

Desserts de Corazón is Spanglish for “desserts from the heart”. Which is simply what I offer and what identifies myself and my business. I focus mainly on modern custom cakes and cupcakes. My cakes and desserts, along with the basics, include a variety of Mexican and Latin inspired flavors that are not widely available at local bakeries. I aim to not only make my desserts beautiful, but delicious as well. Most importantly, always baked de todo corazón (from the heart).

Hi there, Janet here. I am the Master Chef and owner of Akwaaba Eats. I love cooking, and anyone who has tasted any of my dishes has relished every bite and wanted more. In November 2019, the idea came to mind to invite the world to enjoy my delicious gourmet dishes. This concept birthed Akwaaba Eats and we have never looked back. "Akwaaba" in the Ghanaian Akan language means "Welcome". At Akwaaba Eats, we aim to make our patrons feel welcome and relaxed while talking to us, placing an order or enjoying our delicious meals. It is our pleasure to bring authentic Ghanaian cuisine with a touch of grandma’s secret spices to the Delaware public. The sizzling aroma of great Ghanaian dishes on our food truck will draw the masses to enjoy mouthfuls of bursting flavors.

Ken-Do Spice

When Western medicine failed me, I decided to make lifestyle changes that aligned with my spirit. My journey to wellness and my passion for cooking inspired me to create Ken-Do Spice. Mother Earth has provided us with life- changing ingredients for optimal health. Finding the perfect harmony of taste is my gift to you. With all the unpredictable stressors that life brings, great tasting meals and beneficial supplements are no longer one of them. Ken-Do Spice blends were created for cooks at any level that want to create flavorful dishes with healing benefits that can satisfy both the body and soul.
