  4. I wanted to say I love your recipes, but what type of camera did you use to shoot your video. I love the clarity of it.

  5. I love Divas Can Cook! My best Friend showed me this website and ever since I have loved it. I made the cookie dough dip and the monster cookies and hopefully many many more! Thx so much for making an effort to show people how to cook and make things. Keep the good work up!

  6. Hi, I’m Kim and I’m going to try your Red Velvet cake. My question is… I’m making a 12 x 18 sheet cake, do I just double the recipe? My email is kimberlycook1967@yahoo.com. Thank you.

  7. Hi – how many does the Black Bean Corn Salad Serve as a side dish/approx. cups/ounces, etc….I am having a party on the 4th with 14 in attendance. I always want more than less…I have no problem with leftovers – would prefer it.




  10. Hi Monique! I used your recipe for the whipping cream pound cake and what a hit it has been for me!!! I have made 4 cakes in 2 weeks that how popular it is!! It is everything you said it would be. Thank you for the simple delicious and super moist recipe!!!

  11. Patricia Phillips

    Love your cooking videos, think you are great. Would like to know where do you get your big red plastic bowls you use in the videos.

  12. Charlotte R Ford

    I just love your fruit tray. How much would you charge for one like that?

  13. I love your channel on Roku! I found your website and can’t wait to try some of your recipes!!!

  14. Hi Monique,
    I have all your cookbooks and I love cooking more now. I am a little disappointed. There’s no recipe for a PEACH COBBLER Monique! Please include a recipe on your website. My family keeps asking for it but I don’t know how to make it. My coworker from North Carolina made this peach cobbler once and it was sooooo delicious. The crst was flaky and thick (which was a good surprise) and the filling was a nice consistency, not that running stuff.

    Please Monique, this is my second request. Please include a peach cobbler recipe.

  15. Hi Monique!, I just wanted to stop by and tell you how amazing you and your ingredients are!!
    I have tried a lot of your dishes from desserts to the main course and now I’m off to the drink section. I hope you continue to do what are doing because its a lot of us that appreciate the way you cook.
    ~God Bless

  16. I wanted to know if you have white cake recipe?

  17. Hi Monique! I have been following your site for about six months now and just want to say Thank YOU. I’m a single mom and it’s tough to cook sometimes. I came across your site one day looking up baked mac-n-cheese and have been following since. I love your detailed instructions and videos and my daughter loves your meals! I have enjoyed cooking with my daughter and not spending so much on “going out to eat” Thank you again! From a loyal follower!

  18. Thanks so much for your Lemonade recipe. I have tried a few (and lot more complicated) variations but yours is by far the best. My family just love it and I finally have a homemade lemonade recipe I can stick in my “best of” recipe journal. Love from Australia oxo

  20. Hi :)

    Just wondering if you have ever made, or have a recipe for whole wheat pizza?

    I’ve been looking online for a good one, but haven’t found one I like. I’ve started watching my carbs and simple sugar intake. I would love if you shared a recipe for a whole wheat pizza.


    Thank you.

  21. Made the Lemon, Garlic and Rosemary Chicken dish for dinner this evening. My family LOVED IT. I will make it again…Thank You for sharing!

  22. The lemon, garlic and rosemary chicken recipe looks easy and yummy. Plan on trying this today.

  23. In red velvet cake recipe what is replacement to buttermilk if it s not available?

  24. Hello,

    Can you please do a video making some smothered chicken. Thanks.

  25. I would love to see you do a simple tiramisu recipe. Thanks.

  26. Hi Monique, I want to share a recipe with you and if you try it and decide that you like it, you are more than welcome to use it on your site. It’s a recipe for home made creamed corn and not that icky stuff that’s in a can. Here is what you need (for a large amount)

    - 4 pounds frozen sweet corn
    - 2 blocks of cream cheese cut into cubes
    - 1 stick of salted butter
    - 3/4 cup heavy whipping cream
    - 4 TBLSP sugar
    - 1/2 teaspoon salt
    - 1 teaspoon black pepper

    Just put it all in a crock pot and cook on medium to low heat for 4 hours, Stir occasionally. It is delicious and certainly not anything like the canned stuff. :-)

  27. I recently found your channel on Roku…..LOVE IT! My husband and I sit and watch it together. I’m excited about trying your recipes. Keep them coming! Oh, and thanks for being so entertaining lol.

  28. Is this an American blog? Cause on one of the recipes it says 325 degrees.. is that F? Or Celsius? :)

  29. I just wanted to thank you for the Homemade Cheese Crackers recipe. My 11 year old son found it online and just had to try it. We had to substitute the all purpose flour with his gluten free flour. It turned out great! Thank you for the very simple recipe and for making your website kid friendly. I plan to share the Cheese Crackers recipe and your website with relatives and friends.

    Thank you for the quick and simple recipe.

  30. I just wanted to say, before I started getting your recipes on youtube my cooking skills left A LOT to be desired. I am a mommy of 2 boys, soon to be 3 and they, along with my husband suffered many a night with my awful dinners. Since I’ve started youtube’ing my dinners, my family is much happier when dinner time comes around…shoot so am I! Thanks a bunch!

  31. Hey Monique , I was looking up for lemonade and saw yours Fresh peach lemonade. I have a sister who is five month pregnant and I’m planning her baby shower. Do you think this will take to much time if i made this peach lemonade for her baby shower? I have a big family too. Also do you know how many peach and lemonade and other ingredients i need to double? Thanks!

  32. I’ve tried and tried to get your dinner roll recioe with the sweet honey butter. I find the recipe title and click on it but it comes up with a bunch of other recipe titles and no actual recipe for the rolls. All I need to know is the ingredient amounts, I’ve watched the video on making them. Can you tell me the recipe amounts please. I would love to make thrse for my grandchildren. And yea, you can cook~~A diva to me is someone who is beautiful and knowledgable. You are both and I think that’s great. I’m sure your family is so happy with all your wonderful cooking~~can’t wait to try these dinner rolls on my fami!! Thanks most deeply from a cooking grandma (I feed my kids and their kids almost daily).

  33. hi monique,

    i just want you to know how awsome you are. i have a pastry arts degree from the CIA and i still always use your site for inspiration and easy, fun, yummy recipies. thank you.


  34. I emailed you before about a divas can cook #3 download. I had no problem with the #2 download but had a problem with the #3 download. I would like the $6.99 that was taken from my account returned. I do like the divas can cook cookbook but not the problem that I had trying to download it. I hope to hear from you on what I need to do. Thanks

  35. Hi Monique. .Thank you so much for all of the recipes you have posted and continue to post. Can you please tell me if the cabbage recipe is in the cookbook? I would like to purchase the download especially if that is in it. Also I’m wondering if you have any recipes for cornbread bake? Thank you so much I absolutely love your site!!!!!

  36. Hey Monique girl I love your site. I’ve made alot of your recipes. I was wondering if you can please do a video for sweet potato cupcakes. I’ve been trying to find a good recipe for them. Can you help a sista out.

    Thanks in advance ♡♡♡

  37. Hey Monique!!! I just want to tell you that you are the best!!!! I really enjoy your site, and baby let me tell you…… those honey butter dinner rolls though!!!!!! They gave me LIFE ON THANKSGIVING DAY!!!!! THEY WERE EVERYTHING!!!!

  38. Hello,
    I tried pulling up your easy Mexican chicken salad wrap and was unable to view the recipe. I’ve been able to view that recipe in the past so I’m not sure if it my error or a concern with the website. I enjoy your recipes and have previously purchased your cookbooks. Please let me know if there is a problem. Btw, I’m able to view all your other recipes.

  39. Hey Monique just wanted to stop by and leave a positive comment on your website. This year was my very FIRST year cooking an entire Thanksgiving meal myself. I made dishes that I’ve never made before such as Potato Salad, Ham, Yams, and dressing. I made a couple of other dishes, but I new how to prepare those myself. I got majority of the recipes from your site and I must say everything turned out GREAT! Everyone loved the food and I was shocked that everything tasted so good myself. Thanks for providing five star recipes that are accessible to people for such as myself that need the assistance.

  40. Hello Monique

    I have a quick question, you have a recipe named “Homemade Baked Macaroni and Cheese ~ Easy, Creamy and Crowd-Pleasing~”. I remember using this recipe about two years ago and it had a unique cheese called applewood smoked cheese and a couple of other delicious flavors. However I am trying to access it now to use it for Thanksgiving and the site will not allow me to access it, the page just keeps going blank. I see that you also have the Southern macaroni and cheese but I prefer the one I tried last time, I wanted to know if you still happen to have this recipe available?

    It would be greatly appreciate.

    Thank you


  41. I am recently a single parent of 3 teens, and this is my first Thanksgiving that I am attempting to do alone. As a man and father, cooking is really not my strong point. This site is going to be my “guide” to success this year. Everything looks great and hopefully mine will too :) Thank you!

  42. Hey monique
    I just really wanna thank you. Raised in atlanta I !love! Southern food. Right now I’m pregnant, and well not really off to a good start with morning sickness being on progesterone pills (not that I needed to give u tmi lol).. but Watching your videos uplift me. It gives me motivation and encouragement to get back in the kitchen and cook for my family like I used to. So from the bottom of this asian heart, thank you. ♥

  43. Hi Monique,

    I tried printing your Country Fried Chicken recipe…but there is something wrong…it don’t print the recipe out in full. “Just the picture” …please contact me back when it is fixed. Thanks!

  44. i want to make your southern collard greens w/ smoked turkey legs and I will be making enough for 20 or more guess is there a way you could tell me how much of what ingredients I would need to us to make your collard green……thank you Tiffany, from Georgia…..

  45. Dear Monique,

    I just want to say: THANK YOU for the best “everything-healer” in the WORLD! (Im talking about the caramel apple spice. )

  46. OMG! I stumbled on your recipes and videos this morning, and spent now two hours watching videos!!! Love love love these recipes! But I can’t figure out how to get your cook books!

  47. hello my husband bought me the cookbooks about 2 months ago and I was just wondering why I haven’t received them yet, what all do I need to do to receive my books… thank you for your time

    • i think you might have been scammed because I’ve been getting calls apparently from people who also bought this “cookbook” I’m afraid this is a fraudulent site

  48. I have a baby shower coming up can you help me out please

  49. hello, I placed an order for the three books & when I got to the end of the section it booted me out before I could get my conformation number. Can you please tell me what I need to do. thanks

  50. Hi Monique,

    I was wondering, can I brine a chicken using the brine you use for your turkey? I live in London and am doing a Thanksgiving dinner for an American friend of mine with some others to cheer him up as he will not be with his family. Apart from Turkey’s being so expensive here, no one (including said friend) likes it…. So I’m making a pork belly roast, lamb shoulder and a chicken – just so there is a bird of sorts on the table.

    Please advise.


    PS: I love your site! I made your banana bread recently…. didn’t last very long :)

  51. Thank you for posting the cake pop tutorial! You’re wonderful. I made cake pops twice and gave up. I am a cake decorator and a party planner. I hate telling people, “sorry I don’t make cake pops”. I am going to follow what you said about not using so much frosting. I definitely was using too much. Thanks again for being so helpful!

  52. I paid for my downloads and I still haven’t received them yet!! What do I need to do? Please email me back at the above address please because Im ready to start cooking!!!

  53. I’ve looked all over town for green onion flakes, but haven’t been able to find any. Where would you suggest I look? Would you recommend fresh green onion as a substitute?

  54. Will you please do a regular spaghetti. recepie/video? My mom wants me to cook some for her birthday. Thanks!

  55. Monique ~ I just came across your blog tonight and LOVE it. I’ve been sitting at my computer for hours reading your recipes and watching the videos. It’s now 1:35 a.m. and my eyes can’t take any more…but I don’t want to stop. :-)

    I’m having family over in a couple of weeks to celebrate three (3) birthdays. It’s too much for me to do all the cooking, so I’m having some food brought in. However, I’m definitely going to be preparing a few recipes I saw under the “appetizer” section…as well as the “dessert” section.

    I signed up to receive your newsletter. I’m really looking forward to trying out some “main dishes” soon.

    Thank you for sharing your family recipes with us out here in cyberspace. God Bless you and your family.

  56. I just want to say that I LOVE your cooking, recipes, and personality. You make cooking so fun and easy. I just got married on July 13, 2013 and to be honest I really didn’t know how to cook. My husband says it ok but i know it really not. I can cook like basic things but not like full meals. My mom tried to teach me but I ran from the kitchen to go out and play because I wasn’t accepted in my family since I was the only light skinned girl at that time. So I’m very thankful for you and your books. Im going to buy all three and whatever else I can support you in. God Bless!!!

  57. Good afternoon,

    I was wondering if I can use smoked applewood cheddar cheese in Mac and cheese? Also I absolutely LOVE your blog. Thank God for you.


  58. How do I make the cupcakes from your red velvet cake? Do you have a German chocolate cake recipe? By the way, luv your recipes, thanks for sharing.

  59. Girl I got to tell you, your cake pop recipe is sooooooo easy and soooooooo good, it shouldnt be allowed online!!! LOL…. My house is now full of cake pops and I dont even know what to do with them! This was my first time making them and I was shocked at how easy it was. I cant wait til I actually have a reason to make them again! Thank You so much for posting your recipes and videos. The videos really help by the way.. I cant wait to try more of your recipes!!! Keep up the amazing work!!

  60. Hello. I love your Youtube channel and blog : – )

    I’m a college student living on my own, so I’m not use to cooking. I know, shame, shame, shame :-( lol

    But I would like to know your recipe for STEW CHICKEN, not Jamaican brown stew chicken, just regular stew chicken. I would also like to know how you prevent your rice from becoming gummy? Ewww

    Thank you for your time, your an inspiration.

  61. Hey Diva!
    Peace and blessings to you and the family. I enjoy paging through your delicious recipes. I wanted to make a coconut cream pie and just KNEW that you would have a recipe on here. I’ve searched and I cannot find one at all. Have you tried one?

  62. Hi Monique! I was wondering since the holidays are right around the corner, would you happen to have an orange duck or crown roast recipe up your sleeve? My family wants something different this year besides turkey or ham. Hope you can help me out!

    Joanna : )

  63. Do you have a recipe for easy stuffed cabbage??? I would love for you to post one. Thanks! Love your recipes.

  64. Hi Monique,
    I am a young mother who has been inspired by you to get in the kitchen in cook. I just want to know what cooking supplies should I start of buying?

  65. I just love your site. I find your recipes easy to make and very, very good!!!! Taste very close to my mom’s recipes. My daughter is always asking me how I make this or that. I just refer her and many other young ladies to your site. Your videos are very helpful!!!! Thank you so much for sharing. May God bless you and your beautiful family. Another plus;))) Please keep your recipes coming!!!
