ABOUT - Savory Thoughts


Hi and welcome! I’m Mirlene, and this little website is my internet home. I write, cook, and take pictures of all the foods you will see on this site. I am also an avid coffee lover.

I am blessed to have a career which allows me to care for my family. But my passion is being in my home in the kitchen, in my “own world” and in my own thoughts.


In the cooking sector, I’ve always been a food fanatic. Thought I was always a picky eater, not sure how the two works, but it does! My appetite to try almost anything has always been restricted until recently. I love to cook Haitian American dishes. Pretty much, adding a little flare from both cuisines to create one or more complete, scrumptious, flavorful, delicious meal. I adore bold spices of all kinds – this is to include in meat, noodles, rice, you name it – I adore the bold flavors of it all.

On a more personal level, I am driven by inspirational thoughts, quotes, and scriptures. You can’t have a good day if you don’t start with good attitude. I am continuously trying to learn how to be a better version of myself day by day. I frequently try to find ways to be better at things that truly matter (God, Jesus, myself, my husband, my kids, and my family/friends).


Savory Thoughts is a blog that will satisfy your appetite for food, with a dose of inspirational thoughts to fuel your inner abilities.
