I'm Andrea, and welcome to Vermilion Lane!


Vermilion Lane is a lifestyle blog inspired by visionary Black women and dedicated to sharing my cooking, creativity, and culture, also known as, seeds from my soul garden.


I'm a recipe developer, poetry lover, old school hip-hop aficionado, and strong believer in the politics of visibility --so I created this space to be fully present, basking in the beauty of simply being me.

I invite you to stay awhile, look around, and if you're feeling it, please subscribe. Hearing from readers like you makes me smile, so I invite you to comment on posts that move you.


If you would like to partner with me for guest posts or brand collaborations, please email me

What's in a name?

The title of this blog, Vermilion Lane, comes from one of my favorite activities, walking through the autumn woods. I love the brilliant hues of orange, olive, chocolate, brass, and of course; vermilion.
