Auntie Felicia’s Cooking Show is What We Need

There are times I come across silver and gold on these internets and tonight is one of those times. I have been introduced to Felicia O’Dell (aka Auntie Fee) and her resourceful cooking. My life has been changed and I am made better for it.

Felicia Odell

Felicia O’Dell (I like that I can call her Sister O’Dell) is basically everyone’s auntie who gives no dambs about your feelings, cusses like a sailor but has a heart of gold. And she can make a gourmet meal with $3.35. She decided to feed 7 people with less than $4 and show us all how she did it.

Let me say right now. If you’re offended by cuss words or are at work or with the kids or easily butthurt, skip these videos. Don’t say I didn’t warn you and I don’t wanna hear how offended you are in the comments either.

So many quotables. TOO MANY! My favorite is “kids and fat people like a lot of cheese.” Chile, I hollered. And her use of parsley to make the dish more fancy. Don’t get it twisted. Auntie Fee is a gahtdamb classy lady.

This is one recipe that anyone could do, doe. Yes, you might end up with the gout, shingles and high blood pressure after you whip this little meal up but its nothing a couple of pills for the rest of your life won’t clear up. Don’t be no punk and getchu some of this.

Also, why do I want to end every blog post with “THIS BITCH IS READY!” now? What a great exclamation of accomplishment? Everyone should end every chore with “THIS BITCH IS READY!” You just finished washing the stove? Use it. You just cleaned up your house for visitors? Yell it out! You just finished cooking a bomb ass meal? This is officially a requirement.

Auntie Fee returned with a recipe on sweet treats. She wanted to make some “little punk ass cinnamon rolls” for the kids.

Fee loves the kids (and sugar and butter and fried things). “You can use any type of cheap ass donuts.” I cannot NOT love her. I just wanna stand in her kitchen and learn some teeth rotting eating habits from her. She’d cuss me out and I’d just cackle.

I also love how she stays snatching the wig of her camera man. When he said her sweet treats were prison food, she hit him with the “Motherfucker. This is not no prison food. I need to get a new camera man cuz you tripping.” DEADDDDD AND SO GONE.

LET HIM KNOW! This is ingenious and resourceful!

Yall better give Sister O’Dell a show. Where is the Cooking Channel? Is the Food Network busy? Who do we have to petition? SNAP HER UP because I’d watch any and all shows with recipes and instructions from Miss Felicia. It’s like Cooking for Bae come to life, but in a crass yet charming way. I’m here for it.

yes gawd gif

I need a show called “This Bitch is Ready!” to happen for her. She is a chef for the peoples.

Aw man. I’ve watched these multiple times and I am STILL hollering.

        Why did that freak y’all out? How do you wash chicken?? (I am seriously curious because she does it like my mom always did, and you’re freaking our about it.)

        • @darthjaeda
          July 31, 2014 at 10:05 am

          She “washed” frozen chicken in the sink, and then proceeded to put it back in the dirty, unwashed chicken bag and (potentially) refroze it. Nawl.

        • Susan
          August 6, 2014 at 4:26 pm

          If she bakes the chicken wings for two hours in 350 degree oven, I seriously doubt that any botulism would be left on the food. Now, cleaning the sink after using it for raw chicken is another matter.

  9. July 30, 2014 at 10:58 pm

    “Fee don’t burn a dayumn thing!” lol I hollered. And she had nerve to say that her first video went viral?

    I rebuke this ghetto gourmet in the name of decorum and good health. She is like the hood version of Paula Deem with that pre-packaged, processed mess.

    We need that guy Troy who wrote that prayer for the dude with the big teeth to tackle this one too.

        • July 31, 2014 at 1:33 pm

          lol!! You all have me in tears over here reversing my rebuke and standing in the gap.

          I hope she does get paid because she is funny as heck, and I’d like to see what she does for the holidays. That must be some kind of feast at Thanksgiving.

        • Phillip

          You tell thows mother fuckers to get a life. Aunti Fee has some skills. That chicken video is locked on…nothing wrong with re freezing chicken after marinating it. An did you see how clean her sink was prior to preparing the chicken in it. Theres no botulism there at all. Keep up the good work Aunti Fee….waiting for your show or cook book to come out…

    • vanessa197676
      July 31, 2014 at 10:23 am

      They did go viral. The videos were just posted 18 hours ago, and already the two posted in this article have anywhere from 100k to 400k views. Last night the views were at 21k.

      Auntie Fee is going to get paid by YouTube.

I just think about my mom and aunts changing clothes just to cook dinner, LOL! I will definitely subscribe to her channel and hope the Food Network pick her up. I would DVR her show. I can’t wait for the baked chicken lesson whenever it’s coming, LOL! Thanks Luvvie, you always bring a smile to my face when I read your blogs.

    Is Auntie Fee related to me? Prolly. I’ve sataround many a kitchen table for those type of kitchen talks.

    I began following her IMMEDIATELY after I saw the $3.35 meal. And she just got her YouTube channel! Me, and Auntie Fee gone be learnin togeva!

    I don’t care what anyone says about Auntie Fee, she is a real budget gourmet. I watched her baked chicken video first and died. But this stir fried noodles and steak had me screaming. Lawd have mercy but she fed those children and fat people ]__ (dead) casket ready. If she ever gets a real show she will have sponsors coming out of the woodwork like roaches ijbh.

      That’s why I like Auntie Fee’s cooking. You can fancy it up if you like. I’ma try those crescent roll somethings next time I need to prepare some quick party finger food but will go easy on the sugar and bake them instead. Good stuff that dish of yours, Tae. Definitely fancy 🙂

    July 31, 2014 at 3:41 pm

    This b*cht is ready! LOL. That needs to be trademarked.

    I already love Auntie Fee like kin and I’ll tune in her show. She’s resourceful and gives a realistic budget. Yeah, she may need some input on some things but she’s already a long way off handling cooking, talking AND the cameraman. But they’ll need to keep that cameraman close because they are funny together! I imagine she’ll have a “lighter” option and say (coz she’s shadeful like that): “For the hoity toitys use less seasoning ‘coz it’s salty as seawater, add frozen veggies you got on clearance or some sad turkey to the ramen ‘coz I know you ain’t about that leftover taco meat. This b*cht is ready!”

  34. Kelly Wilson
    July 31, 2014 at 4:31 pm

    She is the real deal. She is so funny!!! In fact, she reminds me of one of my relatives! I think she is sincere and it trying to show others how to make a meal out of a few dollars. Having said that, I would not eat from her. I can not believe she did not allow that chicken to thaw out. In addition, she rinse the chicken and put it back in the same bag it came out of. She should have put the chicken in a new bag. In addition, she needs to wash down that stove. It is caked in grease.

    OK, on the real tip, I did make Aunt Fe’s baked chicken recipe yesterday, sans salmonella, for dinner. I can confirmed that the paprika did make it a pretty color and that the chicken did indeed, fall of the mutha****** bone.

    As for the ramen noodle dish, you can cut down the sodium content by replacing the “flavor packet” with chicken or beef broth, homemade preferably, so you can season it to taste. I’m not a fan of the ramen – waaayy too much of it in college, but my kids like it so i had to do away with the packet so they wouldn’t have problemns with the high blood presha before they hit 10 years old.

    Side note, whenever I make a dessert now, I just call it “something sweet for the kids”, no matter what it is. Drives my husband nuts. That’s just an added plus.

    Auntie Fe has added to my life in soooo many ways. I’m better for it.

    This was like having the Thug Kitchen tumblr come to life. I love Auntie Fee. I even want to try a vegan version of those egg rolls. I think the only thing that would make her videos better is if she had DMX and Trick Daddy come on as guest chefs. Does anyone remember the food from Trick Daddy’s barbecue when his home was featured on MTV Cribs? Let’s just say that it was probably catered by Aunt Fee…lmao Just skip to 3:23 if you don’t feel like watching the whole video.

    I hope someone gives her a show because I would definitely watch. I laughed for hours off the baked chicken video and something sweet for the kids…LOL
