HARD DOUGH BREAD

HARD DOUGH BREAD

  I have 4 loaves of bread in my freezer.  I tested this recipe from one of my cookbooks and the instructions weren’t clear so I had to test it a few times to get it right.  The original recipe was very light which was unlike hard dough bread and more like white bread; I adjusted it and baked a second batch at 4 am.  Yes 4 am – my 7 week old decided he wanted to stay up all...Read more …
CARIBBEAN GREEN SEASONING

CARIBBEAN GREEN SEASONING

It’s the middle of March and its 83 degrees today.   My first thought was to put on a frilly frock with colorful sandals and frolic about the place, instead I find myself in jeans and a tee at the farmers market elbowing my way to freshest of the herbs.    I live about a 5 minute drive from the DeKalb Farmers Market and it’s the best place to find fresh fruits, herbs, vegetables, meat and seafood.    There is also a wide...Read more …
STEWED LENTILS

STEWED LENTILS

I’ve decided to challenge myself by going an entire month without eating meat.  I’m halfway through and I have yet to miss meat.  That’s not to say that I won’t go back to eating meat, because I love meat – it’s just surprising that I haven’t had a single craving or urge to cheat so it’s safe to say so far so good.  I’ve been sharing a few of my meals on Instagram (Jehancancook) and a few of you asked...Read more …
COCONUT SWEET BREAD

COCONUT SWEET BREAD

Coconut Sweet Bread is loaded with goodies such as raisins, candied cherries and coconut. It’s a perfect treat that’s addictive but not too sweet.   It’s a new year – yes I’m one month late, and I’ve decided to make a few changes and shift my focus a bit.  From the inception of this blog, back when it was a little baby that resided over on blogger and I had all but 6 readers (my family), I’ve been creating recipes to...Read more …

HONEY GARLIC MEATBALLS

“This #HalftimeHero creation is brought to you by Farm Rich. All opinions expressed are my own.” I’m that wife/friend – you know the one who “watches” the game with you but never really knows what’s going on.   I’m usually there more for moral support and not really for the love of the game.  Ironically, I love to play sports and have always been really good at just about any sport that I’ve played growing up but I hate watching sports.   ...Read more …

SALTFISH PATTY

SALTFISH PATTY

    I stumbled into a US Virgin Island bakery called Thomas Bakery here in Decatur and had my first experience with a saltfish patty.    I was curious about the food that the Virgin Islands had to offer since I’ve never had anything from there before and decided to try the saltfish patty; it was a safe choice.  I took one bite into the soft bake-like exterior which gave way to a slightly salty, stewed saltfish filling and it was love...Read more …
