MR. COFFEE® PROGRAMMABLE COFFEE MAKER, ADVANCED BREW

This post is sponsored by the Mr. Coffee®.   All opinions are mine alone. #Ad #MRCAmbassador   One of the first things that I do every single morning is to drink a cup of coffee.  That’s how I get my day started and ready for early morning carpool ride amongst other things.  I’m still surprised that I’m so into coffee because 6 years ago if I was offered anything coffee flavored I would pass on it – yet here I am,...Read more …
KALE AND BUTTER BEAN STEW

KALE AND BUTTER BEAN STEW

There has been a battle in my home for the past couple of months.   Between my husband wanting to eat more vegan meals and me trying to lose the baby weight (eye roll) and having a young son who wants nothing to do with vegetables, meal time has been quite challenging.   Creating meals to cater to all of our tastes has been quite a task and this Kale and Butter Bean Stew satisfied 2 out of 3 of our appetites....Read more …
SLOW COOKER JAMAICAN STEW PEAS

SLOW COOKER JAMAICAN STEW PEAS

Jamaican Stew Peas is a favorite in my home, it’s one of the few meals that we all eat and enjoy including the picky 6 year old.  In the past I’ve made stew peas the traditional way and also sped up the process by using a pressure cooker but recently I made it in the slow cooker and it was amazing.   There are a few changes made to the original stew peas recipe in order for it to work in...Read more …
ROAST SNAPPER STUFFED WITH CALLALOO

ROAST SNAPPER STUFFED WITH CALLALOO

The past couple of months have been super busy and quite stressful.  Instead of spending the summer doing – well summer things, I spent the summer building and selling homes.   It was a complete world wind and completely unplanned.  On a whim we decided to put out townhome in Decatur on the Market and search for a new home in the suburbs.  When we bought the Decatur Townhome, we had no children and 1 dog – fast forward to 10...Read more …
STICKY TERIYAKI WINGS

STICKY TERIYAKI WINGS

Life has been fairly hectic thanks to a 8 month old and a 5 year old.  School is in session so it means homework, carpool lanes and everything in between.  One kid is off to school so for a few hours it’s just me and the baby – the rolling, bouncing, putting everything in mouth and super clingy baby.  I find myself looking for solutions to complete every task in less than regular time and that includes the time that...Read more …
VEGAN CORNMEAL PORRIDGE

VEGAN CORNMEAL PORRIDGE

Cornmeal porridge is a fairly common breakfast food in the Guyana and the Caribbean.  It makes a great breakfast because it’s filling and will keep you going until your next meal.  Usually it is made with milk and sometimes condensed milk but my husband has been requesting vegan meals lately so I decided to make a vegan version for him.  He’s used to having it with lots of sweetened condensed milk which makes it super rich and oh so good...Read more …
DRY BEEF STEW WITH MEZZETTA PEPPERONCINI

DRY BEEF STEW WITH MEZZETTA PEPPERONCINI

  I’m the queen of reinvention when it comes to meals; sometimes it’s with purpose and sometimes it’s completely accidental.   Beef Stew is a classic dish that goes back way before my time and every now and then I like to switch things up a bit.  I started adding new ingredients and making slight variations and then I simply made a dry beef stew.  It’s dry because there is little to no sauce; I typically cook it down until the...Read more …
GREEN TEA LEMONADE + GROCERY DELIVERY

GREEN TEA LEMONADE + GROCERY DELIVERY

Life has been a bit laid back as of lately and we’ve taken it easy this summer.  Usually I’m out and about but I’ve spent most days at home with the kiddos either hiding from the rain or blistering sun.  Maybe it’s the fact that now I have to haul not one but two children with me so I’m less inclined to actually leave the house or maybe it’s the act of getting all 3 of us ready is overwhelming;...Read more …
SALMON STUFFED WITH SPINACH

SALMON STUFFED WITH SPINACH

I live for easy meals and as of lately cooking complicated meals are out of the question.  Its summer time and my 5 year old is off from school and I opted not to put him in summer camp this year so I’ve been quite occupied with him, my 6 month old and other matters so spending a lot of time cooking is just not realistic.  Fish is one of the quickest and easiest proteins to prepare and I try...Read more …
