TRUE FOOD KITCHEN

TRUE FOOD KITCHEN

I popped into True Food Kitchen located in Lenox Mall in Buckhead for an early dinner with Milla of Happily Eating.  This wasn’t my first visit and I was eager to be back. Based on an anti-inflammatory diet, the menu offers a wide selection of vegan, gluten free and vegetarian options, as well as dishes for meat lovers. There’s a selection of fresh pressed juices as well as handcrafted cocktails made with organic spirits and fresh ingredients, which is obvious at the...Read more …
ONE POT PESTO PASTA

ONE POT PESTO PASTA

My son started Pre-K a little over a week ago and it’s been nothing but chaos.  Adjusting to a new sleep schedule, new school and entirely new routine has been a bit tolling on both of us.  As a result I’ve been slacking a bit in the kitchen – yes I know, this food blogger has been a bit off of her game.  Since I’m now up at the crack of dawn – 6 am to be exact, I’ve been...Read more …
BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

BREAD AND BUTTER PUDDING

Recently a follower on Instagram asked for a recipe for bread and butter pudding and that’s when it dawned on me that I hadn’t added this recipe to my blog.   I have 2 bread pudding recipes(bread pudding, pumpkin butter croissant bread pudding) but no bread and butter pudding, which is quite odd seeing how I grew up eating the latter.  Bread and butter pudding is a type of bread pudding that is common in British cuisine; Guyana is a former...Read more …
TRINIDADIAN ALOO PIE

TRINIDADIAN ALOO PIE

My first taste of aloo Pie was from a Trinidadian roti shop on Liberty Ave in Queens.  A Trinidadian friend introduced me to it and I fell in love with it instantly.  What is aloo pie?  Aloo means potato.  Mashed seasoned potato is encased in soft dough that is deep fried to golden perfection.  Back in those days, I would stuff my aloo pie with either goat or shrimp curry.  On my last trip to Trinidad I made sure to...Read more …
SOURSOP ICE CREAM

SOURSOP ICE CREAM

  Soursop has always been one of my favorite fruits.  I’m always asked to describe the taste and to be honest it’s quite difficult to describe.   When ripe the inside is soft and creamy and is slightly sweet and a slightly sour at the same time.  One of my favorite ways to eat fresh soursop is to mix the pulp with condensed milk.  Since living in the States, it’s very difficult to find the fresh fruit; I usually buy the...Read more …
TRAVEL: NEW YORK CITY

TRAVEL: NEW YORK CITY

A couple weeks ago I was in New York City for a few days to hang with friends and family.  I took my 4 year old son to for a summer break and to see his grandmother and aunt.  The 5 days that I spent in NYC was way too short as it seemed to fly by in a flash.  I barely got to catch up with friends while there as I was busy helping my sister with her outdoor...Read more …

GRILLED SNAPPER

GRILLED SNAPPER

  I love fish and try to cook it at least once a week.  I’ve been cooking more whole fish lately and was thrilled that it’s warmed up enough for me to pull out the grill.  On a recent shopping trip to the farmers market I spotted white snapper and thought it would be perfect on the grill.  The fish was marinated with a marinade that I’ve been using for a few months on different types of fish and it...Read more …
