Turkey Meatballs with Apple, Spinach and Provolone

Turkey Meatballs with Apple, Spinach and Provolone

Having a young child has made me more creative when it comes to cooking.   It’s not that he’s a picky eater, in fact he eats everything.    While I do cook vegetables on a regular basis and give him fruits daily, I still don’t think he eats enough.  Honestly, most of us don’t meet our daily requirements of fruits and vegetables but easily exceed our limits when it comes to fats, sugars and carbs.  While I’m no nutritionist or health nut,...Read more …

So guess who has a new writing gig over at Frugivore Magazine?  *Ding, ding ding* I do and I couldn’t be more excited!  In addition to blogger extraordinaire (as I so fondly refer to myself) I am now a contributing writer.  I think I like the sound of that.   I will be posting recipes that will not be found on this blog but will link it.   Frugivore Magazine is all about healthy eating and living, which is exactly why Guyanese and...Read more …
Shepherd’s Pie

Shepherd’s Pie

It’s no secret that Fall is quickly approaching and I must say I’m a bit excited.   It’s not that I don’t love Summer…I do, but there comes a time when a girl wants to snuggle up in scarves and boots and watch the leaves change colors.   And it makes me all fuzzy and warm on the inside just thinking about it.   Now Winter could wait…to be honest it would be perfect if Spring followed Fall but that’s just wishful thinking.  ...Read more …

BBQ Jerk Chicken

It’s the middle of May and I can’t help thinking of summer.   While its’ been warm in Atlanta since late February, Memorial weekend marks the unofficial start of summer.  I’m filled with thoughts of all things summer; brightly colored bikinis, days spent poolside, dining al fresco and festivals in the park constantly occupy my mind.   I’m ready to jump in head first. As a tropical girl at heart, I crave the hot rays of the sun so I take advantage...Read more …

Caribbean Chicken Soup and Parsley Dumplings

And my two weeks of no meat has finally come to an end and I survived to tell the tale.  Surprisingly I didn’t miss it at all!   Even though I didn’t eat meat, I cooked it a few times for the Mr. because he just couldn’t survive without it.  I was totally surprised at my willpower and lack of interest; I didn’t even sneak a bite.   At the end of the two weeks I celebrated by making a Cinco De Mayo feast, and oh...Read more …
GUYANESE DUCK CURRY

GUYANESE DUCK CURRY

This weekend I went on a curry bender.  I’ve been craving roti and curry for weeks but let me be quite honest, I do not like making roti. I love eating roti especially  when  it’s hot and fresh off the tawa but I hate the process.   Because of this I’ve been putting it off for weeks.   The final straw was last weekend when my mom AND my cousin made roti and curry.   Seething with jealously I decided it was time...Read more …

It happens to all of us at one time or another, and by us I mean bloggers.   You’re have a great recipe or topic but have no idea where to start when writing the post.   It’s not that I don’t love Jerk chicken, but the truth is I’ve been sitting in front of this computer screen all day trying to write.   Is it what I like to call bloggers block?  Do I have this great story waiting to be published...Read more …
Easy peasy Chili

Easy peasy Chili

This is one of my go-to meals in the winter.   I freaking love chili!  It’s super easy to make and oh so good.   I like mine with cornbread, sour cream, corn chips and cheddar cheese. I will put this on everything…put a heaping spoonful of this on your ordinary hot dog and turn it into a chili dog.  Delish!!I like a good bean to meat ratio, I need to see my beans and my meat.   This combination works best for...Read more …
Hiatus

Hiatus

Hey, I’m back…been on a mini hiatus.  At the end of my pregnancy I just didn’t have the energy to  cook muchless blog.   Now I’ve been adjusting to motherhood, which leaves me tired and drained, so my blog has been neglected. I will try to blog more often as I am cooking more often now.  This meal is the perfect speedy week night meal.  I sometimes make this using roasted vegetables such as zucchini, yellow squash and red onions; it...Read more …
Baked Curry Chicken

Baked Curry Chicken

I must admit, I have nothing to write. However, I will make an effort to write something because I hate going to a blog post and it’s just a recipe.  So in attempt at not doing the very thing I hate, I will about a car accident I cause exactly 2 years ago in Antigua.   Trust me, it wasn’t serious. Before you say I should have known better than to try to drive in a country that drives on the...Read more …
