Jerk

Jerk

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 …
Cabin Fever

Cabin Fever

  For the past 2 days I’ve been experiencing cabin fever. I’ve been at home since Sunday and will probably stay in for a few more days because Atlanta is currently under ice.   On Sunday there was a snow storm–and I use the word storm loosely–that dumped 5 whole inches of snow on the ground. That’s a lot of snow to people native to the South, but for us Northerners this is nothing.   The problem hasn’t been the amount of...Read more …
A treat after all the hard work

A treat after all the hard work

This past week has been interesting, I adopted a new dog and started a boot camp workout.  It has been very tiring.  As many of you dog owners know, its a lot of work house breaking a puppy.  Between waking up at 5 am to drive to the park to be tortured and making multiple walks so that our new puppy can have potty breaks, I am  exhausted! Lately I’ve been slacking off when it comes to exercise.  I’ve swam,...Read more …
Long overdue

Long overdue

I have a major complaint. The trees have began  its annual journey, their leaves have changed color and are beginning falling.  The stores are filled with scarves and sweaters and holiday decorations.  The nights are filled with frost and a cold breeze comes through my open window each night. So why in the world is it 80 degrees during the day? My brain is scattered and utterly confused; its fall dammit!  Its time to put away the short shorts and...Read more …

A traditional Guyanese Cook-up Rice.

As promised I’m slowly going through all of my recipe requests and this was on the top of my list.  Cook-up Rice is a traditional Guyanese recipe  that’s very versatile.  It is a one pot dish that can be made with any type of peas, such as pigeon peas or chickpeas and some type of meat.  If you’re not a lover of peas or beans you can opt not to use peas and use callaloo or spinach in place of...Read more …
