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 …
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 …

SHRIMP AND SAUSAGE JAMBALAYA

As a mom of two, one being a newborn I’m always looking for solutions to make life easier.  Anything that makes helps me to complete any task in record time is a winner in my book and one pot dishes usually does the trick.   I love one pot dishes and have shared a few in the past, like my Guyanese Black Eye Peas Cook Up, Chicken, Shrimp and Chorizo Pelau, One Pot Pesto Pasta and Arroz Con Pollo; some are...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 …

SALTFISH FRIED RICE

Hey!  Welcome to my corner of the web!  Please follow me on Instagram and Facebook!   If you’ve been coming here for a while or following me on Instagram (Jehancancook) then it’s no secret that I love rice!  It’s only natural since I spend a 1/3 of my life living in a rice producing country where rice was a staple.   The typical Guyanese eats rice daily; take my mom for example – if I make macaroni and cheese she immediately asks “where’s the...Read more …
