    Jehan,
    First of all I LOVE your website. I’m guyanese and live in Richmond VA so sometimes it’s hard to get some ingredients but I usually stock up when I visit relatives in NY. Happy New Year to you and family! Your son is so adorable, he’s a cutie pie. When you get a chance can you please post a recipe for cassava pone, I’ve made a couple of times in the past but dont have exact measurements of things and haven’t made it in so long so I forgot. I would love to see your spin on it! Thanks and take care!

    Hi Jehan. I am awaiting your return with bated “stomach”. If you come back before Winter ends (I’m in NY), can you post some cold weather soups/stews please? For instance, I love chilli. Is there a Caribbean twist on that?

    Jehan.
    ever since I’ve found your site I’ve been hooked! You are awesome! Your cooking and recipes are great and incredibly reminiscent of home….Thank you so very very much for being here.
    I’ts been a while since I’ve checked in, but I just saw your son’s first birthday and was blown away at his Cookie Monster cake…..AMAZING!!!!!!! I just had to let you know how wonderful that was….I’m sure that he’ll enjoy the memories and all your hard work once he’s older 🙂

    Congrats…and please; continue cooking!

    Best Wishes,
    Samantha V.

    Mo, I’m back! I will try to post a few winter recipes. I do have a recipe for Chili on the blog already but not with a Caribbean twist.

    Samantha thank you for stopping by and I’m glad my food can evoke memories. Isn’t it funny how you can be transported with just one bite? I thoroughly enjoyed planning my son’s birthday and that cake was a bit of work but so worth it.

    Hi, thank you for creating a highly informative website/blog!!! Both my parents are from Guyana (I was born in the US) and I have always wanted to cook like them. Like you said, there are no measurements and that alone has scared me to try and cook Guyanese cuisines. Fortunately, your website/blog is giving me some courage to try some of them. Thank you very much and keep up the awesome work :D.

    Hi, I love the recipes and your website im so excited i found it and am planning to try your recipes this weekend. One of them was the banana oatmeal and I have a question I need to know if banana flour is the same as plaintain flour (cause that is what the Guyanese-Indian at the local Guyanese store told me) …so i want to confirm with u. Thanks-
    Love your website added it to my favourites and showed my Guyanese husband to look forward to some great meals!!!

  11. JehanP

    Hi Karen, thank you for stopping by and for the love. Banana flour is different from plantain flour. I think the brand I used was Grace.

    Good Afternoon Jehan,

    My husband is Guyanese and your website has helped me bring back those flavors from his childhood. Yesterday I made bake and served it with a sauce made with bok choy and spices it was excellent. Can’t wait to try salted fish on my own. I am in need of the bbq sauce recipe often served at West Indian restaurants on their bbq chicken, if you could provide this recipe I would be so grateful. It has a sweet spicy taste, I think it may contain brown sugar, but not sure. Thank you and keep on cooking!
