Coconut Curry Chicken Recipe.

As you make your way across the Caribbean you'll encounter different methods of cooking curry dishes, influenced by one's own preference and family traditions. A prime example is my way of cooking coconut curry chicken.. as I'm about to share. My technique and ingredients will differently differ from other recipes you'll see... even the way I'd see my mom and grandma make their version. Coincidentally I don't recall mom using coconut in curry chicken, unless it was a tough chicken (we say yard fowl), where the use of the coconut acted as a tenderizer.

Classic Geera Pork (Spicy Cumin Pork).

The original version of this recipe, along with a Chicken rendition were shared a few years back, but with increased requests from fans on Instagram I thought I'd share a slightly different method of cooking this spicy dish we adore in Trinidad and Tobago. Geera as we've discussed in previous recipes is simply the word we use when referring to Cumin.. and to be quite honest, I'm NOT a huge fan of this spice. While this version (like the traditional way) is very spicy, you can certainly cut back on the amount of pepper you use so don't be scared off.

The Ultimate Plantain Frittata.

With all the requests I've been getting for more breakfast / brunch type recipes, I thought I'd share a classic Plantain Frittata with you. While not something you'd traditionally see in the Caribbean, I came up with this recipe a few years ago when I had friends visiting for the weekend. The idea behind this frittata was to include 3 things we're passionate about (ingredients) in the Caribbean... Salted Cod, Fresh Herbs and Ripe Plantains. You can be as creative as you want in your version.

Quick And Tasty Corn Bread Recipe.

13 February 2018

While I make a "killa" Corn Bread (as I'm about to share), my fondest memory of corn bread takes me back to when my girls were much younger and we took a trip to Disney World Orlando. We had been going all morning and as it came time to have lunch we decided on fried chicken, which came with a mini corn bread. While there wasn't anything really 'special' about the corn bread itself.. sometimes it's about the scenery, people you're with and overall memory of the event, which makes a meal/dish stand out.

Delicious Dandelions (vegan + gluten free) Recipe.

Delicious Dandelions (vegan + gluten free) Recipe.

18 January 2018

Last Spring (can't believe its been close to a year since I documented this recipe) I came across some stunning looking dandelions at my local supermarket and with my luv for 'greens' and my desire to experiment with 'different' ingredients, a bunch made it's way home with me. Yes, if you're familiar with dandelions you'll know that for the most part it's considered a weed you hate seeing on your lawn or garden. But I recall my first Spring in Canada and seeing people harvest them at the side of a country road so I knew they could be eaten.

Eggplant With Potato (baigan and aloo) And Shrimp Recipe.

Eggplant With Potato (baigan and aloo) And Shrimp Recipe.

14 January 2018

Baigan and Aloo (eggplant cooked with potato) was one of my favorite things to eat as a kid growing up on the islands.. except when mom would put saltfish (salted cod) in it. According to her (my adult self agrees 100%) makes it more 'sweet' (tasty) and though mom never made this dish with shrimp, it's now one of my go-to recipes when I'm homesick. Granted it's not a 'pretty' dish, but I assure it you'll fall in love with it.

Amazing Coconut Macaroni And Cheese.

Amazing Coconut Macaroni And Cheese.

23 December 2017

While I grew up enjoying Macaroni Pie as my choice for a dish with pasta and cheese as a kid on the islands and though mom made a killer mac n cheese (with boiled eggs), I only started making the coconut version of this comforting dish a few years ago. Though your family may have a tasty recipe for making your macaroni and cheese... I assure you that with the addition of coconut milk and herbs, you'll find yourself gravitating to this version once you give it a test-drive.

Simple Oven Roasted Turkey Breast.

Simple Oven Roasted Turkey Breast.

21 December 2017

Since I'm not a huge fan of turkey, the past few years I've been focusing more on just the turkey breast when we do Thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. My daughters are not huge fans of the bird either but it's part of their Canadian culture, so rather than doing an entire bird and having too much leftovers to know what to do with.. we usually make a single turkey breast. After posting pics of this on Instagram, I was flooded with requests from people who are in the same situation.

Quick And Simple Salmon Fried Rice.

Quick And Simple Salmon Fried Rice.

12 December 2017

Here's a quick and tasty recipe putting leftover rice (which you may already have in the fridge) and a can of salmon to work, for what I assure you is an incredible one-pot dish. While the use of the can (or 'tin' as we would normally say in the Caribbean) may seem a little strange if you've never tried it... I quickly learned that it truly is a great addition to what could potentially be a boring fried rice. This is one of the many go-to recipes I employ when lunch-time hits and I have some rice in the fridge.

The Ultimate Curry Corn Recipe.

The Ultimate Curry Corn Recipe.

02 December 2017

As a kid growing up on the islands, I can't remember mom ever making curry corn. And while it's quite popular in Trinidad and Tobago and some of the other islands of the Caribbean today, I only started hearing about it about this dish a few years now. While in Trinidad a few days ago my neighbor gave me a sample of her version to try and while it was very tasty, it wasn't 'my' version. Which I'm about to share with you today. Yes, those of you requesting more vegetarian / vegan recipes will luv this one.
