Rich and creamy Punch-de-Creme.

Rich and creamy Punch-de-Creme.

Christmas for me growing up in the Caribbean was not as much about gifts and the shopping madness that seems to take over the spirit of the season in North America. It was more about food, family and fun times. The lovely aroma you’d get Christmas eve all the way past Boxing day as homes […]

Let’s put some juicy watermelon to some good use.

This time of the year every grocery flyer / circular you receive in the mail normally contains amazing deals on seedless watermelons.

What on the beach?

The first time I heard the name of this drink I couldn’t help but think..”what a rude sounding drink”. Seems like we’re still in winter, even though spring was officially announced back in March. So what do I do on a gloomy day that sucks the life out of you? I break out the boxes […]

Non alcoholic citrus punch.

Non alcoholic citrus punch.

A punch with no booze? Yup! This one can be enjoyed by the entire family. But for those wild “fete” nights, be sure to add your favorite rum or whiskey (make sure it’s a cheap whisky though, so you’re not wasting it). You’ll need… * 3 cups apple juice or sweet cider * 2 cups […]
