Pear & Bread Bruschetta Style

Are you enjoying the bounty of in-season avocado? I hope so. You can make shakes, salads, dressings and more with this buttery, creamy fruit that has an inherent note of sweetness.

Cassava… Biscuits?

Hi Everyone, There comes a time when you wonder if your friends enablers are genuinely motivated by a desire to see you create and succeed, or whether it is to appease their hunger.

Fried Broccoli

The term ‘fried’ in this recipe refers to the style of cooking we Guyanese employ when we talk about cooking vegetables – fried pumpkin, fried callaloo etc.

Fruity drinks

Hi Everyone, If you are of a certain age you will recall the August holidays being rife with outdoor activities – climbing trees, picking fruits and eating them to our heart’s content, playing gam (marbles), hop scotch, and running our own Olympic-style races.

Sweet Potato Dumplings

The market here (in Barbados) is rife with orange-flesh sweet potatoes. They are a joy to bake with simply because they make everything look stunning with a rich golden-orange hue.

Chicken Salad

Even though we live in a tropical environment all year round, we do feel the effects of the changing weather systems throughout the year.

Grilling Fruits

Everyone knows that pineapple and stone fruits can be grilled but there are other fruits that can be grilled too such as citrus fruits like oranges.

Fruit soup

If you’re looking for an easy dessert that uses mostly fruit, then you’ve hit the jackpot when you make a fruit soup.
