Pumpkin Pancakes & Breakfast Casserole

Pumpkin Pancakes Pancakes are always a treat regardless of the time of the year; however, on special occasions, we can make them extra special by stuffing them, or topping them with berries and other fruits cooked right in to the pancakes.

Sweet Plantain Nachos

This is the time of the year when we entertain the most. While there are the big-meal gatherings, lots of cocktail parties abound, as well as having people over for drinks and little bites or nibbles.

Braised Pork Belly

If you like bacon, then you like and have eaten pork belly. Pork belly is as it states, the belly part of the pig.

Shrimp Nuggets

One of my favourite Guyanese foods is the white-belly shrimp. Small, soft shell, glistening, pink and so fresh, a thing of beauty and absolutely delicious.

Oven-Roasted Spareribs

Most of the times when we think of spareribs, we think of seasoned meat cooking low and slow over smoldering coals or wood fire in the style of barbecue.

Garlicky Potato Choka

Potato Choka is simple and very tasty. In many ways it can be thought of as spicy mashed potatoes, but it’s not the same thing.

Semolina Parsad

Whenever there is a holiday marking a religious festival, I always try to make something that keeps me connected to home.

Stewed Trotters

You’ve had pig’s feet (trotters) in Pepperpot, Soup and Souse but have you ever had it stewed?

Weeknight Pasta Bowl

A good Bolognese sauce (ragù Bolognese or simply ragù), takes time to make so that the flavours can develop and meld.

Minced Meat Rolls

With school/college/university re-opened, I am back to making foods that can work as a stand-in for a meal as well as breakfast; teatime eats and light night eating.

Passion Fruit Sauce

Although we get a wide variety of fruits throughout the year because of our tropical climate, there are certain times of the year when some fruits plentiful more than others.

Pumpkin Rice

There are times when you can’t be bothered with cooking vegetables and rice separately.

Sautéed Prawns

Fast food for me falls into two categories – traditional, as in foods that you buy from large chains that include things like, chicken and chips, burgers, pizzas and sandwiches.

Egg and Cheese Sandwich

There are several ways in which to put eggs and cheese together to make a sandwich but my favourite way is old fashioned by today’s standards, and harkens back to my childhood.

Tomato Chutney

Two Sundays ago, In Good Taste featured Hummus – a Middle Eastern chickpea spread/dip – topped with Tomato Chutney.

Baba Ganoush

Baba Ganoush shares the same main ingredient as Baigan/Eggplant Choka – smoky roasted eggplant.

Homemade Tahini

I want you to think of today’s recipe as a precursor to the recipes that will be shared over the next two Sundays in this column.

Baked Custard

Umm, baked custard, it is one of the most comforting sweet treats. Easy to whip up with just a few ingredients, custard makes for a great make-ahead dessert.

Cantaloupe Cooler

Melons of all sorts are in season and coming in to season. It is nature’s way of telling us to keep hydrated during the hottest months of the year.

Soft Bun-Rolls

Last Easter I tweaked my Cross Buns recipe that originally had its flour to yeast ratio from my Butterflap recipe.

Shepherd’s Pie

This peasant dish of ground meat and mashed potatoes feeds a crowd, and at its best, it is comfort food.

Soy Sauce Rice Noodles

Today’s recipe is more about the main ingredient – rice noodles – than the other things that contribute to the composition of the dish.

Cheese-Scallion Rolls

These Cheese-scallion Rolls pay homage to Chinese Scallion Pancakes. Chinese Scallion Pancakes are like a flaky paratha roti in which sliced scallions are rolled with the dough and then pan-fried.

Corned Beef Rolls

Like bread? Like corned beef? Don’t sandwich the two; roll them together. These rolls are perfect for breakfast, brunch, tea, afterschool snack, or for an evening nibble with a hot or cold beverage.

Spiced Almonds

Nuts are a great source of protein and other nutrients. Considered heart-healthy, almonds in particular, which are high in monounsaturated fat can help reduce cholesterol levels in the blood which can lower the risk for heart disease and stroke.

Steamed Okra and Corn Salad

After last week’s Tastes Like Home column, I received several emails asking for the recipe for the steamed okra and tomato salad with the soy sauce-lime dressing.

Chicken Liver Pâté

There are times when you feel peckish but do not want a big meal; you want something that is savoury and satisfying.
