Okra Fried Rice

I made this last week and it was so good that I am definitely making it as a side dish for one of the holiday meals.

Bold Black Beans

Legumes of all variety are good for us; they are an excellent source of protein, dietary fibre, carbohydrates and micronutrients.

Cassava & Salt Fish Patties

In good taste

Ever since I have realized that I can remove the salt from salt fish without boiling it, I always have a little container of the stuff in the fridge – to cook with vegetables, ground provisions, rice, potatoes or just on its own.

Ham & Eggs

In good taste

Ham and eggs are an age-old combination as are bacon and eggs. We more regularly enjoy them cooked separately and then put together on a plate, or as an omelette or quiche.

Breakfast sweet potatoes

In good taste

Breakfast potatoes along with sunny-side eggs, drizzled with hot pepper sauce is a plate of food that I can easily enjoy at any mealtime.

Lemongrass Iced Tea

In good taste

Many of us are more familiar with the hot version of lemongrass tea but have you ever considered making the tea and having it cold?

Mango Salsa

In good taste

Mangoes are in season. Laden branches bend with the weight of plentiful fruit, ripe for the picking.

Banana-Dulce de leche Shake

In good taste

There are times when dessert is preferred in liquid form. Lighter than ice cream and regular milkshake, this Banana-Dulce de leche Shake comes together quickly and you can adjust the sweetness to suit your taste.

Raisin Scones

In good taste

One of the main reasons I like to make scones/biscuits is because they require minimal pre-prep.

Sweet Potato Fries

I have a special place in my heart for French Fries but give me a plate full of freshly harvested sweet potatoes that have been converted to oven-fries and I would easily find myself torn.
