My Jamaican rum marinara sauce has some long legs. Had a few leftover spoonfuls on hand and decided to ‘rock’ it with a couple of eggs. Grabbed my whisk, tossed in a pinch of salt, cracked black pepper, a sprinkle of cheddar cheese (love to keep that in the freezer), a splash of milk, and of course, my recent concoction, Jamaican rum marinara sauce.
Had cupcakes on my mind; so I decided to download my batter in a muffin tin. Placed in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 15 minutes. The result was soft and flavorful cupcakes. I served my cupcakes on two slices of grilled rye bread which were drizzled with a little olive oil and rubbed with garlic.
With fresh straw and blue berries, my palate was refreshed and so was I. To say I was happy is quite an understatement, me and my palate were on cloud nine. Guys, that’s what beautiful things are made of.
I'm originally from the beautiful island of Jamaica. In Jamaica, we always find a reason to celebrate. And, when there's a celebration, there is music, fun and of course, food, great food.
Presently, I reside in So. Florida.Living here in Florida offers varied cultures, people of different ethnic backgrounds.
I've a great passion for the culinary side of life. Therefore, being in So. Fl., provides me the great accessibility of fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables. Moreover, I've the choice to indulge in a amazing foods from different cuisines.This ability provides great inspiration for me to retreat to my humble kitchenette and replicate these dishes.It warms my heart to be able to break bread with loved ones.
I'm an avid reader and love to get lost between these beautiful words. I find reading to be a social activity because it allows me a peek inside other people's minds which in turn makes me more empathetic towards others. One day in the near future, I hope to publish my very own words in the area of poetry as well as my other love, food.
Yoga and speed walking are just a few of the things that keep me balanced and centered. I love family and friends; and, of course, wholesome foods with a glass of cocktail. Life is what you make of it. And, I try to savor and enjoy the simple and precious moments.
