It doesn’t take much for yours truly to celebrate. There’s no need to wait for once per year. For me, every day is a celebration. So, what did I do? I fetched two of my champagne chutes and went to town. By the way, these two are gifts from a good mate. Seems like we’re always in a celebratory mood. Thanks to her……yeah!!

Had a couple of medium-sized  cucumbers.  But, I know their shelf lives are very low. Can’t afford to let them go to waste. Never felt like having them in a garden salad or pickling them. So, yours truly opted to chop them up and make a refreshing cucumber juice.



  • Cucumbers (2 med)
  • Lemon (1 Large) (lemon would be perfect)
  • Ground Ginger (1 tbsp)
  • Honey (a generous squeeze) (any sweetener is great)
  • Water (1 pint)


  1. Thoroughly rinsed my cucumbers under tap water.
  2. Further did a quick rinse with boiling water to remove any residual dirt or pesticide and cooled with cold water.
  3. Chopped cucumbers in sizable pieces to accommodate blender (standing).
  4. Used my knife to mince ginger.
  5. Added water, juice of lemon and all the other ingredients in blender and pureed same to a smooth finish. (I made sure to further liquefy honey with a little boiling water)

Guys, I served my  cucumber juice in my champagne chutes. I had both chutes (just minutes to chug down). It was refreshing and quite tasty.  I knew for sure that I started my day just right. I’m over the moon knowing that I had incorporated great fibers and other beneficial nutrients to my body. Salud!!

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.
