JAMAICA IN THE HOUSE!! #BRAISED OXTAILS AND SPINNERS(DUMPLINGS)

 Sunday’s supper was braised oxtails, one of the popular dishes from my childhood. This dish  is still a favorite in many Jamaican kitchens and restaurants. Part of its composition is a center bone which is quite a delight to savor by sucking the mouth-watering gravy. You just can’t help yourself; your fingers will become  utensils…

ONCE AGAIN, OATMEAL/FLAX SEEDS DID IT FOR ME #WAFFLE-STYLE

I was inspired to make this super-delicious and healthy set of waffles by a fellow blogger, Frugal (Frugal Hausfrau). By the way, her blog is fantastic. You should check it out.

We all watch it happens gradually before our eyes. We bring them home and place them on our counters, hoping to indulge in their sweet and potassium goodness whenever we desire.

AN ITALIAN KIND OF NIGHT …..SI! SI! #PENNE PASTA/TURKEY BAKE

I knew I had ingredients for a spectacular dish. However, on this day, I was  a tad indecisive on what to prepare for supper. The previous evening before I ventured for work, I placed some chopped turkey on the bottom shelf of the refrigerator for thawing. Thought I would whip up some curried balls. But…

SUNDAY’S SUPPER WAS A CURRIED AFFAIR #CURRIED CHICKEN

It was an easy decision for supper. You see, already I had some chicken parts (dark/couple pieces of wings) marinated in a ziplock bag. These chicken portions were bone-in and skinless. Whenever I’ve downtime, I try to take advantage of same by prepping my poultry and/or meats in advance. So, it was relatively smooth to…

FIBER!!!!!!!#FIBER FEST ##ZUCCHINI/KALE FRITTERS

I’m a great lover of nature.I can’t help myself. I’m that bird who tries to catch that worm (now, if only I could catch a few ‘worms’, but, I’m still trying). Anyway guys, I guess you could consider this a good ‘worm’ story; sort of a food idea. Well, my community is populated with quite…
