MY PALATE DID A LEAP! #SCRAMBLED EGGS AND AVOCADO

Breakfast was quite a satisfying one for yours truly. I wasn’t in the mood for hot or cold cereal in a bowl. Been sometime since my palate had been caressed by the creamy taste of some scrambled eggs. I didn’t need milk or cream or any other liquid. I allowed my nutritious eggs to do…

ONE POT WONDER TO FEED EXTRA MOUTHS #LINGUINE AND SHRIMP PLUS

The past week-end was quite a treat. I had company. Got a few unexpected in numbers. What was I going do? When you have waiting palates to feed and satisfy, you find a way to make what you have stretch. Moreover, I was quite a bit weary from the ‘grave yard’ shift I pulled the…

ROASTED CHICKEN/CARROTS WITH A CREAMY CARROT SAUCE

I guess my palate was in search of something out of the culinary box. I went with the flow and it led me down the beta carotene path; a road that’s earthy and wholesome. I love carrots. I love them in salad, soups, stews, roasted and of course blended and made in a drink. It…

IF IT’S THE WEEK-END, I’VE TO JERK ##JERK CHICKEN WINGS

Old habits are hard to break. I’ve been indulging in this rustic, bold, aromatic and spicy sauce from childhood days. In our household especially on the week-ends, at some point there was a dish that consisted of jerk sauce. It was either pork or chicken and sometimes fish. This week-end is no different. Some childhood…

FRUIT SALAD PLATE AND A MELON SHOT TO START MY DAY

Over the week-end, I took time out to celebrate the milestones in two of my friends’ lives. And with any celebration, we can’t help it, we often go a tad overboard. And, that’s what occurred over the week-end. I indulged in some amazing dishes that were appealing to my palate and I. Also, I had…

A STORMY DAY DELIGHT #VEGGIE STIR-FRY/GRILLED CHICKEN

In my neck of the woods (So. Florida, U.S.A.), it seems like Mother Nature is doing a ‘make-up’ job. You see, normally, the  summer thunderstorms are a commonplace during the June month. However, this year was not the case. Based on the forecasters’ reports and from the look of the parched lawns, there’s a deficit…

QUENCH THAT SUMMER THIRST #SKEWERED WATERMELON

They are plenty on the market and are quite inexpensive. Nothing is wrong in playing with your food. Make it convenient and easy to pick up by cutting…

MY MANGO STOOD OUT ##MANGO COCKTAIL

I love the taste of mango in a refreshing summer cocktail. It’s bold and upfront and center within a drink. And, it doesn’t take a huge amount to flavor a particular drink. A few pieces go a long way. The smooth and sweet characteristics make it perfect for an exotic drink on a sizzling day….

FRESH MILK FROM NATURE ##FRESH COCONUT MILK

We all have (well, many of us) super busy lives. And, as a result, when it comes to our dietary needs, it makes it very challenging to sometime go the wholesome and healthy routes. It is quite easy and convenient to visit our respective neighborhood store and buy the ready-made food products on hand. And,…
