A REPEAT PERFORMANCE #CURRIED CHICKEN THIGHS

I felt like a maestro conducting her orchestra. I don’t claim to be an expert; however, for me, earlier, it was a repeat performance with my curried chicken thighs. You see, my palate requested the left-overs I had in my freezer. And that was music to my ears. Like most of us, I’ve a super-busy…

I’M BEETING IT THIS WEEK! #BEET/CARROT/GINGER JUICE

It’s no secret; most store-bought drinks and juices are loaded with large amounts of sugars and preservatives. As a result, I try to keep them to a minimum.  So, whenever I can, I crave out sometime each week and prepare my home-made juices and drinks. At least I know that they are fresh and only…

A HAPPY ENCORE #JERK CHICKEN THIGHS

I can never grow tired of a jerk chicken dish. I would’ve had my chicken thighs a million and one ways; however, I chose to revisit the jerky-side of things. Moreover, it’s the week-end, and for me, a week-end isn’t a week-end without a meal consisting of this succulent, spicy, and mouth-watering Jamaican condiment. I…

NATURE’S BOUNTY #ROASTED ROOT VEGETABLES

I can’t complain. The autumn (Fall) season has emerged in my kitchen in a huge way. It has doled out  some of earth’s finest in the form of root vegetables. Thus, I treated them one of the favorite ways I like. I decided to roast them. Roasting is perfect for these veggies as it brings…

A JOYFUL MORNING JOLT! #OATMEAL AND FRUITS

You may call me a repeat ‘offender’ if you wish. But, it was with a merry heart that I chose to revisit one of my favorite morning cereals. One of the great things about oatmeal is that it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other cereals. Most importantly, it’s loaded with heart-healthy whole grain properties that will…

A STORMY DAY DISCOVERY! #LEFT-OVER CURRIED CHICKEN THIGHS

As dark clouds blanketed the evening skies, I hastily made my way to my humble kitchen. Mother Nature was at work on this first day of autumn (well, that’s what the calendar states). However, the elements screamed summer conditions within my midst. With thunder roaring and the skies lighting up, I knew it was quite…

IT’S A WRAP #TORTILLA SCRAMBLED WRAPS

Trying my utmost best to maintain a fine balance. Thus, for breakfast, I went the whole grain route. I did so by employing the aid of Mexican tortilla wraps. These wraps are loaded with about 9 grams of fiber which was music to my ears as I like to incorporate as much fiber in my…

WEDGES OF SWEET GOODNESS #CARROT/SWEET POTATO WEDGES

It was like Christmas in September. My kitchen emitted a bouquet of warm and aromatic flavors that enveloped my entire abode. Guys, I’m talking about the co-mingling of paprika and cinnamon sprinkled on  wedges of carrot and sweet potatoes. With a drizzle of canola oil and a pinch of sea salt along with the earthy…

ODD COMPANIONS? #SAUTEED CABBAGE/KALE WITH HARD-BOILED EGGS

It’s not often that I pair these food items. However, my palate was in a strange mood; so I rolled with the ‘punches’. Moreover, I just wanted to use up some left-over sautéed cabbage and kale I had cooked a couple of days ago. There was no way I was going toss. After all, that…

A JAMAICAN FAVE #ESCOVITCHED SNAPPER FISH

This old favorite of mine was due for an early revisit. After making a delicious fish broth(tea) with the heads of my two snapper along with root vegetables, I decided to continue the traditional way and did a Jamaican escovitch fish dish with the remainder of my snapper. Although this dish is predominately served during…

SHOTS OF CULINARY REDEMPTION #KIWI/KALE/STAR FRUIT SMOOTHIE

I admit; I have been quite a naughty girl over the week-end. Yes, I fell off the ‘wagon’ as I sometimes do. I indulged in some calorie-laden, mouth-watering type of goodies. Oh, they were sinfully delicious. After all, I’m human and what’s life without a little salty, sweet and fried delights? Thinking about them sets…

FISH HEADS RULE!! #FISH BROTH (TEA)

I had just finished my morning’s work out and my endorphins were kicking. Moreover, I had all this pent-up energy within. What did I do? I headed for my kitchen and grabbed a couple of snapper fish that I had reserved for tomorrow’s dinner. Immediately I had a clear plan. I grabbed my cutting board…
