So glad that I went with the culinary ride. Hopped outside the box and decided to take my yams to another level. Cubed, drizzled with olive oil and sprinkled those nutrient packed foods with cinnamon, a pinch of salt, and powdered ginger.
Placed them on foiled baking sheet and baked at 400 degrees Fahrenheit for approximately 35 minutes until they were crispy on the exterior creamy on the interior.
After cooling, those sweet and crispy treats were added to left-over bite-sized rotisserie chicken (breast portion), a handful of Italian parsley and a few broccoli spears. For dressing, I combined:
a dollop of sour cream
a sprinkle of salt and black pepper
a splash of red wine vinegar
All ingredients were combined and ‘married’ well.
My taste buds were ‘over the moon’ with the mix of in the sweet and savory. It was like a party inside my mouth.
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.
