Wanted a quick, easy, and satisfying dish for lunch. Decided on hard-boiled eggs on a bed of garlic asparagus. Paired same with servings of summer’s sweet/juicy tomatoes and creamy avocado. Made sure to sprinkle with black pepper and pinch of salt. With a few crispy whole-wheat crackers (not in pic) on side, lunch was served.
Felt like I was transported to a tropical paradise for lunch. My palate and I couldn’t wait to devour a sweet, tart and mouth-watering serving of mango salsa. My protein of choice was heart-healthy salmon. This omega acid fish was seared on both sides in a drizzle of olive oil. Then a lime-butter sauce wasContinue reading “SEARED SALMON WITH MANGO SALSA”

Couscous is uncooked semolina balls (likened to fineContinue reading “ROASTED CITRUS DRUMSTICKS ON A BED OF COUSCOUS”
With the cool and windy weather on the outskirts, I decided to fire-up my oven for a comforting meal. Had all the ingredients on hand and decided to make an orange-roasted chicken with onions.

My palate and I were in a seafood kind of mood for supper. It was quite a delightful change to place a hold on the feathery one (chicken) and indulged in a light yet satisfying seafood meal.

That’s it! I’m the queen of left-overs. I was super-delighted to have an encore performance with my balsamic pork steak. And, performed it did. You see, I’m a huge consumer of the feathery one (poultry) and seafood in general. However, over the week-end, I indulged in a dish of pork steak along with some herb-roastedContinue reading “BALSAMIC PORK STEAK WITH ASPARAGUS/BROCCOLI”
Asparagus has been around the block for hundreds of years. It is said that this super food has aphrodisiac effects; and for me, that’s music to my ears.

Sunday’s supper was quite a treat. Actually, I must have consumed this popular Jamaican dish hundreds of time since childhood. Now, that’s a lot of chicken going on! Anyway, when I laid eyes on my skinless and bone-in chicken thighs, I knew exactly how I was going to prep and cook same. The previous night,Continue reading “AN OLD FAVE MADE MY DAY! ##CURRIED CHICKEN THIGHS”
