Soursop Ice Block

When it is about 30° C outside, I can think of no better way to stay cool than by sucking on some tasty soursop ice block. Perfect to suck while I watch “3rd Rock from the Sun” on Netflix. It is really hot these days, and we all must find some way to stay cool….

Cassava Farine

As a little boy growing up, cassava farine was something of an acquired taste for me. First, it was dry, really dry; Second, it wasn’t much on the tastebuds either…. Dry and no taste didn’t work for me as a child. But soon enough there was a work around…Milk and Sugar. We would add sugar…

Curried Goat and Pigeon Peas

This curried goat and pigeon peas is the bomb.  When you’re tired of the same old same old way of preparing goat I would recommend that you try adding some pigeon peas into the mix. It really brings out the taste of the curried goat and makes it a complete side dish that you could…

Pineapple, Bacon and Rice

Pineapple is not the type of ingredient you will find in a traditional trini pot cooking away with rice. But, by expanding my cuisine/ cooking/ taste horizons through the past few years, I have learnt to embrace the many subtle, bold, exciting and curious ingredient combinations that there are into my schema. Hmm! Sounded like…

Garlic Mashed Potatoes

During the holidays, I really got tired seeing all that food. I mean literally seeing people around me over eating had me wondering if they were eating to live or living to eat.  As I stated a few posts ago, the materialism, and possibly all other “isms”, really go on a joy ride  during the…

Fruit Cooler

It can certainly be refreshing; a fruit cooler can be just what you need not just during the hot summer months, but during times of stress. I know the Christmas season can be really stressful. This is not a money-saving month. And yet it comes and goes so quickly –  just like the salary. Therefore,…
