It’s been a crazy week! I celebrated my birthday a few days ago, which involved baking a delicious Hazelnut Crunch cake! This was my first attempt at baking a chocolate cake from scratch, and I have to say it turned out really well.

I also went out for dinner with friends on Monday and Tuesday night, and yesterday my mom took me to the Nutcracker High Tea at the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto. I highly recommend taking part in this event if you’re in or near Toronto! I’m hoping to write about my experience there soon, but here’s a photo in the meanwhile:

I had a great time at all of my outings, but they all involved me eating rich and calorie-heavy food. Not that there’s anything wrong with that! I do love to eat, but today I was craving something a bit healthier. Something simple, that wouldn’t take a lot of work. I ended up making baked chicken with pomegranate molasses glaze, which sounds much fancier than it really is.

Where to Stay in St. Maarten?

I need a little break from holiday posts, so I’m doing a Throwback Thursday post instead. These are photos from my stay at the Westin Dawn Beach Resort & Spa in St. Maarten. My family has visited this resort twice now through a timeshare plan that my parents have. The resort has two sections: a […]

Holiday Gift Guide for Food Lovers

It’s finally December!!! Despite the freezing weather, December is my favourite month of the year. I love that all the stores are dressed up for the holidays. I love the Christmas carols on the radio. I also love all of the cool events that happen in December. I’ll be sharing some pictures from the Christmas […]

Massaged Kale Salad with Pine Nuts & Pomegranate

I’m not sure when it happened, but I’ve recently noticed that I enjoy eating kale. Which is weird, because last year I would only eat kale if it was baked into kale chips. This year I’ve eaten a kale in salads and on top of pizzas (the Cavalo pizza at Fabbrica is delicious!), and I’ve been wanting […]

Roasted Tomato Crostini Recipe

The downside of being self-employed is that there aren’t any office holiday parties to go to. Not that I went to my office party last year… I had gone the year before and was bored out of my mind. The food didn’t impress me either. There were some generic spring rolls, a few chicken satay […]

Chocolate Pecan Pie with Maple Syrup

This post is sponsored by Tenderflake.  All opinions are 100% mine. We are having some crazy weather here in Ontario today! I just looked out of my window and it looks like a scene out of The Wizard of Oz. The sky is grey, the wind is picking up leaves and other debris, and it’s […]

Cheddar Jalapeno Cornbread and a Scratched Cornea

“You must be really good at cooking now,” my friend said to me the other day. I looked at her and laughed. “You should see what my kitchen looks like when I’m cooking,” I said. “I’m always droppings things, burning myself – it’s not pretty.” “So are all your photos a lie? Is it all […]

Coconut “Breakfast Bun” Cookies

Here it is, the final recipe from my trio of coconut flavoured treats. If you missed the first two, you can check them out here and here. These cookies are super versatile, and are fairly easy to make. What makes them special is their unique biscuit-like texture. These soft buttery cookies are much more like […]

Birds-Eye-Sorrel

Spiced Caribbean Sorrel Drink

Sorrel is a drink that is traditionally served at Christmas time in the Caribbean. It is made by steeping the sepals of the Roselle (Hibiscus) plant in water with spices. There are many different versions of this drink: some people add ginger or cloves, others add white rum etc. The recipe I’m sharing today belonged to my grandmother, and […]

Coconut-Bun-Close-Up

Caribbean Chelsea Buns

If you saw my Coconut Shortbread Cookie post, then you’ll know that this is the second of three coconut flavoured recipes that I photographed for my blog. What can I say? I’m Trinidadian – I love coconut! These Chelsea Buns are loaded with Caribbean flavours like coconut, allspice, and Angostura Bitters.  They are sweet, aromatic, […]

Apple Cider Close Up

Orange Spiced Hot Apple Cider

Have you ever noticed that certain smells can bring back specific memories? For me, the smell of  basil reminds me of my grandmother (because she loved the way it smelled). It doesn’t always have to be a food smell…when I plug in a hot glue gun, I am reminded of all the crafts I made […]

Coconut-Shortbread-Cookies

Coconut Shortbread Cookies with an Easy Cookie Glaze

I am obsessed with all things coconut. Maybe it’s because of my Caribbean heritage… I’m fairly certain that I have coconut water running through my veins. Actually, I’ve heard that coconut water was used in place of blood transfusions back in the day, so it’s possible right? This recipe is the first of three holiday […]

Mandarin Orange Jelly Recipe

Sometimes I take photos and forget to upload them to my blog. Today I was looking through my Christmas photos from 2010 and found these bright orange beauties. How did I forget to post these!! My photography has improved a lot since I took these, but I decided that they are still pretty enough to […]
