GREEN FIG VINAIGRETTE

When you hear the word ‘caribbean’ you might immediately think about beaches… tropical paradise and even certain foods right? One being green figs maybe?? Green figs are quiet popular in Trinidad and Tobago. Usually it’s something that’s boil and fried, sometimes curried or just steamed and enjoyed. I wanted to try something different… so as…

FISH BROTH

FISH BROTH! One of my absolute favorite types of local ‘soups’. Actually it IS my favorite! I especially love fish broth (pronounced brof locally) with a lot of green seasoning (a mix of local herbs) and hot pepper. It’s a dish that some, like myself, include macaroni and/or even dumplings. I prefer macaroni as I…

TUNA SALAD

Part of my regular wifey routine on mornings entails preparing brunch for the Hubby.

BHAIGAN/BAIGAN CHOKA (ROASTED EGGPLANT/MELONGENE)

Breakfast during the week usually consists of eggs and toast or cereal.

Yum! Bhaigan choka is…

JAPANESE STYLE RED MISO SOUP

Soups are ideal when you’re a bit under the weather…. or for those cold and cozy winter nights…..orrrr for us Trinidadians, on a weekend, during a get together with family and friends (we like having a ‘cook’ now and then lol) I enjoy soups quite a lot but sometimes having to make soup from scratch…

MACARONI PIE

Macaroni pie is an absolute favorite in Trinidad and Tobago and even throughout the Caribbean!

Here is my easy recipe!…
