I finally decided to try my hand at doing something interesting with breadfruit, abundant here in Trinidad. It's so strange-looking, that many don't bother with it.
I'm also told that many "snobbish" people here consider eating breadfruit "beneath them"...as if…

I tried a new recipe today for an eggplant lasagna.A friend swore by it, so...I had to see if it was true. Lately I've been trying to limit my wheat, flour, and red meat but I miss my famous lasagna.

We have so many bananas here in Trinidad! Often the heat in the kitchen during the day makes them ripen very fast. Personally, I like bananas at the "just ripened" stage. Once they get too many spots or browned skin, I put them in the fridge and make banana

I normally make the same types of cookies for the holidays, but this year it will be abbreviated. My gingerbread men taste wonderful but it seems not too many others like them, so they're off the list this time. I have a request for my Heavenly Hash and
I love Oriental Crunch, a family…

In Trinidad there is an abundance of foods from many cultures, in addition to the local Creole dishes. But why not Mexican? I can get the standard mass-market tasteless flour tortillas, salsa, etc. But nowhere is there REAL food like the amazing chimichangas,
chorizo, enchiladas, etc. from my…

Finally bought a little freezer to give my fridge a break. Now I can keep the space-hogging breads, meats, nuts in there and use my fridge freezer for often-used, partially-used things. It takes so much less power than I thought it would and is almost silent.
