Homemade Coconut Milk

A step by step guide to making coconut milk using a fresh coconut.

Homemade Coconut Milk

Coconut is such a staple in Caribbean cooking. Found in abundance, this one item can be made and used in so many different foods from sweet to savory. We are able to get so many uses from a coconut with coconut milk being one of the most common produce along with coconut oil.

Coconut milk has so many amazing benefits and it's quite easy to make.

The Ultimate Fruit Punch

The most refreshing blend of citrus juices, combined with fresh fruit.

You need this!!

Not all fruit punches are equal. Take my word for it. Yes, they all may be refreshing, but I can assure you some just take it over the top. And I think this fruit punch is the one.

What I especially love about summer is the fresh citrus available at the stores. And how sweet they are. And this is what takes this drink a step above those other fruit juices. We use fresh juice. This Ultimate fruit punch uses fresh orange juice, lime juice, grapefruit juice and is chilled then served with chunks of cold fruit. Yes!!!!

Vegetable Lo Mein

What is the one thing I love about me coming from Trinidad and Tobago? Well besides carnival, is the multi-cultural aspect of it. My country has been influenced by so many ethnic groups and our food is a good reflection of them all.

Today's post we focus on the Chinese and their food. I love Chinese food and I definitely think that Caribbean Chinese food has a distinctly different flavor than regular Chinese food because we obviously use ingredients that are authentic to the Caribbean.

This lo mein requires a little prep work but is the perfect combination of noodles, tossed with vegetables in a seasoned sauce. It is a great one pot meal that is perfect for those weeknight dinners.

Easy Strawberry Banana Bread

A moist banana bread paired with sweet strawberries. Perfect for breakfast, dessert or summer snack.

Strawberry Banana Bread

Hi guys, I'm back being a part of an awesome summer roundup with some other awesome bloggers. If you remember a couple months back (let me take the time to mention to you here that "couple" for Caribbean people does NOT mean 2. It can be 3, 4, 5, 10, 100. Everything greater than 2)

I did a roundup of potatoes and I did my fried stuffed potatoes that were a hit. Well, considering it's now summer, this time, the focus is on strawberries. South Florida has them in "Ah bun dunce" now so I gladly opted to contribute a moist banana bread, with the addition of some chunks of fresh, sweet Florida strawberries. The perfect snack for the summer heat.
