Recipe for making payme

We are how many days away from Christmas? Time sure does fly! Thanksgiving is next week. That means all the food has started to be planned for the season. Because preparation is important.

There are some foods that are intrinsically thought of as Christmas foods and one of them is paime (pronounced Pay-Me). This is a simple sweet cornmeal dessert, whose combination though can vary from island to island, but can unanimously be said that it is an island favorite.

Spiced Ginger Beer

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Don Q rum for IZEA. All opinions are 100% mine.

A refreshing spiced ginger drink, though not hot, perfect for the fall evenings.

Spiced Ginger Beer Recipe with Don Q rum

It's cocktail time!! And with the way the last few weeks have been going, I need 2, or 3 or 4.

Every day has been hectic. I have been up and down running errands, trying to catch up with blogging and starting to get myself ready to head back to work. By the time night sets in I'm wondering where the day went and why didn't I get anything done.

So yea, can I get a cocktail (or 2) please?

And what do I love as a base for my cocktails the most? RUM (is that an "island" thing?)

As I mentioned to my email subscribers, I have fallen so far behind with things. How could I think I can easily manage a new baby, blogging, life and now... I'm back to work? My gosh.

But I'm trying to play catch up with everything and it also includes another treat from Callaloo Box.

This time it's a snack box! SNACKKKS
