Homemade bread-making is a real, full-time thing in the Caribbean. We can spend hours every weekend mixing and kneading dough to make some kind of bread in some form to feed the family. Depending on where you are too, it becomes a collective effort, to feed multiple families. Our bread can vary from loaves to rounds, flat discs. It can be sweet or savory. Some can require yeast, others do not. And sometimes it's not even the traditional bread loaf, but some other flour-based item that is used to fill a family us

Oxtail Soup in Slow Cooker

This oxtail soup in the slow cooker is the ultimate blending of flavors. A hearty combination of meat and veggies creating an end result of a delicious soup which is just what your family would need for dinner. I know everyone is all into using their Instant Pots now to make quick meals but there are somethings that I feel still need to be low and slow. And oxtail soup in my slow cooker is one of them. This is a soup that is packed with flavors that are allowed to blend together as it cooks slowly. No rush. No sweat. Just simmering and blending of flavors.

Cassava (Yuca) Salad with Carrots

A delicious and easy side recipe using one of the Caribbean's favorite ground provision, cassava (yuca). Quick and easy side option with many health benefits. As Caribbean people, and Africans, we depend heavily on ground provisions as a staple in most of our meals. We use it a lot!! From cassava to dasheen to sweet potatoes, eddoes tannia. We, Caribbean people, also sometimes include green banana, breadfruit, and plantain into this category. Ground provision is considered the "Food of Champions" and is said to contribute to strong, healthy individuals. This cassava salad is healthy, but for me, first and foremost it is delicious.

A combination of coconut bake and cheese biscuits, this makes the perfect breakfast sandwich or afternoon snack. This is an easy and fool proof recipe. Back in the kitchen, I am, kinda.

But then I felt for a good Caribbean breakfast one day and wanted some roast bake. Then I remembered I had a recipe for a reformed coconut bake.
