Tobago Fish Broth (Soup)

A classic, light soup packed with varying ground provisions and fish. Full of flavor, this soup is perfect for the cool days and nights. The weather has officially gotten to fall weather here in South Florida. So it's time to pull out all the warming dishes. The funny thing is this fish broth wasn't eaten in the Caribbean to "warm you up". Having soup is a part of most household's Saturday ritual. Soup Saturday is no joke. Every Saturday as a rule. Not that there couldn't be other random weekdays some soup wouldn't pop up but know that Saturday mornings, a soup pot would be bubbling. This fish broth, or "broff" as it's fondly referred to as is a nicely well-flavored liquid packed with ground vegetables and slices of your favorite fish. It gets it's flavor from fresh herbs and well-seasoned fish. One taste of this and you will definitely understand why this dish, though considered a "poor man's dish" is well wort

PawPaw (Papaya) Drink

A refreshing pawpaw (papaya drink) great for breakfast or an afternoon pick me up. While trying to find a name for this post I learned that we make a lot of "punches". Why do we call, and by we I mean Trinis and Tobagonians, refer to everything that "mix up" as a punch? So I decided to go against our norm and name this a "drink". Clever huh? Haha. So this is another mix-up drink that is beyond delicious and also has some major health benefits. Another easy blend, this time with papaya, which is more popularly knows as pawpaw in the tropical climates.

Easy Jamaican Hard Dough Bread

A popular Jamaican delicacy, this bread is firm on the outside, dense and tender on the inside.  With a slightly sweeter hint than other bread, it's perfect for sandwiches that require a firm base. In this post I'll be showing you how to make this amazing bread and will be introducing you to another easy sandwich bread that is popular in other parts of the Caribbean. Well, well, look at me making bread and being so happy about it. Every week I go to the grocery I grab a loaf of hard dough bread and a loaf of potato bread. Before I could turn around, for sure the hard dough is done. Where de bread went? This firm, slightly sweet bread is a heavy bread that is perfect for making sandwiches. You know those nice turkey sandwiches, with cheese and lettuce and tomato. Yum!! Or paired with some jerk chicken to sap up the sauce. This may not be the exact replica of the authentic bread, it comes pretty close.
