Last month, I invited a few friends over and included gourmet popcorn in the snack lineup.
When my guests started asking where it was from, I couldn’t help but smirk a little. Truth is, it wasn’t store-bought, I hadn’t spent a fortune on it–and I’d made it under 10 minutes.
I thought I would share the recipe with you.
It’s been four days since I started the Slow Seven Challenge. And what an adventure it has been!
I have had mostly meals of seasonal fruits and veggies available in Barbados. Well, mostly avocado, really. Because I just can’t get enough of it.
For the next seven days, I’ll be changing the way I eat. It’s nerve-racking and exciting all at the same time. Here’s why.
I love having people over. But when it’s at a moment’s notice, things can get dicy.
So many thoughts swirl through my head:
Will I be able to tidy all of this before they get here?
Do I have drinks chilled?
Will I have enough ice?
What will they eat?
How can I fit this into my budget?
If you’re from Barbados, you know that macaroni pie is a staple on most dinner tables, particularly on Sundays and on holidays. It’s that one thing most Bajans born in the 80’s and beyond can’t seem to get enough of.
Truth is, perfecting my Bajan macaroni pie recipe has taken me years but finally, I think I’ve got it.
In this post, I’m sharing the mistakes I made along the way so you don’t have to, as well as tips for making this yummy-in-your-tummy Barbadian dish.
For many years, I had a love-hate relationship with TJX stores. You know, the family of discount stores that includes HomeGoods, Marshalls and T.J.Maxx.
Finding clothing in my size was a rare occurrence. Finding size-six shoes, even rarer. And scoring items I needed in a complete set was a miracle. Think: curtain panels for a space with more than two windows or dinnerware for a party of six.
Recently, I realized I’ve been going about my shopping at TJX stores all wrong.
In case I’ve never said it, Nando’s Peri-Peri is one of my favorite fast-casual restaurants.
My “usual” is a veggie burger topped with a pineapple slice and halloumi, and a side of butternut squash and grilled corn. It is so delicious!
On Friday, I just had to have it. Thousands of miles away from D.C. and with no Nando’s in sight in Barbados, I headed to the kitchen to recreate it–with a twist.
I’m so delighted with how it turned out, I’m sharing the photos and tips for making it with you.
