Jamaican Roast Beef

This is something I've now made a hand full of times, including for my Mum's surprise birthday dinner. It is a fave of Fred's and was actually requested by him last night. Depending on the size roast you choose, there may or not be left overs after dinner. read more

Super Easy Ice-Cream Cake

Over the weekend my best friend of over a decade came to Florida to spend her birthday with us. On Sunday we had her over for dinner with this ice cream cake for dessert. I found the recipe on this food website that I just conveniently can't find now. But I remember what I did so let's get into it. read more

My Mom's Cornmeal Porridge

I promised Fred that I would make him porridge for breakfast one day during the week, but I wanted to do t the way that my mom does it, so I kinda got her help on this one but with my own measurements. read more

Super Easy Jamaican Carrot Juice 

Another Sunday has passed and we had some more people over for dinner.
We made steak and potatoes, which were amazing to say the least. But I decided that today was the day that I was finally going to use the can of carrot juice that was sitting int he fridge for months. This is definitely NOT for anyone under the legal drinking age in your country. You will taste less carrot and more alcohol lol but it's SO good. You can of course use carrots and puree them, but this is the Super easy cheat code version! read more

Jamaican Curry Goat 

Curry goat is the one thing that Jamaicans HAVE to have at every major event or gathering. It is possible, that something might be inherently wrong with you, if you don't like curry goat. We're having company over for dinner tonight and curry goat is the one thing that is easy enough yet "special" enough to serve to our guests. read more

Breakfast Casserole

Over the weekend I hosted my second brunch. There were four of us in total so I din't go over board with the food. I had guava pastries, fruits, mini chicken and waffles and a breakfast casserole. The mini waffles didn't at all come out how I pictured in my head but I LOVED the casserole. I found the recipe on Pintrest and the next time I do this I'll definitely tweak it a bit. - read more.

Jamaican Cabbage & Corn Beef


Corn beef and cabbage, more appropriately known in Jamaica as "bully beef & cabbage", is one of those super easy one pot meals for those lazy days or when you don't have the time to sit down and cook a big meal. This can be served with dumplins, (boiled or fried), rice, bread or even on its own with a couple slices of avocado. - read more.

Jamaican Cornmeal Porridge

Today for breakfast I made something I haven't made in nearly a year! Fred LOVES cornmeal porridge and has been asking me to make it for the longest time now. As you can tell from the picture its super thick! If you don't want your porridge as thick as mine feel free to add more water. 

Banana Fritters

One of the best things about going to the country for weekends and holidays is waking up to the amazing smell of banana fritters peeling out of the kitchen. Today I decided to wake my family up with the familiar fragrance. Especially since we had over ripened bananas. - read more.

Fried Chicken

The easiest, yummiest, fried chicken you'll ever eat. All the ingredients are pretty basic and you can fry these traditionally (on the stove) or in the oven. - read more.

Ackee & Saltfish

This morning I made ackee and saltfish for my family for like the hundredth time for breakfast and then I noticed that I never shared how I make it. I don't add too many things that will alter the "true" taste of the food. - read more.

Jamaican Brown Stew Chicken

My Mom's Baked Chicken

Growing up in Jamaica Sunday dinner was the one thing I looked forward to every week. I literally only had one request and that was "chicken leg and macaroni & cheese". Naturally, as I got older and was introduced to cooking by an ex-boyfriend I just had to learn how to make the bake chicken mummy made. After a while I began to add and take away certain ingredients and made it my own. - read more.

Homemade Coleslaw & Stove Top Burgers

Jamaican Chicken Soup

This is literally the easiest thing you'll ever make. And I'll probably say this about everything I post here. Today we're going to Fred's little sister's graduation and I'm doing makeup on two faces on top of everything else so I figured I'll do the one thing I don't have to hover over constantly. And why not write a post about it in the mean time right?
