Did I Tell You I Cook Too??

Did I Tell You I Cook Too??

Here I am sharing a bit more about me! It may not seem like it but I like to eat...well delicious food anyway. I love savory flavors and spices. Yum! I am Jamaican so most of what I make has that Caribbean feel.

I'm traditional too so I think all women should cook but not to the point of being barefoot and pregnant in a kitchen all the time. I just think cooking is such a great way to show your love for your family and loved ones. It's also very relaxing for me.

So this weekend I made:

Baked salmon steak with mango salsa, served with wild rice, plantains, steamed mixed vegetables and buttered croissant.


Gungo (pigeon peas) rice & peas with baked chicken, fried plantains and steamed mixed vegetables.

    I LOVE Jamaican and Carribean good in general. My hubby is from the Carribean so I really appreciate the great flavours :)

  16. Thanks so much lovelies. Can I tell u how full the bf and I were after that meal. LOL. He loves to eat too so...hahahahaa! I am no chef so i have no real recipes. Honestly I freelance in the kitchen and have no idea how much I use of anything. Plus I toss everything together and hope for the best. LOL!

    LOL Saadeh. No u should go for it! I don't intend on posting recipes at all because I just cook freestyle. Hahahaa! I have no concept of measurements so I can't even share a recipe just pics of food I make. If cooking is a bigger passion I would love to get ur recipes for sure.

    Oh Erin! Now u have me wanting saltfish! I have some ackee I can whip up too! Yum!

    Thx Sha girl! I love to cook for loved ones. I may post a couple more food stuff but I'm by far no chef so I can't even share recipes. LOL. I'm gonna check out ur blog for food ideas.

    I agree Picasso! Those r my outlets too. i need to start more baking as well.

    Hahahhaaaaa msjay! I hope the bloodwork turned out well after some drooling. :)

    Try it Manda! Jamaican food is delish!
