In My Kitchen // Tasty Orange Shrimp

Back in the kitchen yet again! Let’s face it, I enjoy cooking, but detest washing the dishes after. I love finding new things to experiment with and I got to thank PINTERST for that. As a quick meal for after work or school I decided on shrimp for the meat; with a simple search and there were so many options. HONEY ORANGE FIRECRACKER SHRIMP spiked my interest and taste buds.

In my Kitchen // Twice-Baked Potato

Hey Guys!!

Hope all is well. Since I’ve been home quite a bit due to my sick leave, I’ve had more time to be in the kitchen *also since my mom is away*. This week we wanted to try something different from our usual spread, so we remembered something my mom used to do in the past. TWICE BAKED POTATO ~ it’s easy and fun to make, because you can add all the things you’d want on a regular Baked/Loaded Potato.

Here we go:

Power Breakfast Recipe

Good Morning Guys!!

Some days are so hectic that you don’t have time to grab breakfast or maybe you’re just not in the mood for solid food. Well here’s a recipe for one of my favorite breakfast shakes; this was go-to back in college when I had to dash out of the house.

It’s simple and easy to make. Basically putting all the ingredients into the blender and voila! This shake is also filled with protein, so not only will it help you feel energized but it would (should) keep you filled till lunch.

Local Food // Caribbean Style

“Local” – relating or restricted to a particular area or one’s neighborhood

For this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was ‘Local’; they asked us to show what home means to us, and where our hearts lay. The first thing I could think of when I heard the word ‘local’ was FOOD.

Food in the Caribbean is VERY different to that of America and other places around the world. Of course each island has something different that they specialize in, however regionally we carry almost the same products.

As mentioned in a previous post (In my Kitchen // Roast Whole Chicken ) Sunday dinners are usually a big thing, but so is breakfast.

Let’s just say Sundays are for plenty cooking.
