Trinidad and Tobago is a multi-ethnic society and as such its cuisine is made up of the many cultures that make up our island. Because of our multi-faceted culture we enjoy dishes influenced from the Amerindians, Europeans, Africans, Indians and the Chinese to name a few.
My objective with this website is to make home cooking simple, fast, delicious and healthy. This site is dedicated to the working wife and mother whose time is precious and could use all the cooking tips for providing healthy meals for her loved ones. Dads, you are also welcome to visit this site and cook surprisingly wonderful meals for the whole family. Imagine them saying, “Dad, this is so cool“. You will find quick-fixed, on the go meals for breakfast and lunch and a scrumptious dinner that will be a delight to prepare and you know what, you can even fix up a delicious dessert to compliment the meal. Your family will say,
“Mom I did not know you even knew how to cook this” and you’d say, “hidden talents“.
Make boring home cooking a thing of the past and get creative with my simple yet scrumptious dishes! I can guarantee that you and your loved ones will have great family moments preparing these dishes. Bon Appetit.
- This is one of my favorite cooking tips that I recommend to all my visitors. Ensure that your pantry and refrigerator is always fully stocked with the ingredients that you use regularly. I have found that doing this allows me to be able to create my favorite meals very easily and in addition I can be more creative with my dishes. It is only foods like fruit, ground provisions and vegetables that cannot be stocked for any long period of time. These items would have to be purchased weekly. Another thing stocking up can be very cost effective. I purchase my groceries at a wholesale store so I save a lot of money whereas if I purchase groceries every time I have to prepare a meal, I would spend more money that way.
- Over the years I have become very dispondent about keeping fresh herbs in my fridge. I recently tried putting a bundle of parsley in a glass of water and putting it in the fridge and I found that the parsley stayed fresh for a longer period of time. Quite encouraging for me when I open my fridge to see that I have some fresh herb that I can cook with!
- I normally use a plastic bag to put my garbage when I am cooking and when I am done, I put the plastic bag in the garbage bin. Or I make a few trips to the garbage bin to dispose of my garbage. I recently purchased a plastic bowl to knead my bread dough in but ending up not using it. I recently decided to use this same bowl as a Garbage Bowl or GB as popularly called by Rachel Ray on Food Network. This Garbage Bowl idea is working out quite nice actually! I like it!
