Coconut Oil Puffs

Happy July! It’s the first day of the month and that calls for a new recipe! And I’ve got the perfect one for you to try and get your fingers wet in the land of gluten free baking. It’s my Gluten Free Coconut Oil Puff or Choux Pastry and it’s more commonly know. In Trinidad these are a real treat for breakfast of snack, stuffed with chicken salad, cheese paste or tuna paste, and it’s something that’s always on our menu.

Chinese Chicken Corn Soup

It’s dry season here in Trinidad and the air is a real mess. With the Sahara dust and the dust from the dried grass and shrubs my allergies are taking a real beating. And when I’m feeling under the weather, there’s nothing that works better to easy my symptoms and give me a boost that a bowl of soup.

Orange & Cranberry Oat Biscotti

Spring is definitely here!!!  Not only can we see it in fresh citrus fruits and the blossoming flowers, we can feel it in the slight tickle of our noses with all the pollen in the air. But, with the dawn of spring, brings new ingredients for recipes and fun new projects to try. Like this Orange and Cranberry Oat Biscotti. Although this recipe has been long in the making, I felt now was the best time to share it!

Tasty & Spicy Kale Chips

Move over popcorn, there’s a new snack in the bowl!!! I know it sounds weird, but I’m not a fan of popcorn. I’m probably one of the few people that don’t like it, but there’s just something about it that I don’t have the taste for. So while everyone is sitting down with their bowl full of their popcorn, I’m grabbing for something else. Like this bowl of Spicy Kale Chips!!

Slow Cooker Teriyaki Chicken

Like I’ve said before, some girls collect shoes, I collect appliances, and handbags. Because, let’s admit it, what girl doesn’t love a good handbag. But anyways, as I was saying, I collect appliances and my latest addition is my Slow Cooker!

So far this is one of my favs!! And of course, I couldn’t just get a plain old black or grey, I got a teal striped one from Black + Decker.

Arrowroot Coconut Wraps

When my Friends at Bobs Red Mill Trinidad asked me to create a recipe using Arrowroot, I must admit I was stumped for a second. Mostly I use Arrowroot to bind my burgers, thicken my soups and as a flour in my blends, but never as the main ingredient.

So what’s a girl to do!?!? Troll Pinterest! (lol…my place of inspiration)

Sigh…But that didn’t help much and I had to go back to my recipe drawing board and think again. I played around with different things and came up with a few ideas until it hit me….why not make Arrowroot Coconut Wraps instead of Tapioca Coconut Wraps.
