Cauliflower is one of those highly underrated vegetables. It’s not super pretty to look at, it tastes pretty bland when just steamed, but try roasting this baby and it’s a whole new ball game. Continue reading
This trip to Cancun had been as close to perfect as it could get. And the morning we were supposed to head home, I thought we were in the clear. Then everything went to hell in a handbasket. Naturally. Continue reading

Today’s recipe comes to you courtesy of my boyfriend Sean.
Actually, it was one of the first things he cooked for me right after we started dating, and to this day whenever we make it together I like to think of that. We’d been going out for just about a month when he invited me over to his house for dinner. My birthday was coming up the following weekend, and in honor of it he was going to cook for me (believe me, I know how lucky I am to have a man who can cook. It’s even better that we enjoying doing it together). I didn’t know what to expect, but I knew he had been following the paleo diet for a while before he met me (my love of baking and sugar served to end that diet in pretty short order), and he made me one of his favorite go-to, hearty recipes. Red chicken curry. And I’ll tell you right now, if the man didn’t already have my heart, he would have had it after that dish. It was delicious, paleo or not!

Ah, Trinidad and Tobago. After getting my fill of industrial San Fernando and seeing where Sean grew up up close and personal( which was awesome), we were headed “down the islands.” And this is when TT most embodied the image people see when they think Caribbean islands. Nothing but beaches, drinks and a slower pace of life. Pretty darn perfect. Continue reading
