Pesto Latkes (recipe)

Pesto Latkes (recipe)

How cute are these ‘latkes’? πŸ™‚ I have to put the quotation marks because they are neither fried, nor flat (oh the sacrilege!). But… they are so light, crisp and flavourful that I can’t get too worked up so do ignore my faux outrage πŸ™‚ […]

Oven-Crisped Potato Latkes (recipe)

Oven-Crisped Potato Latkes (recipe)

This latke recipe is adapted from one that I saw several years ago in EatingWell Magazine. It has become a perennial favourite and is one that will probably please latke purists/minimalists in the crowd. I particularly enjoy it with sour cream. Technique wise this latke […]

Curried Potato Chips (recipe)

Blog Party #43 is here! The theme this month is “Spice It Up”. According to the event’s host Stephanie of Dispensing Happiness: The chill of February has definitely gotten to me. I’m cold. I’m tired of being cold. I want warmth…but it looks like the […]

Creamy Broccoli Soup (recipe)

Another hearty soup that I prepared on a damp, rainy night. It’s so thick and creamy no one will believe it’s also dairy-free! And, I can imagine that if there are kids or adults out there who usually don’t like broccoli this is a great […]

Trinidad Aloo Pies (recipe)

Is there a Trini who hasn’t chomped on an aloo pie? It seems that I’ve been eating them as long as I can remember. They were a staple in both my primary and secondary schools’ cafeterias (or as we call them ‘tuck shops’). They are […]

Eggplant-Potato ‘Surprise’ (recipe)

Eggplant-Potato ‘Surprise’ (recipe)

So what is the ‘surprise’? Probably the pack of heat that this recipe delivers πŸ™‚ I used a whole scotch bonnet this time but would probably reduce that to 1/2 the next time I make this. It was a hit with my mom tho πŸ™‚ […]

Great Garlic Galette (recipe)

At the time that I am writing this Passover is a little less than 24 hours away from ending*, and I’m starting to daydream about all sorts of leavened goodness. For those who don’t already know Passover is an 8 day period in the Jewish […]

Tuna-Potato Casserole (recipe)

I expanded this one dish meal from a recipe in one of those little checkout aisle booklets that my mom has held on to from the 70’s πŸ™‚ We served it with a crisp vegetable salad on the side. I think it’s a pretty flexible […]

Blog Party #17: Aloo Tiki (with Mango Chutney) & Sarina’s Sparkling Ginger-Lime Shandy

Today’s Blog Party theme was Hollywood (Lights! Camera! Action!). So, inspired by the movie “A Passage to India” I decided to make a batch of Aloo Tiki. But I didn’t know what alcoholic beverage to serve them with. I had read that beer goes well […]

If I was to host a Tropical Thanksgiving, what would I serve? That question has been in my head with all the Thanksgiving promotions on the US television channels. So, for this post I thought that I would troll the ol blogosphere for Thanksgiving recipes […]
