Sarina’s Vegetarian “Krabby Patty” Burgers (recipe)

I normally don’t enter one of my recipes to multiple events but I’m in a bit of a time crunch and I really wanted to take part in Food In Film, as well as “Waiter There’s Something in my… Meatless Barbecue”. Having been a Film 

Spiced Orange Mold (recipe)

Wow, this has really been a year of confronting, and overcoming, my culinary fears! Who knew I had so many? So far this year I have created soufflés, tackled British food, baked several successful cakes, and combined peanuts with chicken. You’d think at this point 

Coconut Rock Buns (recipe)

Coconut rock buns are a nostalgic treat for me. I vividly remember saving up my allowance, as a child ,to buy them from the lady who sold baked goods out of the back of her station wagon every Wednesday afternoon at my prep school. Now 

Scallion Pancakes and Sarina’s Sparkling Green Tea (recipe)

Scallion Pancakes and Sarina’s Sparkling Green Tea (recipe)

Several months ago, Canadian food blogger kslobodian (who was also the subject of my second Nyam interview) posted a recipe for Green Onion pancakes. Green onion pancakes (or scallion pancakes as I know them) were something that I was introduced to during my college years 

Jamaican Cornmeal and Cheese Cakes (recipe)

Jamaican Cornmeal and Cheese Cakes (recipe)

Most of the recipes that I post here have been made on a Friday for Shabbat dinner, however there is a significant amount of recipes that are also made around 7p.m. when I get the ‘munchies’. This recipe for Jamaican cornmeal and cheese cakes is 

Sarina’s Chocolate Saturns & Ginger Trigs (recipes)

Spaced out by the title of this post? You should be! I’ve been bit by the Sci-Fi bug just in time for this month’s Blog Party 🙂 Inspired by The Happy Sorceress’ theme requirements, and some leftover ginger ‘hard candy’ that I had made on 

Fried Plantain (recipe)

Fried Plantain is a simple snack that appears to be common on tabletops across the Caribbean. I’ve grown up eating them my father’s way which is to wait for the plantain skins to turn almost black before panfrying them on high heat, until they are 

TGRWT #2 – Savoury Banana Fritters (recipe)

Although this is the first time that I am sharing an entry to They Go Really Well Together (TGRWT) this is actually not the first time that I’ve created a recipe for this ongoing ‘Molecular Gastronomy Project’. Unfortunately my first creation was so ghastly, so 

Batter-Fried Zucchini (recipe)

Fried vegetables in a light, almost meringue-like, batter. Delicious! Although this recipe calls for squash or zucchini I used up veggies that I had on hand (cauliflower, potatoes, mushrooms and more!) The results were just as excellent. This is -the- perfect beer food 😆

Friendship Cookies (recipe)

There are three things that are always in stock in my mom’s pantry, onions, garlic and ginger. We use ginger in so many dishes it’s not funny! I suspect it’s a holdover from the Chinese part of her heritage 😛 Most recently I used ginger 

Trini-Style Hamburgers (recipe)

I love burgers and I’ve made no attempt to hide my belief that Trini street burgers are extremely special 🙂 So, when I saw that Writing At The Kitchen Table was having a burger challenge I knew I had to throw my hat into the 

Lag B’Omer – Picnics are Fun!

One thing that many people (both Jewish and non-Jewish) don’t know is how many holidays and festivals there are in the Jewish calendar. Although the best known celebration is Hannukah (because of the proximity it shares at times to Christmas), Hannukah is actually a relatively 

Trinidad Aloo Pies (recipe)

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 

Scottish Oatcakes (recipe)

When I first read about Beck ‘n Posh’s British food challenge (titled Fish n Quips) I was immediately filled with curiousity, excitement and fear. You see, and I hope I don’t offend too many, most of my memories of eating in England are far from
