Cooking As An Antidepressant

On family vacation in Orlando we were hanging out at the hotel pool. It was a crazy sunny day so we decided the best course of action was to sit by the pool and bake in the sun. The kids took this opportunity to go up and down the pool slide endlessly. After about two…

Current State of Affairs, Part 3

After almost three years, we are finally finding some direction with the blog and figuring out what we are doing here. It is pretty easy to look at something like a blog and think anyone can do it because it is so accessible. However, a lot more goes into it than you would ever know…

The Best Food Adventure in New York City: Chelsea Market.

New York City is one of the best food destinations in the world because of it’s diversity. It is a city where the population is incredibly jaded. Someone is always trying something new, making it a paradise for hungry foodies. Unfortunately, this can also be overwhelming to someone new to an intense food scene. Luckily,…

Always Return Food Containers With Something In Them.

Are parents supposed to teach you gratitude? They definitely teach you to be polite. When someone gives you something, you say, ‘Thank you’ but is that true gratitude? It is being polite and it is the appropriate reply but it doesn’t necessarily equate to being grateful. My parents did very well teaching me manners. I…

The Best Restaurant in Kathmandu: Western Tandoori

Landing in Nepal was overwhelming. Kathmandu isn’t a huge city but it is a very active one. It is overpopulated, over-polluted and it can all be overpowering. As soon as I got off the plane I couldn’t help wondering if this is the way things are done or if I was just being taken advantage…

Spend Time, ‘At Home With a Bajan’.

I am from a small island called Barbados and I firmly believe everyone needs a Barbadian in their life. New Youtuber Rasheeda is making that a reality. She is cooking, motivating and teaching everyone. It is about being the best you can be, the Bajan way. The current global situation has affected everyone. It is…

The Importance of Eating At The Dinner Table.

We recently bought a dinner table. Nothing big, just a small four-seater that moves if you push on it too hard. There is nothing particularly special about the table and to be honest the construction is a bit questionable, however, I love it. Before we had a large three seat, triangular monstrosity. I hated it…

The Best Restaurant in Tobago: La Tartaruga.

La Tartaruga is an unexpected culinary gem found in Tobago. I wanted to go there based on the recommendation of another blogger. I wasn’t sure what to expect, being an Italian restaurant in a small Caribbean island. All I knew was that my friends had a good experience and it seemed like a restaurant worth…

How to Eat Like The Gilmore Girls.

Gilmore Girls is a coming-of-age story that centers around the witty and whimsical, Lorelai and Rory Gilmore. Trying to eat like a Gilmore Girl is nearly impossible. They eat endless junk food, copious amounts of coffee and little to no vegetables. Yet they have flawless skin and aren’t morbidly obese, all on a single mother’s…
