Eat Outs // OJ’s Beach Bar & Restaurant

Hey Guys!!

This past Sunday took us a little south of the island in search of some good food.
The first place we went to was closed, so we quickly decided on a second option which was relatively close by. It also happened to be my first time being at this restaurant.

The general atmosphere was very relaxing and more than expected when entering first. There’s a wide variety of seating available and we opted for upstairs which had the open view of the sea.

In My Kitchen // Summer Smoothie

Ya’ll know what time it is by now!

SUMMER!!!

It also happens to be mango season, so you know what’s one of the main ingredients in this smoothie.

This was really a quick fix since I was in the mood for something to “cool me down”. We also have an abundance of mangoes because we have a tree in our yard.

My sister and I usually create milkshakes with ice-cream, ice, milk and voila. However, tonight I decided to spice things up.

Ingredients:

Mangoes
Coconut Ice-cream
Milk
Ice

It’s really that simple. Toss everything into the blender and the result is a nice cool-me-down drink. Who knew coconut and mango made such a great combination?

BTW – next weekend happens to be a Mango Festival, maybe I’ll drop by and share some of it with you guys!

  • *seasonings for meat*
  • Chicken Breast
  • Steak
  • Sweet Pepper
  • Onion
  • Garlic
  • Shredded Cheese
  • Lettuce

In My Kitchen // Creamy Chicken Meatballs

Hey Guys!!

Hope you had a great week, but guess what….
I’m finally back in the kitchen!

This meal was inspired by my craving for creamy pasta and my wants for something different to eat. If you checked out my other food related posts (Meatballs Take 2 , A Twist on “Meatballs”) you’ll see that meatballs aren’t new to me. Therefore I decided instead of a marinara sauce I was going to try a creamy cheesy sauce. This time I also popped my meatballs into the oven instead of frying them *but I think I left them a little bit too long, or the texture is just different since it’s chicken.*

Power Breakfast Recipe

Good Morning Guys!!

Some days are so hectic that you don’t have time to grab breakfast or maybe you’re just not in the mood for solid food. Well here’s a recipe for one of my favorite breakfast shakes; this was go-to back in college when I had to dash out of the house.

It’s simple and easy to make. Basically putting all the ingredients into the blender and voila! This shake is also filled with protein, so not only will it help you feel energized but it would (should) keep you filled till lunch.

Snackin’ // Cinnamon Roll Waffles

Hey Guys!!

What are you snackin’ on today?

Cinnamon rolls are always a go-to especially Pillsbury Cinnamon Rolls; all you have to do is pop open the can, separate the rolls and pop ’em in the oven.

Well, I decided to do something a little different that I may have seen on Pinterest. Instead of popping the rolls into the oven I placed them on my waffle maker and voila!

Yum! This is an awesome quick snack if you feel for something sweet or maybe a dessert later on in the night.

Have you tried to cook anything else in a waffle maker?
I did (here) Lol

Local Food // Caribbean Style

“Local” – relating or restricted to a particular area or one’s neighborhood

For this week’s Daily Post Photo Challenge was ‘Local’; they asked us to show what home means to us, and where our hearts lay. The first thing I could think of when I heard the word ‘local’ was FOOD.

Food in the Caribbean is VERY different to that of America and other places around the world. Of course each island has something different that they specialize in, however regionally we carry almost the same products.

As mentioned in a previous post (In my Kitchen // Roast Whole Chicken ) Sunday dinners are usually a big thing, but so is breakfast.

Let’s just say Sundays are for plenty cooking.
