Aloo Gobi // Recipe

It's one of our favourite foods, but we didn't eat any Indian food for over five months when we arrived in Cayman. Five months! In February we finally took ourselves along to Sunset House and those first few mouthfuls of hot and spicy curry were a taste sensation. Oh curry, how I'd missed you. My… Continue reading Aloo Gobi // Recipe

Getting Back on Track

Aside from the tantrums, whining, food throwing, toy hurling, sibling wrestling and incontinence (them not me) I love being able to stay at home and experience my little people growing into full sized humans. Despite the aforementioned unfavourable qualities toddlers temporarily acquire, although exhausting, it is very, very rewarding.

Creamy Spring Pasta // Recipe

Whenever I go to make pasta for us, I always automatically reach for the tomatoes  to make the base sauce.

So delicious in fact… Continue reading Callaloo & Pine Nut Falafel Wraps // Recipe

The original recipe is vegan and from Bosh. I'm not vegan and love garlic so made a few… Continue reading Roast Tomato, Garlic & Red Pepper Soup // Recipe

Trinidad Doubles // Recipe

Living in Cayman means you are surrounded by not only beautiful clear blue Caribbean sea, but also dozens and dozens of different nationalities who bring with them their own food influences in both the restaurants and the supermarkets. Not long after we arrived in Cayman, Ste kept mentioning something called Doubles they were ordering at… Continue reading Trinidad Doubles // Recipe

Little Island Car

We already knew before we arrived in Cayman that we would need to buy a car. Our car at home was a lease, so because we didn't have the proceeds from a car sale our budget was small. A hire car had already been arranged for our first two weeks and we naively thought "two… Continue reading Little Island Car
