Pepper is amazing!

I never really thought much about pepper. Using pepper just about every day is a habit for my husband and I.  In every meal that we cook we use pepper. We also put some on our eggs and on our avo. Pepper was also a spice that I grew up with back home, it was… Continue reading Pepper is amazing!


All about cloves

Nope, I don't mean cloves of garlic. When I think of cloves, three things come to mind. How strange they look, chicken and chai tea. When I was growing up, there were a few times that my Ouma stuck a few cloves into the chicken that she was cooking. I remember not quite liking the… Continue reading All about cloves


Some Ginger anyone?

I have a bit of a love-hate relationship with ginger. Ginger reminds me of a concoction my Ouma used to give me when I got a cold- hot water, honey or sugar, and Jamaican ginger. I am convinced to this day that aside from its medicinal properties, its main function was to scare away colds… Continue reading Some Ginger anyone?



So I decided to write about cardamom. I then discovered that all I know about it is that it tastes really nice in chai tea and chai latte. Luckily there are a lot of websites out there that have a lot of information about cardamom. I have included the websites that I looked at in… Continue reading Cardamom!


Cinnamon- Yummy!

Hi guys So I am back from a break. I didn't go on holiday,  but besides going to work, church, seeing friends and watching way too many episodes of series, you name it, The Blacklist, Girl Boss, Grimm, and I finally finished House...

Are you a teabag, a boiled egg, or a carrot?

This last Sunday, I had the misfortune of being a victim of an attempted hijacking. I wasn't hurt and nothing was taken, but I was very rattled. My brain in these kinds of situations reacts so slowly, and then zones in on only what it needs to do to survive. In this case, I screamed… Continue reading Are you a teabag, a boiled egg, or a carrot?


Why are you lacking confidence?

Over the last few weeks I have been noticing things about my behaviour, other people's behaviour, reading various stories and articles, and watching things that have gotten me thinking. Here we are, each and every one of us, with the ability to make choices, with our gifts and talents, skills, and in the eye of… Continue reading Why are you lacking confidence?


Happy 2017!

Hi everyone, and a very delayed Happy New Year 🙂 I took some time off blogging, things at work were a little crazy, I work part time for an e-commerce company and worked full time due to things being super hectic there. Things are still crazy, but I am back to concentrating on my career… Continue reading Happy 2017!


Red meat- good or bad?

I will admit that I really, really like red meat. I do eat more chicken and fish, but for some reason I also really like beef mince, my husband hates it. I also like steak and lamb chops, though because of the price, I eat these a lot less of these. But if you are… Continue reading Red meat- good or bad?

The Reawakening of Dad

man-641691When you were younger you were always running, riding a bike, swimming, walking and playing sports with my friends. Then time started to fly by and soon you were married with kids or working long hours. You were busy and weren’t dedicating any time to take care of your body. Well that is if you were like me and let things slide. Then before you knew it you were struggling to open a jar of pickles, running a short distance, or any type of exercise.

For me, I had always looked thin but for the first time I realized I was now obese with the other 33 percent of the US’s population. I didn’t see it happening but it sneaked up on me and if I think about it, I had become what I ate. My neck was gelatinous, my thighs had stretch marks, and my belt had a few…
