Coconut Curry Crabs!! I found these beauties at a local store in the frozen section and I couldn’t resist trying them. Any true 🇹🇹 will admit to a weakness for Curry Crab 😁 or just about any Curry.

Dahl (Split Peas) & Rice with Sunflower Seed Sprouts & Avocado. Meals can be simple and easy to prepare and this was very simple and really easy. I cook Dahl in a pressure cooker, it’s one of those recipes that I don’t put a lot of effort into layering flavors, instead I add all the ingredients into the pressure cooker, turn on the stove and let the ingredients do their job. There are several ways of making a simple Dahl recipe, this one includes dahl , garlic, onions, culantro, roasted cumin, turmeric, salt, pepper & water. It took about 15 minutes once the pressure cooker got boiling for this recipe to be ready to serve. While the Dahl was cooking, I added rice, broth and salt to the rice cooker and both the Dahl and Rice were ready at about the same time. I added Avocado slices and Sunflower Seeds Sprouts to create a balanced meal and the contrast in textures and flavors all go really well together for a simple meal. #caribbean #foodporn #foodgasm #foodie #foodphotography #foods #foody #foodgasm #foodstagram #influencer #feedfeed #buzzfeedfood #foodpassion #eattherainbow #sunflower #seeds #avocado #healthyfood #healthyrecipes #foodpics #vegan #vegetarianfood #foodblogger #foodlover #foodoftheday #foodbeast #foodstyling #foodies #rice #dinner #lunch

Chicken Fried Rice topped with Sunflower Seeds Sprouts.
Leftovers give me an opportunity to get creative while being resourceful. Not only did I use leftovers from about 3 previous meals in this dish, I was able to use vegetables that would soon go bad. Fried Rice are usually quite forgiving and quick and easy even without leftovers. I quite often talk about my Grammy’s & my Dad’s Cooking, as they are most influential in how I currently cook, however my mother made the absolute best Chicken Fried Rice I have ever tasted. What ingredients do you like the most in your Fried Rice? #rice #friedrice #foodporn #food #foodie #foodphotography #foods #foody #foodstagram #foodies #foodstyling #foodbeast #foodgasm #foodblogger #foodlover #foodgasm #foodlover #healthyfood #foodoftheday #foodpic #foodpics #eattherainbow #caribbean #foodtruck #foodography #foodheaven #foodpassion #foodart #foodgawker #buzzfeedfood #influencer #feedfeed

This has been a week of Perfectly Imperfect, which presented me with the opportunity to allow myself some Grace. Easier said than done! I don’t consider myself to be a perfectionist however, there are some things I think worth executing perfectly (insert, every single recipe I 👩‍🍳). This week I had to allow myself some grace to forgive my imperfections in life and fails in the kitchen. It’s OK to make mistakes, we can learn from our mistakes in life, for me that includes mistakes made in the kitchen. What doesn’t break you, makes you stronger. Real friendships weather the test of time. Family doesn’t necessarily have to be those that are blood related, it’s the people you choose to love and those who love you. Home Is Where The Heart Is. I am a bit more than 4000 miles away from the Home where I was born and grew up🇹🇹, and about 3000 miles away from the city (Brooklyn, NY) that welcomed me into this country almost thirteen years ago and quickly became my Home, and still, I am Home for now. #upperleftusa 
After a week of intense emotions, feeling less than good about myself, I realized how I felt about me was affecting all my relationships. It is extremely difficult to unlearn things you have been taught to believe about yourself. I recognized that this week and I am making a deliberate effort to start the process of unlearning words and phases repeatedly said to me over a decade ago that was meant to hurt then and still hurts today. I got myself beautiful flowers, @wanderwoodfarm  fresh flowers make me feel 😁. Even though there were many recipe failures in the kitchen there’s always something to be learned. My idea for a beautiful Guava Sorrel Pepper Jelly didn’t come together as planned but now I have a delicious recipe for a Guava Sorrel Pepper Glaze (🙏Southern Exposure Family Farm for the beautiful Peppers). #buzzfeedfood #fruit #seattle #newyork #foodblogger #foodgasm #instagram #instagood #insta #instapic #instafood #foodie #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodstagram #foodlover #foodpics #hungry #eat #photooftheday #photography #photoshoot #flowerstagram #eattherainbow  #buzzfeast #islandlife #foodnetwork

Sancoche (vegetarian version). Soup perfect for any day but somehow even more perfect on a Saturday. Calypso Kitchen is not @bhamfarmersmkt today, instead we’re home enjoying some Sancoche. 😁
Earlier this week I taught a class @communityfoodcoop and we cooked Sancoche, I am always extremely happy to share recipes from my homeland Trinidad 🇹🇹, it is my little way of connecting cultures through food #foodambassador Anyway, the Sancoche was so good, I had to make it a second time 😁, and I did yesterday with some friends. Sancoche is a traditional soup popular throughout the Caribbean & Latin America. Variations of Sancoche in different countries are represented by ingredients that are available, with popular ingredients being meat, root vegetables, fresh herbs & dumplings. Both my Dad & Grammy has their own versions of Sancoche which I grew up eating, they both made it a little bit different, my Dad preferred using salted meat and my Grammy preferred using chicken in her recipe. They were both equally delicious.  It was painful trying to get a picture of all the good stuff in this bowl of Sancoche as most of the ingredients melt into a delicious thick gravy that is stick to your bones good. I tried to use a mix of fresh local ingredients and traditional ingredients in this Sancoche. Ingredients are as follows, Taro Root| Taro Leaves| Yuca/Cassava| Yam| Sweet Potato | Kale| Carrots| Bell Peppers| Celery| Green Bananas| Butternut Squash| Coconut Milk| Mushrooms| Ochro| Onions| Garlic| lots of fresh Herbs & dumplings made with Green Banana & Cassava Flour. #instagram #instagood #insta #instapic #cooking #instafood #foodie #chef #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodstagram #foodlover #foodpic #eatlocal #cheflife #dailyfoodfeed #foodblogger #foodgasm #eat #nomnom #nyc #brooklyn #eattherainbow #yummy #soup #hungry #foodie #grammys #foods

Sada Roti (Naan). The little victories in life count as much as the big ones. My thirteen year old self would be thrilled to know that I finally did learn to cook a proper Sada, quite unlike my first dozens of attempts 😜. My adult self is over the top happy that I was successful in making the entire Sada puff up without burning it or myself😀. As a kid, and up to this day my favorite way to eat Sada roti is hot of the tawa / hot stone with butter & cheese 😁. What’s your favorite foods to eat with Sada roti? #roti #naan #bread #foodblogger #foodgasm #instagram #instagood #insta #instapic #instafood #foodie #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodstagram #foodlover #foodpic #hungry #eat #buzzfeed #zagat #seattle #nyc #caribbean #eatlocal #farmersmarket #vegan #vegetarian #photooftheday #photography #foodie

Curry Shrimp & Potato. Comfort food on any day, food that warms the insides and puts a smile on your face 😀. This was one of the dishes that was on weekly rotation at my Grammy’s house during my childhood, and it seemed to be the perfect week for a little bit of comfort. Fall is definitely here in the #upperleftusa and warm/hot curries helps to keep the chill away.  Calypso Kitchen will be back @ the Bellingham Farmers Market after a two week hiatus, we’re looking forward to seeing all of our lovely customers. #foodblogger #foodgasm #instagram #instagood #insta #instapic #instafood #foodie #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodstagram #foodlover #foodpic #hungry #eat #buzzfeed #zagat #seattle #nyc #caribbean #eatlocal #farmersmarket #vegan #vegetarian #photooftheday #photography #foodie #eattherainbow #eatcalypsokitchen

SALSA! Thank you Roslyn@RabbitFieldsFarm for the beautiful fresh ingredients that went into making this salsa. The farmer vendors at the Bellingham Farmers Market have amazing fresh produce at the moment so you should definitely make it a priority to visit the market. I have been eyeing these gorgeous yellow heirloom tomatoes for some time now and finally got a chance to use them, the flavors did not disappoint, they taste as wonderful as they look.  Fresh tomatoes, purple onions, cilantro, garlic, peppers & lime juice with salt and black pepper is all that was needed for this fresh salsa. Perfect as a salad, side, dip or just about whatever way you want to serve it. Yum!! #salsa #foodblogger #foodgasm #instagram #instagood #insta #instapic #instafood #foodie #foodphotography #food #foodporn #foodstagram #foodlover #foodpic #hungry #eat #buzzfeed #zagat #seattle #nyc #caribbean #eatlocal #farmersmarket #vegan #vegetarian #photooftheday #photography

Escovitch Fish. Fried Fish served with a pickled condiment. I’ve been wanting to make this dish for a while and finally got the chance! Escovitch Fish is a popular Jamaican dish, however, I can safely say, many versions of this dish were served at my Grammy’s home during my childhood, and I am sure many other 🇹🇹 households. Fresh caught fish were delivered via the fishmonger on bicycles (yes folks, on the street where my Grammy lived the fishmonger delivered his goods on a bicycle tray) or open tray vans a few times weekly. The seafood offerings were always fresh, as the Bay was not far from Grammy’s house & the variety of fish available was never in short supply, carite, cavalli, ancho, king fish, white fish, red fish, cro cro, blue marlin, grouper, pampano, snapper...and the list goes on.. As a kid, I felt a bit queasy watching as the live seafood got prepared for meals, only a little bit though because I knew I would enjoy it when it was cooked and on my plate😁. Fresh fish were cleaned of scales and guts, heads were left on (the best part of the fish according to my dad 😋). The fish was washed with a bit of lime/lemon juice in a cold water bath for a minute then the water was drained and the fish was patted dry and ready for seasoning. As in most if not all 🇹🇹 households, seasoning is a bit more than salt & black pepper. My Grammy used a lohra & sil, which  are traditional stone implements used for the preparation of spices & herbs to prepare green seasoning for marinating the fresh fish. The fish was allowed to marinate for a bit, after which it is pan fried. The spicy pickles were made with hot peppers, onions, carrots, thyme, lemon juice and vinegar. The Escovitch Fish was served with a dish of Taro Root & Cassava.

Eggplant Fritter (Baiganee) with Curry Chickpeas, Calypso Kitchen’s Mango Chutney & Tamarind Sauce. It’s 🇹🇹 streetfood. Have it as an appetizer or a meal, it is  ridiculously GOOD!! I like my order with extra Peppersauce. This particular dish is a popular item on rotation at Calypso Kitchen, it features in our Cooking Classes, Pop-Up & Catering menu.
