Hot Chocolate | Dairy and Sugar Free

When I lived in Baltimore, Md. I drank a cup of hot chocolate daily during the winter months. Now, after seeing this cup of chocolate delight by +Adrienne Urban it brought back some very fond winter memories.

That looks soo awesome!
And hearing your story, as well as seeing this cup of "awesome hot chocolate" reminds me also of the my childhood up in Massachusetts-whenever it would snow, in order to get all us kids to go outside & help my dad shovel the driveway and everything, my mom would tell us that if we did we'd always get some hot chocolate with marshmallows in it, PLUS a great grilled cheese n soup!!!
Lol…… thank you +Adrienne Urban & +Larry Fournillier for my memories!! :-):-)

Truth be told, I'm not a big SEO fan but this is hilarious! Thanks +Eli Fennell :)

I imagine there are more than a few brands whose SEO's are going through this right now.

5-Spice Honey Wings w/ Creamy Cilantro Sauce

These are just in time for a Friday afterwork lime. Thanks +Favorite Recipes!
Honeyed 5-Spice Wings with Creamy Cilantro Dip

For the wings:

9 whole chicken wings (~3 lbs)
1 tablespoon 5-spice powder
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons honey
2 teaspoons soy sauce
For the dip:
½ cup minced cilantro
½ cup sour cream
¼ cup light mayonnaise
juice from ½ lemon (~1.5 T)

Preheat the oven to 500 F.
If you have whole chicken wings, separate them at the joints into 3 sections, as pictured.  (For this recipe, you’ll only need the wings and drummettes.  I usually pop the wing tips the freezer and save them for future use in making chicken stock.)  Put the wings in a large bowl, and toss with the 5 spice, cayenne, and a generous sprinkling of salt.  Rub the spice mixture thoroughly onto each wing piece.
Place the chicken wings on baking sheet (lined with parchment paper or foil for easy cleanup).  Bake at 500 F for 20 minutes.
While the wings are baking, mix together all the dip ingredients and refrigerate.  Also, mix the honey and soy sauce together.  After the 20 minutes of baking, remove the wings from the oven and brush them with the honey-soy mixture. Put the wings back in the oven for another 5-10 minutes until they are crispy and oozing with honey glaze. Serve the wings hot with the chilled cilantro dip and a tall stack of napkins!

Strawberry Banana Smoothie Recipes

If you love #strawberries and #bananas, you will be delighted with this refreshing #smoothie. Not only is it mouthwatering delicious but it is extremely healthy. It is packed with potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants. The bananas give you an extra smooth texture coupled with fresh strawberries for a perfectly sweet flavor. A strawberry banana smoothie is the ideal drink for people on the go or a late afternoon snack.

Preparation Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes
Servings: 2


1 ¼ cup fresh strawberries; diced (frozen strawberries may be used)
2 ripe bananas, sliced (for extra thickness use frozen bananas)
¾ cup milk or substitute soy, rice, almond or coconut milk
½ cup ice cubes
Sprigs of mint


1. Prepare strawberries, wash thoroughly and dice into pieces
2. Cut bananas (fresh or frozen)into 1 inch slices
3. Place strawberries and bananas into a blender. Note: Reserve a few strawberries for garnish
4. Add ice cubes and choice of milk
5. Mix ingredients on low until well blended. If needed, stop the blender and stir mixture away from the sides and near the blade
6. Serve immediately. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a slice of strawberry. Goes well with cookies, a muffin or a favorite sandwich

Double Exposure
Cherry blossom in bloom and an outline of a woman portrait from +Kate Siobhan - brilliant work!

My next double exposure!

I posted in January that I needed to get out of the house more, so I made a decision I'd take a portrait of someone I love, and double expose it over a part of our fair city, to which that person feels connected. 

This exposure is my bestie, +Maryanne Wirkkanen  and the glorious cherry blossoms that fire off around our city for just a few weeks each spring. Maryanne and I share a love of sunshine and so the cherry blossoms to us are the city's signal that summer is coming, that winter is over, and that even though the rain will continue, there's hope. Maryanne also has a thing for flowers and nature, taking care of the earth, and being outside, so I could have done a whole whack of different 2nd exposures. 

I went with Cherry Blossoms because while Maryanne is an extraordinarily strong person, with firm and deep roots in her faith and in herself, and who has weathered all sorts of storms, much like the cherry blossom trees who stand tall all winter, she also is a gentle and kind soul who bursts into all sorts of blossoms and beauty. Also much like the cherry tree, she often blooms in warm weather :) 

And, like how a cherry blossom tree is actually native to Japan but has been planted here in Vancouver, Maryanne has a wanderer's heart that longs to be planted overseas. No matter where she is planted, there she shall bloom, this much I know.

Maryanne, My Cherry Tree.

Flavoring the World One Pot at a Time™
I'm extremely easy-going and have an insatiable appetite for knowledge.  I also have a burning passion for cooking and because of it, I currently own and operate a small private catering business - Island Cuisine in Trinidad & Tobago.

With the help of Google +'s premiere feature, Hangouts On Air(HOA), I'm able to spread my food knowledge and teach the rest of the world how to cook Caribbean cuisine.  Watch my HOA show Learning How To Cook Caribbean with Larry Fournillier where I present cooking with a twist.  I have also embarked on a new cooking HOA, Food Stories, where there is a story behind each dish.  

This is the premise of my Caribbean cooking show: Imagine me, in Trinidad, sitting in front of my computer and giving detailed cooking instructions to regular home-cooks who are thousands of miles away - definitely a novel approach in helping them create tasty Caribbean dishes.

You can catch all of my LIVE, past shows and get all of the temptingly delicious recipes here:

On November 5th, 2013,  I launched my Helpouts listings teaching individuals to cook tasty Caribbean cuisine.  Helpouts are on-on-one LIVE sessions where you invite me into your kitchen and I give you step by step instructions on cooking delicious Caribbean dishes.  Come and visit my LIVE Caribbean Cookbook Helpouts listings where I will teach you, great Caribbean cooking.

The amazing food at Johnny's All American Pizza is the best that I've eaten when I recently visited Colorado. Starting with the Spicy Sausage Spaghetti, it was absolutely divine and you definitely cannot go wrong with their "I can't get enough of" Cajun Shrimp pizza. Simply put, it's the best Italian food in Colorado - hands down!!
