Muffins away from home.

It’s been a while since I have put any thoughts to paper (digitally😉). It’s been a strange sort of month. I haven’t been feeling super happy on most days as I am not at home. It’s not my home, and not being able to do my own stuff in my own space, especially baking, is…

Thinking of nothing.

Have you ever been glad to just have nothing to think of? I mean, you always have something to think of or about but, those special times when nothing is terribly important or urgent and you can just take a moment to… breathe. This morning is like that. Right now. In this moment. Here on…

Finally home!

Yes! Finally home. It is midsummer weekend and the weather is on its best behavior. I am still trying to track down my “delayed” luggage. Another story for another day. But! I finally did some baking. After fifteen plus months of being away, I finally got to bake something. Something small as it is only…

Soon, soon, soon!

So many “soons” are coming….well, soon. I am actually finally going home soon. Yup! Finally going home to summery Finland. I really love summer in Finland. But right now I just am on love with the fact that I am getting to go home. At least one of them 😁 Little back story…my husband and…

Just saying hi!

Sometimes, very rarely, I don’t have much to say. Most days I have plenty to say and I am always thinking (over-thinking)? But there are those days when I am just mellow. Nothing seems to bother me. I simply love those days. Those days where the world is spinning just fine on its axis. People…

Is love a crime?

Two days ago my nephew Noah called the police for me. For me! His aunt. I was shocked. Mind you, he is four years old and the phone he used was literally a handheld one…he was dialing on his hand. He was very polite as he asked the police officer to come to his home…

Trying to eat healthier

Not much on baking today or recipes, but more of a vent-y type conversation. Sooooo, I am trying to choose healthier options when I eat. But as usual with me, it’s an all or nothing type deal. I woke up one morning, back aching, and decided… ENOUGH. The snacks have GOT to go! I swoosh…

Maddingly good Hot Cross Buns

Hallo and Happy Easter! A fave of mine and a whole lot of people across this big, blue marble for this time is Hot Cross buns. In my humble opinion, a bun, a good, warm sticky bun is a treat that MUST be had on occasion. The ones where you lick your fingers from the…

How can a Trinidadian not like pepper?

Yup, it’s true. I do NOT like pepper. Actually more to the point, I cannot handle pepper. It gives me heartburn and terrible tummy cramps. I am talking hot sauce or pepper sauce as we refer to it in Trinidad. The really ironic part? I make it. Even more ironic-er is that my husband consumes…

Can you have a single Doubles?

Before you say yes, ask yourself…”Have I ever had a really good doubles?” Of course, this may be the second question you ask yourself. The first one for many a non Caribbean person, the first question may well be, “what on earth is (or are) a doubles?” Well, remembering this is only my blog and…
