I’m back with a delicious recipe,chocolate banana bread ! I have made several banana breads in the past and this one was by far the most moist and delicious. I didn’t say gummy,I said moist. You know how it is, you whip op a batch of a proven banana bread recipe,didn’t over whip it, but it’s gummy. How did this happen ? I don’t know. I do know that this recipe is all you will need to be in perfect banana bread heaven.
This large loaf also makes a great gift to give to a loved one because it keeps perfectly moist when you warp it in saran wrap.
Where have I been you asked ? I have been working as a food photographer and finishing up my two upcoming books. My covers are now completed and I will unveil them very soon.
Life has been treating me very good lately. As I get older I’m realizing that this journey is more about me and not others. It’s about holding onto God and his word,listening to my own heart and loving myself more.
This is a self portrait that I took of myself. I think that it’s telling of my strive for honesty. Anyway enough of me and my revelation. Just enjoy the bread.
I always wanted to make a moist, delicious and flavorful banana bread. This bread is moist and a perfect example of a great bread recipe. Store in a Ziploc bag in the refrigerator for 2 days.

Hay guys, I am so happy that you’re reading my blog even if it’s just one person. I am currently still working on my cookbook. I have literally cooked my heart out. I have about twenty more recipes left to add. I cooked every popular Caribbean recipe and African recipe that you could think of. My herb potato roti came out tasting so good , it taste’s better than any other roti I have ever had. The channa filling also tastes spot on authentic. I challenged myself to even create a no fuss ingera bread to serve with three of my amazing meatless meat sauces. The bread has all of the qualities of traditional ingera bread without being time consuming. I even perfected my cassava pone recipe that tastes just like the traditional one I grew up eating in Barbados. I have to say that I challenged myself with this book. I wanted to create a book that was filled with easy to find ingredients and straightforward recipes.
Even though my book is Caribbean and African I still wanted it to be accessible and not annoying. There’s nothing I loath more than a book with thirty ingredients for each recipe,those are the books that you hardly cook from. I mean they look good on the outside but collect dust. I want my book to be different and it is. I have been vegan for nine years now and have amassed a great wealth of knowledge that I have crammed into the book.
I have grown so much in my personal life and my finances couldn’t be better to be frank. However I am going to push through and I have a strong feeling about 2017.
I have this fiery spirit that has risen up inside of me. A confidence that has come from beating on my craft and emerging as someone who is truly a talented vegan chef.
I have cooked so much. I have a video to show a table full of food that I cooked in one night for the cookbook. However I will show you guys after it’s launched.
Please keep praying for me if your heart is sincere. It’s not easy following your passion.
Now onto today’s post. I have wanted to cook broccoli rice for so long. I decided to mix it with cauliflower rice and It came out the bomb. Do people still say bomb ? Anyway.
I am currently working on the healthy but off the charts delicious part of my book and I came up with this yummy recipe. It’s really good and you will not regret making it. It’s a nice rice alternative and very filling.
Yes people challah done went to Barbados and switched up on us. Instead of being soft and fluffy all the way through . “He’s” now flaky on the outside,I guess it was all that sun that he soaked up while relaxing on Browne’s Beach. Don’t worry “he’s” still nice and soft on the inside however he got a little nutty. Challah stuffed himself with coconut and walnuts and topped if all off with cinnamon and nutmeg. He told me that he doesn’t want to be judged,just enjoyed with dairy free milk or a cup of tea.
Making this bread was fun and they’re is always something very rewarding about making bread. It makes you feel like a proud mama at the end.
Enjoy and share with friends. A homeless person would appreciate this bread as well. I mean they would feel the love coming from it with every bite.
Fish cakes are a delicious appetizer that is served at most parties in Barbados. We also enjoy them at home as an everyday snack.
I decided to create them without the fish and they turned out great. The scallions,thyme and habanero pepper livens them up. Also making the batter thicker appeared to keep them from being super oily.
The next time I make these I am going to add a mashed potato to the batter.
Fry up a batch for your next party.
Crispy on the out side
Soft on the inside
