Some favorites on Facebook…

Thanks to Darran from FB for posting these wondrous pix. So yummy!

Alas, it is finally here. The Beast is Back is finally up. Still working on making that code original though. 😉

Pork ‘n Beans!

Pork and Beans, the A+ version.

Hey peeps, to the left here is the A+ version of what would normally be just your average bowl of pork and beans.

But in this case, you’ll want to add some steamed white rice, lemon pepper, some onions, couple of Roma tomatoes and you’re good to go!

To give this dish a tad bit more color, you can also add two or three jalapenos (remove the seeds if it’s too spicy for you), and hominy.

There aren’t any rules. Btw, the new blog is on Tumblr…and the podcast show, oh! Up in a bit. Glee is on.

Hello from Saint Vincent!

Welcome to the Goodies from the Grenadines blog spot for baked goods and everything scrumptious in the Caribbean. My name is Anthony and I hope I can provide you with the same tasty and exceptional food I’ve been lucky to experience during my stay in Barbados, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines.

Here’s to excellent Caribbean cuisine and fantastic island fun!

As a side note, if you live in the Grenadines and, most importantly, Saint Vincent, please feel free to visit the bakery  (that my cousin Jhoanape Kennedy and her husband Randy Kennedy own) when you get the awesome opportunity to do so.

The bread is always fresh and warm, right out of the oven. Evenings and Saturdays are usually the busiest times for business but we stay open long after everybody else has closed down for the day.

My cousin and her husband run a great business and the whole area smells delicious once those ovens are running.

So stop by and say “hello” and share a bite to eat.
