Some recent eats and treats.

It "speaks" for itself. 😀

It’s been quite some time since I last posted an article on my frantic adventures in cooking and feasting. My responsibilities for charlieuniformtango and my relocation to Seattle among other pressing issues prevented me from doing so.

I intend to fix that immediately! Lol, I have amassed a extensive collection of foodie pix that will need to be touched up before they go live, especially since I have the most recent version of Photoshop again to bring more life and lighting to these dishes (it was either going to be Photoshop or a brand new camera).

But I won’t bore you with those minor details. When July rolls in, I hope to share with you a visual buffet of summer snacking compliments of watching episodes of Rachael Ray, Cupcake Wars, Chopped!, The Next Master Chef, Hell’s Kitchen, The Next Foodnetwork Star, Top Chef and Top Chef Masters.




Bajan Steamed Flying Fish.

Steamed Flying Fish and Coo-Coo by Anne-Marie Whittaker.

As Anne-Marie Whittaker mentions on CaribSeek Recipes, “Steamed Flying Fish and Coo-Coo is the national dish of Barbados. No visit to that island would be complete without a taste of this treat.”

I whole-heartedly agree. Although Bequia and Young Island (two of the many islands of St. Vincent and the Grenadines) aren’t exactly Barbadian, I had the pleasure of eating flying fish in both locations. Flying fish is a staple you will find in many dishes throughout the Caribbean.

Casuelitas Caribbean Cafe in Seattle…closed?

Well, it turns out that I’ll have to wait a little bit longer before I can showcase my coverage of the cassava cake-making process. Meanwhile, I noticed this disturbing headline attached to one of my most favorite Caribbean-style food restaurants in Seattle: CLOSED.

Casuelitas Caribbean Cafe is located in the heart of downtown. According to Yelp, Casuelitas shut its doors. All of the images in this post were taken by patrons and fans of the beloved venue. If Casuelitas did indeed close down, I’m guessing this must have happened somewhat recently in the past month or two.

But just to make sure, I’ll be making a phone call. I certainly hope that Casuelita’s hasn’t shuttered their doors. I’ll keep you updated on my findings.

Hello foodies and should-be-foodies; this Brochette de Poulet recipe reblog is critical in terms of enhancing your fine dining experience. I have had the blessed opportunity to feast on this dish while I was visiting family in the Philippines and please believe, it was glorious.

Nothing would be more tiresome than eating and drinking if God had not made them a pleasure as well as a necessity. ~Voltaire

Great news..

Great news. It looks like the family will be traveling down to the Caribbean this fall. Of course, I hope to be a member of the caravan. I’ll have to make sure this doesn’t interfere with my work hours.

Or maybe I can work from home?

Here are some pix of a dinner (Thai food) that ended badly (concerning conversation, not the food). Lol, will have to tell you more about that story in another post.

Table covered with Thai food: chicken curry and pad thai.
