It’s fair to say by now that you guys should all know that I love coconuts; I use the oil for frying, salad dressings, the milk for marinades, sauces & curries. It’s my go-to for hair care and I lovingly massage it into my scalp 2-3 times a week. Fresh from the shower and whenever I … More Going Coconuts Under a Red Sky !

I love carbs. There, I said it. If I could eat rice, bread and pasta all day and smother it in butter and cheese (and bacon), I would be a happy, happy girl. Keeping this in mind, I savour each encounter with these beautiful dishes and do my best to ensure that when I do … More butternut squash gnocchi with sage brown butter and toasted walnuts
Over the following two days, we would take transportation via canoe to explore the islands surrounding Bocas del Toro and there are hundreds of them. As we would set out and our boat captains navigated their way through the maze of tiny islands, we were consumed by the untamed beauty of everything around us, the … More Chasing Panama – Cayo Zapatillas & Red Frog Beach
