He publishes Food Wishes Video Recipes, a wonderful food blogger and vlogger who likes to share a wide variety of recipes from A to Z, from African cuisine to Vegetables and Weekend Fillers. (No Video Category for the letters X, Y, and Z. But close enough!)

* Also sharing the links to two other blog posts. One post I'm sharing because in my opinion a party is not a party without great appetizers. The other post I'm sharing because I heart pomegranates and because I've never seen a non-red pomegranate. Have you?

Ever tried Slap Ya Mama seasonings?

Interesting name huh?. The way Walker & Sons advertise their food products is:

"Taste so good. Make you wanna slap ya mama!"

Say what??!! There is nothing in my entire life that I've eaten that ever made me want to slay my momma. But guess what? These are award-winning spice blends.

"Real Cajun Seasoning for Real Cajun Cooking."

How did I find out about these products? The Internet and Facebook, in particular, is a beautiful thing. This person saw my foodie website, Everyday Exotic Spices, which is advertised on Facebook via my business page, contacted me, and asked if they could send me samples. Of course, my response was “Yes!”
Received various products in a box delivered straight to my door. Tried them in different recipes and here's my reaction. Did I want to slap my momma? No. But I was ready go mano-y-mano with my spouse!
He wanted to keep it all to himself. I'm like: “Oh no! That ain't happening!!”

View the entire selection of Slap Ya Mama products.

Below are my favorites.

"Étouffée or etouffee (pronounced: [e.tu.fe] ay-TOO-fay) is a dish found in both Cajun and Creole cuisine typically served with shellfish over rice." (Source: Wikipedia)

Taste of the Islands - TV Cooking Show on PBS

Finally! Singing the Hallelujah chorus. AGAIN!

This time all the rejoicing is because of a food TV show.

We relocated to Austin, Texas in 1998 and my mate's first observation about living in this land-locked part of the state was that the city was missing a good Bahamian restaurant or at least some place that serves dishes that look like island food!

Once we got cable TV hooked up and got settled in, his next complaint was that the #foodie channels didn't have a good cooking show to teach people how to prepare common island meals.

In 2015, his prayer was finally been answered.







http://tastetheislandstv.com/chef-irie/Our public television station (PBS) airs a show called “Taste the Islands”. Chef Irie (real name Hugh Sinclair) lives in South Florida but is from Jamaica.

My mate is from The Bahamas.

Close enough!





 
We're both very happy.
For now.  :)
