Sauce “TiMalice”

Last Sunday I was hosting a dinner at my apartment with some friends. And as I was passing the rice to one of them, he looked at me and  nicely asked : “Any sauce?” I couldn’t help but burst out laughing because it was an oh-so-typical Haitian question that is often asked at a dinnerContinue reading “Sauce “TiMalice””

Kibbeh (Kibi)

I was only 17 or so when I first tried Kibbeh (Prounounced ” Kee-bee”  in French and Creole) .  Every time I eat it, it reminds me of a dear friend of mine who used to be a big fan of it. He unfortunately passed away in the earthquake in 2010. Today, I cooked thisContinue reading “Kibbeh (Kibi)”

Beignets au Poulet (Chicken Fritters)

So I had to fix it a little to my tasteContinue reading “Beignets au Poulet (Chicken Fritters)”

Tarte a l’ oignon (Onion pie)

” Com’on Nathalie! Knead it like a woman! ” I can remember my mother’s voice repeatedly yelling at me as I was trying to make a pie crust! ” Met fanm sou ou!” (which literally means ” Put a woman on you” -_- ) . It’s a term that is often used by mature women in myContinue reading “Tarte a l’ oignon (Onion pie)”

Saumon et salade d’avocat

You don’t need to lose weight, you look so perfect! -_- Seriously? I really get tired of hearing that. Maybe I want to lose some fat weight and gain muscle weight. Or maybe I just want to eat healthy? This morning, I woke up feeling tired of wanting to do certain things and just sittingContinue reading “Saumon et salade d’avocat”
