Trying Something Different

You know how sometimes we get tired of eating a particular dish? or having it a particular way? Well, in this week's column, I offer 3 variations of two pies and a salad. The original versions of these dishes have already been tried, tested and proven to be successful. So why mess with them? Uh, because I can, because I want to and more importantly because I know you'll appreciate my tampering (lol) Click here to read the column.

Tamper # 1

Truth be told, the credit for this tampering goes to my sister-in-law as it was at her house that I first had it. I jazzed it up a little bit and am now making it public. Instead of using regular potatoes, use sweet-potatoes for a twist to this long-time favourite.

Macaroni and cheese make a great pie but how about trying macaroni, pumpkin & cheese pie? It's a great way to sneak veggies into your diet without loosing the taste of the original dish. And it's something different to bring to the table.

This is sweet potato pie, it's very different from the traditional North American sweet potato pie that's made and served around Thanksgiving as a dessert. This is a savory sweet potato pie with hints of sweetness. In parts of the Caribbean, it is served in many homes for Sunday lunch and on special occasions.

When I thought about this week's column and dishes, I had in mind that the holidays are fast approaching and we're always looking for ideas... I hope that three dishes offer some variation and inspiration. I know I plan to have them on my table.

Please do not hesitate to email me for the recipes.

Today is Eid-ul-Fitr, it marks the end of Ramadan, the month of fasting. This holiday is celebrated in Guyana and throughout the world in Muslim communities. Happy Eid-ul-Fitr to my multi-cultural family, friends and readers of this blog.
