  • For this dip, I wanted to have something refreshing with a crunch to top it off. But I also wanted something different and unexpected. For this reason, I made my star ingredient be Okra to top it off. Here in #Haiti we call it Kalalou.

So here is my new recipe for Cream Cheese Dip with Crispy Kalalou!

Hope you enjoy! Because I definitely did. I may adopt these crispy okras to top more dishes after all, like salads, burgers, tacos, and more.

There are some people you’d like to have over for diner every night. Those special someones that you only get to see once in a blue moon, but that radiate an eternal glow of love and light onto you and your family by their simple presence. For those people, you want to cook something special. Something that feels like a thank you gift from you to them for greeting you with their presence.

Something like Djondjon Israeli couscous with lemon butter scallops and crispy sage. That sounds just delicious and as delicate and sophisticated as that special someone.

  • CHOCOLATE MANBA BANANA ENÈJI BALLS
.
I found out tonight that today is the World's Cocoa and Chocolate Day! 🙊 Yay!!! 🍫 A little late, yes, but better late than never. I believe this recipe post is perfect for the occasion. These Chocolate Manba Banana Enèji Balls, are just delicious.

You see the word Enèji in creole means energy (shout out to @niska on this track 😂 ). And that's exactly what these are. Energy balls!

We all love chocolate… so here's reason number #1 to indulge in these. Number two: we are, or know too well, a few super moms out there who are juggling work, life and family, and can use one of these "pump you up" snacks to boost themselves up.

So go ahead, share this recipe with them. (Recipe on the blog 👆 Link in bio)

  • FRENCH PEAS HUMMUS
.
Sweet peas here are called “Pois France” which translates to “French peas.” Why? Not too sure. But I wouldn’t be surprised that this local appellation comes from the fact that during French colonization, these peas were brought to the island by the French, and thus were known from that point on as “Pois France.” They are very common in our local cuisine, and are mostly prepared into a delicious sauce which is eaten with rice. A local version of rice and beans. Absolutely delicious! One of my favorite bean sauces actually.

So why not try to remix these and replace the common chick peas, with sweet peas in my hummus.

Turns out, it was a genius idea. Absolutely delicious!

Try it and you just may adopt it. This easy recipe will also please my gluten free and vegan friends out there.

  • No better way to honor my great childhood memories and these beautiful flowers, but with a celebration of love through this boozy hibiscus tea three tier cake recipe.
.
The subtle hibiscus tea flavors mixed with hints of lime, boozed up with a kick of delicious Hibiscus Liqueur, make this cake quite unique and heavenly delicious. And I like to think it looks pretty too with all those red hibiscus flowers parading on top. 🌺 Wouldn’t you agree?

  • Escargots & Mushrooms au beurre d'ail 🐌 .
If you’ve never had snails, be curious. Be epi-curious. Always.
.
Life is a collection of moments, make sure to collect the best of them. Full flavors. Bright colors. Beautiful sounds. Unforgettable aromas. Irreplacable family. Untradable friends. Unquenchable curiosity. And insatiable quests for knowledge.
.
When my grandmother used to make these, it meant a full day of work. She spent time cleaning and prepping the fresh snails. We spent hours running around and searching for them in the garden of our family vacation house in the hilltops of Kenscoff. Finding them wasn't always easy. And a good load was necessary to fulfill our adventurous palates.

Creole garlic marinade

Known in Haiti as “epis” in Creole, word for “épices” in French, or spices in English, this marinade finds itself in most of our recipes, if not all. The recipe varies from region to region and cook to cook, but it typically contains garlic, onions, peppers and various herbs. Haitian cooks use it to make rice and beans, to season meats and seafood, add it in soups and stews. In basically everything.


I myself, always have a jar in the fridge, as it is an easy way to start any recipe, and an easy go-to ingredient when in need for flavor.

This paste like seasoning base is perfect in many dishes and as easy to make, as it is to use. All you will need are fresh simple ingredients, a blender or mixer, and a jar for storage.

I personally don’t add salt or salty seasonings because I prefer to flavor each dish differently every time depending on the recipe. This allows for each dish to have its own flavors, rather than all tasting of the same spices.

A tablespoon here and there, and you will quickly realize that you cannot live without it in your fridge.

Haiti Bites Creole Garlic Marinade

Even just a few spices or ethnic condiments that you can keep in your pantry can turn your mundane dishes into a culinary masterpiece.
— Marcus Samuelsson


INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 cup Parsley, fresh
  2. 1 cup Cilantro, fresh
  3. 1 tbsp Thyme, fresh
  4. 1/2 cup Garlic cloves
  5. 1 Onion
  6. 1 Green pepper
  7. 1/2 cup Leaks or scallions
  8. 2 tbsp Apple cider vinegar
  9. 1/4 cup extra virgin Olive oil
  10. 1 tsp sugar

In your food processor or blender, add all the ingredients.

Bring to a mix until it reaches a smooth paste like texture.

Store in a jar in the fridge for up to 6 months (I promise you will finish it way quicker than that).
