Eco Eats: Thanksgiving Favourite Eats

  Thanksgiving Day is one of my favourite holidays! A wonderful time for friends and family to come together and make new memories during a fantastic dinner.  It is also a time for reflecting on what we are thankful for.  It’s always been a tradition at Thanksgiving Dinner and/or Friendsgiving for everyone sitting around the table to say one thing they are most thankful for.  Through all the good and bad that has happened this year, there is still so much to be thankful for.    When it comes to the holidays, the main attraction is always the dinner table garnished with chic decorations and tasty treats.  ’Tis the season to start whipping up in the kitchen some old fashioned favourite holiday dishes.  Here are some of our favourite Thanksgiving side dishes, drinks and desserts.  Whenever possible, support local.  Some local favourites making their way to our Thanksgiving Dinner are Coconut Marshmallows from Powder Monkey Gourmet Treats and Cayman Thanksgiving Tea from Tea Time in Cayman  Blood Orange & Cranberry Sauce    Ingredients: 1 bag …

Got Eggs? Local. Organic. Sustainable.

For everyone who loves omelets, cakes and other goodies that are made with love and eggs then you will be ecstatic to know that you can find locally farmed eggs that are both delicious and affordable. Brothers, Shanan and Pasmore Harrison have a Cayman Egg Farm which is not-for-profit.  Any proceeds from egg purchases goes directly into feeding and maintaining the chickens as well as supporting Shanan’s ministry which teaches youth and adults how to cook.  Together, their hard work is a labor of love.  The chickens are specifically, layer fowls which means that they do not rely on a rooster to produce eggs.  The animals are cared for with love, and respect.
