Fish is abundant in the Caribbean! That's great because I love fish and when I decided to become a vegetarian, I was delighted that there was a class of vegetarians called Pesca-Ovo Vegetarians. So I am now a Pesca-Ovo Vegetarian and loving it! I get to enjoy fish, eggs and my other favourite food - cheese.

If you are West-Indian, a soup or broth of some kind is the known Saturday meal. Everyone knows that!

So I picked up some Tuna at the downtown Fish Market yesterday, cooked a finger-licking good fish broth (fish soup) and now I am sharing the recipe with you.

Salmon is one of the Omega-3 Fatty Acids containing fish, just like Tuna, Herring and Mackerel. If you didn’t already know, Omega-3 fatty Acids “reduce the risk of serious heart attack and cardiac arrest” and “they act as anti-inflammatories in cases of rheumatoid arthritis, ulcerous colitis and other autoimmune diseases” (Encyclopedia of Foods & Their Healing Power)

A delightful children’s story book about making Pumpkin Soup and a deeper underlying issue - the challenges and joys of friendship.

This book is suitable for children between the ages of 4 to 8 years and can be used by parents as a nice teaching tool when they accompany you in the kitchen. They learn to cook and they learn life lessons too. I couldn’t resist putting it here.
