Russian Style Beetroot Salad

This is super simple Russian style salad, I learned from a friend. Makes a fun side dish, or would be great on a picnic.

Thai inspired meatballs

This is the second time making this tasty dish and using ground chicken is new to be, but its lovely mild and tasty with the fresh herbs and ginger and garlic.

Red Sea Island Peas

On a recent trip to South Carolina, we visited Saint Helena Island the Gullah Geechi people live here and offer cultural tours, something that would be wonderful to do after covid. I am not an expert on these people but due to the isolated nature of the sea islands and the close knit community these people have maintained traditions, language and food from their West African roots after being enslaved and passed down land throughout the generations. 

I hope to return when the pandemic ends to take a tour and lean more also to eat in one of the local restaurants. I found these sea island peas in Publix and knew I wanted to try them, there is a recipe on the back. Food has an amazing power to connect us to others cultures and food history.
