Belizean Stew Chicken- the White Gyal Way

Okay, so it’s been my goal since we moved to Belize to improve my cooking skills in general but to learn to cook like a local specifically.  I want to be proficient at (I don’t expect to master the local culinary skills, I know I’ll never through a tortilla like a Maya) cooking regional fair because it’s 1) delicious and fresh 2) much more affordable!  Imported ingredients can be pricey! Our first year here I made a friend at the Crossfit gym in San Pedro- Bella is a…

Do you know the Granola Man?

Muffin man?  No, the granola guy!  One of the friendly faces you should know, Mr. Evan, aka the granola man.  You can find Evan roaming the village several days a week carrying his box and bags of homemade, healthy, all-natural granola products for sale. My super picky eater, Mitch, has literally gone days with his only solid food being Evan’s granola bars.  He has loose granola for cereal and to sprinkle on yogurt as well as individually wrapped bars.  Flavors include Almond, Vanilla, Strawberry, and Mitch’s favorite: Chocolate…
