I am leaving tomorrow for a week away with family, a week in South Dakota (Yes, that’s not a typo). As I prepare to leave, a feeling of guilty swept over me…I haven’t blogged in a week. The chances of me blogging while I’m away are nil, zip, zilch…not going to happen! While I enjoy a week with my nieces and nephews ( I have a brand new 2 week old nephew I’m going to meet for the first time) I leave you a recipe that I’ve wanted to post for the last year! Yes, I have 2 posts about this recipe that were never published. I will update later with more information about Sorrel, but for now, just a recipe!

Please come back with info on sorrel! Sounds quite refreshing.
I accidentally stumbled on your website looking for a recipe for metemgee, and I’m glued! I joined the military and have been far away from home for way too long. Now I have kids of my own, I find myself struggling to fight off fast food and replace it with some good Guyanese food. Thank you so much!
Oh how i wish we could all be together for christmas again :(. And i wish i could get sorrel here.
Stumbled across your Instagram which led me to your website. I’ve been trying to make various guyanaese dishes on my own and they’ve all been an epic fail. Time to follow some recipes 🤣, happy I found your site.
Awesome! Glad you’re here!
