Welcome to the blog! I’m Mikaela, an island girl obsessed with finding the best eats and drinks. Here, you will find Bermuda restaurant recommendations, food reviews when I travel, easy, flavour-packed recipes and wine recommendations. 

  • Crispy Air Fryer Fries + Spicy Aioli

    I don’t know about you, but I’m a French fry girl. You can usually find me ordering them wherever I go unless I’m really watching what I eat. There’s just something about fried potatoes that makes me incredibly happy. I prefer hand cut fries but sometimes frozen fries are just as good. When I’m at home, I never fry anything so I had to find a way to make fries…

  • Easy Tomato Sauce

    I was going to write a long post about my love for pasta and how much I love sauces and pizza and all that. But I stopped myself because it’s not that serious! But for real, I love pasta and I love a good pasta sauce. Growing up, my mom used to make spaghetti all the time but she would put big chunks of onions, peppers and mushrooms, all of…

  • What I Eat To Lose Fat

    I get asked all the time what I typically eat in a day. I think people always see me eating out or attending various food related events and wonder how I manage to stay healthy. So, I figured I would write a post about it so that I can fully explain what a typical day of meal entails for me. With that said, it’s important to note that I try…

  • Three Bean Veggie Chili

    In these cooler months, I love comforting meals that are delicious and healthy. Chili is always at the top of that list. My mom always made chili when I was growing up and she still makes it to this day. It’s the best chili I’ve ever had. When I became an adult, I tried to make my own dishes that were reminiscent of what she made. But I was a…

  • The BEST Scones Ever

    Ok let’s just get this out the way. I LOVE scones like OMG love scones. Maybe it’s the British/Bermudian thing or maybe it’s just that quick breads are really delicious. Either way, I love scones. When I go to grab a coffee, I always want a scone and I often go for high tea and ask for extra scones cuz scones are the best. But what I didn’t realize was…

  • Easy Breakfast Potatoes

    Breakfast potatoes are seriously my favourite thing to eat for breakfast. As a matter of fact, potatoes are my favourite thing to eat period my breakfast potatoes are up there. Any time I order breakfast, you can be sure there’s a side of potatoes on the plate. But the thing is, I’m very particular about my breakfast potatoes. I don’t want them to be greasy but I do want them…

  • Coconut Chickpea Curry + Rice

    Hands up if you love curry! That’s my arm over there waving manically. I used to order various Indian curries when I ate meat, mainly Chicken Tikka Masala and Balti dishes. And then I was introduced to Thai curries and Green Curry became my fave, with chicken of course. Growing up in Bermuda mean Caribbean style Curry Chicken, which of course is very different from the Indian and Thai curries.…

  • Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies

    Valentines Day is tomorrow! Are you a fan or do you hate it?! I’ve never been crazy about Valentines Day to be honest. I find it to be an overpriced holiday for the most part. But, I’ll never turn down decadent chocolates or a beautiful bouquet of flowers, not roses – too cliché. I also enjoy a lovely dinner but nothing super fancy because then the expectations are too high.…

  • Spiced Butternut Squash Soup

    Even though I love to cook, I’m pretty lazy these days. I like my meals to be done quickly so that I can get to my favourite thing ever – EATING! But just because I like quick meals doesn’t mean I don’t want a ton of flavour. These days, I need my meals to be full of flavour but also healthy. I don’t ever want to skimp on flavour just…

  • How to have the BEST Restaurant Weeks Experience in Bermuda

    It’s Restaurant Weeks here in Bermuda and I couldn’t be more excited! Seriously RW is my favourite time of year because I can eat amazing meals in fabulous restaurants for cheap. Well, not cheap, but at a lower cost. It’s basically the perfect way to still eat out and stay on your budget this year because of course you set a goal to spend less and save more in 2019.…
