Sweet Treats

Now That’s What I’m Cooking About!

As a Southern Belle with Caribbean roots, I describe my cooking style as "Caribbean Heat meets Southern Sweet"! I fell in love with cooking, growing up watching my grandmother make magic happen at every meal. I learned early on that a Chef with great food is like a DJ with an awesome playlist – we keep the party going!

Red Velvet Funnel CakesBy Chef JamikaJuneteenth is a celebration of the day enslaved people were officially freed from bondage on June 19, 1865. We celebrate and remember our ancestors and their sacrifice with red dishes symbolizing the bloodshed. These red velvet funnel cakes are a great addition for your Juneteenth festival or block party.
NEW ORLEANS BOURBON PRALINE CHEESECAKEBy Chef JamikaLooking for a dessert that will have you licking the front and the back of your fork, then this is it! Sometimes making cheesecake can be intimidating for some, but this easy recipe works every time and the sauce is so good, you could literally put it on anything and it would taste good. Happy Holidays!
Melty Chocolate Peppermint “Grinch” CookiesBy Chef JamikaThe Grinch is my favorite Christmas movie, so this is a bit of a tribute cookie. There are so many layers of flavors to this cookie. The vibrant green sugar cookie dough is wrapped around a chocolaty Nutella center that is so gooey and delicious when it melts. The top is crushed peppermint candy which gives flavor and a little crunch. So just like the Grinch, the outside has a rough exterior, but on the inside it’s all warm and soft. The perfect cookie to make for Santa (or you!)
Butter Rum CakeBy Chef JamikaMy grandmother was known for her rum cake, so I hope this does her recipe justice. The cake recipe is simple, and the fun comes pouring the buttered rum sauce all over the cake. This moment is Insta worth. Pout that sauce slow and steady because you want every delicious drop to go on that cake. As my grandmother used to say, “the more you eat the better the cake tastes!”
Honey Lavender Ice CreamBy Chef JamikaI love working with edible flowers like lavender. They add the perfect pop to just about anything.
Apple Pie Pull Apart BreadBy Chef JamikaThis delicious and sweet recipe is perfect for Easter breakfast or brunch. The whole family will love this cross between classic apple pie and comforting bread pudding.
Quick Strawberry CheesecakeBy Chef JamikaEvery pregnant woman has cravings and mine is strawberries! I whipped up these sweet cream cheese stuffed strawberries that are reminiscent to cheesecake and delicious. Strawberries are low in calories and sugar and high in fiber making them a great dessert choice.
