Upside-down Peach Cobbler

Peach cobbler is one of my all-time favourite desserts! It’s fruity, sweet, and that spiced, golden crust gets me every time. This recipe is unique because the peach filling is poured on top of the batter which then bakes up to cover the peaches and bring the whole dessert together.

If you can get your hands on Tillamook ice cream, I strongly recommend you enjoy a slice of this cobbler with a scoop of their Vanilla Bean or Peaches & Cream flavour. It’s SO good.

Sweet Potato Cornbread

Cornbread is one of my favourite side dishes to bring to a family gathering or potluck. This delicious version is taken up a notch with the addition of sweet potato and spices. My favourite way to enjoy this decadent cornbread is with a glass of hot spiced Ethiopian tea before I dig into the main course.

Try it and let me know what you think!

An integral part of Tanzanian cuisine, Ndizi Nyama — Swahili for “bananas and meat” — is a simple yet savory dish that packs a ton of flavor.

Using the greenest unripe, starchy bananas, a distinctly East African technique, this dish features tender meat and coconut milk making Ndizi Nyama a great dish to serve on any occasion!
