Nothing but Smiles when Sear 274 Caters at Your Home!


#tbt to Sear 274 (Instagram: @sear274) catering at the home of Suga Tasters, Ashleigh and Tennyson Arnold!

What a Charcuterie Board! Love them.

Suga Tasters also enjoyed Thai Seafood green curry with Caribbean spiny Lobster, Shrimp and Crab with spicy notes to elevate the dish and more.

It wouldn’t be a complete experience without Sear 274 Dessert!

Perfection is the only word that the Arnolds could use to describe their Sear 274 feast. Bravo πŸ‘πŸΎ

#tbt to this Shrimp Surf & Turf from The Neptune’s at Beaches Resorts, Ocho Rios !

The Neptune’s Shrimp Surf & Turf with Chargrilled Boston cut Striploin Steak, Shrimp Skewer, mashed potatoes, sautΓ©ed vegetables and garlic butter was divine! Tender, juicy and well seasoned. Kudos to Chef Viv!

Dinner was spectacular from the start with their Seafood Salad, Assorted Meze including Octopus, Prawns and more, Ceviche, the mains with Surf & Turf, Lamb, Swordfish Steak, Pastas and more, topped off with Baklava and Ice Cream for the finale. My family cleaned up!

The Neptune’s at Beaches Resorts
always delivers! Especially when they used to have booths at various festivals and events.

They maintained great service when the hotel was fully booked and understaffed. Bravo.

Suga’s Breakdown

It’s always a pleasure to visit Harmony Hall, that dates backs to the 19th century, now the home of Summerhouse.

Exquisite outdoor dining with superior service and delectable courses that I enjoyed with my husband, Randy, friends and Suga Tasters, Ashleigh and Tennyson Arnold and Suga Baby, Blaire Arnold.

I could almost say our culinary experience was excellent from start to finish, but with fair warning, disappointing Dessert loomed the air. Bread Pudding is usually a common, highly anticipated request by us Jamaicans, where the calories are worth it. When ordered with a side of their dairy-free ice cream, the ice cream didn’t help it. It was dry and left unfinished. The other Dessert options weren’t satisfying either and sometimes this may leave a lasting impression, but definitely not this time. It’s early days, with many naturally talented bakers emerging during Covid. They should be able to find a superb Pastry Chef.

The Appetizers and Starch dishes were large enough to share, the Coal-Fired Proteins were divine and we had a few Cocktails. The Strawberry Bellini was on pointπŸ‘ŒπŸΎ. Executive Chef Dennis McIntosh paid us a visit for feedback and he was lauded.

We enjoyed scrumptious Saltfish Fritters with a spicy dipping sauce, mouth-watering cheesy Callaloo dip with Crostini, Curried Ackee Wontons, juicy Local Beef Tenderloin cooked as ordered, Sweet Potato Gnocchi, tasty Orzo, mixed Mushrooms, savory Fresh Grouper, delish Ripe Plantain Gratin and one of specials of the day, Grilled Tuna with a heavenly lemon & cilantro butter. Feast your eyes.

Quite a delightful experience and currently considered one of the Best places to Brunch on a Sunday. Kudos to Suzanne and Michelle Rousseau, Jamaican sisters who have found a new home, where it’s always Summer, providing us with the pleasure of embracing modern, heritage dining with a side of fresh, Caribbean Sea breeze.

#tbt to Cheat Day Fun with Strictly Cookies Ja !!!

The pictures practically say it all, giving some Photo credit to Strictly Cookies Ja because this is a Cookie Jar you dig into right away.

Each month Strictly Cookies Ja usually presents an exciting new flavour and I had the pleasure of doing back to back, March and April! The Berry Cookie Jar and the Duplex Cookie Jar … totally worth the calories!

The Berry Cookie Jar, probably one of Lauren’s best yet, had homemade strawberry & blueberry jams blended in withΒ  vanilla whipped cream and soft strawberry cookies with a freshly baked oatmeal Cinnamon streusel layered throughout for that added crunch of perfection.

The Duplex Cookie Jar had chocolate, chocolate chip & vanilla cookies, orange cream cheese filling with strawberry jam andΒ Pure Chocolate Company’s Cocoa nibs! Delish!

These Jars remind me of a delicious, addictive Strawberry Shortcake back in the day. If you know, You Know.

Follow & keep up with Strictly Cookies Ja on Instagram, @strictlycookiesja to see what’s in the May Jar. They get sold out fast! #EarnYourCarbs
