TGIF to Sal’s Sweets Baking the World a Better Place!

TGIF and #fbf to #Sugataster Randy and I indulging in the unique variety of Sal’s Sweets delights.

From practicing Financial Services in Estonia and Florida to settling back home in Jamaica and practicing her passion, Sal Mahtani brings out the flavours she has grown up with that complement each other so well. She is of Indian heritage and has family in the Phillipines, where she has visited as well as countries in Europe. Being well travelled, she has demonstrated a knack for playing with different flavours, for anything but an average result.

This home-taught Baker started out baking Lemon Rosemary Scones for herself and friends while living in Florida. Go figure!

In a currently saturated field of Bakers especially during the pandemic, Sal does not do the classic Cookies, Cupcakes, Banana Bread or Cinnamon Rolls. It’s innate for her to do spin offs.

Russian Tea Cookies
Peanut Butter Blossoms
Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies
Baklava with a twist!
Baklava with a twist! (Shortbread crust, layered with nuts, baked with filo dough on top and drizzled with pumpkin spice syrup!)
Carrot Cake with a twist! Carrot Cake loaf topped off with with roasted walnuts, cranberries and spiced cream cheese frosting!

Her signature Cookies are Russian Tea Cookies that melt in your mouth, using her Mom’s recipe that she has recreated to offer vegans too. Her Pumpkin Spice Chocolate Chip Cookies with local Chocollor Chocolate, Earl Grey Lavendar Cookies and atypical Baklava are divine. A twist on the classic Baklava, using a shortbread crust, layered with nuts, baked with filo dough on top and drizzled with pumpkin spice syrup! Excellent texture for travel, whether it’s you or Sal! She frequently comes to Kingston on weekends from Ocho Rios for pick up and can facilitate FREE Delivery. Her products are now in the new Ciao Bella Café and soon to be in Lala’s Nutmeg in Ocho Rios!

Looking forward to Sal’s Sweets’  Summer spin offs! A little birdie told me I can look out for Lychee Lavendar, Chai and Lemon Basil flavours with Popsicles in the mix!

Happy Hump Day! I love Matcha and the Matcha Chiller from Rituals Coffee House!

Matcha is specially grown green tea leaves, finely grounded into a nutrient rich powder. It has caffeine properties to give you a boost of energy without the jitters.

My Matcha Chiller with Almond milk was fantastic along with my yummy, tender Mexican Grilled Chicken Sandwich last Saturday for Lunch.

If you can’t have caffeine, try the Matcha Chiller at Rituals Coffee House in Village Plaza!

If not, Coffee Roasters Jamaica will give you the dose of caffeine you need.

Enjoy a cup of Matcha or Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee today to get you through to the end of the week!

Whether it is Coffee Roasters Jamaica (Ig:@coffeeroastersjamaica), Moy Hall Estate Coffee (Ig:@moyhallcoffee), Stoneleigh Coffee (Ig:  @stoneleigh.coffee), Cafe Blue (Ig: @cafeblueja) or Jablum Coffee (Ig:  @jablumcoffee), you name it! Drink Jamaica Blue Mountain Coffee! Sip the Greatness.

For the Love of Matcha and For the Love of Coffee!

#tbt to my Healthy Jerk Chicken Hawaiian Salad from PRESS Cafe!

Last week, I had my daily quota of greens and a serving of protein with PRESS Cafe’s tasty Jerk Chicken Hawaiian Salad for J$1100 with jerk chicken, romaine lettuce, corn, pineapples, tomatoes, red & yellow bell peppers, onions. I opted for no sauce, but they have the healthy option of an olive oil based vinaigrette instead of salad dressing.

I also had the Firm-end Power Punch (Lite) along with it for J$850 with almonds, peanuts, flax seeds, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raisins, banana, oats and almond milk. *I removed the peanut butter, but it was still full of fibre and delish, completing my meal, leaving me fully satisfied.

Let’s get you to a Happier, Fitter and Healthier YOU!
