And Islay’s Breed Mix Is…

Islay of the Islands | Happily in Pursuit

When we adopted Islay more than 6 months ago, we debated long and hard about what her mix could be. When I first saw her, I thought for sure she was a German Shepherd puppy and would grow to 3 times her current size. But when the staff at the Cayman Islands Humane Society told […]

Local Love: Callaloo Breakfast Recipe

Easy Cayman Caribbean Callaloo Breakfast Recipe

One of the first things Ben and I did when we moved to Cayman was hit up the local farmers market where I was first introduced to callaloo. My favourite way to get to know somewhere new is by exploring the local flavours. As we walked the stalls browsing all the brightly coloured vegetables and […]
