About Me

Hey Hey Hey folks welcome to my blog!  If you are here for the first time, welcome my name is Martina and if you are returning welcome back!!!  I am a Trinidadian living on Tortola British Virgin Islands. I am so excited that my website is back online!  I am grateful!  I lost the first one which had the domain name WhaToCook.com.  Now the domain name for this one is WhaTooCook.com (this one has two ‘o’ after the letter ‘t’ instead of one).  As you can see its a work in progress.

You are probably wondering how I came up with this website name – WHATOOCOOK.  Well to be honest when my kids were much younger, their dad did most of the cooking in the house and frequently asked me for menu ideas.  He would ask me “What To Cook”?  Most times I did not have any recommendations and he would be angry with time.  Some times I would respond with by saying ‘FOOD’.  LOL!!

I first started this website with the intention to share the recipes that my mother taught me as a young woman.  She was a good cook but never used measurements and each time her breads and cakes came out perfect!!!  In sharing these recipes I have worked on including measurements so my viewers can achieve the same results.

As of 2019 my mother is close to 95 years old and her cooking techniques are not as they used to be.  I am so glad that I followed my inspiration to share her recipes, this way I can keep per memory alive.  She is in quite a few of my videos.  I am grateful.  She passed away January 17, 2020.

I am a foodie and enjoy trying and sharing other recipes that look interesting to me.  These recipes are mostly Caribbean based, simple and easy to prepare with a few ingredients.  

You will also find some vegan recipes on this site. I am not on a vegan diet but do enjoy a good vegan dish.  Remember you don’t have to be on a vegan diet to enjoy a good vegan dish.
