Tasty Island Style Roasted Chicken Drumsticks.

Here's a quick and simple chicken dish I usually make during the cooler months when I can use the oven without overheating the entire house. During the summer months these marinated chicken pieces also make its way onto my outdoor grill. The key with this recipe is the spiced rub we marinate the chicken with for maximum Caribbean appeal. If you decide to rock these on your outdoor grill, I'd recommend cooking them on an indirect heat or you'll risk burning the spices and you won't like the outcome.

How To Make Coconut Oil At Home.

As a kid growing up on the islands coconut oil was a norm. Not just for cooking, but it was our choice of skin lotion / moisturizer and it was also part of our daily hair treatment. If memory servers me correct I think my my sisters also used it in making their version of cocoa butter and different types of fragrant soaps. During my most recent trip to the islands dad shared his technique for making coconut oil as it was passed on to him from my great grand parents.

Classic Caribbean Coconut Stewed Beef.

Here's a dish I usually reach for when I'm homesick for the Caribbean and I need something comforting. Served with rice, pasta, ground provisions, roasted breadfruit or even garlic mashed potatoes, this coconut stewed beef is simply heavenly. While we didn't eat a lot of beef when I was growing up on the islands (we didn't like the taste of fresh butchered beef), the occasional time mom would fix this for dinner. it was always a hit. Since we'll slowly braise this for some time, you can use a very cheap cut of beef if you wanted.
