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.

Mother In Law As A Condiment?

My first encounter with “Mother In Law” was about 7 years ago when we had some relatives here on vacation during that summer, from Trinidad. My aunt had a huge pot of pelau bubbling in the back yard (love cooking in the outdoors during the warm months) and my other aunt who was visiting, raved […]

Ground Provisions Exposed.

In this post I’ll attempt to explain what “Ground Provisions” are, the part it plays in Caribbean cuisine and a simple recipe for preparing everyday ground provisions. In previous recipes I’ve shared, I’ve commented on using ground provisions and over time I’ve come to realize that I had left my readers a bit confused when […]

Curry Bodi With Potato A Vegetarian Delight.

28 December 2010

If you were to look up the word “carnivore” in the dictionary, you may just see a pic of me with a huge smile licking my chops. Just about every meal I eat contains meat of some sort, but there are days when I feel “dirty inside” and must skip the meats altogether. Today is […]

I could never get used to this winter thing, no matter how long I’ve been calling this place home. The short days, constant overcast conditions (I’ve seen the sun 3 times so far this month and it’s already the 19th) and the bitter cold that seems to have arrived earlier than I expected. As I […]

11 December 2010

I’d like to make it clear that tough I may use the term “Trini” from time to time, it’s no intention to leave out my country folks from Tobago. This recipe is uniquely Trinbagonian, as with many of the recipes I share on this blog. I’m no fan of geera (Cumin) and I’ve only tried […]

Simple Chicken Liver And Gizzard.

27 November 2010

The majority of people I know are turned off by liver and when you mention chicken gizzards they have this look on their face as if they think I’m joking. People actually eat gizzards? I don’t blame the average North American for disliking liver as I too was turned off the first time I had […]

A Zesty Souse Recipe Inspired By A Cure For Hangovers.

22 November 2010

I’m not much of a drinker, though I do enjoy a good Scotch ever so often and I do appreciate a Guinness or two when I’m on the islands (stronger than the ones we get here in North America). So having to deal with hangovers is something that’s completely foreign to me. I recall my […]
