Roasted Asparagus

When asparagus season rolls around, we indulge in them by using this recipe – it’s easy, fast and delicious. I first ran across this method on the internet, in a recipe by Laura Vitale. She uses parmesan cheese, which I love. My mother is not too keen on parmesan (she calls it “pum” cheese) so […]

This is the perfect dish to prepare for a weeknight dinner – easy, quick and delicious. I came up with this method because I love combining salmon with sweet sauces, so why not use Thai chili sweet sauce for a change? My chickens love it so now it is on our dinner rotation regularly. I […]

Caribbean Stewed Oxtails

Stewed Oxtail is one of my favorite things to eat. I do not make it often because it is time-consuming and not exactly the healthiest thing to have on a regular basis.  When I do make it (2 or 3 times a year), it’s an excellent treat for special occasions. This recipe is from Chris […]

It makes foods bright with flavor, injecting that ineffable Caribbean touch that enhances an ordinary dish and catapults it to the next level.

Simple Korean BBQ Ribs

This dish is simple and delicious. I got the inspiration from Seonkyoung Longest . She used baby back ribs for her recipe, and I used short ribs. Because short ribs are not as thick, I did not boil them first. I also charred the green onions on the grill, instead of using it raw as a garnish. These […]

There Is An Octopus In My Kitchen

My love affair with octopus began a long time ago, when I first moved into my own apartment and spent lots of time experimenting in the kitchen. I remember clearly driving all the way to North Miami, to a place called Lorenzo’s, to get a fresh octopus to cook an Italian recipe I got from […]
