Jamaican Hominy Corn Porridge, Instant Pot Recipe

Corn holds a large part in the history of Jamaican food. The Taino people had green thumbs and agriculture was one of the things they were really good at. So it makes sense that this porridge would be eaten across the island. It’s filling, nourishing, and is loved by...

Thai Spice Blend

I developed this Thai Spice Blend because we love to grill ribs and chicken wings and we like to vary the flavors. Thai is one of my favorite cuisines where it balances hot, sweet, tangy and salty flavors so well. This isn’t a curry spice, but a tasty change...

Jamaican Curry Powder

Jamaican Curry Powder is your basic spice mix. This mix doesn’t contain garlic, ginger or chili because most Jamaican recipes add these flavorings fresh in the recipe so this redundancy is not necessary. This also makes for a much fresher tasting dish. These spices can be found in the...

Vegan Sancocho, My Way

I promised that I would supply vegetarian alternatives to many of the meat based recipes that I post for the Caribbean. Vegan Sancocho, My Way, is probably going to make some people upset because of the “no meat” thing, but it is so good! I wanted to give this...

This is an easy recipe to make for meat lovers as well as vegetarians. You can make them ahead and fry them right before your party and keep them warm in the oven. I’ve included a vegetarian version and a beef version. You could also substitute any protein you’d...

Chicharrón-Fried Pork Skins

These are a labor of love, but so worth the effort. This is a good rainy weekend project. They are crispy and spicy if you decide to use the chili powder. You’ll need to get the skin from a good butcher as I doubt you’d be able to get...

Cauliflower (Gobi) Paratha

I love these with Red Lentil Dal. It’s my favorite soup and sandwich combo when I need something to spice it up! These can be a little time consuming, but so worth it. When I make them for myself, I just make two at a time to go with...

Sri Lankan Red Lentil Curry
