Potluck

There are several crazy things happening all at once in this one delicious bite.  There is the delicious scallion pancake, the perfectly cooked peppers and onions, the rib eye steak and then there is the garlic provolone cheese sauce. The most perfect layers of flavors one could imagine.

Cheese stuffed spaghetti and meatballs


Potluck

A few weeks ago I was browsing Instagram as usual and found a video of some delicious mozzarella stuffed meatballs.  I don’t think I waited three days before I made a huge batch of sauce and got to making stuffed spaghetti and meatballs for dinner.

Barbe-fry Chicken sandwiches


Potluck


This recipe has been a long time coming. I have been teasing all my Instagram followers with the beautiful sights of fried chicken smothered in sauce with no recipe to back it up. Since this month is all about whatever I want to make, and since I had every intention of making some chicken sandwiches for dinner. It only made sense to record each step and measurements as I did it so everyone can share in this glorious meal.

Garlic Shrimp


Potluck


There are at least seven hundred and fifty thousand garlic shrimp recipes available to us.  And each recipe has slight variations. This one like all the others is a very simple and easy dish to prepare for anyone who loves shrimp. It takes no more than 15 minutes to prepare you can serve with potatoes, rice or toss with some pasta.

Escovitch fish sticks




Potluck

Usually I’m not a fan of escovitch fish that's not a whole fish. We buy sliced snapper and butter-fish all the time but rarely do we escovitch them. To me there is a taste the fish has sometimes that I don’t care for. I rather filet a whole fish myself if needs be (but then who even has the time for that). The day I made this, I was just in the mood for some spicy pickle sauce on fish. And we were completely out of whole fish, and I had a few bags of snapper in the freezer and figured what the heck. Can I tell you how delicious it was?

Deliciously basic honey bbq wings

Potluck


This will be the easiest and most delicious honey BBQ wings you will ever eat. Its sweet, sticky and flavorful. We don’t always have the time to make a hickory smoked BBQ sauce from scratch, and in those moments when you’re strapped for time, but you don’t want to sacrifice flavor, these are your wings. To be honest even if you have the time and 30 ingredients to make a sauce from scratch, don’t bother make these instead!

Boneless cheese stuffed fried drumsticks


Potluck


Following no rules this month, cooking whatever craziness comes to mind and boneless drumsticks stuffed with cheese is exactly what I was in the mood for. I am always on a quest to improve my fried chicken skills and this one is double dipped and stuffed with onions, peperjack, and parmesan cheese.

Spinach and Herb garlic bread


 M...eat...less


Yummy time again, I am the uncrowned garlic bread queen. If you didn’t know now you know. I always make really quick mini batches for dinner using left over bread ends.  This garlic bread is a little different from my usual quick ones. I added cheese and veggies to the mix just to make myself feel better about eating the whole thing.

Jamaican Pepper Pot soup


M...eat...less


At most restaurants in Jamaica, these are your soup choices: pumpkin, pepper pot or red peas soup. All three of which are usually quite tasty. I almost never order the pepper pot soup, it’s an ok soup to me, but I will choose pumpkin soup all day every day. And while we make pumpkin soup and red pea’s soup at home all the time we hardly ever make pepper pot soup. Let’s face it, not many Jamaicans will take precious callaloo and make it into a soup, instead of sautéing it and eating it with fried dumpling and plantain. We surely don’t,  but today I have tried my best to recreate what I've been  eating all these years at restaurants…minus the ocra.

Grilled Eggplant ricotta muffins



M...eat...less


I have been trying to post this recipe since Friday to no avail. Finally the internet seems to be back so I post the recipe in peace.  If I know what’s good for me I should probably type up and upload Tuesdays and Fridays post to the blog as well, so in case the internet decides to hold us hostage yet again, I can use my phone to upload. But I have faith that this fate won’t come to pass; let’s get to the eggplant.
