Choco-whiskey ribs



"Feast of Saint Valentine"

I don’t think there are any limitations when it comes to pork ribs. Over the years I have been playing with chocolate and pork with much success. However, this is by far the most delicious chocolate ribs recipe to date. The chocolate raspberry ribs and the coco chipotle baby back ribs are the other two rib recipes that contain chocolate. While those were good, they were a bit more work. This recipe is literally a set it and forget it kind of ribs; you don’t need a grill for this like the other two recipes. Aluminum foil and an oven does all the work here.

Red wine iced mocha


"Feast of Saint Valentine"


Sometimes you just want a glass of red wine in the morning without the judgmental gasps. If that’s you then what better way than to camouflage that glass with some mocha. In all honesty there is more milk than red wine in this, but the flavors of the wine do stand out.  Its cold, and has the perfect balance of bitter, sweet and tart. They always say its 5-o clock somewhere.

Sweet lemongrass, ginger and sage glazed Ham



"Christmas is coming"

You would think I would have run out of ham recipes by now. Between selling ham recipes and making my own for the blog, I’m wondering what ingredients are left? As usual I let my grocery stores available ingredients guide my path. The moment I saw lemongrass in the store I knew I would use it for ham, and it was a most delicious ham.

Lasagna, Greedy Girl style...Jatalian?


"Christmas is coming"


The thing that makes Italian food so good is the fresh quality ingredients and time. Time for that ragu to develop flavors, time for the tomatoes to develop natural sweetness, all this time that most of us don’t have. So, when you want a nice lasagna and you don’t have 12 hours to simmer a scratch made ragu, what’s a girl to do? Follow this recipe.

Herb and orange baked chicken


"Christmas is coming"

Sometimes you just want to bake some drumsticks for a crowd. This is definitely a crowd-pleaser kind of chicken that both adults and kids would love. It’s fairly simple to make and does not take up much time. Quick and easy is a good combination for the holiday dinners where there are so many other things to prepare. Salty, Sweet, sticky and full of flavor, just the way a drumstick should be.

Butter Chicken


"Christmas is coming"

I absolutely adore Asian cuisine. I was Introduced to Indian food by my friend Petra in NY. While I was living there during my late highschool and college days we would always talk about her favorite Indian dishes. She took me to a few restaurants and indeed I did enjoy the food. I was always a fan of Chinese and Thai but over the years developed an appreciation and love for all the food the continent has to offer. I always cook Chinese food at home, but ever thought to try Indian until now.

Nutty Rice with cashews, peanuts and coconut


"Christmas is coming"

November brings another month of recipes that would be great for thanksgiving or Christmas dinner. I have quite a few goodies in store; ham, biscuits, potatoes, lasagna, chicken, maybe duck (I’m a little afraid of the medium rare cooking requirements of duck lol). A holiday table (at least one in Jamaica) would be incomplete without a rice dish, it’s the staple side of life. So first up in this month of holiday recipes, is the rice.
