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.

Crispy chicken stuffed with toasted pumpkin seed bacon jam




Pumpkin Everythang!\

Back at it again with another pumpkin month. I can’t even lie to you it gets harder and harder every year to come up with 9 new pumpkin recipes. Its year four, and I have decided that I have to get into using all the parts of the pumpkin, skin, flesh and seeds in order to make it through. So, without further gibberish on the struggles I deal with in recipe creation let’s get to what your here for this bombtastic recipe.

Slow cooker beef bowl



"Beefy"


It’s the last recipe of the month. Next month will be all about pumpkins. For this last recipe I wanted to do a simple enough recipe, very hands off, something you can set in the night or before you head off to work and then have ready when you get home or wake up. If you don’t have a slow cooker it’s something I would recommend.
