ARROZ CON POLLO

ARROZ CON POLLO

   I’m always looking for new ways to cook the same old ingredients.  I have to admit that chicken and rice and two ingredients that are in heavy rotation around here and it can be challenging at times to find new ways to cook it.  I’ve always been intrigued with arroz con pollo (which is literally chicken with rice) and over the years have been tweaking this dish a bit to suit my liking.  Similar to paella, this dish is...Read more …

HARISSA LAMB STEW

HARISSA LAMB STEW

I’m always looking for new ways to cook stews.   I make a lot of stews and sometimes I need to switch it up a bit.  I picked up a jar of harissa at World Market and instantly thought of making a lamb stew.  Harissa is a hot pepper paste from North Africa and is also available in a spice blend which has dried chilis, coriander, cumin and lemon – it goes really well with meats.  On a recent trip to...Read more …
QUEEN CAKES

QUEEN CAKES

  Queen Cakes were the first cupcakes that I’ve ever had so it has always had a place in my heart.  Recently I found myself thumbing through What’s Cooking in Guyana and landed on the recipe for queen cakes.  Queen cakes are a bit denser than the traditional cupcake and its texture is similar to a sponge cake.  I did a quick search on the internet and all of the recipes have dried fruit, however the queen cakes I grew...Read more …
THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

THE BEST TURKEY MEATLOAF

The name meatloaf is anything but exciting and leaves a lot to be desired and truth be told, I’ve had quite a few bad meatloaves in my lifetime.  You know – the dense, dry, compact meat product that resembles a brick more than something edible.  Well my meatloaf is anything but the aforementioned; it’s is moist, flavorful and packed with vegetables.  I add a medley of vegetables for 2 reasons, the first reason being that my son avoids eating vegetables,...Read more …
