About this Cook
I had a job that sent me to work in Jamaica for 7 months. The food there is great. But caution: I found out Ram Head soup is really Ram Head soup....eyeballs, ears, noses, brains! It was yummy but after an eyeball floated to the top I could never eat it again! LOL. Jerk Chicken and Jerk Pork were my favorites. For beginning cooks the Jamaican Meat Pies in Allrecipes is very easy and one of my favorites.
My cooking triumphs
Don't have any great ones yet but I'm going to tackle a chocolate or cheese souffle.....hope I can put that in my triumphs box.
My cooking tragedies
Fudge I made in 1970 when I was a newlywed.....we couldn't break it with a hammer!

Beer Batter Fish Fillets
This was great! I didn't have any dill weed and only had a dark wheat beer. I used cod which is my favorite for fish & chips and canola oil which is a little healthier than vegetable oil. They turned out perfect.

Cheater Pot Pie
My little sis made this for me once and I loved it but I did the same thing she did.....I picked up a roasted chicken at the deli, that has more flavor than canned chicken and since you only need half the chicken then I have more for chicken salad sandwiches or any other recipe. This is a quick easy tasty meal.

Jamaican Fried Dumplings
The true Jamaican name for them is "Johnny cakes" My cook there made them for every meal for me. I also loved Jamaican Meat pies (recipe here in Allrecipes) and fried plantains or fried bananas (I loved both)
