About this Cook
I am a 20-something female. I am a tru Jamaican Cutey . When it comes to cooking I get no points for being a pie but I do cook finger licking dishes. Althu I do cook traditional Jamican and caribbean dishes ....I love cooking every type of cuisine
My favorite things to cook
Mostly whatever am cooking at the moment is my favourite but ....I love making soups..baking cakes and cooking fish . I do believe that my soups are truly the best!!
My favorite family cooking traditions
+++Sunday Dinners!!! They are always elaborate many dishes . +++ Saturday is always soup day. +=="hell at top hell at bottom" my mother taught me how to bake a sweet potato pudding using coal set in a heap on the ground. Then a grill is placed on stones to form a rack on which the baking tins is placed. Next a piece of metal covering is placed over the baking tin ...and burning coAL IS PLACED ON TOP OF THE METAL!! The top of the pudding ends up being somewhat brown and caremalized!! and has nice smoky taste!!!!!!!!!!
My cooking triumphs
This may sound silly but cooked the perfect Rice and Peas ?(rice and beans) Jamiacan style for the first time a month ago. I made my own coconut mild and all
My cooking tragedies
LOL ...when I was seven my father got me a cookie monster book. There was a cookie recipe at the back of the sunday while my parents slept i crept into the kitchen and tried to bake cookies....i got burnt by a drop of caramelized sugar...I STILL HAVE THE MARK ON MY HAND AND THE PUNISHMENT THAT FOLLOWED ETCHED IN MY MIND!!

Master Recipe for Rich and Creamy Cheesecake
A great recipe tht is easy to follow.I dont recall seeing the temp setting for the oven however.I separated my eggs and added well beaten egg whites last for a lighter texture.

Roasted Lemon Herb Chicken
This recipe was easy to follow.As lemony is not my flavour I went for a little spicy. I added chopped 1 large scotch Bonnet peppers and 5 cloves garlic > I rubbed this over the chicken and stuffed a little under the skin before adding powdered seasonings> I also stuffed the cavity of the chicken wth a small amt (1 tbl spoon) in the chicken wth 3 sprigs of thyme.Its important to brush off any of the chopped pepper and garlic that may adhere to teh chicken as this will burn.

White Fruit Cake
This recipe is perfect but I always make my own changes...LOL I soaked the raisins in scotch for 5 days.I then reserve the scotch to use to feed my finished fruit cake.I added orange extract and some allspice for a lil more flavor.I still added the orange juice to the mix along with the fruits as the original recipe required.
