The Healthy version of Rice, Pea's and Chicken

I love my Caribbean cooking however my wife says it's wanted contributed to her putting on some weight in the early years.  I have many version of doing Rice, Peas and Chicken but true Jamaicans would say there's only one version, de real ting..!

I browned the chicken wings then added vegetables and stock and a little gravy granules towards the end of the cooking.  I won't insult you how to cook Rice and Peas, just don't forget to add your coconut oil that really enhances the flavour, some Thyme too.  You can serve up your Rice and Pea's with coleslaw preferably homemade much nicer and fresh too.  However my healthy options is served with cooked veg.

My Bakewell Tart

When your walking around in the Super Market you see a lot of cakes and deserts you often say I could do that.  Do you ever? I think not...!  But I did, I enjoyed fuss of looking for the ingredients that puts this master piece together.  Once you have created your mouth water pie, there's nothing else to do other than eat it..!  Well take a look please don't judge on artistic impression as I would loose on that :)

Olive & Spinach Quiche

You know it's summertime and sometimes you don't always what a plate of meat.  I wanted to make a quiche for my daughter.  It's been a while since I made a quiche.  I thought I'd get creative and see what was in my kitchen.  I looked around a few Super Markets for inspiration and liked the idea of Spinach and Olive Quiche.  The basic principle is the same for making a quiche, you add spinach and Olive to suit, it's quite a refreshing dish served with fried potatoes and salad.  Here is my final creation.

Granny Stockly's Ginger Biccies

I'm a massive fan of ginger biscuits, I've made a lot of them recently.  The recipe was created by Sarah-Jane found in the so all credit goes to Sarah-Jane (The Co-operative food) Issue 3 JULY/AUGUST 2012.

One of the things I enjoyed about making these biscuits they were quick and easy and last quite some time too.  Here's a few photo's of my creation.

When your tart cheats on you.

I'd set out to do a Custard Tart, simple I know.  However I had pastry melt down moment, things went slightly down hill so I ended up adapting my Custard tart base to a Jam tart see the results for yourself.

Let me know how some of your cooking disasters has turned, mine was a stroke of luck, thanks to the wife.  She actually thought it tasted nice Gulp..!
