Jay's Jerk Chicken
This is one of my nephew's favorite grilled recipes. Jerk means Jamaican barbecue. This well rounded flavor of sweet, hot, herbal and spicy chicken can be served with rice, beans or pasta. Or just make a chicken sandwich out of it! I also add garlic and a kiwi to the marinade.
Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting
Cream cheese frosting with a little extra something. This is a good frosting for spice cakes that contain allspice.
A Plus Carrot Cake
Tired of the same old, boring carrot cake? THIS is the Carrot cake you'll love forever! A little different because some of the ingredients aren't what you'd find in a 'normal' carrot cake. My own MOTHER, who despises anything coconut, had two helpings for dessert and took some home!! Don't knock it until you try it!! You'll never go back to that boring recipe again.
Spiced Butternut Squash Soup
My boys LOVE this soup! It's a 'stick to your ribs' soup that everyone will enjoy. Sherry helps to deepen the flavor while half-and-half cream gives an added richness to the soup.
Shemakes Instant Chai Tea
I have searched for an instant chai recipe on the net, but could not find one. This is what I made up, hope you enjoy it. Please feel free to modify it or adapt it.
Authentic Mole Sauce
Hot chiles and rich chocolate make this authentic mole sauce perfect for topping stewed meats or enchiladas.
Authentic Cincinnati Chili
This was handed down to me by Mom, a Cincinnati native. Skimming the fat makes this a healthier version than most, and gives it the right consistency. I like mine 4-way, with spaghetti, raw chopped onions, grated mild cheddar, and oyster crackers!
Easy Apple Cider
Simple spiced apple cider! I used to buy the spices already mixed at the grocery store, and they stopped carrying it this year, so I just made my own. This is great for a shower or get together and the slow cooker keeps it warm, so guests can enjoy it through the night. When it's done, it's great mixed with spiced rum and/or a slice of orange! Leftover cider is great cold too!
Berbere Spice Blend
I love berbere spice, a classic Ethiopian spice blend, but it never occurred to me to make my own. Actually, authentic berbere spice would use whole spice seeds/pods, toasted, and ground. But I usually toast the spices during the cooking process. Berbere is one of the most delicious and versatile spice mixes ever.Sponsored By [object Object]
Chow Chow I
A way to use all those fresh summer veggies.
Pumpkin Spice Coffee
Why spend extra money on seasonal flavored coffee when you can easily make your own?
This made-in-minutes chili sauce is a great substitute for bottled chili sauce.
