Ripe Plantain Pie

One pot dishes are the best. I really love sometimes being able to create a meal that is just in one pot and ready to serve. It doesn't make the mess less though. Sigh. But this ripe plantain pie recipe was another great one pot dish that I am very happy to share with you today. The union of the sweet ripe plantains sandwiching the savory chicken for a bite full of goodness.

Indochine Chicken and Shrimp: Grand Lux Copycat

I think that Grand Lux found a winner with this dish. The first time I had it I ate really, really slow, savoring the taste. The second time I had it, my coworker and I insisted we could figure out what was in it. Besides the obvious chicken, shrimp and curry sauce, we were a bit stumped to what it was. Until she found a recipe on the world wide web and opted to try. And here is the copycat to Grand Lux's Indochine Chicken and Shrimp.

Creole Shrimp with Parsley CousCous

Today I'm going to introduce you to one of those dishes that is a staple in my family. I think my sister can make this creole shrimp with her eyes closed.

Trinidad Homemade Ginger Beer

A refreshingly delicious ginger drink. Using fresh ginger and spices. Another Caribbean Christmas favorite. I am addicted to ginger drinks! I collect ginger ale by the cases. I have ginger tea in full stock. And then there is the ginger beer . Ginger beer is a Caribbean favorite. It can easily be Jamaican ginger beer or Barbados ginger beer. The idea of the drink across the islands is the same, but as with everything else, there will be slight variations of processes. This drink is on the opposite side of ginger ale. Unlike ginger ale's slight taste of ginger, ginger beer has a very heavy flavor of ginger that can at times "burn your chest" with the spice. I am not too much of a fan of a burning chest, so my mom has been able to find a perfect blend of ginger for her recipe. That makes this the best ginger beer recipe ever. (I may be biased.)

Lasagne Soup

*Disclosure - I was provided this product from BzzAgent to facilitate this review. All opinions and recipes are mine.* It is always great to transform one of your favorite dishes into another dish that is just as great. This is what happened with this lasagne soup. Thanks to Monterey Gourmet Foods  and their amazing cheese ravioli I was able to convert one of my favorite meals into something else: lasagne to lasagne soup.  This soup is flavorful, and EASY! You know I love easy food.
