As I explore the impact of the Roland 808 drum machine in music, this Cornish hen recipe is inspired by The Pointer Sisters’ “Automatic” which aptly describes this recipe. The name is fancy, but the recipe is simple to execute yet highly flavorful and visually appealing. Cornish hens are a much smaller chicken varietal which make them perfect for frying whole. Cinnamon is the star spice/seasoning along with chile powder which gives the dish both its color and complex flavor profile.
Summertime is fun time. Grilling all things including watermelon is a favorite past time of mine. It’s hard to describe grilled watermelon, but trust me it’s simple and delicious. Give this one and try and impress family and friends

An easy doctored up bbq sauce you can use to make many a Caribbean dishes quick and easy. Store-bought jerk marinade + pineapple juice + basic store-bought bbq sauce for the win! This jerk bbq sauce can be used on anything from brown stew chicken to braised oxtails.

Flank steak salads are fun for me. They are simple yet extremely tasty and satisfying. The fun comes from what you add to the salad. I had lemongrass pickled celery I was dying to find a pairing for. Also had some leftover cherry tomatoes I had smoked on the grill. Both made the salad memorable. I highly recommend both the toppings if you have time for them. They’re great for the salad but just as great on their own or in other dishes.
