Jamaican Jerk Chicken


1 T thyme
1 T all spice
1 T salt
1 t black pepper
1 t cinnamon
1 t nutmeg
1 t ginger
½ c olive oil
½ c soy sauce
1 lime
1 c orange juice
1 c white vinegar
3 jalapenos
½ yellow white
4 cloves garlic
6 pieces of chicken (breast or thighs)


In a food processor add the thyme, all spice, salt, pepper, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, olive oil, soy sauce, lime, orange juice and vinegar. Mix well, about thirty seconds. Meanwhile, slice the onion, jalapenos and garlic.

Place chicken in a large storage bowl. Add the onion, garlic and jalapenos over the chicken, and mix up. Now add the sauce mixture over the chicken, and once again, mix well. Store into refrigerator for at least one day.

When ready to cook, heat up large saucepan on medium heat. Place a small amount of olive oil in pan, and when hot, add the chicken and a small amount of sauce. When well cooked on one side, flip, and allow to cook until it is a dark brown on both sides.

When cooking chicken, heat oven to 375. When chicken is brown on both sides, add remaining liquid into pan, place into oven with lid, and allow to cook for about 20 to 25 minutes. (Use a thermometer if not sure the chicken is done).

Enjoy! Go Miami.

Waldorf Salad


            2 apples (red or green)
            1 c celery
            1/3 c walnuts
            2 ½ t plain yogurt
            1 t honey
            1 t lemon juice
            ¼ c grapes
            Romaine Lettuce


            Mix in a large bowl the yogurt, honey and lemon juice. Make sure they are well incorporated. Cut up the apples into chunks, and add to the yogurt mixture, this will stop the apples from browning. Slice the celery and grapes, and cut up the walnuts. Add to the mixture, and stir well.

            Place large leafs from the romaine on a place, and place the apple mixture on top. Enjoy, Go jets, kick some butt!
