Spicy Garlic Cookout Wings

This is my go-to wing sauce for summer cookouts because of how delicious and easy it is to make. You can also cook the wings in the oven and baste them with the sauce twice before you take them out.

I always tell my children that when they think they’ve minced the garlic, they should do it 5 more times. If you want a distinct wing sauce, use real garlic, not garlic powder.

Andros Crab & Rice

This is the most quintessential Bahamian dish, a rice so flavourful, “you’ll want to eat the spoon!” Andros is the largest island in the Bahamas (2,300 square miles), known as “The Land of Crabs.” It’s home of the annual crab festival and the birthplace of my grandmother, she made it best with the addition of coconut oil, earthy pigeon peas and salted beef.
