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.

Grilled Brown Sugar Peaches

Peaches are the official fruit of summer, but to get the most out of them, add some magic by grilling them and spreading them with cinnamon-brown sugar butter.

Djon Djon – Haitian Mushroom Rice

Djon djon rice is to Haitians what gold is to royalty. Commonly known as “black rice”, it’s one of our most unique and delicious dishes. When the djon djon comes out, you know it’s a celebration.

Djon djon translates to “mushroom”, specifically those mushrooms grown in the northern part of Haiti. As a result, the mushrooms aren’t easily available for most folks so I like to suggest cooking the rice with a Maggi cube. The substitution is frowned upon by some but it does the exact same job in my opinion.

If there are a lot of Haitians in the area where you live, you might get lucky and find djon djon at a Caribbean market. Either way, this recipe delivers amazing flavor and once you make it, you’ll never want to eat rice & peas any other way.

This recipe takes a lot less time than the traditonal method, thanks to the use of a rice cooker.
