Roasted Jerk Chicken

Roasted Jerk Chicken. At home nobody cooks for me. So while the family and friends are sitting in the living room relaxing and watching the tube, you’re in the kitchen getting a dinner together.

Banana Pecan Nut Muffins

This recipe can be made in a loaf tin or equally portioned into a...

I confess that my eating habits sometimes get way out of control, so I’ve strapped myself back onto the wagon of health and good eating. My last time in the Hospital for a simple procedure went way out of my control wrong. I was given antibiotics that gave me severe reactions. So they gave me more to combat the first dose. What it did is kill all the good micro bacteria living in...
