Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Jamaican Chicken

Jamaican Chicken by John Spottiswood

Jerk chicken (and pork) is so famous in Jamaica, it's easy to forget that the island has other barbecued dishes. Among them is this incredibly flavorful, fall-off-the-bone-tender chicken. It's probably best cooked with a whole chicken, but I've only done it with chicken pieces. Also, if you're in a rush you can skip the marinade…
