A week or two ago, my hubby decided to randomly check out my blog and YouTUBE channel. He loved what he saw ( he better had!) however, he was surprised. Why? Because his Jamaican/ Trinidadian decent wife, had only ONE recipe that was caribbean inspired. I have to be honest. I never thought much about it, until he brought it to my attention. I wanted to break my ” lack of caribbean recipe” spell by sharing this amazing Jamaican Beef Patty recipe.
These easy Jamaican Beef Patties, are probably the easiest patties you will make. Jamaican beef patties to Jamaicans, are like hamburgers to Americans. EVERYONE has their own recipes, therefore there are thousands of Jamaican beef patty recipes.
I live in an area that hardly has and caribbean peoples. Therefore, there aren’t any caribbean spices, peppers, popular ingredients sold around these parts. I’ve learned to improvise, and use whatever I can. I use a simple curry seasoning that is packed with tumeric, chili powder, and cumin. As common as these spices are, they actually do the job!

My husband is not a fan of ground turkey. I’ve been trying to think of many ways to get this man to eat less beef, and try a little ground beef once in a while. He’s so stubborn, and set in his ways and refused to eat any ground turkey! I had a trick up my sleeve. I knew that If I could make meatloaf, which is his favorite food, out of ground turkey and beg him to sample just a forkful “for my blog” he’d do it. Honey! let me tell you- not only did this man sample my turkey meatloaf, but he asked me to make him a plate, AND went back for seconds! I finally got him to eat ground turkey! Not only did he eat it, but he enjoyed it and asked me to make it again! MISSION ACCOMPLISHED!
This turkey meatloaf is amazing ( just ask my turkey hating hubby!). It’s full of flavor, and it’s super moist. It’s low in fat, and it’s a lot lighter than the traditional meatloaf which is made of ground beef.

St. Patricks day is coming, and I’m pretty sure that some of you want a nice Corned Beef and Cabbage recipe on hand.
Here is a simple yet delicious recipe that I use for my corned beef and cabbage. This recipe calls for very few ingredients, and taste great accompanied with cornbread or rolls!
