One of my favorite recipes that I learned from my college roommate from Guyana how to make jerk wings. Her recipe was short and simple. It includes using either Walker Woods marinade or Grace marinade. Slather marinade over wings and bake. That is it. And it is spicy and delicious. However, if you don’t live in New York or cities with large populations then you find that cost of these quick foolproof marinades escalates. It is time to now how to make the jerk sauce from scratch.
According to the Caribbean Pot Blog:

We had a little snow yesterday. Nothing like what they had in New England. More like the bust of a snowstorm they had in New York City. The kids were disappointed with only a two-hour delay to the start of school. I’m proud of the schools for not closing for a 3/4 inch of snowfall.
I formulate my meal plans for the week by taking out a variety of meats and fish from the freezer on Saturday or Sunday. I then come up with ideas of what I am going to make and research recipes online. I use my own ideas to modify multiple recipes to suit my families taste. I attempt to make all of our meals lower in fat and calories. I also try to make enough to have leftovers for lunch the next day for myself or my wife.

A process for making silkier and smoother chocolate called conching was developed in 1879 by Swiss Rodolphe and made it easier to bake with chocolate as it amalgamates smoothly and completely with cake batters.
In the U.S.A, “chocolate decadence” cakes were popular in the 1980s; in the 1990s, single-serving molten chocolate cakes with liquid chocolate centers and infused chocolates with exotic flavors such as tea, curry, red pepper, passion fruit, and champagne were popular.
