I have been making "Rice and Peas" as us Jamaican's call it, for quite a while and this is really lacking. To start, you should soak your red kidney beans in cold water overnight. When you're r...

Ok, i'm a pretty good chef and was hesitant about this, I was pretty sure that it wouldnt be near enough liquid and boy was I right. To get this recipe right you will need 2.5C of coconut milk, ...
