Make Jerk Chicken Magic with Miss Lily’s Jerk Sauce

On a not-particularly-pretty, busy stretch of Houston Street, there’s a place that’s way too cool for me. Probably for you, too. Miss Lily’s is many things.

I love fajitas. I love the fajita process. Assembling the different components just the way you like ‘em and folding them into a hot flour (or corn!) tortilla. Squeezing a lime atop the whole shebang and digging in. The fajita is your blank canvas, waiting for your inspired culinary brushstrokes.

Lamb: Oh So Good and Good For You

Anthony Hopkins said about lamb in the movie “Meet Joe Black,” “…not as chewy as roast beef, not as boring as chicken.” Boy, was he right. When you’re getting tired of chicken and it seems too bland, yet red meat seems like too strong a taste, lamb will save the day. Lamb is a wonderful […]
