Looking for a way to use up those Parmesan rinds collecting in your cheese drawer? Check this out. A friend of mine showed me this trick the other day that was so drop-dead easy, so obvious, so I-can't-believe-I-didn't-think-of-this, and so good, I've been eating my way through Parm rinds every day since. All you do is shave them to about a 1/2-inch, no less than 1/4-inch, thickness, spear them with a fork and toast them like marshmallows over a gas flame. Or if you have a broiler, pop them in the broiler. Then slice them into cubes or strips and eat. Sprinkle over salads or soups like a crouton, a pure Parmesan crouton.

When doing research for our recent Jamaican goat curry recipe, what came up most often as an accompaniment was something those from Jamaica call "rice and peas". (Several commenters suggested this dish too.) Traditionally the "peas" are pigeon peas, often substituted with kidney beans (which is what we are using). The rice is cooked in coconut milk.
Oh my gosh. This is one of those I-can't-wait-to-make-it-again dishes. Think of it as a Caribbean version of a Cajun red beans and rice. Our version is a little different from the traditional rice and peas in that we sauté onion and garlic to start the recipe, then add a little fresh grated ginger for added zing. Serve it with curry, roasted meats, jerk chicken or all by itself. The rice is especially good with a little lime juice sprinkled on to serve.
