Anyone who has eaten many plates of blackened, mangy-looking jerk chicken might get the impression that Caribbean cooking is fairly limited. The cuisine of most of the English-speaking islands is often lumped under the umbrella of stews, dumplings and pineapple-strewn desserts.

And as  KWBU’s Ryland Barton reports, the couple says they’ve found some haunted buildings…right in downtown Waco.
