Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker

Simple Cuban Black Beans & Rice in a Rice Cooker by John Spottiswood

I've loved cuban black beans and rice ever since I lived in Weehawken, New Jersey and ate at the Unica Cafe. This recipe takes some short cuts and uses a rice cooker, but I still think the results are delicious. Try this under any caribbean grilled meat, fish or stew and you won't be disappointed!

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade

Cuban-style Steaks in Garlic-Lime Marinade by John Spottiswood

These steaks are a treat and a great way to make an inexpensive cut of meat memorable. You can use bottom round (best), top round, or a thin cut sirloin for this dish. The steaks should be cut about a 1/2 thick. Mine were a little thicker, so I pounded them with a mallet to thin them. In Cuban restaurants, this recipe is called…

Cayman Johnnycake

Cayman Johnnycake by Parsley Sage

An old staple recipe in Cayman is the johnnycake. Oh man, they're good. They're also mix-and-matchable. You can go savory or sweet by serving it with something like garlic butter or even honey. Johnnycakes are pretty easy to make too which sparks a big thumbs up from me. Thumbs up from Mrs. Herb Garden too who is currently…

Cremitas de Leche / Light Caramel Milk Cookies

Cremitas de Leche / Light Caramel Milk Cookies by Gloria Rodriguez

Originally from: http://www.mundorecetas.com/recetas-de-cocina/recetas-postt21091.html I did everything right, except, I took them out just a bit too soon. If it's still too gooey, do not lower the flame, get it so that you can see more of the pan when you stir (not just the edges) and that the texture is thick and sticky.

Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork

Caribbean Colombo Roasted Pork by Rosemarie

Like the islands themselves, this wonderful pork dish lingers a bit in the oven, giving you plenty of time to sit back, relax and listen to the sounds of steel drum music. Now would be the perfect time to whip up a batch of tropical drinks, close your eyes and imagine far away places.

Papaya Pie

Papaya Pie by Parsley Sage

I've mentioned before that Clark Kent and I volunteer with Cayman Wildlife Rescue. Every few weeks, we drive out to Savannah to clean the cages, change out the toys, provide showering services and lavish with treats the six rescued Cayman Parrots that are currently in recovery. They love papayas! If they could eat it in pie, they…

Coconut Blondies

Coconut Blondies by Parsley Sage

So there's a tropical wave disrupting my ever-flowing sun. 'Variable cloudiness and showers can be expected through tonight.' I got soaked sprinting to my spinning class. Aren't wet socks the worst? Despite the soggy socks, I'm actually happy to see the rain. My poor aloe vera plants have curled up, my hibiscus blossoms are droopy…

Caribbean Banana Cake

Caribbean Banana Cake by Gabriel Denison Chandler

I enjoy making this far more than the pedestrian versions of banana bread. You may add a shot of rum with the vanilla if you like: this version doesn't have it. You can also substitute Splenda for the white sugar. This cake is not sweet,and can be split and iced with Cream Cheese/Honey frosting to dress it up or just enjoyed plain…
