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…

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!

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi

Dutch West Indies Chicken Kebabs - Boka Dushi by John Spottiswood

This dish offers an amazing collage of flavors blending Indonesian, Portuguese, Spanish and West African flavors. Personally, I prefer the marinade and dipping sauce on these kebabs to traditional Indonesian satay. The heavy sweetness of the Indonesian peanut sauce is replaced by a tangy, spicy and slightly sweet mixture of peanuts,…

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…

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…

Mango Lassi by Parsley Sage

I was puttering around the kitchen thinking about breakfast and the lovely mango eyeballing me from the counter when I decided the lassi recipe I picked up at the 2nd Annual Mango Festival was what my tummy was craving. It was delicious!

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…

I got this from a Crockpot Cookbook, its low fat and easy to prepare. Serve over rice, couscous or noodles. Leftovers are good mixed with scrambled eggs and served in flour tortilla for a quick breakfast burrito.
