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…

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,…

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…

Mojo Chicken Breast

Mojo Chicken Breast by Bob Vincent

This is a quick and tasty grilled chicken dish. The use of Cuban Mojo sauce perks up a boneless skinless chick breast. Use whatever spices you like to season the chicken before grilling. I chose a combination of Pasilla pepper, cumin, garlic pepper and salt. I served the chicken with a strawberry jicama salsa, baked plantains,…

I added some ingredients in the form of rum, honey and garlic to the glaze. I used red onion instead of shallots as well. The dish is easy to make. Butterflying the pork…
