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,…

Banana Glazed Butterflied Pork Tenderloin

Banana Glazed Butterflied Pork Tenderloin by Bob Vincent

This is a recipe adapted from Cheryl & Bill Jamison's book "Born To Grill." The original used pork chops but I had a tenderloin on hand that worked nicely. 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…

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 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…

Sweet and Spicy Chicken

Sweet and Spicy Chicken by JULIE MCMAHON

This is a recipe from a Cuban cookbook Three guys from Miami. It is not an authentic recipe because it has red pepper flakes which is not typical of cuban food. This is a delicious dish. It is very flavorful! It is a nice change for the same old chicken recipes.

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…
