Cuban Sandwiches

Sparky, I noticed the same thing when I went to Cuba. When I asked the people I was with about the sandwich, they laughed. They said the food situation on the island was so bad that the new Cuban Sandwich was bread and cheese because the pork, ham and pickle had run off to Miami...a joke, of course, but still no sandwich to be found. Did you find any decent places to eat there? If so, please share!

7 Things to Do with Canned Sardines

Ecuadoran style sardines = combine canned sardines in tomato sauce with a boiled potato and red onion relish (red onion warmed in lemon juice, then drizzled with olive oil, S&P to taste) = yummy and so simple. Mound the salad on a scoop of brown rice and dinner is special, delicious and nutritious!

Beef Wellington

Momnivore: can you share your blue cheese recipe? I know I'll sound like a Philistine when I say this, but I'm not crazy about liver and pate doesn't do it for me. Thanks in advance!

Fire-Charred Green Beans with Cajun Dipping Sauce

You can also do these on the stove in a very large frying pan. I melt a little butter on high, add some olive oil, then toss in the green beans, some minced garlic, salt and pepper. You toss the beans well until they are covered in the oil mixture and the herbs, then spread the beans out in the pan so they fry and not steam and don't touch them for at least five minutes until they begin to char a bit. My husband loves them this way because they don't get soggy. Try this with haricort verts--it reduces the cooking time and the beans are delicious.

Italian Deli Blowout Sandwich

If you replace the mozzarella with some smoky provolone, you've got yourself a deal!

100 Pounds of Leftovers

I agree about the heart. My mother used to make estofado de corazon with calf hearts and carrots and potatoes. It was a delicious stew she served with rice. She did the same thing with tongue. One trick she had to deal with tougher cuts was to add a bit of beer or wine to the broth when the stew was cooking. Yum!
