Classic Cuban Midnight (Medianoche) Sandwich

Rating: 4.5 stars 179
This is one of the more famous sandwiches straight out of the island of Cuba. This recipe came from my uncle who used to work at a restaurant in Pinar del Rio, Cuba and now works at a Cuban cafeteria here in Miami. This sandwich is best served with fried plantain chips and a cold mamey milkshake!

Florida Strawberry Muffins

Rating: 4 stars 225
These are moist and delicious despite the fact that there is no liquid other than the berry juice.

Key West Chicken

Rating: 4.5 stars 1580
This recipe from the Florida Keys has been given to almost everyone I know. It is the best marinade for chicken, and it only takes 30 minutes from prep till you can grill! It's a great blend of flavors with honey, soy sauce, and lime juice. If you have time, try marinating overnight for the fullest flavor.

Panhandle Grits

Rating: 4.5 stars 20
What's more Southern than grits? My own version of a dish that is a house specialty at a restaurant in the Florida Panhandle. I've tweaked the original recipe, and I think this version is even better than the original! You can use either yellow or white grits, but the yellow ones make a more attractive presentation.
