Classic Cuban Midnight (Medianoche) Sandwich
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
These are moist and delicious despite the fact that there is no liquid other than the berry juice.
Key West Chicken
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.
Florida Key Lime Pie
No bake Key Lime pie - easy and sooo goood! Vanilla extract may be substituted with lemon extract.
Key West Penne
A deliciously rich medley of scallops, shrimp, artichokes, sun-dried tomatoes and pasta! Plus it's quick and easy!
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.
Classic Cuban-Style Picadillo
A classic Cuban ground beef dish — quick and easy, and great over rice.
Rachael's Superheated Cajun Boiled Peanuts
This is the real deal that is found in the heart of Florida. I made this recipe to resemble the taste of my favorite boiled peanuts found in the Ocala National Forest. My family agreed this recipe was one of the best!
