Recipe #483589

This is from Eating Well, and I am posting for safekeeping. They say "These easy sweet potato fritters have a crispy crust and a tender middle. The beans are flavored with smoked paprika, but sweet or hot would work well too. To give it a Mexican-inspired twist, use chili powder as the spice instead of the paprika." Reviewers on that site say the fritters are a bit dry and benefit from a sour cream/yogurt sauce or even a sweet chutney. Posting for safekeeping.

Recipe #455678

I was in need of some quick beans and didn't have time for the usual soak-and-cook or even crock pot method, so to Google I went! I found this on the Paupered Chef webpage, and to my delight it worked like a charm with no negative digestive results (ahem). That said, I have only tried this with pinto beans, so I can't testify to the success of doing another kind of bean in this way. Also, the original recipe calls for 1/2 T salt in the water, which I omitted because I have always been told that salt in the cooking water makes beans tough. Feel free to add it if you'd like!

Recipe #487851

This is from The Essential Best Foods Cookbook by Dana Jacobi. I know there are lots of sweet potato chowders and shrimp chowders on Zaar, but I hadn't seen them combined (and with yummy coconut milk!!).

Recipe #384475

I just invented these to use up some pineapple and chopped nuts. If I make it public, you can assume the experiment went well :).

Recipe #312122

From the Tightwad Gazette, given to me by my dear sister :). This has been a standby for my family for quite a while, though I have healthed it up with various flours instead of all AP. The original recipe calls for a garnish of poppy or sesame seeds.

Recipe #504345

Just mangos with a little bit of sugar (if needed) and a tiny bit of lemon juice to prevent browning. You could easily use stevia or erythritol for a sugar free version. I like to unmold my popsicles, wrap in wax paper, and store in a freezer bag so I can use the molds to make another flavor without having to finish the whole batch.

Recipe #504720

This coconut loaf is traditionally served as breakfast with Recipe #504721. It is a quick and easy bread, that goes well with tropical jams like guava, passion fruit, or mango. The recipe calls for fresh coconut, but frozen could easily be substituted. "To open a coconut, pierce the eyes with an ice pick, pour out the liquid. Break coconut open with a hammer and pry out meat then scrape off the brown skin. Chop or grate meat with your hand or in a processor." From for ZWT9

Recipe #504723

I received this recipe from a friend in Barbados. It reminds me of a corn pudding, or very soft cornbread.

Recipe #504718

A refreshing tropical treat. I like to unmold the popsicles, wrap them in wax paper, and store in a freezer bag so I can use my molds to make other flavors without having to consume the entire batch. Taken from dailycandy for ZWT9.

Recipe #504719

Boljol is a spicy salsa like condiment commonly found in the Caribbean, and is said to mean "hot mouth." Served on fries, bakes, toast, rolls, or even crackers.

Recipe #504721

A delicious sounding breakfast recipe. You can use canned or instant hollandaise if you prefer. From recipeisland by Gretchen Labrenz, for ZWT9.

I've been busy posting recipes from our cruise & found in 2 cookbooks I bought on-board ship. I'm now down to the devilishly delicious desserts, but b4 we go to the *Dept of Decadence* I wanted to share a recipe from the *Spa Section of Carnival Creations* by Cyrus Marfatia that brought Annacia to mind when I read the intro -- "An extremely tasty pumpkin pie to be thankful for as it is low in calories, fat, sodium + cholesterol & is just plain incredible." This is untried, so I hope 1 of you will give it a try & testify that the intro to this easy-fix is truthful. :-)

Found in the most recent email I received from, this unique recipe is by Miami-based celebrity chef *Douglas Rodriguez* who (at 43 yrs of age) has been hailed as the *Godfather of Nuevo Latino Cuisine* . He is also a cookbook author & owner of award-winning restaurants in Miami, Philadelphia, Scottsdale & Chicago. This recipe shares his fondness for the Thanksgiving holiday, his memories of his apron-clad grandmother cooking in their Miami kitchen & his Cuban heritage. (Times have been estimated. 20 min was allowed for ingredient prep & the overall times reflect only the time spent getting the stuffing ready for the turkey or the oven.) *Enjoy* !

Recipe #338936

I received this recipe from a friend in Barbados, after I asked to bring a few of her favorite recipes back home with me. The ingredients are meant to be weighed for the most consistent results.

Recipe #504717

Per Wikipedia, the Pina Colada is a rum-based Caribbean cocktail uniquely identified w/Puerto Rico & has been its official beverage since 1978. This recipe goes a step further & applies the ingredient & taste profiles to a sweet treat everyone loves -- The Doughnut. What adds to their appeal is they are baked (vs fried) to reduce calories & fat content. This recipe is easily halved & once cooked the doughnuts can be frozen for later use. Times have been estimated & do not include cooling & waiting time. Enjoy!

I got a bar menu on-board ship during our recent cruise & had the names of some specialty drinks, but no recipes for them. Most were tasted, touted by another (there were 6 of us) or just sounded good to me. I did the Zaar searches & most had already been posted to Zaar, but I found a few of the others at the Carnival Connections site.

From *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas, this dessert is untried but I found it esp appealing as it is an ingredient-friendly + make-ahead & no-cook quick-fix that takes only minutes to serve. I saw this as ideal for a light dessert finale to an otherwise heavy meal when served w/a scoop of frozen vanilla jogurt & made that a part of the recipe as a pers pref. (Time does not include chill time) *Enjoy* !

Recipe #366108

This is my final recipe to enter from *The Essential Caribbean Cookbook* edited by Heather Thomas & I feel like I'm ending a cruise thru the islands of the Caribbean. Ck out the 2 desserts I entered from this cookbook as either would be great as the finale of this meal. *Enjoy* !

Recipe #366096

Most of the desserts enjoyed on our recent cruise were so lovely to look at & even better to eat that I was surprised to discover that this spec occasion recipe from *Carnival Creations* by Cyrus Marfatia (Exec Chef of Carnival Cruise Lines) starts w/a boxed cake mix & is all about the presentation (which I confess I altered slightly). (Times were estimated. Cooling time is not included & cooking time does not include time to bake the cake per pkg directions.) *Enjoy* !
