When in San Juan Eat As The Greeks Do

When in San Juan Eat As The Greeks Do

Think, instead, about all the other cuisines on the island: tangy tzatziki, a perfect blend of Greek yogurt, chopped cucumbers and dill, served with hot pita bread. Or Italian wedding soup, thick with its little lamb and Parmesan meatballs and al dente pasta. Or delicious dim sum, in its seemingly infinite varieties. Or a taste of bouillabaisse that’s so authentically French you can feel the afternoon Marseilles sun on your face while you eat it.

    • Cranberry Sauce…Finally! November 26, 2015
      Originally posted on Hot, Cheap & Easy: I have never posted a cranberry sauce recipe before because frankly every time I tried I ended up with a lip-puckering nasty gloopy mess and we’ve just used lingonberry jam from IKEA instead. A happy surprise for the table So this year, I did not even tell my…
    • Sweet-Tart Homemade Lemonade (made entirely by the kids) August 21, 2015
      My son and niece (8 and 11 respectively) had made some sugar syrup* for me last week – they are pretty good with the stove these days and eager to see how things are done. I actually used most of it for adult beverages (mango-chile mojitos and passionfruit mojitos), but in return for their help, […]
    • Mango Mojitos With Ancho Chili Salt August 15, 2015
      It was another summer Friday in the neighborhood and that called for another festive cocktail. Riding high on the success of last session’s passionfruit mojitos, I decided to make mango mojitos. The drink itself followed much the same construction, but the mango was decidedly sweeter than the passionfruit, so I decided that it needed a […]
    • Savory Spicy Slow Cooker Moroccan Chicken August 3, 2015
      It is too hot for cooking, but the family’s gotta eat, so cook I must. So I have employed the slow cooker; it makes for tasty and tender meals and doesn’t heat up the kitchen. Here is my interpretation of Moroccan Chicken; it was a big success with everyone in the house (the spiciness is […]
