Hello all. I just wanted to let my fellow cookbook dorks know that I have created a new "food community" called super_supper. Stop by and take a look. It's been very interesting so far. :)

rjmoya: Caribbean Braised Pork Chops

The second straight Caribbean-themed post by me! You're gonna read this and be like, "WTF, that's not gonna work" -- but it did. I even surprised myself, just slapping together things that were gonna go bad while I'm on vacation.

rjmoya: Caribbean Cornbread

About a month ago, I bought a six-pack of malta, a Caribbean soft drink, because I'd seen it a lot in Florida and wanted to try it. Here's some free advice: Don't. It is not suitable for human consumption on its own, much like buttermilk. But much like buttermilk, it can be used to make some pretty good baked items, as I discovered with this cornbread recipe.

rjmoya: Eggplant Parmesan

I've made this before, and it's always stringy, bitter, leathery, and overall not-good. But yesterday I finally figured it out and made the best I've ever done.

hand_in_heart: Yay!

This may come as a shock to other, more knowledgeable people, but I just found out that you can grill dough. As in flatbread/pizza-type dough. I am just floored by this. How cool! I can have homemade pizza even when it is too hot to heat the kitchen this summer!
