Mango-Pineapple Smoothie
All we could taste was the banana. Won't make again.

Rick's Caribbean Ropa Vieja
The husband and I both really liked this dish. I made it on a cold rainy day for the second time last week, served it over a bowl of rice and it was a nice hardy meal for him after being out in the cold all day. I can understand why some people don't love this dish...it probably isn't for everyone but we both love coconut milk when used this way. If your a fan of coconut curries I think you'll like this too. (I did add a touch of curry powder well.) I think it has a nice balance of sweet and savory just be careful with the amount of sugar...I just eyeballed the measurement this time and I think it was a tad too much. I also used a bolder wine this time too which helped with a darker color; more brown than gray as some others have said.

Middle Eastern Turkey Dogs
These are very good and easy to prepare. I think they take a little longer to cook than the recipe states. I just check them after about 10 minutes with a meat thermometer and put them back in for a few more minutes if needed. I have made them several times and have made a few additions according to my own personal tastes but they are still very good when made as the recipe directs. I grate about 4 T of onion on a cheese grater and add that to the ground turkey (I think this gives them a little more moisture, I do this when I make meat balls and hamburgers too). I also add about 1/2 cup of wheat bulger (plumped in warm water then drained) this adds a little lightness to the turkey and I think makes them bit more authentic. I up the seasonings just a bit to compensate for the addition of the bulger. Very good, quick and healthy dish. One of my favs!
