Cuban Beans and Rice
Excellent recipe. Simple and fast, filling and good for you. A sweet undertone that belies the simple recipe. Vegan safe for your vegetarian friends. Reminded me of being in the Cuban section of Miami. Needs a bit more water than the recipe calls for. I make it a little like risotto and add the water a little at a time. Spice it up if you like it hot. Add sausage and shrimp for a dish that would be much like Jambalaya.

Pork with Peach and Black Bean Salsa
This is SO good. I was skeptical but the flavors blend so delicately, the sauce is fabulous. I used mild salsa but you could go with medium if you wanted to give a little more kick, or hot if you live in the southwest. The sweetness from the peaches balances out the heat. Chicken broth substitutes well for the beer, raise it to a 1/2 cup if you want a thinner sauce (my preference). I also mixed fresh mint half and half with the cilantro. This dish is simple and fast, took me just under 40 minutes start to finish. Goes great with grilled corn and makes a super dish for the RV.

Homemade Wine
This recipe is super. Follow the directions just like you see them here and you'll come out with a decent blush. It may not win any awards at a tasting party but it's better than a box wine. One small suggestion. After five weeks the balloon may still be inflated, that's not a big problem. Do use a piece of tubing to siphon off the wine from the sediment in the bottom. Try not to disturb the sediment when you do that. I use two clean 2-liter pop bottles instead of a gallon jug. It's a way to reuse bottles we'd normally throw away. And the sediment packs itself down in the ridges in the bottom which makes siphoning a lot easier.
