Category Archives: Spiritual Flavour
Seeing as I find cooking and sharing food a spiritual experience that affirms life, expresses love, and shares the riches that God (however you see the deity) has provided, I thought the occasional shared recipe would be appropriate for this blog space. Or maybe I just wanted to have somewhere to share popular recipes in a hurry. Either way, I’ve had a lot of requests for this one.
Every year since we met, my husband and I host a Cuban Independence Day Party some time towards the end of May. We’re not closet Commies (and, in fact, we’re not even using the modern date Cubans honour under Fidel Castro) – we just enjoy Cuban food, mojitos, and a chance to get together with our friends for a unique, fun occasion. Every year we do it a little differently based on our circumstances, with a core list of old standbys: rum balls, guava (or cheese) mini-empanadas, our signature guacamole, and Key lime pie.
Every year until now, that is.
