My grandmother grew up in the West Indies and immigrated to the US when she was a young adult. Now she, and several of her sisters and brothers live here in Florida. When they get together so do the tastes of their island home. Now, whenever I cook a Caribbean dish I am reminded of sitting on the floor of her kitchen as a child watching her cook.
This past week I decided to bring a little bit of island flavor into my home in the form of guava pastries. My daughter helped me make them, initially declining to try the guava, but she couldn't resist when they were done.
Need a great recipe? Try this one.
