Recipe: Black Beans and Plantains Breakfast BowlRecipes
I feel like there are people who like all the food on their plate to touch and people who like the different dishes to maintain their own space into carefully managed sections of the plate. I am firmly in the first camp and unsurprisingly a great fan of food in bowls for this very reason.

A Guide to Ordering & Drinking Cuban CoffeePeople
Stroll down Miami’s Calle Ocho and you’ll pass by any number of coffee windows, or ventanitas. The most famous one is at Versailles, but there’s no shortage on Little Havana’s main drag and elsewhere in Miami. And anywhere you can find a ventanita, you’re likely to find a crowd. That’s because drinking a café cubano is a social activity. Sure, the coffee is good (and sweet!

5 Souvenirs to (Legally) Bring Back from CubaPeople
So you want to bring home a little something to remember your trip to Cuba, but not sure what’s a good idea and what might be asking for trouble? Here’s how to bring a taste of the Cubana life home with you and avoid any airport questioning. A note: You can legally bring back $100 in cigars and/or Cuban rum, so choose wisely. If you ask Cubans why their cigars are superior, they’ll tell you it’s the tobacco, and the rich soil that makes for a better crop.

Recipe: Mango and Papaya Fruit SaladRecipes
Have you ever been subjected to “filler fruit” in a fruit salad? This wasn’t even a term I was aware of until a friend who served a truly gorgeous fruit salad at a brunch a while ago used the term to note the absence of melon and banana. Now, I know some people like these fruits in their salad, but I’m going to go out on a limb here and say, for the most part, that bananas and cantaloupe are the least desirable additions to the whole of it.

Recipe: Café con Leche PopsRecipes
You can’t talk about breakfast in Cuba without talking about coffee, a truth that still holds strong when you talk about breakfast in Miami. Be it cafecito or café con leche or any of the coffee drinks that fall in between, coffee is an important part of the morning meal, with café con leche, a drink of sweetened espresso and lots of steamed milk, being the most popular choice as the first drink of the day.

Un Cafecito, Por Favor: 5 Recipes to Help You Do Breakfast, Cuban-StyleRecipes
It always starts with coffee, doesn’t it? When you’re introduced to a new food, a new way of eating, a new culture and its cuisine, there are so many gateways, but for me it always seems to be coffee. Sooty and astringent in Turkey, café bonbóns in Spain, and then giant saucers of café con leche in a now-closed Cuban restaurant — La Rosita — that used to sit on Broadway and 108th.

Recipe: Cuban Medianoche SandwichesRecipes
It’s a very particular kind of morning we’re talking about when we say this is the Cuban sandwich you want for breakfast — specifically the kind that starts closer to noon than it does to nine, and one where the night before might’ve included lots of dancing. That, or those mornings when you wake up ravenous and ready for something truly hearty to eat. The Cuban medianoche is a close sibling to the more famous cubano.
