Good Ham Bean Soup
Very Good 4.3/5
(54 ratings)

Time to Pick a Bone
You can make a good ham and bean soup using just cubes of ham alone, but to get the best flavor you should use a ham bone. You can get your ham bone from the butcher, since they will often give them away or sell them very cheaply, or you can use a leftover bone from a ham that you have served for dinner.

If you are making a ham for dinner, then any leftover ham can be used in the soup as well. In fact, the best ham and bean soup recipes use both ham bones as well as cubes of ham.

Very Good 4.2/5

The batido is a smoothie made with milk and tropical fruits. For a classic Cuban drink, omit the lime juice and substitute frozen guanábana pulp for the mango. Guanábana is an exotic-tasting, rich, tart-sweet, white-fleshed fruit.

Silky Smooth White Icing
Very Good 4.2/5
(35 ratings)

Those who know me well will say that I am not a snob--except for when it comes to icing. I want the real stuff! To me cakes are ruined with fake whippy icings made with shortening.

Raspberry-Lemon Scones
Very Good 4.0/5
(50 ratings)

Scones are perfect for weekend house guests, hostess gifts, or picnics. Traditionally made with loads of butter and cream, mine use far less butter--and wheat flour.

Herb Roasted Garlic
Very Good 4.5/5
(37 ratings)

Garlic is good for more than keeping away vampires. It's also quite good for you and full of flavor. Roasting garlic mellows its flavor and gives it a creamy texture.
