Good stuff, Kathy!

I like the flank steak recipe. It'd be cool to make some Floribbean-flavored Jerky.

The twinkies-in-aspic remind me of the congealed desserts from church functions when I was a kid.

Some of my favorite Florida luxuries are homemade citrus marmalades. I make one as a straight-up pink grapefruit flavor, and also a fancified ginger-jalapeno orange marmalade.

Have you ever tried loquat preserves? Pretty good.

I've got a huge Ruby Red grapefruit tree smack in the middle of my front yard. I like to juice 'em and add tangerine juice and drink that for breakfast during the winter. Tangerine marmalade is interesting too.

And if you've never had a pommelo you gotta try it. One good size pommelo can make nearly two quarts of "lemonade." I will sometimes make lemonade tea using a pommelo and a gallon of solar tea ... or even mix the juice and tea 1:1.

Bacon and Rice Creole

1 pound bacon
1 green bell pepper, diced
3 small onions, chopped
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
2 cups canned tomatoes
1 cup raw rice (not quick-cooking)

Simmer vegetables and spices in a saucepan. At the same time, fry the bacon. When bacon is done, remove from pan and crumble into small pieces. Drain off all but 3 tablespoons of fat, to which add the raw rice. Let rice brown lightly. Add the vegetables and bacon; let simmer over very low heat for 30 minutes. Check after 20 minutes to see if it is drying out. If so, add more tomatoes, or some water, or a combination of both.
