STEWED PIGEON PEAS WITH GREEN PLANTAIN DUMPLINGS – GANDULES GUISADOS CON BOLLITOS DE PLATANOS VERDES
Our Creative Cooking Crew took December 2013 off for the holidays.
Here we are starting 2014 with a great challenge: Let’s tackle some internationally known ethnic dishes – and present them in new, creative and exciting ways. The star this month is “dumplings“.
Creative Cooking Crew’s theme for this month is to bring an appetizer to a Thanksgiving dinner party which you have been invited to.
This month’s Creative Cooking Crew’s challenge is cooking with spirits. This was an easy challenge for me because as the holidays approach, I start to make my “coquito” Puerto Rican eggnog.

On September 12th I will put names of the people who have commented on my blog in a hat and will have my neighbor pick two names. I will immediately inform you so that we may give you your pass.
Don’t forget to leave a comment and I hope to see you there!
This month’s Creative Cooking Crew theme was either a fruit or vegetable presented three different ways.
I decided on fruit…that gorgeous cucumber…refreshing, low cal and delicious.
