    This site is really awesome! I’m so happy that I stumbled across it. Best of all, you’re still updating it regularly. Some start sites with good intentions, but then they get lazy and stop posting.

    Can’t wait for more recipes.

    Just wanted to clear up any possible food identification cultural issues. The coconut milk in the above platanos asados con coco recipe: does that refer to the coconut water in the coconut, or the milk-colored stuff that is sold as coconut milk in many American grocery stores?

    –Man with a head as hard as a coconut.
