Welcome to our second issue of's Recipe of the Week Newsletter!  Every week we will send you at least one new Caribbean recipe to try.  If you want to see something special, visit our forums and make a request!

As you can see, I'm a little late this week.  I still need to get into the habit of sending this out every week.   I promise I will be more attentive from now on.

This Week's Recipes:

Since it is the Christmas Season, I figured that it would be a perfect time for some Caribbean Christmas Recipes!  I've actually included several recipes this issue.  I've tried to select a variety of items that you could try out this year. 

If I didn't include a recipe you want, go to our forums and request it.  I have a whole collection of recipes that I am putting up piece by piece.  (The requested pieces get put up first!)  So ask away!  I might just have that recipe in my collection!
