    “Elena Ruz” Turkey Sandwich Recipe

    Greetings Everyone 🙂 !   To give you some background, the “Elena Ruz” Sandwich started in a restaurant called “El Carmelo” located in El Vedado, Havana, Cuba. It all began when a patron of “El Carmelo” named Elena Ruz Valdez-Fauli decided that she was tired of repetitously giving the odd and specific instructions on how to make her favorite sandwich.

    Abuelita’s Chicken Fricassee (Grandma’s Fricase de Pollo)

    Hola My Friends! I was thinking back on my childhood and how much I worshipped my grandmother’s cooking. As soon as I would get home from school I’d head straight for her kitchen. Of course, I was a chubby little girl eager to be her taste tester. My grandmother would spend hours working her magic in what I always believed was her favorite room in her house. Honestly, till this day I have not found Cuban food as good as hers. I wish I had her longer so that she could teach me her ways. Although she is not with us today, I honor her memory with my love for…
