    Hi… greetings from Long Island… I just wanted you to know tha your cookbook was the first I bought after my hubby Jack and I got married June 4th! I have made several of your recipes (love um), while I am Puerto Rican, Jack is Italian… we both are trying to marry our cultures and learn how to make both PR and Italian creations. We love your recipes, simple & delish!!! a perfect combo for us new cooks. I have been reading your cook book as if it’s a novel.. Jack laughs, your stories make me long for a visit to PR. Thank you Daisey. Have a wonderful holiday.
    Much Love,
    Kathy & Jack

    Hola Kathy & Jack,

    Thanks so much for sharing your story, and to relating to the Daisy experience through tthe show and the book. I am often fond of saying, that since this is a country where EVERYBODY came from somewhere else, we all share a common experience as “immigrants”, so my stories resonate amonf all ethnic cultures to some degree.
    I am also married to a wonderful Italian man (I celebrated my 25th anniversary last Wednesday!), and I can tell you that it has been a wonderful experience for us to share both our cultures to enrichen our children’s experience.
    I can’t wait til you visit La Isla! It truly is paradise on earth. Have a blessed holiday, and make sure you drop by soon!

    Hasta pronto,

    Hi Carmen,

    To prepare an octopus for eating, first remove beak, eyes and internal organs. With a sharp knife cut off head below the eyes. The ‘beak’ (which is the mouth) will be in the center of the tentacles. Push upwards with finger placed underneath, remove and discard. If octopus is big, tenderize by beating with a mallet, of hanging (tentacles down) overnight. Some fish vendors do the work for the customer by giving octopus a good going over in a mixer so it is already tenderized with purchased. Cut into pieces or leave whole if tiny. Slow cooking is needed, except in the case of baby octopus.
    Hope this helps!
