Creamed Spinach from Tropical Acres – and Best Cheesecake You Ever Had Recipes in Sun Sentinel

In my column You Asked for It in the Sun Sentinel this week, check out the recipe for Creamed Spinach from Tropical Acres (circa 1949!) steakhouse in Dania. It’s “sin-sational!”

The recipe from a former co-worker’s award-winning cheesecake, The Best Cheesecake You Ever Had, also is here today.

(To see the recipes, click on the left-hand sidebar: RELATED.)

Go here to get to the article.

    Where, exactly, is the “right-hand sidebar RELATED” containing the Creamed Spinach recipe?

    On the right-hand sidebar I see “Search,” an ad, “recent topics,” “where I click,” “southern food,” “restaurants and related sites,” and “web site credits.”

    No recipes.

    First follow the link she gives to the Sun Sentinel website.

    The hotlink wasn’t working in the first version of this post; so South Ocean was all fixed up once I corrected that.
    That said, the Sun Sentinel could make it easier if they linked the recipes off the story rather than put them in a sidebar. Note that the recipes only stay up a couple of weeks, then are removed and added to the archive.
