From Jimmy the Greek in Boca Raton comes the Greek traditional recipe of grilled octopus with lemon and oregano. To be honest, I think I’d rather go to the restaurant and get it rather than prepare it at home again, but if you want to learn to do it, here’s the recipe. (Note that they only keep the recipe online for about two weeks; after that, you must go to their archives to get a back copy.)
A more user-friendly recipe is the Chocolate coconut cupcakes. It’s one that I had to substitute because the department store where the reader remembers them from – Woodward & Lopthrop, in Washington, DC, is now gone.
There are several other great recipes in the Sun Sentinel today – pick up a copy or go online to the Sun Sentinel Food Page.
