Summer Fruit Salad

This one's for Cindy and Jane;-)

Cooool Caribbean Paella

Baby, it's hot out there!  Here's a recipe that, despite the fact you have to use the stove, will keep you cool.  You're cold, you say?  No problem!  This fresh-tasting rice, bean, and shrimp dish is perfect at any temperature.
