    I LOVE it and it was one of the first dominican recipes I attempted. It is now an integral part of our Holy Week celebrations here in Canada - and in our extended families now too.

    I like it in moderation but only when made with semi-skimmed milk instead of evaporated milk and a fraction of the sugar.

    It's also quite good when made with white beans (lima or butter beans) instead of red beans. In fact the first time I tasted habichuelas con dulce it was the white bean version.

    It may not be a unique Dominican concoction through. I've heard it may be a descendant of a Turkish dessert called ashure, possibly brought over by Middle Eastern immigrants along with kipe and tipili.

    The legend around it says that the recipe would first come to this country at the hands of a French colonial refugee from the western part of the island who ran by the name of Dorvo Soulastre. What I have found odd about the concept is that the dish is all but absent over there.

    Tried it Dominican style - no me gusta - then my Haitian friend convinced me to try hers - I was polite

    This, along with mamajuana. That is the Devils' Silly Juice. Whoever makes that disgusting crap deserves a stake driven through his heart.

    That's what I want for Easter.
