Many are the signature tastes of my home island of St. Croix that put my mind, body, and soul squarely back on island time; that take all the stress and strife of stateside living off my back and 100% out of my consciousness.
Of all those cherished tastes, though, none comes close to that first Johnny Cake enjoyed back on home soil.
Flaky, filling, warm, and wonderful, a great Johnny Cake makes all the difference for me. This one, that I enjoyed this morning, was even better than usual since I got to enjoy it on Shoys Beach with my wife, my kids, my brother, Patrick, his wife, and their kids.
Cheers from St. Croix!
