An old staple recipe in Cayman is the johnnycake. Oh man, they're good. They're also mix-and-matchable. You can go savory or sweet by serving it with something like garlic butter or even honey. Johnnycakes are pretty easy to make too which sparks a big thumbs up from me. Thumbs up from Mrs. Herb Garden too who is currently recovering from two broken legs about 5 feet away. I got to Dallas last week and I have to leave again on Monday so I've been working her to exhaustion making sure she does all her exercises and rehab therapy. She calls me Nurse Ratched.
