The flavors, spices, and ingredients were ‘popping’ in my kitchen. Didn’t have to hop on a plane, bus or train to garner a Jamaican, Italian and Southern experience. With the aid of a few relatively inexpensive ingredients, I was able to turn out quite a mouth-watering dish.

Look ye here! Look ye here! I’ve the main ingredients for banana and oatmeal pancakes over here! It’s nothing new; but for me, whenever I enjoy a dish, I’ve no qualms in a repeat performance.
