Thanks to all of you that responded and gave me tips on making the perfect Johnny Cake. I spent Sunday morning trying to make better Johnny cakes. My fifth attempt in the past month went well, it was fun, and everything seems just great, the taste was ok, but the texture wasn’t very pretty. What the heck? But I’m sure you experienced ladies (and gents) can tell from the pictures above. Maybe I should just stick to “Fry Jack & Tortilla” which is much easier and tastier for me.
The real problem is whenever I cook anything; I put in tons of time and effort and gained very little. Even if some of my cooking tastes good, the next time I cook the same thing, the taste is very different. The truth is, I’m just not a good cook like my sister Becky. She is an amazing cook who knows that cooking is an art even though the food disappears. I love to eat food made by people like her. At my age, you would have thought that I would have developed my style by now!
