Easy Trinidadian Corn Pie!


Easy Trini Corn Pie


Sofrito Lovers,

Have you ever had a Trinidadian Corn Pie?  If not, then it's time you did. Keep reading and pay attention; this post will change your life!

Despite its name, this dish isn't a dessert; it's a savory side dish.  You can pair it with any protein, salad, or use it in place of cornbread or a dinner roll.  I paired it with a spicy Jambalaya and it was a wonderful sweet contrast to the Cajun-spiced stew. 

Check out the recipe below from Cook Like A Jamaican and make yourself this amazing dish.  I can't wait to play around with this recipe!  Maybe next time, I'll add some grilled or sauteed jalapenos to the mix-my mouth is watering!

Go taste for yourself!  ¡Buen Provecho!

Korean Corn Dogs Loaded With Melted Cheese and Other Epic Fixin’s Arrive in NYC

The city may be on the verge of a wiener-on-a-stick revelation with the opening of Snowy Village

When I was a kid in Minneapolis, corn dogs loomed large. They were available only once a year at the Minnesota State Fair and considered one of its main attractions. Called “pronto pups,” these were hot dogs on a stick dipped in a sweet batter heavy with cornmeal and deep-fried to a golden brown. Later, when my family moved to Dallas, a similar product touted at the Texas State Fair was called “corny dogs.” Indeed, it’s a product with a national presence — the places claiming to have originated the corn dog are legion. Portland, Oregon; Muskogee, Oklahoma; Springfield, Illinois; and Dallas, Texas are all cities that make credible claims. Corn dogs were first sold on Coney Island in 1947, and you can still get them there.

Despite their association with Brooklyn beaches, good corn dogs are hard to come by in the city. Imitators of the Papaya King chain often use shorter hot dogs made of chicken, which are not only unsatisfyingly small but pale inside and nearly devoid of flavor. Predictably, restaurants more upscale than a hot dog stand have played with the format, making versions out of seafood, or wrapping them in waffles instead of cornmeal batter. Shake Shack even tried its hand and failed miserably.
