Flashback Friday

There is a post I’ve been wanting to bump to the front. It was one I did on the very early days of Chef It Yourself. It was kinda funny to go back and look at the way it was formatted. I’ve come a long way, baby.

Anydoo. There are several things about that post that I was, and still am, quite proud of. Good pictures, good content, good how-to directions for one of the most popular bites of Latin Caribbean cuisine. A staple really. Can be found all along the Caribbean islands, on to Panama, Colombia, Venezuela and Ecuador. As incredibly delicious and easy to make as these are, they seem daunting and intimidating if you’re not familiar with the main ingredient.

Since I’m not savvy enough to figure out how to bring that original post into this screen, I’m going to ask you to follow the link. The original post was titled Cut & Smash. I really hope you’ll like it as much as I do. I give you….drum-roll….. PATACONES!


Go forth and smash!

Cookingly yours,

  1. Did you try the links? There’s one if you click on Cut&Smash and another when you click on Patacones. Let me know if they’re not working/showing up.

  2. Well after seeing this…I guess I will not do a post, just refer to yours….
    We call them “Tostones”….and they are delicious, with salt or with a good “Mojo”.

    • Norma, I posted this a while back, we get different traffic AND you may have pointers I don’t. But feel free to refer to me, I’ve done that with recipes in the past. I’m putting up a yuca con mojo sometime this month…

    I love Patacones. I agree with Norma. My cuban friends call them Tostones, and when you add Mojo (garlic) on top of them, it just takes your taste buds to another level. Yum,yum,yum.
