Cinnamon And Brown Sugar Plantains.

Cinnamon And Brown Sugar Plantains.

  I have a weakness for plantain, which means I can’t walk by the display at the grocery store and not put some in the shopping cart. A lot of times they go bad on the counter and I know this… but I just can’t help myself.  Yet again I had some on the counter […]
