Can a classic be improved upon? I’m monkeying around with the bananas.
Can a classic be improved upon? It certainly can. There’s really not a change here; it’s just in the plateing of the dessert. Very seldom do I find a recipe that I don’t end up tweaking to suit our taste. How easy does puffed pastry, bananas, ice cream sound. Throw in some sugar, rum and banana liqueur and you have a new improved version of Bananas Foster. Just adding the puffed pastry to this dessert changes everything. It’s not just a bowl of ice cream with hot bananas poured over it, it becomes a Napoleon. Now doesn’t the word Napoleon sound delicious.
So it was 6:30 in the morning I was laying in bed after a good night’s sleep, which I had not had lately, thinking about what I wanted to do in the new year. (This was back in January — can you believe its March already.) Getting my knees in working condition should be top on my list since we are headed to the beach this summer and maybe, just maybe, checking into finishing what I started in culinary school 20+ years ago, and doing some yummy recipes for the blog.
Even though Valentine’s day is over, that’s no reason to not make this dessert for your special person. I am not going off the deep end with healthy, no carb, no sugar, no WHITE STUFF, recipes for the new year. I could make that promise to myself but it would be broken before the week ended. Everyone, if you are dieting or not, want recipes to serve friends and family for your special life events or just wanting something new to make for friends. Anybody can open a bag of veggies and rabbit out and you don’t need me to tell you how to open that bag.
