Oh my, Oh my, I have found a new LOVE!

I wonder how many new loves I will find here in Costa Rica? {Besides my one and only "true" love, my honey}

A few nights ago, we had "Bananas Foster" at a restaurant for dessert. Oh my! Have you had that before????

Bananas for dessert, I can take it or leave it, but THIS, this was fantastic! For father's day I looked up the recipes on {another love of mine!}. Mary Dejour had the recipe posted and it received 5 stars out of 5 stars by 319 people. WOW! It can't be that good, can it????

I'm pleased to announce it is. It's drop to your knees, wipe the drool and lick your plate clean, "good". And the best part is it's so easy!!! So here's the recipe, courtsy of Mary Dejour. Thanks Mary! Go here to ALLRECIPES.)

So of course I can't leave a recipe alone. This is what I did differently.

1. I omitted the rum and used orange juice instead. It's only 3 teaspoons, so it won't affect it much.

2. I used chopped pecans instead of walnuts. However you don't need to use nuts at all.

3. I sliced the bananas instead of halving them.

4. I served it in margarita glasses which made it tastier of course. It's all about presentation!

5. Also I used caramel ice cream> {yum, I think I need to go dip into it again.}

Oh, that was delish!!!!

I doubled the recipe and tomorrow I will use it to pour over their French toast. It can't be worse than pouring syrup on them. At least this has bananas.

Sounds yummy. Perhaps I can entice the twins to eat bananas if they're covered with ice cream. :)
