Butter, brown sugar, vanilla, bananas. How crazy is it that those 4 ingredients can make such a delicious, simple treat? Bananas Foster is one of my dad's favorite desserts so this was another treat on Father's Day. What's that, you say? Father's Day was like, a month ago? Why yes, yes it was.
Let me explain. It goes something like this. I have been super busy. I started a little business called It works!, moved in a roommate and I've been having the best summer anyone could possibly have. We've had family in from Florida, my friend Cara, her husband Andrew and their two beautiful girls Lexi and Ava came by also. It's just been busy.
With that said and without further adieu, I give you my quick Bananas Foster. Serve this over vanilla ice cream for a simple, yet extremely decadent dessert.
