Good Eats Wednesday

Bananas, Bananas

After noveling about food, go figure...
I've got banana treats on the brain,
or my brain is going bananas, or something like that.
 Either way, bananas generally make their appearance
as the guest star in many of my favorite desserts.

Banana waffles in Amsterdam this spring. OMG... enough said.

Banana Macadamia Nut Fosters
from my all-time favorite restaurant Cafe Soriah in Eugene, Or.

The owner, Ibb, even comes out to prepare the Fosters in front of you.
The smell of melting butter, mixed with brown sugar, macadamia, banana liquor, fresh bananas,
whip cream, and vanilla ice cream... all prepared with a flame that could cinch your eyebrows and put
Benihana to shame. Pure heaven!

Let's not forget my grandma's Banana pudding,
and oh yes,
Banana Nut Bread.

Sorry the quality of photos is not the best.
My focus was to hurry up with these pics....
so I could dig in!

Bon appetit!
