  1. sorry bananas are a no-no but the orange caramel sauce sounds fabulous!

    1. Sherry, I get it, while I can and enjoy bananas, I run into banana overload very easily! But I have good news for the non-banana eaters, I also have a pear and pecan version of this delicious treat to share...

  2. My husband loves bananas. I bet he'd like this dessert. (I like bananas too)
