Bananas foster is a slightly old-fashioned (retro, of course!) dessert that consists of bananas that are cooked in a rich caramel sauce, doused in rum and set alight. It’s delicious and entertaining, and is generally served with vanilla ice cream. At Culinary Concoctions by Peabody, bananas foster are used the inspiration for a really kicked up Bananas Foster Bread Pudding. The bread pudding includes bananas, ... Read More »

If Clumbsy Cookie‘s Sweet and Spicy Candy Bar were a real product, I might be first in line to buy one because that would be the only thing easier than making a batch at home. The first step to making the candy bar is to make a batch of caramelized spicy peanuts, sweet with sugar and savory with ginger, paprika, cinnamon and curry. The nuts ... Read More »
