Bananas Foster
An ex-roommate of mine used to make these after a particularly boozy night out, although considering how flammable butter/alcohol is, it probably wasn't the safest cooking experiment. Nevertheless, this dessert is easy enough to make in less than five minutes. Just grab some butter, bananas, amaretto, and vanilla ice cream. You'll make your roommates very happy.

Banana "Ice Cream"
You scream, I scream, we all scream for…. Bananas? That’s not usually how that cheer goes but this “ice cream” recipe requires just 1 ingredient: bananas! Frozen and pureed bananas make for a delectable ice cream substitute with no added sugar or fat. This is completely raw and vegan too! Adding a touch of freshly grated nutmeg and salt heightens the banana flavors and makes this recipe ultra crave-worthy.To serve, I like to lightly sprinkle the ice cream with fleur de sel salt and serve along sliced regular bananas for a fancier presentation.

Bananas were not introduced to North America after the Civil War and some decades later, when widespread consumption took hold, New Orleans became a major center for banana imports from Central and South America.In 1951, Brennan’s owner Owen Brennan (the uncle of Ralph Brennan, the 3rd generation restaurateur and now-owner of Brennan’s restaurant today) asked his chef Paul Blangé and sister Ella to come up with a new dessert using bananas to name after his friend Richard Foster, the chairman of the New Orleans Crime Commission. At the time, Owen’s younger brother John (Ralph Brennan’s father,) was running “Brennan’s Processed Potato Company,” a produce company that had a surplus of bananas. What they came up with is now the world renowned Bananas Foster.The dramatic, flambéed result is now the most-ordered item on Brennan's menu. Thirty-five thousand pounds of bananas are sautéed each year in South American rum (but of course!) in preparation of the signature dessert.

Frozen Chocolate Bananas
There is something very satisfying about a recipe that uses only two ingredients. And when one of those ingredients is chocolate, you're sure to have a crowd-pleaser on your hands. Frozen bananas have a great texture and they are an excellent substitute for overprocessed, store-bought popsicles. These do require a bit of forward planning because it's best to use silicone molds, but if you don't want to take it that far, you can always take out a step and just dip halved bananas. The key to this recipe is fun: Melted chocolate is fun, mashing bananas is fun, and eating such a delectable treat on a stick is certainly fun. It doesn't hurt that it's delicious, too.
