Land of Milk and Honey

Cooking with Honey by Laurie Dotson

Oh Boy, Do I have a sweet-tooth tonight!  I made brownies last night with cinnamon applesauce and coffee. They surprisingly turned out yummy!  But tonight, I need to use up some bananas.  You know why? Overly ripe bananas are way to sweet to eat, but really good in smoothies and I have 20 “just right” bananas. I’ll never get threw them before they are black.  So mark my words, Never shop at Costco when your hungry.  Now I have bananas coming out my @$$ and sweet tooth to boot. So what’s a girl to do?  Googled Banana recipes and start cookin’.  haha!  Here’s a combination of a couple of recipes.  We loved this. I hope you do too:)
