Bananas Foster

There is many ways to make this simple yet kind of elegant dessert. My simple home version doesn’t call for lighting pan of fire or anything like that.

But it smells wonderful and taste delicious. This famous New Orleans dessert is said to have been invented by Brennan’s Restaurant in the French Quarter back in 1951.

Brennan’s opened it’s doors back in 1946 but closed abruptly in 2013.
