Dear Readers, In honour of an impending Valentine’s Day, I…
I can’t wait to serve this up at my next dinner party. I’ll have everything pre-prepped in the fridge. Once we start dinner, I’ll discreetly place the dish in the oven and let the fragrance of the tangy orange and sweet bananas waft about, tempting and tantalizing my guests who’ll excitedly wonder, “Oh, what goodness awaits?” And then KAPOW! I’ll pop the Citrus-Baked Bananas out of the oven and wowza-wow everyone with such a lovely and delectable dessert.
