Over the last few years I've pulled Rod into my world of all things Food Network. We enjoy watching chefs and everyday cooks create culinary treasures while we drool over every morsel we see. Rod will often say...."oohh, why don't you try to make that?" or "we shouldn't be watching this - it's making me hungry!!". It's actually become a dangerous hobby, b/c while watching an episode of Iron Chef America,Unwrapped, or Diner's, Drive-Ins, and Dives it's easy to get a "hankering" for something truly unhealthy at midnight. Not good.
Recently while watching an episode of DDD, Rod saw something that made his taste buds stand up and take notice. A chef/cook had preparing a homemade caramel sauce, tossed it with freshly sliced bananas, poured it over hot, thick slabs of french toast, and topped it with toasted pecans. Wow. All I thought was SUGAR SHOCK! Rod immediately piped up "that would be great on ice cream! Can you make that?". Hahaha! Well, a few nights ago I mixed a little of this and a little of that into a saute pan and voila - here you have it:
The trough of deliciousness....
