I have wonderful memories of eating Bananas Foster in New Orleans, and as a dietitian, wanted to find a healthier version. I combined the best of two recipes and added my own tweaks to create this Southern treat. —Lisa Varner, Charleston, South Carolina

"This was delicious. My friends and family love this recipe and its very easy to make. I did triple the sauce recipe and added an extra banana. It served 5 of us. We each had a large bowl ( about 4 scoops of icecream each using a regular kitchen size icecream scooper not the large scoops you'd get in an icecream shop)."

"My sister-in-law loves Bananas Foster, so we brought it to dinner at a friend's home when she was also there. It turned out wonderful just as it is. We will certainly be enjoying it again. Thank you"

"My husband was wild for this dessert! I have always loved Bananas Foster; this had a little too much nutmeg for my own personal taste.

I will just cut it back next time. Yummy!"

"I had some extra bananas so decided to try this recipe. I followed the recipe except I eliminated the rum extract. It was very good! My husband and 12 year old son have requested this one again. Quick and easy to prepare with ingredients I had on hand."

"My husband and I both loved this recipe!! I will make it again and again I'm sure. I left out the rum and forgot to toast the pecans. It was still heavenly!"
