My name is Jill and I am a TWD and CEiMB slacker.

I know you've probably come her looking for a Plum Tart on Tuesday or some Aromatic Noodles with Lime Peanut Sauce today.  (Or your browser made a dangerously wrong turn somewhere and you're looking at this wondering WTH happened and how do I get out of here?)

I'd like to be able to tell you that I've been doing something important like grilling Sonia Sotomayer or relieving stress with my fellow SSA workers in Arizona, but I've just been doing really fun stuff like planning a baby shower for this little peanut.

Plus, I'm sorry to say that neither of this weeks recipes sparked anything in me so you'll have to go elsewhere if you're dying to know about the tart and the noodles.

I will give you some links for an other-worldly dessert I made this weekend.  I've long extolled the brilliance that comes from my fellow food bloggers and this week I offer proof.  Unfortunately I don't have any pictures of my finished product.  I served it up to my guests and by the time I went to get the camera everyone was licking their bowl.  No respect.

It all started when I saw this recipe for Bananas 'n' Cream Bundt Cake on the Taste of Home website.  I'm always looking for ways to use the last few bananas that are always left over at the end of the week and knew I'd be making it at some point.

THEN.....last week, Our Best Bites published this masterpiece.....Caramelized Banana Ice Cream (which didn't require a custard....HOLLA!) that also included a recipe for Buttermilk Caramel Sauce.  Are you kidding me?  If nothing else, make the caramel sauce and eat it straight from the pan.   You'll thank me. 

All this put together may sound like banana overload (not that there's anything wrong with that) but it was f.a.b.u.l.o.u.s.   I'm planning on making this again this weekend to take to a friends house.  He's offered to make us his famous grilled chicken and I'm bringing dessert.  I'll try to get some pictures then.

So apologies are in order to the TWD and CEiMB gang....I'll be back next week....but you'll forgive me if you make this dessert!
