    Banana Coconut Cake

    You can never have too much dessert. At least that’s what I tell my husband when he comes home to yet *another* of my creations that the picky man won’t eat. 😉 We have a vacation coming up (yaaaaaay!!!), and my anticipation of our trip had me thinking of tropical flavors. In this case, a Banana Coconut Cake!

    Caramel Banana Cream Pie

    It’s still chilly and gloomy in Texas. The forecast keeps promising sun, and it just doesn’t happen. Being from the Midwest, I’m accustomed to having plenty of gloomy winter days, but I definitely prefer the sunshine. In addition to the gloom, I also have a headache and can’t seem to get warm. It’s one of those days that you just know that your immune system is about to be taken out. BUT…there’s pie. I’m about to wrap myself in a second blanket and have a slice of this Caramel Banana Cream Pie.

    Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls

    We always either have no bananas or too many bananas. Is that how it is with everyone? Either I have kids complaining that we are out of bananas (and they *really* wanted one), or we have a bunch on the counter that just get ignored (and browner by the day). You can never have too many recipes for the “too many bananas” scenario. Most of the time I make (The Best Ever) Banana Bread, but sometimes we get bored with it. The cure for banana bread boredom is most definitely these Banana Bread Cinnamon Rolls with Salted Caramel Cream Cheese Frosting!
