This was the end-all, be-all dessert for me and my sisters growing up. With only three ingredients, it's the simplest dish around, but the flavors do something incredible when they meld together. Use the best quality cream you can find—it makes a difference. —Posie (Harwood) Brien

  • Serves 2
  • 2 bananas
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 cup heavy cream (the best quality you can find)
In This Recipe
  1. Slice the bananas in 1/2-inch-thick chunks. Divide the banana slices between two bowls. Crumble the brown sugar evenly over each bowl. Pour 1/2 cup of cream over each bowl. Eat!

I like warm homemade bread slathered with fresh raw milk butter, ice cream in all seasons, the smell of garlic in olive oil, and sugar snap peas fresh off the vine.
