Deb in Hawaii

Glad you enjoyed the book. Your banana is so simple and so delicious looking. I am a big fan of apple bananas any way I can get them but any banana when caramelized is amazing. Thanks for joining in. ;-)

This dessert is genius. Perfectly paired with the novel. I would love to try an apple banana some day!

Wendy Klik

I enjoyed the novel too and I know I would love this light, flavorful and healthy dessert.


The perfect combination Simona, and one that would be great with a scoop of vanilla ice cream! :) Hope to see you on your next trip out.

Hi Simona -- as usual your photos are mouth-watering! I'm afraid bananas are not my big thing but the dessert sounds great. You might be interested in another aspect of WWII in America. Although the Japanese-Americans by far got the worse treatment, Italians faced issues too. My grandparents were required to carry ID cards and their home radio was confiscated. Not pretty.

Simona Carini

You are welcome, Deb :)

Simona Carini

Thank you, Debra. All the fruit in Hawaii is amazing. I wish we could all fly there now! :)

Simona Carini

When fruit is fresh and flavorful, it needs a little to make a lovely dessert, Wendy :)

Simona Carini

If it were for me, Claudia, I'd pack right now :)

Simona Carini

Indeed, Cathy, Italian-Americans faced harassment during the war as well. I first learned about that some years ago. They were treated as potential spies: how sad.
