Today I went bananas and created a light but satisfying dessert which is a twist on the classic banana split. Since I used home made pear ice cream, I named my creation the 'Pear-ana Split'. Instead of traditional caramel sauce, I pureed warm dates with a little orange juice then finished the dish off with a dollop of whipped cream and my favorite new garnish, pomegranate arils.
In 2008 I co-founded the rescue group, Animal Advocates of North Texas (AANT) to help lost and abandoned animals find forever homes. My blog will regularly feature cats and dogs who are looking for homes and I would be delighted if you would share them with friends and family who might be considering adopting.
While animal rescue and photography are my main passions, I also enjoy creating chaos in the kitchen, developing new recipes on a daily basis. I'll be posting some of my culinary creations here and hope you enjoy browsing!
