How do you keep the bananas from turning brown when making ahead??

Hi there! We like to keep our bananas looking fresh by tossing them in a tablespoon of lemon juice! Enjoy!

Goodness Girls! This is a classic southern recipe! It fits the category perfectly; We are not trying for French pastry of the year; Lots of new cooks night not know how! Easy, cheap Good- use up extra bananas!

I have had this and helped make this in the past before. It is good.

Girls! Girls! Enough of the snarky comments-if you like the recipe, try it. If you don't, forget about it and go on about your business!

This hardly qualifies as a recipe-just something to do that has been around my entire life.

If you don't like the recipe because you have seen it all your life just don't comment! Those of us who are looking for simple and delicious recipes rather enjoy seeing them!!

when we select the recipe you must see the pic. and video how to make the food we want

Canada Tarts

The "butter tart" is considered one of Canada's quintessential desserts, and with good reason! All it takes is just one bite to understand what makes these so special. The pastry is super flaky, the filling is butter-rich, and together...they're amazing! Our recipe for Canada Tarts is one you'll want to add to your recipe box!
