I'm gaining weight just by READING the recipe.
I can't bring myself to do the reduced fat or reduced calorie thing when it comes to desserts.
I guess that's why I'm carrying around extra weight.

Sounds delicious to me, even without the chocolate sauce and the cherries I usually have on my own banana split.

Hea, wanted to respond to your comment on my last blog. That Russian soup that my son prepared for us (okroshka) is served cold. Maybe the cucumbers would taste better that way. But since I didn't like the soup anyway, I couldn't say for sure.

We don't get hurricanes here in the Midwest, but we do get tornados. This would be a good list for that too. But during tornado warnings, we go to the basement and that is where all of our spare (back-up) food is anyway. ~ jb///
