Recipe:Bananas Foster

This is a guaranteed, never-miss desert. Some people, cruder than I, have called it "the panty remover," for it is the ultimate way to end a home-cooked meal for someone you are courting. Measurements vary each time I make it, let common sense be your best guide.

You will need:

  • Bananas (1 per person)
  • Cocoa powder
  • Butter
  • Brown sugar
  • Cream
  • Cognac or rum
  • Vanilla ice cream
  • A match

Slice the bananas. In a pan, melt the butter. Put in the bananas, let them cook until the soften up a bit. Drizzle with cocoa powder and brown sugar. Pour in some cream--not too much, you don't want it to get runny. Wait until it gets bubbly. Now, here's the KEY STEP. Dim the lights. As dark as it can be while still letting you see. Pour in the booze. Light it on fire. Look nonchalant as your dinner date oohs and ahhs at your mad culinary skills. As soon as the flames go out, serve over ice cream.

Thank me in the morning.
