Ageists, step to the side - who says that an old banana can't be the sweetest thing you've ever put in your mouth? With a luxe combination of bananas, butter, brown sugar and booze, this recipe proves the naysayers wrong. Dead wrong.
Eve Rillette (pronounced “EEv ree-YET”) is 5’1” of hard core opinion. She’s a little bit salty and a little bit sweet, usually at the same time. Though she is better at eating out than cooking, Eve is confident that she can dominate the kitchen. Loves all food including that out of a truck and especially at a first class restaurant. Always looking for the next culinary adventure, but not really interested in eating fried bugs no matter how adventurous that makes her look. Best known as a “Piece of Work with a Foul Mouth.”
