What I did differently in this recipe (the **’s):

I haven’t made this yet. I went to make it on Wednesday for Miss R’s snack at preschool and someone ate the bananas. So, I am saving this for next week. I will say that I probably wouldn’t have done anything different from the recipe.

Was it hard to make: I didn’t make it yet. But it looks fairly easy.

How long did it take me to make (compared to the recipe’s prep+total time): Didn’t make it. So don’t know.

Did BK and I like it: I think we will once I make it.

More importantly, did my kids like it: Well, Miss R said that she wouldn’t try it. But the other two are looking forward to me making this.

Will I make it again: Probably

Thoughts on the dish, after the fact: No thoughts right now.

The difficulty of the dish: Beginner
