Grilled Banana

Yes-you read that correct, grilled banana. Are you looking for a easy dessert that will impress, search no further. Grab those bananas sitting on your counter and throw them on the grill still in the peel.
Cook each side till is starts to get soft, but not mushy. Pull it off the grill, cut it open and add honey, whip cream, and cinnamon. Now chow down! Awesome right?

Jeni's Splendid Ice Cream-Ohio

I wasn't sure what to expect for Ohio, but great ice cream was not on my list of places to look into. When talking to many locals, they kept suggesting to go to Jeni's for ice cream. I'm thinking, really, its ice cream, what could be that exciting about it. Totally wrong! Try out- Cloverton (they use the cream from cows from a local farm that are grass fed) or Queen City Cayenne (Spicy ice cream!!) They have ice creams that are limited edition so it keeps the menu fresh like-absinthe & meringues or olive oil, saffron, orange & carmel!

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream that tasted like this!!!

Rise n 1-Dallas, Texas

I LOVE French food! I wasn't sure what I was getting myself into with this French place in Dallas, Texas, but the reviews were through the roof. Rise number 1 specializes in the soufflé. Let's start with my first course-the marshmallow soup. Amazing-a carrot based soup with mini cheese soufflé in the soup and then they pour a pesto on top.
For my dinner I picked the crab soufflé-a special for the evening. This just melted in my mouth. It was perfect because I didn't feel stuffed after I ate the whole thing. It was like the airiest crab cake that I ever had!
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for great French food. It was fresh and the place was very welcoming! Au revoir!
