Banana Split Cake

Did the name catch your eye?

With good reason!

This is a delicious and fun recipe to serve. My mind must be on sweets because of Valentine’s Day coming up. At any rate, I haven’t made this recipe in a long time. I was first given it by a friend when my children were young and I was a member of the West Chicago Mother’s Club. We would all exchange recipes and childrearing ideas. We also had put on a yearly Halloween parade and run a well-child clinic once a month. It was a good group and I have alot of fond memories from that time.

Enjoy the recipe! I have also found it to be a good conversation starter.

I am not very tech savvy, although, to my credit, I have come a long way since starting this blog. It is being a fun and challenging journey. If I am ever late in getting a blog out it is either because I am having technical difficulties (which is really the biggest reason) or I am sick in bed.

Have a great day and by all means, Stay Warm!
