      Thank you, Virginia. It is yummy, at least I think so. Actually, hot candied banana is more traditional and more attractive, but I cannot make hot candy with oil and sugar, which is really skillful. By the way, I took your advice and made a hub on the modified clothes. If you'd like and have time, please go back, and give suggestions. Thanks, again.

      Thank you, at first, for loving it. Yeah, you can use only one pan, but pouring into it can make more evenly. Actually, I think cook is more about skill. If you do a lot cook and really like it, you can create recipe. Every recipe is created by someone. Right?

      Sounds sweet and yummy. But why would you not cook the bananas in the sauce? (See, I'm lazy and only want to use one pan.) Your picture looks so good!
