If you haven’t heard of banoffee pie, you need to take some time to get to know it! It’s a fantastic British dessert that combines a tea cookie crust with a rich toffee filling, bananas and fresh whipped cream!
Since I came back from studying abroad in England, I have longed to try banoffee pie. I actually didn’t ever eat any while I was across the pond, but I did get to enjoy some delicious sweets.

Oh, and What Not to Wear’s Clinton Kelly is also on the show. I love his personality!
First of all, welcome to my new blog: Fruitful.
I am a foodie, or at least I would like to think I’m one. I love to cook, bake, read food blogs, eat out, find new recipes and enjoy exploring food with the people I love.
I hope to use this blog to share fun recipes and what’s going on in my kitchen, as well as cover hot food spots in Northwest Arkansas and how you can make others lives fruitful by featuring charities and ministries that fill others’ plates.
