Improvision is my greatest strength in cooking and my greatest weakness in baking.
I am not experienced enough to play with baking ingredients. So most of the time I have to force myself to follow the recipe.
The last few nights, Kit had gotten home and after eating supper asked what I had mmde for dinner.
He didn’t fuss when I told him I didn’t make dessert but he was bummed and I could tell.
Enter the improvised dessert. I wanted to use the Graham cracker crusts I bought a week before. Luckily, I had some dried cranberries too. I bought a box of banana cream pudding and chopped up frozen banana pieces that I had squirreled in the freezer.
Even though it was a little random and last minute it turned out pretty decent. The real banana bits helped trick my taste buds because I hate a really fake banana flavor.
Have you ever picked out flavors and thrown them together?
Did it work? Did it flop?
