Reliable Recipe

A Smooth and Sweet  Treat!

March 2nd is Banana Cream Pie Day! So we want to make sure you are ready for the big day by sharing this delicious recipe.

Dessert is always a treat and this month seems to focus on chocolate (Valentine’s Day and Chocolate really go together), so I decided to share one of my favorite pie recipes that is chocolate free – Banana Creamy Pie.

This creamy meal topper is such a great addition to any dinner you serve friends and family… or even when you sneak a piece late at night!
