"For my li'l man, Lorenzo, we cut a banana on the bias and serve it with Nutella. Do this right before bath time, otherwise you'll find Nutella in the most insane places: hair, banisters, ceiling fans." — Jeff Mauro

"I make 3-ingredient pancakes all the time: Mash 1 banana; mix with 1 tablespoon peanut butter and 1 beaten egg. Spray a hot nonstick pan with cooking spray; add tablespoonfuls of the mixture and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side. Top with banana slices." — Kelsey Nixon
