🍓🍌 CHOCO-BANANA ‘N STRAWBERRIES 🍌🍓

Ingredients:
4 bananas, peeled and cut in half
small container of strawberries, hulled
2 cups semi-sweet OR dark chocolate chips
1 cup chopped almonds OR roasted peanuts

Line a platter with waxed paper. Place bananas on the platter, insert a popsicle stick into the cut end of each half and then freeze for 15 minutes.
Place chocolate chips into a microwave-safe container and microwave for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring well after each minute. When chocolate is soft and shiny, beat it with a small spatula until it is smooth and has no more lumps.
Roll each banana half in the melted chocolate and then quickly roll in the nuts to evenly coat them.

Put the covered banana back onto the wax paper covered platter and freeze for another 30 minutes or until chocolate is set.
I rolled the strawberries in the chocolate as well and let them sit in the freezer for roughly 20 minutes to set up the chocolate. One of the bananas fell off the stick, so I simply sliced it into rounds! Makes for a very pretty presentation and the banana “bites” are a great way to get your chocolate fix without going too overboard on calories!!

Serve immediately or freeze in an airtight container for up to one week. ~ Enjoy!!

1 cup water warm
½ cup sugar
2 eggs
5 ½-6 cups all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons salt
7 tablespoons butter, divided
¼ cup buttermilk

Filling
½ cup butter, softened
1 ½ cups light brown sugar, packed
2 tablespoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch

Frosting
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
¼ cup butter, softened
1 cups powdered sugar
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
½ teaspoon salt

In the stand mixer bowl fitted with a dough hook; add water, sugar and yeast. mix to combine. Allow yeast to rise, 7 minutes.

meanwhile: melt 6 tablespoons of butter in a microwave safe bowl. Combine buttermilk, eggs and butter. Beat well until eggs are mixed.

Once yeast mixture is bubbly and frothy, add buttermilk mixture to bowl of stand mixer. Mix on low and add 4 cups of flour, one cup at a time. Add salt. Once flour is mixed in, add remaining flour slowly until dough becomes a ball and completely pulls away from the walls of the mixer. Your perfect dough ball will clean the bowl. Knead dough on medium-high for 5 minutes.

Lightly dust countertop with flour. Turn dough out onto countertop. Knead a few turns, shape dough into a ball.

Add 1 tablespoon butter to bowl and heat in microwave until melted. Place dough into bowl upside down, flip dough over and cover loosely with plastic wrap and drape bowl with a towel. Set bowl in a warm place in your kitchen. Allow dough to rise for 60-90 minutes until nearly doubled in size.

Meanwhile combine light brown sugar, cinnamon and corn starch in a medium bowl. Stir until combined. Set aside.

Starting at the top, tightly roll dough toward you, using the last 1” to seal roll. Cut dough roll in half and then cut those halves in half, giving you 4 pieces. Cut each of those pieces into 1/3rd. You will have 12 pieces.

Grease baking dishes. Place rolls in pans evenly spaced out, 2 1/2 inches apart. Make sure to put the end pieces upside down. Loosely cover with plastic wrap and drape a towel over pans. Set pans in a warm place and allow rolls to rise another 60-90 minutes until rolls have doubled in size and are touching.

Preheat oven 350°F.

Bake for approximately 20 minutes until golden brown.

Meanwhile, prepare frosting; add cream cheese and butter in a large mixing bowl. Beat with an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Add sugar, vanilla and salt. Beat until mixture is light and fluffy, about 5 minutes. Set aside.

Remove rolls from oven. Spread frosting over each pan of rolls. Allow to cool slightly.

Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade

Jalapeno Cucumber Lemonade
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4-6
 
A hint of heat adds an unexpected twist to this refreshing summertime favorite. The key to striking the right balance with recipe is to start with small amounts of jalapeno and gradually add more until you find just the right level of spice to suit your tastes. It’s a lot easier to add more than it is to adjust everything else to compensate for too much heat. This recipe is great on its own or mixed with vodka or tequila for an adults-only treat.

  • ¾ c. fresh lemon juice (6-8 medium lemons)
  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and cut into chunks

  • ⅓ c. honey, preferably local
  • Optional Garnishes:
  • Rosemary sprigs with lower leaves removed
  • Cucumber chunks or slices
  • Jalapeno chunks or slices
  • Lemon wedges
Instructions
  1. Add water, lemon juice, cucumber, jalapeno, and honey to a blender and blend until completely liquefied. Taste and add more jalapeno and/or honey, if desired. Blend again if necessary.
  2. Pour liquid through a fine mesh strainer to remove any larger particles and transfer mixture to a large pitcher. Place in refrigerator to chill for at least 1 hour before serving.
  3. To serve, pour over ice and garnish with slices of lemon, cucumber, and/or jalapeno. For a fancier presentation, thread chunks of cucumber and jalapeno onto sprigs of rosemary to garnish each glass.

Ingredients
  • 3 pounds red potatoes, washed, dried, and cut into quarters
  • ¾ c. mayonnaise

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dip

Fresh Fruit Salad with Honey-Yogurt Dip
 
The standout “star” in this flavorful fruit salad is the addition of Cotton Candy® grapes. This newer, super sweet variety delivers a very distinctive flavor worthy of its memory-invoking name. For the best presentation, do not add the strawberries to the salad until right before serving. Otherwise, the lighter-colored fruits will absorb their bright red color. To prevent browning, slice and add kiwi to the bowl right before serving, as well. Note: Cotton Candy® grapes are not a genetically modified food. Instead, their wonderful taste is the result of selective natural cross-breeding practices conducted over many years.
Ingredients
  • For the Yogurt Dip:
  • 1 c. plain, full-fat Greek yogurt
  • 2 T. honey
  • 1 t. ground cinnamon
  • For the Fruit Salad:
  • 1 c. seedless green grapes, washed and halved
  • 1 c. fresh pineapple, cut into chunks
  • 1 large ripe mango, peeled and cut into chunks
  • ¼ c. fresh pineapple juice
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 2 T. fresh lime juice
  • 2 T. fresh mint, finely chopped
  • Optional: 1 T. honey
  • 1 c. fresh strawberries, hulled and cut into chunks
  • 2 large fresh kiwi, peeled, halved, and sliced
Instructions
  1. Prepare yogurt dip by combining all ingredients in a medium bowl. Cover and place in refrigerator until ready to use.
  2. To assemble fruit salad, combine prepared grapes, pineapple, and mango in a large glass or other non-reactive bowl. Add pineapple juice, lime zest and juice, and mint to bowl and toss to combine.
  3. For additional sweetness, drizzle mixture with honey and gently stir to combine, if desired.
  4. Chill fruit mixture in refrigerator for at least one hour. Place prepared strawberries in a separate container to chill at the same time.
  5. Once chilled, remove fruit salad and strawberries from refrigerator and add strawberries and freshly sliced kiwi to the bowl. Gently stir to combine and serve immediately with honey-yogurt dip.
Notes
*If possible, use Cotton Candy® green grapes
**zest lime before juicing

Stop Comparing Other People’s Outsides to Your Inside

Jennifer C Peterson is author of the wonderful self-help book titled “STOP IT! Don’t Compare Your Insides with Other People’s Outsides”. The book is available as a paperback or Kindle e-book on Amazon. The short book is less than 100 pages in length, but very powerful. The idea is that the feelings you have inside are often times based on what you see on the outside of other people.

You compare yourself to the clothes, skin, hair, body, wealth and possessions of another person. It seems to be the great human pastime to “beat yourself up” because you don’t measure up to someone else … at least in your eyes. The opposite also happens. You have probably caught yourself judging someone else negatively, inflating your ego by bringing someone else down. When you judge yourself as inferior or superior to others, no one wins. As Peterson puts it…

“None of that will ever make you happy. It’s time to STOP IT and find out what an incredible person you are.”

The author knows a lot about playing the comparison game. She describes about how she went “from living a destructive life with feelings of worthlessness” to realizing she was incredible in many ways. Once she enjoyed the realization that she could be anything she wanted to be, she stopped comparing herself to others, and is now, in her own words, “living the life of my dreams!”

Think about someone right now that you feel inferior to. What is that person like? What do they look like? What are their possessions? Think about why you feel like they are better than you in some particular way. Does it make any sense to compare the two of you against each other? What if you had the hair, the body, the money or the whatever it is that you are envious about?

Would that truly make you happy? Probably not.

When you compare yourself to someone else and then eventually outperform that individual in some way, you can’t be truly satisfied. People that spend their lives trying to measure up to others will consistently find some area of their lives to feel inferior about. A person who is envies someone’s wealth and becomes wealthy themselves, usually just finds something else to envy.

You can use what’s on your inside, your feelings and emotions, to empower you, or to make you feel inferior to others. The choice is yours. Stop comparing your insides, how you feel, with other people’s outsides, their possessions, physical traits and abilities. Comparing yourself to others is fruitless, because there is truly no one on the planet just like you. You are unique, talented, worthwhile and amazing in so many ways. Celebrate you, and stop disrespecting the incredible person you are by comparing yourself to others, either positively or negatively.

Can you believe that just a dab of toothpaste can remove scuff marks from your favorite pair of leather shoes? It’s simply amazing! Just dab a little on the scuff marks, rub the area with a soft cloth, and then wipe clean with a damp cloth. You will make them look like new!

Cleans Piano Keys
Are the keys on your old piano looking yellow and dingy? Make them look brighter by cleaning them up with some toothpaste on a soft toothbrush, then after a little scrubbing, wipe them down with a damp cloth. This only makes perfect sense, since the little ivories are essentially elephants teeth. This trick also works well on modern pianos even though their keys are covered with plastic rather than the real stuff!

Cleans tennis shoes…the rubber part
Try a little of the non-gel variety on one of your old toothbrushes to clean and whiten the rubber sides of your tennis shoes! After scrubbing them, take a damp cloth to clean it off and they’ll look almost new!

Clean “Gunk” Off Your Iron
Non-gel toothpastes contain a mild abrasive, which is just what you need to scrub the “gunk” off the plate of your iron. Apply it to your iron while its cool and scrub with a rag, then rinse well.

Make Your Diamond Ring Shine
Next time your brushing your teeth, take your toothbrush and run it over your diamond ring to make it sparkle! Clean off any residue with a damp cloth.

Clean Your Watch Band
A little toothpaste on an old toothbrush will allow you to scrub all of the dirt away from your watch band. Rinse carefully so the watch don’t get water in it. Polish with a soft cloth.

Baby Bottle Deodorizer
Are your baby’s bottles starting to smell like sour milk? Toothpaste works well to remove this odor! Just put a little bit on the bottle brush and start scrubbing. Be sure to rinse the bottle out well.

Goggles Defogger
Wearing fogged-up goggles is not only frustrating but can be dangerous as well. To prevent this, coat the goggles with toothpaste and wipe off.

Mirror Defogger
Ouch! No wonder you cut yourself shaving…a fogged-up bathroom mirror certainly prevents you from seeing your face clearly. Next time (before you shave and cut yourself) spread a little non-gel toothpaste onto the mirror and wipe it off before stepping into the shower. When you’re done with your shower and ready to shave, the mirror won’t be fogged up!

Shines Chrome
You can find many commercial cleaners containing a very fine abrasive that are designed to make your chrome shine, but if you don’t happen to have one of these cleaners handy, try a little non-gel toothpaste instead (which also contains a mild abrasive) It will work just as good. Smear it on and polish the chrome piece with a soft, dry cloth.

Cleans Your Bathroom Sink, Destroys Odors From Drain
Non-gel toothpastes work just as good as any other bathroom cleaner when it comes to cleaning out your sink. How handy can you get, it’s sitting right there at your fingertips so why not use it? OR…if your family is like mine, they drop gobs of it in the sink while brushing their teeth so just take a sponge or cloth and make good use of their waste! Rinse it out and see it shine! An additional bonus even! This will also destroy any odors coming from down inside the drain.

Cleans Crayon Marks Off Walls
Did those crayon-toting angels of yours get creative and draw some fancy artwork on your wall? Don’t worry. Just grab a tube, a rag or scrub brush, and dab a little on the wall and start scrubbing. The fine abrasive in the toothpaste will take away the crayon marks every time. Rinse the wall with water.

Hang Posters on the wall Just put a little dab in each corner of the poster and a few in between on the edges. Put your poster up and it will stick like magic. When you get ready to remove it will come off easy with no holes.

Fill in holes in the wall
Ugly nail holes showing? Just a little white toothpaste will fill in the hole instantly. Let it dry and you can paint over it.

Get All The Toothpaste That You Paid For
When the tube is almost empty place in warm water for a few minutes while you shower. Lay it on the counter or on the edge of the sink, using your toothbrush handle push the warm toothpaste to the top of the tube.

Air Freshener For Your Car
Squeeze a small amount of toothpaste onto a the center of a paper towel. Roll or fold the towel up. Place under the seat. When the car is left in the warm sunshine it will heat up and the toothpaste will release a nice soft mint smell into your car. Replace as needed.

Make your own toothpaste for making your teeth whiter
This is so easy and will save you money. Mix Baking Soda and Hydrogen Peroxide blend into a paste. Add a few drops of peppermint or spearmint extract to flavor to your desired taste. It will make your teeth sparkle and will help whiting them at the same time.

Now that you’ve probably gone through a couple of tubes like us, we’ll see you in the toothpaste aisle!
