Honey Whiskey Fried Bananas

Boy, bananas have really been a topic around here lately! One of the meds the doctor gave Kenny was potassium tablets and unfortunately they didn’t agree with him or at least that was our version. Doctors disagree saying that they never heard of these pills causing swelling. So with that, the doc told him to eat as many bananas as possible to get the potassium….Okay so now bananas are a staple here in our abode!

Look like they have a bonnet on.

Within the last couple of weeks I heard on TV to wrap the banana stems with plastic wrap to keep them from spoiling so quickly. Then again soon after, I read the same thing on the internet. I had already tried it and have found that it does work although I did have one bad incident and I think it was my own damn fault! I decided to wrap the plastic a little too tight securing it with a rubber band and the banana skins split, OOPS! I also heard that stores were starting to sell them with the stems already wrapped, but I had yet to see that done here until a trip to the grocery store just this week and there they were, sitting there so pretty with their little plastic hats on!


weather stck,book 006On a recent excursion to the thrift store, I came across a new collection to my cookbooks called The Sea Cook by Sallie Townsend and Virginia Ericson dated 1968. It’s a cookbook of all different and simple ways to prepare food on your boat using a lot of canned meats and vegetables (something I try to avoid like running a boat onto a reef!) One of my first thoughts was, where was this book when I worked on a shrimp boat with my ex, it could have made life a little simpler! While skimming through the pages, I came upon a recipe for Bananas au Rhum and although I had heard of this, never tried it before, until today! Okay dilemma time, not having any rum in the house, I decided to use honey whiskey in lieu of the rum and brown sugar that the recipe called for. Oh my, husband and I are now addicted and will be having these again atop some nice homemade vanilla ice cream or over a nice piece of pound cake; it was stupendous to say the least!

You really should try this...Yummmmy!

Creamy Vanilla And Strawberry Frozen Yogurt

As some of you know, a couple of weeks ago I picked up an older yogurt maker and I have to say that I am not a big fan of just plain yogurt! I ended up with it sitting in my frig trying to figure out what to do with the rest of it after I ran out of strawberries to top it off. Husband doesn’t care for yogurt at all but I think now I might be able to remedy that situation. My Country Living Magazine had all kinds of different ways to spruce up plain frozen yogurt and after making my version, I can’t wait to experiment with more ways to make this treat as husband even thought it was pretty good and very tasty. It still had a little of the sourness that good yogurt has, but now I know exactly what is in it versus the store bought stuff! Of course you will need some kind of ice cream maker for the freezing part to make it easy on yourself or you can do it the old fashion way by freezing it and after a little while in the freezer, take it out, stir and refreeze.

This is really good yogurt!

  • 1 cup half and half
  • ⅓ cup sugar
  • 2 oz fresh honey
  • ¾ tsp French vanilla extract
  • ⅛ teas kosher salt

  2. Place chopped berries in a saucepan with the ⅛ cup of sugar over medium-high heat and cook until fruit has softened, about 6-8 minutes; cool completely.
  3. Pour yogurt mixture into your electric ice cream maker bowl and freeze according to manufacturer's instructions, adding strawberries during the last few minutes of freezing time or fold into frozen mixture before placing in your freezer.
