How Do You Use Up Overripe Bananas? Here Are Some Suggestions!

July 29, 2015 12:04 pm

Bananas are quite finicky fruits, and if you don’t eat them right away they turn brown and too soft for many people’s tastes. Before you toss out those overripe bananas, however, try one of these delicious recipes that welcome that extra sweet flavor! And if you have a go-to recipe of your own, please share it!

While these cool, healthy treats are especially refreshing during the hot summer months, they taste just as delicious year-round. Simply blend a few overripe bananas with cocoa, vanilla, and coconut milk, then freeze it to create a handheld treat.

Give your browned bananas a second life with these gourmet quality parfaits. Greek yogurt creates the base, while cooking the sliced bananas with butter, apple juice, and toasted pecans imparts a sweet and robust flavor. If you’re serving this to adult dinner guests, substitute the apple juice for rum to create a more grown-up taste.

Banana Banana Bread [allrecipes.com]
This moist, dense bread contains so many bananas, it uses the word twice. It’s hearty enough to eat for breakfast, but it’s so sweet and delicious that it makes a great dessert, as well. Best of all, the riper the bananas, the better they work in this simple recipe.

Pair Your Locally Brewed Beer With Warm Pretzels at Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant

July 22, 2015 12:46 pm

Since its debut in November 1996, Iron Hill Brewery & Restaurant has become synonymous with good food and craft brews in the tri-state area. That's probably due to the fact that at each of Iron Hill's 10 locations, including the restaurant location in West Chester, beers are brewed on-site. The brewing process is a reflection of the skills and expertise of the restaurant's founders, Kevin Finn and Mark Edelson, two former homebrewers.

Available by the pint or the bottle, handcrafted brews rotate seasonally, appealing to even the most discerning beer aficionado. Pair your brew with a selection from Iron Hill's menu of contemporary American fare and pub grub. The menu spans cheese plates and housemade soups to chicken pot pie, hearth-baked pizzas, smoked pork sandwiches, and piled-high burgers. Served with a side of stone-ground mustard, the warm Bavarian pretzels are a must-have here!

How to Decorate Your Rental Home With Mirrors

July 15, 2015 12:05 pm

Mirrors work wonders in a rental space. They create a space to check your appearance before your dash out the door in the morning, they add light and size to any sized space, and they even act as a decor element. Here are just a few great places to add mirrors in your rental.

  • Above the nightstand. Add matching mirrors above your nightstands to create the illusion of extra depth in the bedroom.
  • Behind the dresser. If your dresser doesn’t come with an attached mirror, create a sort of vanity space of your own by hanging a decorative mirror behind it.
  • In a stairwell. If you have a set of stairs in your apartment, create a gallery wall of mismatched mirrors up the length of the staircase.
  • Across from a window. Maximize the light in a room by placing a large mirror directly across from a window.
  • On the kitchen cabinets. Cut mirror panes to fit right within the borders of your kitchen cabinets, then attach them with removable adhesive.
  • In a closet. Hang a full-length mirror on the back of a regular closet door to make it feel like a luxurious dressing room.
