Toe Shoes!

August 6, 2007

Ok, you have heard of toe-socks. They are socks that have individual slots for your toes, like gloves for your feet! Doesn’t each toe deserve it’s own place? I think so! Well this is taking that concept one step further! Check out Toe Shoes! They are called FiveFingers Classic and I think it’s a great new idea. Check them out!

Amazing! I think they look a little strange to some but I bet they are really comfortable. Here is a quote from the site:

The ultimate goal of any performance footwear is to help those who wear it reach new levels of achievement and personal satisfaction. That’s exactly what FiveFingers is designed to do.

No matter which FiveFingers model you choose, you’ll experience a level of performance and a sense of connectedness no other footwear can match. Vibram FiveFingers footwear acts like a second skin to offer a gecko-like grip over a variety of terrain. It protects bare feet from rocks, gravel, and sharp objects. And it promotes a natural walking motion, reducing impact on your knees, hips, and lower back.

Amazing New Dessert!

August 3, 2007

Check this out! I am totally going to have to try one of these! It looks amazing! How many times have you sat at home wishing you could have a dessert like this that is easy to make? Yep, here it is! The Crunchy Banana Pop!

Crunchy Banana Pops

couldn’t resist a bite

They might not have the most exciting name and they certainly aren’t going to be found on the dessert menus at any gourmet restaurants, but Crunchy Banana Pops are a fantastic summertime treat. These pops are made with frozen bananas that are coated in honey and rolled in puffed rice (a.k.a. Rice Krispies). The original recipe came from one of the first cookbooks I ever had and was in instant hit because it was something that I could make all by myself. In fact, this is a perfect recipe for kids or those who are looking for an extremely simple, but cool, snack.

Frozen bananas may not sound like much of a treat when you think about rich ice creams and decadent gelatos, but as they defrost them become just about as creamy as either – and significantly healthier for you. The honey is poured onto the frozen bananas and solidifies quickly, leaving a sweet and sticky, but not runny, outer coat. The puffed rice adds enough crunch to contrast perfectly with the creamy banana, making the treat perfectly balanced – although a drizzle of melted chocolate isn’t necessarily a bad idea either.

Start with ripe, but not overripe, bananas and plan at least an hour in advance so they have time to freeze. Once assembled, the banana pops can be eaten right away or put back into the freezer for storage for several days.
