4 Desserts for my overripe bananas!

I have a bunch of about 6 bananas sitting on my kitchen counter turning brown as I type. Last night while watching The Bachelorette (team JEF!!) I made myself a delicious banana split. It was simple…banana, vanilla ice cream, and melted choco chips on top! I bookmarked some tasty desserts that would be fun to try with my bananas. Here are 4 that are fairly simple and yummy.

I love The Leaning Tower! It is the old school banana split with stacked ice cream discs cut out with a cookie cutter! via

Banana Split Bites- YES! My kids would eat sprinkles on anything! via

Banana Split Pie. There is nothing more delicious than a frozen oreo cookie pie crust!

Banana Split French Toast. Good for a special Sunday breakfast. via

Coffee Alternative

I decided against another Venti Pike’s Place this afternoon. I’ve been going home from Starbucks with a “drunk off coffee” feeling lately.

So, I picked up a bottle of Mighty Mango NAKED drink. WOW, sooo delicious. Have you tried it yet?

Grilled Peach & Goat Cheese Pizza

Does sweet and savory pizza appeal to you? I would usually say “NO,” but these peach & goat cheese pizzas seriously caught my attention. The recipe looks super speedy and the result is something that I cannot wait to taste. Wouldn’t these be fun to make for dinner party appetizers. I imagine a whole bunch of mini grilled pizzas in different fruit flavors! via the fabulous

Ingredients (4 individual pizzas):
1 batch of pizza dough, divided into 4, 6-8″ rounds
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon honey
Pinch of cinnamon
Pinch of salt
Olive oil
2 peaches, sliced thin
2-4 ounces goat cheese
1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme

Preheat grill to high.
In small bowl whisk together vinegar, honey, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Carry dough, olive oil, peaches and goat cheese out to the grill.
Brush olive oil liberally on one side of each dough round. Place oil-side down on grill grates. Close lid and let cook for 1-2 minutes, or until large bubbles start to form.
Brush olive oil on top side and then flip crusts over.
Evenly distribute the peaches and goat cheese (in dollops) over the pizzas. Close grill lid, turn to low and let goat cheese met for 2-3 minutes.
Remove from grill, sprinkle with thyme and drizzle with balsamic-honey sauce. Cut into slices and serve immediately.

Strawberries are probably the most versatile fruit, don’t you think? I am not sure if they are my favorite…I think I actually prefer a sweet, crunchy nectarine – but I do admire the beauty of a strawberry!

They come in cute shapes!

They go well with afternoon tea/coffee.

…they make any dessert BETTER!

& make breakfast more nutritious.

They can be sophisticated.

…& even go with potato chips?

What is your favorite way to serve strawberries?

Watermelon Burgers With Cheese

photo via

I’ve seen grilled watermelon, but have you ever tried Watermelon Burgers? I am all for being adventurous and am dying to try this recipe on my husband on Saturday!

Time: 30 minutes

1 small watermelon

1/4 cup olive oil

1 tablespoon minced onion

Salt and black pepper

4 ounces mozzarella, Monterey Jack, Gruyère or other melting cheese, grated or sliced.

1. Heat a charcoal or gas grill to moderately high heat and put the rack about 4 inches from the flame. Cut the watermelon lengthwise, into halves or quarters, depending on the size of the melon. From each length, cut 11/2-inch-thick slices; remove the rind from each slice. If there are black seeds, use a fork to remove as many of them as you can without beating the flesh up too much.

2. Mix the olive oil with the onion and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Brush or rub the mixture all over the watermelon slices. Grill or broil for about 5 minutes on each side. The flesh should be lightly caramelized and dried out a bit. Sprinkle each slice with cheese, cover the grill and cook just until the cheese melts, about a minute.

3. Serve on buns, toast or hard rolls with the usual burger fixings.
