Go Bananas!

Today, I decided to try a new recipe from the food network website. I had some ripe bananas which were begging me to eat them, so I decided to got for a frozen banana sorbet. I also wanted to make caramel sauce, as I love to drizzle it on top. Here's what I used:
For the Banana sorbet:
2 ripe bananas
1 tbsp lemon concentrate ( The original recipe asks for fresh lemon, but I did not have any at home)
2 tbsp honey
Few peanuts for some texture.

I froze the bananas for about 3 hours, peeled them and processed in a blender with the lemon juice and honey until pureed  with some chunks left over. All I did was scooped it in to a bowl and ate it with some home made caramel sauce.

For the Caramel sauce:

1 cup Brown sugar
1 cup Half and Half
A pinch of salt
4 tbsp butter

I heated up all the ingredients together for about 15 minutes on medium flame, poured it in a jar after the sauce cooled a little and refrigerated it. It did not turn out with the texture I was expecting it to, but it still tastes pretty good. I will definitely try it again to perfect it. I will definitely drizzle it on top of some apples or some brownies. YUM!

The banana sorbet tastes good. The consistency was actually like ice cream; soft and creamy. And it will satisfy a sweet tooth. The caramel on top was a bit much for me--too sweet. Next time, I will drizzle some semi sweet chocolate and also add some walnuts for some texture. Also, I would peel the bananas before I freeze them.

Hope you will try it!

"Fall" in love!:)

This weekend has been hectic but amazing. I am getting ready to leave New Brunswick, NJ after visiting my little sister. We drove to Washington DC and the drive was breath taking. Beautiful colors everywhere! You definitely dont see anything like that in Texas. It was loads of fun, a birthday party for my cousin, met with a friend with school after a long time, and friends from college. It just reminds me how lucky I am!!!

Alive and Kickin'

I will be honest. I have'nt worked out in a while... Today was my first day working out after I don't know how long. I was sweating bullets. But the feeling of completed a workout even though you feel like you are going to die is pure elation.
My new kicks!
On a completely different note, I received several compliments on my new running shoes! I love the color- Neon red- like a stop sign! Stop and look at them!:D In a weird way, they inspire me to go work out more. Hopefully, I can keep going and achieve my fitness goals.

Have a great rest of the week.

P.S: I know the pictures from the previous post were blurry. Sorry about that. Wont happen again. I have to buy a good camera, but I can't afford one right now.

So.. Yay! This is my first post for my blog and I hope everybody reading it will enjoy it as much as I do writing it. To be honest, I am nervous and I feel like I don't know what I am doing, but I am equal amounts excited as well.
Today, I went shopping!!!:) Needed a little retail therapy. For people who don't know me, I love clearance racks. I prefer not paying full price for anything and I know a lot of people are with me on that.;) I love "The limited" store for the exact same reason. They have a lot of options in the sale pile. Here's what I bought today.
