Secret Ingredient: Bean Desserts

Thursday, May 23rd, 2013

I admit, I was sceptical.  I mean, beans … in dessert? Seriously?  But they’re right, you can’t taste them!  They add fiber and protein and no one will guess they are in the recipe, provided you don’t spill the beans.

I love chocolate, and anything I can find to make desserts even a little bit healthier, I’m all for trying them. If you make one of these, let us know the results.

I’ve Got a Secret Fruit Salad Recipe

Wednesday, May 22nd, 2013

Secret Fruit Salad Recipe With all the yummy fruits in the stores, it’s hard to not over buy.  One of the best kept secrets is to soak berries and other fruits in water and white vinegar 10:1 solution to clean the the fruit. I’ve had soaked strawberries last over a week.

I use my salad spinner to make quick work of cleaning and rinsing all the fruit. Add white vinegar water 10:1 solution to the bowl.  Put all your fruit in the strainer and the strainer into the bowl portion of the spinner and soak for 15 minutes or more.

If the fruit is all floating to the top, you can put a plate or bowl on top to sink the fruit into the vinegar-water solution (optional.) After soaking the fruit, just raise the strainer part of the salad spinner up, rinse the fruit under the faucet and you’re done.

One of my favorite recipes to use all the fresh fruit is “I’ve Got a Secret Ingredient Fruit Salad.” So just what is the secret ingredient?

Pour over warm brownies.  Enjoy!
