image004In Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass,” an all-new spectacular adventure featuring the unforgettable characters from Lewis Carroll’s beloved stories, Alice returns to the whimsical world of Underland to save her friend the Mad Hatter. Directed by James Bobin, who brings a unique vision to the spectacular world Tim Burton created on screen in “Alice in Wonderland,” the film is written by Linda Woolverton based on characters created by Lewis Carroll and produced by Joe Roth, Suzanne Todd and Jennifer Todd and Tim Burton with John G. Scotti serving as executive producer. “Alice Through the Looking Glass” reunites the all-star cast from the worldwide blockbuster phenomenon, including: Johnny Depp, Anne Hathaway, Mia Wasikowska, Matt Lucas and Helena Bonham Carter along with the voices of Alan Rickman, Stephen Fry, Michael Sheen and Timothy Spall. We are also introduced to several new characters: Zanik Hightopp (Rhys Ifans), the Mad Hatter’s father and Time himself (Sacha Baron Cohen), a peculiar creature who is part human, part clock.

Alice Kingsleigh (Wasikowska) has spent the past three years sailing the high seas. Upon her return to London, she comes across a magical looking glass and returns to the fantastical realm of Underland. Reuniting with her friends the White Rabbit, Absolem, the White Queen and the Cheshire Cat, Alice must save the Hatter and Underland itself, before time runs out. Presented in Digital 3D™, Real D 3D and IMAX® 3D, Disney’s “Alice Through the Looking Glass” opens in U.S. theaters on May 27, 2016.

P1130432I’ve been looking for a healthy alternative to sugary snacks and desserts for my family.  I was up late watching t.v. one night and I saw a product that caught my eye- Yonanas.  Yonanas is a machine that makes healthy, frozen treats that look and taste like soft serve ice cream in minutes.  Instead of sugar, cream, and other ingredients that are high in fat and sugar, Yonanas is made with nothing but frozen bananas and other frozen fruits.  Yes, I said bananas and other fruits.  I had to try this amazing machine for myself and it didn’t disappoint.
The machine is easy to use, only has a few parts, and therefore is also easy to clean.  You start off with frozen bananas.  What’s great is that the bananas need to be spotted brown and not yellow, green, or black.  Now I don’t have to worry about not eating all the bananas in my house fast enough.   When I only buy a banana or two, my kids end up wanted more.  But if I buy more, then they somehow decide they don’t feel like eating bananas that week and they start to turn brown.  Once those bananas get spotted brown, they are perfect for freezing for Yonanas so I am not wasting any more bananas.  I have a baggie in my freezer that is where we keep our frozen bananas.  When we are ready to make Yonanas we simply take a few out to defrost for about 10 minutes per the directions and we’re ready to go!

P1130512The machine is so simple (only has 1 button) that my children can use it (with supervision, of course).
Put a bowl in front of the machine, turn the machine on, and put a banana in the chute on top.
Use the plunger to push the banana down through the machine.
Next do the same with whatever other fruit or mix in you are using.  Follow with another banana, more fruit, etc. until you make as much as you want.  Stir it all together and that’s it!
P1130831 It’s the bananas that make it so creamy and like ice cream.  Don’t like bananas?  You can also use the machine to make sorbet with other frozen fruits.  Making sorbet with the Yonanas machine is just as delicious!
yonanasThere are so many options with Yonanas.  It includes a recipe book with lots of great ideas of combinations.  Below you can see 3 of the many combinations that we tried.  On top we made Yonanas with Nilla Wafers and bananas, on the bottom right we made Yonanas with Oreos and bananas, and on the bottom left we made Yonanas with mixed berries and bananas.  They were all delicious but when we mixed the Nilla Wafters version with the mixed berry version it was like eating a berry pie.  SO YUMMY!!!
P1130561I love that my children are eating lots more fruit now and we haven’t had any sugary ice cream since we started using the Yonanas.  If you are on Weight Watchers and only use fruit, your Yonanas creations will have ZERO POINTS!!!  Eat as much as you want!!!
yonanas2Yonanas is dishwasher safe but we’ve been using our daily so I have been hand washing it.  There are only a few parts to clean so cleanup is quick and easy.

Pecan Pie! In a cookie bar… Soo good! Take a look for our video eBooks that can be downloaded from the iBookstore: Ingredients: For the crust: 1 cup (250 mL) unsalted butter, softened ⅔ cup (150 mL) packed brown sugar 2⅔ cups (650 mL) all-purpose flour ½ tsp (2 mL) salt For the filling: ½ cup (125 mL) unsalted butter 1 cup (250 mL) packed brown sugar ⅓ cup (75 mL) honey or maple syrup, corn syrup 2 Tbsp (30 mL) 35% cream 2 cups (500 mL) chopped pecans Method: Preheat the oven to 350ºF (180ºC) Line a 9×13″cake pan with parchment paper, leaving enough for a 2-inch overhang on long sides. Cream together butter and brown sugar until fluffy. Add in the salt and flour mixing until crumbly. Press the crust into the parchment lined pan and bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. While the crust is baking, prepare the filling: combine butter, brown sugar, honey and 35% cream in a saucepan; stirring it over medium heat. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 1 minute, then stir in the chopped pecans. Immediately pour the pecan filling over the still hot crust; spreading it evenly to cover. Place the pan back into the oven and bake for an additional 20 minutes. Don’t over-bake! After baking allow the bars to fully cool in the pan before lifting out and cutting.
