Yonanas: Product Review

What?  Ice cream made out of fruit?  It can't BE!

You are right.  Infomercials irritate me because they are ALWAYS too good to be true.  I'm still a sucker for them and love watching the commercials.  Sopakawa pillow anyone?

However, this Yonanas contraption is pretty awesome.  It boasts that it turns frozen bananas and other frozen fruit into soft-serve ice cream. They say it does not taste like bananas.  While that is not exactly true, I found the consistiency to be incredibly creamy and soft-serve like, and the taste to be very, very good (but still tastes kind of like bananas).  My cousin in Chicago was gifted one of these for her little girl that does not like to eat fruits and veggies.

We make a recipe with bananas and mixed berries.  It was tasty!  You can mix in peanut butter and call it PB & J.  I bet that would have been good too.  

Check out Yonanas here.

Have you tried Yonanas?

Hi Andrew!

Every morning before I get out of bed, I check my phone.  Perhaps this is a bad habit, but it usually wakes me up.  Something fun, something exciting, something irritating.  It gets my blood pumping.  Yoga may be a better option...

Today, I saw the most exciting email from Twitter.

"Andrew Zimmern is now following you on Twitter."

Jolt!  Who?  ME?  YES!  Hi Andrew!!  I am a huge fan!!!!!  How did you find me?  This is a crazy digital world we live in and Andrew Zimmern is following ME!  Holy Wow!  Thrill of thrills.

Andrew...need a Toledo-based food blogger??  :)  I will eat ANYTHING (obviously...based on this blog).  The only thing I love more than eating is writing about it (or maybe taking photos of it).

Follow Andrew @andrewzimmern

Inspirational Video

Check out this video - I saw it on Pinterest this week. This is the song "Chariots of Fire" by Vangelis, or, the song that plays every time someone does something incredibly awesome...in slow motion. HA! The video is so ridiculous, the cig on the piano, the dramatic exhale...LOVE IT! Great music, though. That's for sure.
