  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and deveined, optional
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 clove garlic
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
INSTRUCTIONS

Hawaiian French Toast


Hawaiian French Toast

YIELD: one 9-by-9-inch pan, 9 generous squares PREP TIME: 5 minutes COOK TIME: 30 minutes TOTAL TIME: 35 minutes

INGREDIENTS:
1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
2 large eggs
1/2 cup milk or cream (regular, soy, almond, cashew, etc.)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
heaping 1/3 cup maple syrup
1/4 cup light brown sugar, packed
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 tablespoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon allspice
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon salt, optional and to taste
optionally add: about 1/2 cup raisins, blueberries (fresh or frozen), diced apples, peaches, or mangoes; coconut flakes
1 pound Hawaiian Bread, diced in 1 1/2- to 2-inch pieces, or use Challah (If making this as an overnight/make-ahead option, use French bread, a French Baugette, or a crusty and hearty bread that can stand up to overnight soaking without disintegrating)
2 medium ripe bananas, diced small (about 1 1/2 cups loosely measured banana bits)

DIRECTIONS:
Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 9-by-9-inch pan with aluminum foil, spray with cooking spray; set aside. In a large microwave-safe bowl, melt the butter, about 1 minute (or use browned butter. Allow the butter to cool momentarily so you don't curdle the milk or scramble the eggs.
Add all remaining ingredients to the butter, except for the bread and bananas, and whisk until smooth and combined. Add the bread cubes, bananas, and toss gently to coat.
Transfer mixture to baking pan, pressing it down just slightly with a spatula to even and smooth it, but I leave it fairly loosely piled (unlike bread pudding which is packed down). Push down any bread corners or sides that are jutting up so they don't burn. Scrape out any marinade in the bottom of the bowl and pour that over the bread.
Bake for about 30 to 35 minutes, or until golden and browned, and the marinade has dried out some, taking care not to overbake as you want this moist. The coating does not have to be bone dry on all pieces. Serve immediately by slicing into pieces (I made 9 generous squares) or scoop with a serving spoon.
Serve with Vanilla Maple Butter, warm maple syrup, a dusting of confectioners' sugar, a sprinkle of salt (my husband loved the salty-and-sweet) or plain. Store extra French Toast in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days, reheating gently in the microwave prior to serving with a drizzle of syrup; or freeze for up to 2 months. French toast becomes less sticky as the days pass, making it easy to wrap up like muffin for a portable snack.
If making this as a make-ahead/overnight option, assemble, cover pan with foil, and refrigerate for up to 16 hours before baking. Remove foil, and bake as directed, possibly extending baking time past what's suggest (30 to 35 minutes) since pan and contents are starting out cold from the fridge.

45 Uses For Vinegar


45 USES FOR VINEGAR 

1. Freshen up the fridge. Clean the shelves and walls with a solution of half water and half vinegar.
2. Brighten coffee cups and teacups. Gently scrub stains with equal parts vinegar and salt (or baking soda).
3. Eliminate odors. Swab plastic containers with a cloth dampened with vinegar.
4. Kill bathroom germs. Spray full-strength vinegar around the sink and tub. Wipe clean with a damp cloth.
5. Save a garment. To remove light scorch marks on fabrics, rub gently with vinegar. Wipe with a clean cloth. This technique also works on antiperspirant stains.
6. Tidy up a toilet. Pour a cup or more of diluted white distilled vinegar into the bowl. Let sit several hours or overnight. Scrub well with a toilet brush and flush.
7. Lose the carpet stain. Make a paste of 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar and ¼ cup salt or baking soda. Rub into the stain and let dry. Vacuum the residue the next day. (Always test an out-of-sight part of the carpet first.)
8. Renew paint brushes. To remove old paint, place brushes in a pot with vinegar. Soak for an hour, then turn on the stove and bring the vinegar to a simmer. Drain and rinse clean.
9. Wipe off a dirty faucet. To get rid of lime buildup, make a paste of 1 teaspoon vinegar and 2 tablespoons salt. Apply to sink fixtures and rub with a cloth.
10. Stop static cling. Add ½ cup of white distilled vinegar to your wash cycle. The acid reduces static and keeps dryer lint from sticking to your clothes.
11. Make old socks look new. Get the stains out of old socks and sweaty gym clothes by soaking them in a vinegar solution. Add 1 cup of white distilled vinegar to a large pot of water, bring to a boil and drop in the stained clothes. Let them soak overnight, and in the morning stained clothes are fresh and bright.
12. Restore handbags and shoes. Wipe white distilled vinegar on scuffed leather bags and shoes. It will restore their shine and help hide the marks.
13. Banish weeds. Pour white distilled vinegar on the weeds growing in the cracks of your walkway and driveway. Saturate the plant so the vinegar reaches the roots.
14. Liven droopy flowers. Don’t throw out cut flowers once they start to wilt. Instead, add two tablespoons of white vinegar and one teaspoon of sugar to a quart of water. Pour the solution into your vase, and the flowers will perk up.
15. Put an end to itching. Dab a cotton ball soaked in white vinegar on mosquito bites and insect stings. It will stop them from itching and help disinfect the area so they heal faster.
16. Whiten your teeth. Brush your teeth once a week with white distilled vinegar. Dip your toothbrush into the vinegar and brush thoroughly. It will help prevent bad breath, too.
17. Make nail polish last longer. Before you apply your favorite polish, wipe your nails with a cotton ball soaked in white distilled vinegar. The clean surface will help your manicure last.
18. Keep car windows frost-free. Prevent windows from frosting over in a storm by coating them with a solution of three parts white distilled vinegar to one part water. The acidity hinders ice, so you won’t have to wake up early to scrape off your car.
19. Let your dog shine. Spray your dog with one cup white distilled vinegar mixed with one quart water. The solution is a cheap alternative to expensive pet-care products, plus the vinegar will help repel pests like fleas and ticks.
20. Battle litter-box odor. Cat litter can leave behind an unwelcome smell. Eliminate it by pouring a half-inch of white distilled vinegar into the empty litter box. Let stand for 20 minutes, then rinse with cold water.
21. Kill bacteria in meat. Marinating in vinegar knocks out bacteria and tenderizes the meat. Create a marinade by adding ¼ cup balsamic vinegar for every 2 pounds of meat to your own blend of herbs and spices. Let the meat sit anywhere from 20 minutes to 24 hours, depending on how strong you want the flavor, then cook it in the morning without rinsing.
22. Prevent cracked eggs. Prevent eggs from cracking as they hard-boil by adding two tablespoons of white vinegar to the water. The eggs will stay intact, and the shells will peel off more easily when you’re ready to eat them.
23. Steam away a microwave mess. Fill a small bowl with equal parts hot water and vinegar, and place it in the microwave on high for 5 minutes. As the steam fills the microwave, it loosens the mess, making clean up a breeze.
24. Repair DVDs. If you have a worn DVD that skips or freezes, wipe it down with white distilled vinegar applied to a soft cloth. Make sure the DVD is completely dry before reinserting it into the player.
25. Get those last drops. If you can’t get that final bit of mayonnaise or salad dressing out of the jar, dribble in a few drops of vinegar. Put the cap on tightly and shake. The remaining condiments will slide out.
26. Rinse fruits and vegetables. Add 2 tablespoons white distilled vinegar to one pint water. Use the mixture to wash fresh fruits and vegetables, then rinse thoroughly. The solution kills more pesticide residue than does pure water.
27. Brighter Easter eggs. Before your kids dye Easter eggs, mix 1 teaspoon of vinegar with ½ cup of hot water, then add food coloring. The vinegar keeps the dye bright and prevents the color from streaking.
28. Loosen a rusted screw. Pour vinegar onto the screw, and it will easily unstick.
29. Remove gum. To remove gum from fabric or hair, heat a small bowl of vinegar in the microwave. Pour the warm vinegar over the gum, saturating the area. The gum will dissolve.
30. Keep cheese from molding. Wrap cheese in a vinegar-soaked cloth, then place in an airtight container and refrigerate.
31. Renew a loofah. Soak your loofah in equal parts vinegar and water for 24 hours to dissolve soap residue, then rinse in cold water.
32. Remove wax. If you get melted candle wax on your wood furniture or floors, gently wipe it away with a cloth soaked in a solution of equal parts white vinegar and water.
33. Take a relaxing bath. Add ½ cup of vinegar to warm bath water for a cheap spa session at home. The vinegar removes dead skin, leaving you feeling soft and smooth.
34. Brighten your hair. Remove hair product buildup by rinsing a tablespoon of vinegar through your hair once a month.
35. Freshen fabrics. Fill a spray bottle with white vinegar and spritz your home to neutralize odors in fabrics, carpets, shoes or any sprayable surface.
36. Erase crayon. If your kids get crayon marks on the walls or floor, dip a toothbrush in white vinegar and gently scrub. The vinegar breaks down the wax, making for an inexpensive, nontoxic way to clean up after children.
37. Sticky stickers. Don’t scratch at the residue left by stickers or price tags. Instead, apply vinegar to the gunk, let it sit for a few minutes, then wipe the glue away.
38. Clean the dishwasher and coffee pot. Reduce soap buildup and food residue by pouring a cup of vinegar into your empty dishwasher or coffee pot once a month and letting it run a full cycle.
39. Sanitize pet accidents. You can remove the stain―and smell―of your pet’s accident by mixing ¼ cup vinegar with a quart of water and blotting the mixture onto the mess with a washcloth. Continue dabbing until the spot is gone.
40. Prep for summer grilling. To remove charcoal buildup from your grill, spray white distilled vinegar on balled up aluminum foil and scrub the grate thoroughly.
41. Restore shower head pressure. If your shower-head gets clogged with mineral deposits, soak it for 15 minutes in a mixture of ½ cup vinegar and 1 quart water.
42. Clean your scissors. When your scissor blades get sticky, wipe them down with a cloth dipped in full-strength white vinegar. Unlike soap and water, vinegar won’t ruin the blades or rust the metal.
43. Unclog drains. For a natural, nontoxic way to clean clogged pipes, pour one cup of baking soda, followed by one cup of white vinegar, down the drain. Let the products bubble and foam, then flush the pipes with a pot of boiling water.
44. Eliminate dandruff. If your scalp is feeling dry or flaky, vinegar can be a simple at-home remedy. Once a week, pour one cup of apple cider vinegar over your scalp, and let it sit for 15 minutes. Rinse thoroughly with cool water.
45. Soften your feet. Summer sandals leaving you with cracked heals and calluses? Soak your feet for 20 minutes a day in one part vinegar to two parts warm water. The vinegar removes dead skin, leaving your feet soft and smooth.

Judy Stallings



You may recognize Judy from my "million dollar earner" post yesterday. She's rockin' this business and you can too! This is what she had to say about her journey thus far.

I learned something about myself over the past several months. I learned that I had not given 100% to a goal that I wanted to accomplish. Yes I wanted to lose the pounds that had crept up over the past couple years since I quit my job and started to sit on my hiney. I learned that I was not really trying to reach that goal. I was not holding myself responsible or accountable. I was not taking my Skinny Fiber consistently and I was eating junk I knew I shouldn't.

On January 1 I made a commitment to myself, I am going to do it this time. I am going to eat better and I am going to take my SF consistently without fail.

As I look at this photo taken of me in Orlando in February at our last company event, and the one taken just this past weekend, I am so proud of myself for sticking with it! I've done nothing crazy, not starving myself ... just eating clean foods and taking my Skinny Fiber twice a day. I am always satisfied and at times feel I'm eating too much.

Anyone can do this - for me Skinny Fiber has been the one thing that has helped me stick to my plan and accomplish my goals. I am still a work in progress and I know I will get there - no doubt about it!!!

If you would like more information about Skinny Fiber, go to my web site, skinnymeskinnyu.com  Or message me with your questions. Or order here>>>http://mare51.eatlesswithskinnyfiber.com/?SOURCE=Judy

Courtesy of food.com
INGREDIENTS
SERVINGS 4-6 UNITS US
2 (3 -4 lb) slabs pork spareribs
salt
pepper
1 onion, sliced (optional)
1 (16 ounce) bottle barbecue sauce (I use Sweet Baby Ray's)

DIRECTIONS

Cut ribs into serving portions. I usually do two ribs together.
Sprinkle both sides with salt and pepper.
Place ribs on a broiler pan and broil 12 minutes per side or until browned. I like mine a bit 'crisp'. Drain if necessary.
Place sliced onion in crock pot.
Place rib sections on top of onions. Pour a little barabecue sauce over each section as you place them in the crock pot and the rest of the bottle over all the ribs.
Cover and cook on low for about 8 hours.

This is Sophia.....doesn't she look amazing? Here's what she had to say about her Skinny Fiber:

"This is for all those people who are not sure! This is me! June 2013...175 lbs and considered OBESE...and yesterday May 16, 2015... Still 123 lbs and loving it! It took me 8 months to lose the weight and I've been maintaining for 15 months now! Apparently, I now have the blood pressure of an athlete! No special diets for me... I love my food too much! And, I exercise when I can and what I can do is limited.... Don't want that excruciating sciatica pain to return. I'm so happy my hubby ordered me that first bottle of Skinny Fiber...

Another Skinny Fiber Success Story!



Another Skinny Fiber Success Story!

I started my weightloss journey back in August 2013. I weighed 208 lbs and was wearing a size 20 pants and a size 1X (almost 2X) in shirts. I hated myself and it took seeing pictures from my son's baby shower to really give me the push to do something about it.

From August - November 2013 I watched my portions, ate in moderation, cut out fast foods and soda and in...creased my water intake. I was able to lose 25 lbs (in a 15/16 pants and XL/L shirts) on my own and maintain that weightloss thru the holidays. When I tried getting back to losing more come February 2014 the weight wouldn't budge.

I joined a weightloss support group on FB and started seeing posts about Skinny Fiber....I figured I'd give it a shot so in March 2014 I started my journey with it. I consistently took my Skinny Fiber, drank at least a gallon of water a day, watched my portions and ate in moderation (very little exercise - only random walks here and there with my kids) and by October 2014 I was down an additional 32 lbs and SEVERAL inches! I was now able to wear a 7/8 pants and S/M shirts!

I haven't been taking it very consistently at all since October and I have been maintaining my weightloss with a slight fluctuation every now and then which is normal and I am now able to wear a size 5/6 pants!

Skinny Fiber has changed my life and I hope that you take the chance to let it change yours!
