Sweet N’ Sour Cream

A lovely assortment of fresh berries with Sweet N' Sour Cream for dessert

This has always been a summer treat in my house–I personally just like to dip fresh fruit (particularly raspberries) in it, but we’ve also used it as an alternative to whipped cream to top fruity summer baked goods. I believe there is some fancy french name for this, but I don’t know what that may be…

All you do for this is mix some brown sugar into sour cream (this is one place where I really notice a difference between low-fat and full-fat sour cream). For dip for a dessert-sized portion of mixed berries, I usually mix two heaping spoonfuls of sour cream with a spoonful of brown sugar. Mix in the brown sugar and let it set a short while until it’s all dissolved.

Blueberry Banana Bread

I made this recipe yesterday and found it DELICIOUS, but I thought the directions and ordering of ingredients were a bit confusing. I haven’t made any substantive changes to the recipe, I’ve just rewritten it a bit for clarity.

Makes two loaves of bread, or one loaf and one tray of muffins.

Ingredients:
1 egg
1/2 cup white sugar
1/2 cup packed light brown sugar
3 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/3 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 1/2 cups flour
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cinnamon
3 medium mashed bananas
1/4 cup coconut
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)
2 cups frozen blueberries

Directions:
In a large bowl, cream together the egg and sugars. Add wet ingredients and mix, then dry.
Add the mashed bananas and mix.
Fold in blueberries, coconut, and pecans if using.
Pour into greased loaf or muffin pans.
Bake at 350* F for about an hour for a loaf, and about 20 minutes for muffins.
Cool slightly, loosen, and turn onto a baking rack to cool.
When cool, wrap in plastic wrap and keep refrigerated.

Enjoy!

Apple Snow

This is another thing that the rest of America probably realized years ago and I’m just now catching on to, but I thought I’d share the amazingness in case I wasn’t the only one in the dark.

Take applesauce. Put it in a bowl. Put the bowl in the freezer. Stir after about a half hour. Take it out when it has the texture of snow. Eat (one can only have so much ice cream, after all)
