This good looking treat was created by Rynesha with the help of Rashawn and Angel.
The Bananas in our kitchen were headed for the worst, so why not fry them up and toppem' over some waffles with blueberries and vanilla frozen yogurt. this was a wonderful turnout, as you can see and also a healthy snack that everybody loved.
1. Whole wheat waffles
2. Bananas (halfs)
3. Brown sugar
4. Unsalted butter
5. Frozen bluberries
6. Frozen vanilla yogurt
How to make:
Pre-heat oven on 350, put waffles in on a tray and let toast on each side for 5 min. Wash blueberries in warm water and let sit. In a small sauce pan put a little butter and place 3 to 4 banana halfs in it, spread brown sugar all over the bananas. The bananas are done when there is a clear brown glaze over them. When everything is done start topping the bananas then bluberries then frozen yogurt over the waffles..and enjoy.

SO we asked around Youth Radio the question "at what dollar amount do you start making poor health decisions for yourself?" the answer was near around 3 dollars. At that point it becomes chips and a soda, so we sent out Elaina and Susana on the 3 dollar challenge. I mean is there anything you'd really eat at $3 besides candy in a can?
take a look.

Growing up with a Jewish father and Italian Catholic-raised mom, my holiday seasons have always been double the fun. Being both Jewish and Italian, one could say it was inevitable that food is an integral part of my family's traditions. Indeed, eating has always been a passion shared by both sides of my family, used as a way to bring everyone together. So when the holidays come along, you can imagine that I spend some quality time around the dinner table with delicious food and loved ones.
In December, I have the luxury of celebrating both Hanukkah and Christmas, savoring both my dad's latkes and my grandma's lasagna. In the springtime, I get to enjoy brisket and matzoh balls at Passover Seders, and honey-baked ham (ironic, I know) and gnocchi at Easter Sunday dinners.
Usually, though, I don't have to choose between my two beloved cultures. Being exposed to both Christianity and Judaism, I have been able to discover many similarities between the two religions. For example, at Seders, parents hide a special piece of matzoh called the Afikomen for children to find -- a tradition I practically get to repeat on Easter when I search for eggs in my Nonna's backyard.
I appreciate being able to celebrate the holidays so many different ways, and feel blessed to be a part of two wonderful cultures.
Brisket or ham, matzoh balls or gnocchi, Afikomen or Easter eggs, spending time around the table with family is always a treat.
