The summer has been really heating up, so we’re coming up with creative ways to keep cool. One of our favorite things to make with our NutriBullet is “nice cream,” which is ice cream made using frozen bananas. This snack is super easy and quick to make, and it’s an alternative to ice cream that tastes great and is actually healthy. There are infinite recipes you can try, but this is my favorite for days you want to indulge while still eating clean.
Chocolate Peanut Butter Nice Cream
Frozen bananas (two is usually a good serving for one)
Making your own meals at college can be challenging. Most likely you will have a mini fridge that that stores less than you are accustomed to. You might also share this fridge with your college roommate, leaving you with even less space. This, along with your peers and time constraints, may influence you to just grab something quick at a fast food restaurant or your campus cafeteria. The truth is, this is not a healthy diet and can be much more expensive than preparing your own food. Here are some simple recipes that are healthier for you than your local fast food chain.

Toni Senecal from Toni On! New York stopped by one of our P.C. Richard & Son showrooms to check out some of the BBQ grills we have available and learn a fantastic recipe from our own Pat Dehner. He explained that our gas grills range from $99 to $8,000 for your absolute dream grill, and Toni was shocked to hear that you can cook anything on a Weber grill that you’d normally cook in your oven! Yes, we have done demonstrations where chocolate chip cookies were made on one of these fine grills.
Pat didn’t make chocolate chip cookies with Toni this time, but made a delicious modified version of peaches and cream. Check out the video here, and the … Read more...
1. At night, open your windows and turn on any ceiling fans so that they are spinning counter-clockwise to circulate the air. In the morning, close the windows to trap the cooler air inside while it lasts (especially during peak heat times of 10am – 2pm). Closing your blinds and curtains will help the cooler air last longer, espeically on the south or west sides of your home where the sun beats most.
Happy Cinco de Mayo, readers! This holiday was originally created to commemorate the Mexican army’s victory against the French at the Battle of Puebla on May 5, 1862. Today, many people take advantage of the holiday to celebrate Mexican heritage, which usually includes margaritas and excellent Mexican cuisine. Our friends over at GE Appliances have some great recipes, including this Mexican-inspired taco casserole dish. Grab some chips, a chilled drink, and enjoy!
