I just made this lovely salad the other evening for my family after being inspired by a friend to eat salad. I love it. It's Poussin (spring chicken) with yoghurt, green beans and coriander. It's simple, easy & can be a healthy, light meal all on its own. I ate a big plate. More pictures and steps to combine it at

something sweet and an Asian favourite. It's Crunchy Sesame Candy Bars. It's very addictive. My family likes it very much. Great for any occasion. It is very simple and easy to make. Only need sesame seeds, sugar and butter. More pictures at Keep Learning Keep Smiling » Crunchy Sesame Candy Bars

Cheers,

Yellow Ribbon Turon
(makes 20 pieces)

- 10 saba bananas, sliced lengthwise
- 20 lumpia wrappers (spring roll wrappers)
- brown sugar (start with ½ cup then keep adding when you run out)
- 10 pieces Choc-nut chopped (this will also depend on how much you want to put into your turon)
- 10 pieces total Curly Tops & Flat Tops, chopped (again, this will also depend on how much you want to put into your turon)
- a little water
- oil for frying
80breakfasts.blogspot.com

Here’s what you do:

- Spread the brown sugar in a bowl wide enough to lay the banana slices in.
- Coat a slice of banana in the brown sugar.
- Place the coated banana on one end of the lumpia wrapper
- Place alternating chunks of Choc-nut on the banana slice (Feel free to do this to your taste, if you want more of the peanut or more of the chocolate flavor.
- Fold wrapper and banana over once, then fold the side ends in, then continue folding until you reach the end of the wrapper. Seal the end with water.
- Repeat procedure with the rest of the banana slices.
- Fry in hot oil until golden brown.

choc-nut is a Philippine made product,,You can substitute it with chopped peanuts or any chocolate u want....You can also top the turones with vanilla ice cream..Hope y'all try this one out. xoxo
what are Curly Tops & Flat Tops? sounds like parsley to me but i am sure thats not right
