Banana Split Cake

banana

  • 1 stick butter, melted
  • 1 box graham cracker crumbs
  • 1 (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cups butter, softened
  • 3 cups powdered sugar
  • 4 bananas, sliced
  • 1 (20 oz) can crushed pineapple, drained
  • 1 (16 ounce) container Cool-Whip, thawed or 1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1 (4 ounce) jar maraschino cherries, stemmed
  • 1 cup walnuts or pecans, chopped
  • hot fudge sauce, slightly warmed
  • 1 tablespoon rainbow sprinkles

 

  1. In a medium bowl, combine graham cracker crumbs and melted butter.
  2. Firmly press into a crust in the bottom of 9×13 glass or porcelain dish, let it chill in the freezer for about 10 minutes to firm up.
  3. In a medium bowl, cream together the cream cheese, 1/4 cups butter, and the powdered sugar until creamy, about 5 minutes.
  4. Don’t be tempted to add milk, it will take a few minutes, but the mixture will blend up perfectly!
  5. Spread the cream cheese mixture over the cooled graham cracker crust.
  6. Add a layer of sliced bananas over the cream cheese mixture.
  7. Spread pineapple chunks evenly over the bananas.
  8. Evenly spread the Cool-Whip over the pineapple-banana layer using a rubber spatula.
  9. Garnish with the pecans/walnuts and maraschino cherries.
  10. Drizzle the chocolate fudge over the dessert and then sprinkle the rainbow sprinkles over the surface.
  11. Chill for at least 4 hours before cutting to allow the layers to set. Enjoy!

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

soup-lod495423small

1 pound bacon, roughly chopped
1 medium yellow onion, diced
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
3/4 cup diced celery
4 large Russet potatoes, peeled and diced
4 medium red potatoes, diced
1/4 cup flour
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock
Coarse salt, freshly ground pepper, to taste
4 cups heavy whipping cream
Optional garnishes: chopped chives, bacon bits, sour cream, shredded cheddar and Monterey Jack cheese

  1. In a 6- to 8-quart stockpot over medium heat, fry bacon until crisp.
  2. Remove bacon and drain on paper towels, reserving half for garnish. In bacon fat, cook onions, carrots, and celery until the onions are translucent. Add potatoes and cook for 4 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  3. Whisk in flour and stir constantly over low heat until the flour is cooked and the mixture has thickened slightly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add chicken stock and half of the bacon. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Over medium-high heat, bring the soup to a simmer and cook for 25 minutes or until the potatoes are soft. Mash some of the potatoes for thicker, creamier texture. Add whipping cream and simmer for 5 minutes.
  5. Adjust thickness by adding water or stock. Soup should have a creamy consistency.
  6. Season to taste, and garnish with toppings.

Enjoy!
