Since the turn of the century young and old have enjoyed this creamy dessert. Perfect for a hot summer’s day the banana split is a variation of the ice cream sundae. A split banana in a long dish topped with a scoop each of vanilla, strawberry, and chocolate ice creams, whipped cream, nuts and a cherry. That’s the basic banana split; add hot fudge, candied pineapple or strawberry sauce. Use your imagination.

While the origins of this holiday are unknown, David Evans Strickler, an apprentice pharmacist, is credited as the “inventor” of these fabulous desserts when he created them at the Tassel Pharmacy in Pennsylvania in 1904.

Celebrate National Banana Split Day by setting up a banana split buffet, invite your friends over and enjoy!

National Coffee Cake Day


Today is National Coffee Cake Day, and there are so many wonderful coffee cake recipes. Coffee cakes are sweet cakes usually meant to accompany coffee. They are usually single layer cakes, baked in a loaf or bundt pan.

I wanted to find a coffee cake that would be somewhat healthy. I came across this recipe for Low Fat Blueberry Coffee Cake. It has a great texture, and it will appeal to all cake lovers, not to mention the blueberries and nuts are healthy for you.

Enjoy the day with a great cup of coffee and cake.
