Hot Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer On TV

The "Fifty Shades of Grey" trailer debuted on the "Today" show on Thursday, and it teases just about everything fans of the book will want to see -- plus a special, exclusive version of Beyonce's "Crazy In Love." (That explains her Instagram teaser.)
Based on E L James' best-selling erotic novel, "Fifty Shades of Grey" stars Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele. It's set to hit theaters Feb. 13, 2015.
On "Today," Savannah Guthrie admitted that NBC only showed a portion of the trailer -- some of it, including the bondage scenes were too raunchy for daytime television -- but the entire tease is available online. Watch below.

I was worried about how this thing would sound and perform. My first experience with a portable sat unit (a Sky-Fi, My-Fi)was lackluster for sure. I mean its a portable satellite radio unit so my expectations were forgiving. Man o man, this thing is great! Sound quality, specifically bass response is mind blowing. I would go so far as to say it would rival the sound docks from Bose. Getting a strong sat signal can be tricky at times. It takes a little bit of practice and knowing your cardinal directions (XM recommends aiming the antenna south) but surprisingly for the most part you can just point it at the sky and rock on. I have on occasion been able to set it on the kitchen counter and aim the antenna southward and it work just fine inside the house!

Now for the downside. And there is only one. Battery life does seem a bit short. But in its defense it does have to power the unit in addition to the internal amp for the speakers, and I was not using a high quality set of batteries. But even so I would not expect it to last a super long time. It does sort of stink that it needs (8) D cell batteries, but with a good set or rechargeable batteries I expect it should last a while loner. Hey you got to pay to play right? I plan to try it soon with the good rechargeable batteries I have and update this review.

Side note: I did have one issue while using the unit. It was an isolated incident but the volume would cut out and the lights around the volume knob would flash randomly. It only happened once and I use this thing 3+ days a week, also since I cannot replicate the problem I would not say it is an issue, just wanted to point it out.

moist banana bread recipe

Classic Banana Bread Recipe
moist banana bread recipe has been on our to-do list for quite some time now. It’s a classic and we knew we couldn’t miss the opportunity to share our own version with you. There are no surprises in our moist banana bread recipe — you’ll find mashed bananas, flour, butter, eggs, baking soda and spices. Nuts are optional, although we do love the added crunch. Sour cream guarantees a moist and tender loaf. And bananas are sliced instead of mashed in this recipe, giving a concentrated banana taste in every bite.

The Best Banana Bread Recipe Starts with the Best Bananas

No matter what recipe you use, remember this. There is no point in baking up a batch of banana bread without using ripe bananas. In fact if you can wait a day for browned, overripe and speckled bananas, it’s even better. If your bananas are still green, wait a day or two. You won’t regret it.
It’s the bananas that make banana bread so moist, sweet and flavorful. moist chocolate chip banana bread recipe

Classic Banana Bread Recipe
Once you’re ready with your bananas, the rest of the recipe comes together quickly. You definitely don’t need a mixer to make banana bread — a fork or spatula works perfectly fine.
Treat the batter like muffin or pancake batter. Don’t over mix. You’re only looking to mix everything together until you no longer see streaks of flour. This way, the bread stays on the lighter, moister side instead of heavy and flat.
Classic Banana Bread Recipe
The bread bakes for quite a while – about an hour. Even though that seems like a long time to wait, the smell of banana bread baking in the oven is to die for. Definitely top 10 on our list of best kitchen smells!

For the best, most flavorful bread, the bananas need to be ripe — overripe, brown and speckled is even better. Nuts are completely optional for this. We love the bread both ways, but do enjoy the extra crunch from a handful of walnuts or pecans.

A note on pan size: We use a 8 1/2- by 4 1/2-inch loaf pan; if you only have a 9- by 5-inch pan, start checking for doneness 5 to 10 minutes earlier.
Yield: 1 loaf, 8 slices
You Will Need
  • 1 1/2 cups (210 grams) all-purpose flour (we use Gold Medal)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 medium bananas (heavily speckled or even black bananas are best)
  • 1/2 cup (113 grams or 1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
  • 3/4 cup (150 grams) packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup (50 grams) walnuts or pecans, toasted and chopped, optional
  1. Center a rack in the oven and heat to 350ยบ F. Butter and flour an 8 1/2- x 4 1/2- x 2 1/2-inch loaf pan. Place the pan on an insulated baking sheet or on two regular baking sheets stacked on top of the other.

  3. Make Batter: Whisk the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon together, set aside.
  4. In the bottom of a medium bowl, mash bananas into a chunky paste. Whisk the melted butter, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla into the bananas until blended.Classic-Banana-Bread-Recipe-Step-1
  5. Switch to a large rubber spatula. Scrape the sides and bottom of the bowl then add the dry ingredients in 3 parts, stirring gently until they disappear and the batter is smooth. Stir in nuts.Classic-Banana-Bread-Recipe-Step-2
  6. Bake Banana Bread: Pour batter into the pan and smooth the top. Bake 55 to 75 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  7. After 30 minutes in the oven, check the bread for color. If it looks like it is browning too quickly, loosely cover with aluminum foil.
  8. When the bread is done, transfer it, in the pan, to a wire rack to cool for 5 minutes. Unmold the bread and place right side up on the rack. Cool completely.
  9. For Storing: It's best to wrap the bread tightly in plastic wrap and store at room temperature overnight or in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. (Since it's just the two of us, we store in the refrigerator then when we want a slice we'll give it a couple minutes in our toaster oven to warm up).

Notes and Tips
We use kosher salt. If you don’t have it on hand, keep this in mind: 1 teaspoon fine sea or table salt = about 1 1/4 teaspoons kosher salt.
