Expert Tips:

• What is a lush? A lush is a party-perfect “no-bake” dessert, which is also known as a dessert lasagna, layered dessert or ice-box cake. It’s defined by decadent layers of varying flavors and textures – think sugar cookies, banana pudding and cool whip. Usually, a lush is made up of a brownie or crushed cookie base topped by various layers of flavored cream cheese, cool whip, pudding or all of the above! With their fluffy creamy tops dotted with garnishes – anything from cookies to candy to fruit to chocolate sauce – lushes look as good as they taste!

• What’s in this lush? This lush has a fudgy brownie base topped with whipped cream cheese, crushed Oreo cookies, chocolate pudding, more whipped topping and a garnish of more Oreos. In other words, it’s a chocolate lover’s dream come true!

• This sounds like a lot of work. There are three to four bowls needed in order to make the dessert, so there are some dishes, but the payoff is a delicious dessert that is perfect for potlucks.

• Here are our best tips for mastering this lush.

• While a metal 13x9 pan will certainly do, we recommend making this in a glass pan, because it shows the pretty layers.

• Soften the cream cheese before mixing, so it blends well, and there are no lumps. To quickly soften cream cheese, remove from wrapper and place on microwavable plate. Microwave uncovered on High about 15 seconds or just until softened.

• For the crushed Oreo layer, you can use a food processor to crush the cookies into a fine crumb. If you don’t own a food processor, place cookies in a zip-top plastic bag and using a rolling pin, meat mallet or the back of a small pan to crush cookies. You want a fine crumb, so the base holds together.

• When spreading the layers of filling, its best to drop dollops and then spread over the surface using the back of a spoon or a flat metal spatula.

• The coarsely crushed cookies used as a garnish can simply be crushed by hand or roughly chopped.

• Don’t skimp on the four hours of refrigeration time needed. Lushes cut the best when super cold.

• Can I make this ahead? Yes, this dessert can be made the day before. Add your coarsely crushed Oreo garnish right before serving for the best taste – they add a little crunch – and the prettiest presentation.

• How long will a lush keep? This recipe makes 24 servings. If you have any leftovers, cover your pan with foil and store in the fridge for up a few days. Where can I find more lush recipes? If you find yourself in love with this lush, Betty’s got plenty more recipes you’ll want to try this summer, including Lemon Lush, Strawberry Shortcake Lush, Berry Lush, Banana Cream Pie Lush, Spumoni Brownie Lush and more!

1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/4 cup white sugar
1 egg
1 cup semisweet chocolate chips
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2/3 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

Red Velvet Cheesecake Swirl Brownies (AllRecipes)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
1 cup white sugar
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 ounce red food coloring
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon distilled white vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs, slightly beaten
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 (8 ounce) package cream cheese at room temperature
1/4 cup white sugar
1 large egg
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease an 8x8-inch baking pan.

2. Whisk melted butter with 1 cup sugar in a large mixing bowl; stir cocoa, red food coloring, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, vinegar, and salt into butter mixture one at a time, mixing well after each addition to avoid lumps. Stir 2 eggs into mixture until thoroughly combined.

3. Stir flour into cocoa mixture just until combined; set aside 1/4 cup batter. Pour remaining batter into the prepared baking dish.

4. Beat cream cheese in a bowl using an electric mixer on medium speed until light and fluffy; beat 1/4 cup sugar, 1 egg, and 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract into cream cheese until very well blended and only small lumps remain, 3 to 4 minutes.

5. Spoon cream cheese mixture in dollops over the batter in pan; gently smooth tops of dollops even with batter using a knife or offset spatula. Do not overmix. Drizzle reserved 1/4 cup of batter over the dollops of cream cheese mixture. Drag a knife or skewer through the batter and cream cheese mixture to create swirls.

6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center of the pan comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Cool completely before cutting into bars; store covered in refrigerator.

Cook's Note:

The fluffier and smoother you can get the cheesecake mixture, the easier it will be to spread. I think this is best served the next day!

Good morning Texas!

Sunday - 24th March, 2019

Today is

World Tuberculosis Day:

World Tuberculosis Day was created by the World Health Organization to spread knowledge and awareness of tuberculosis, an infectious disease that kills millions every year. Tuberculosis is easily curable, but it can lie dormant and undetected for years, so it’s important to spread awareness. The World Health Organization chose March 24 as World Tuberculosis Day to commemorate the day Dr. Robert Koch discovered TB bacillus, the bacterium responsible for the disease.

March 24, 1982
First World Tuberculosis Day Held

The World Health Organization holds the first World Tuberculosis Day to commemorate the 100th anniversary of Dr. Koch’s discovery.

1921
First Patient Vaccinated

The BCG vaccine is first used on humans after 13 years in the making.

March 24, 1882:
Cause of TB Discovered

Dr. Robert Koch discovers TB bacillus, the bacterium that causes tuberculosis.

Why World Tuberculosis Day is Important:

Many people still suffer from tuberculosis:
It may seem like an outdated disease, but around one-third of the world’s population is infected with tuberculosis. It’s estimated that 2 billion people have tuberculosis. In 2016, 10.4 million people contracted TB, and there were 1.7 million TB related deaths.

It’s closer to home than you’d think:
Although TB is a bigger problem in third world countries, its impact stretches closer to home than you might think. In 2014, there were 9,412 new cases of TB in the United States. In 2016, Tuberculosis was reported in all fifty states, with California, Texas, New York, and Florida topping the list.

We can stop TB:
Due to its outdated misconception, tuberculosis is not seen as a relevant issue. Spreading awareness about the disease can help those at high risk seek treatment. If those who are likely to be affected get vaccinated, the disease could be eradicated, and we could see an end to tuberculosis in our lifetime.

Other National Days Today:

National Cheesesteak Day 2019:

Every year on March 24, the United States pays tribute to one of the all-time classic sandwiches – the cheesesteak. Much like national liberty itself, the cheesesteak is elegant, necessary, pure, and was born in Philadelphia. The cheesesteak rose from humble beginnings in South Philly to the cultural icon it is today: safely secure in the sandwich hall of fame. “Eat (ahem, read) on to celebrate National Cheesecake Day.”

1966
The Beef Begins

Geno’s Steaks opens right across the streets from Pat’s, fueling a friendly rivalry that rages to this day.

1940
Pat's Steaks Opens

The Oliveris open their now-iconic South Philly restaurant, Pat’s King of Steaks.

1930's
A Legend is Born

The Cheesesteak is created by Pat and Harry Oliveri, hot dog vendors who just so happened to put steak on the grill.

Why We Love National Cheesesteak Day:

Delicious food doesn't have to be fancy
There’s no denying it - cheesesteaks are downright delicious. They prove that you don’t need all kinds of fancy trimmings and trappings to make a delectable sandwich. Sometimes the only ingredients you need are the ones in the name.

They’re a huge part of Philly culture
Philly loves Ben Franklin, The Eagles, and cheesesteaks, in that order. Cheesesteaks are such an integral part of the city’s culture that they generate tourism. But, whatever you do, don’t call it a “Philly cheesesteak.” It's just a cheesesteak!

It's the one time to use spray cheese
For whatever reason, cheesesteaks are traditionally eaten with Cheese Whiz or some other form of spray cheese. For the sake of tradition, this is allowed. Cheesesteaks, however, are the only way to consume cheese whiz without it looking like a cry for help.

National Cheesesteak Day Activities:

Eat a cheesesteak
This seems obvious, but sometimes the obvious answer is the best. You can roll up your sleeves and craft your own sandwich, or you can pay a professional to do it for you. Just know that if the word Philly is in the name, it may not be the most authentic.

Visit the cheesesteak homeland
If you have the time and money, take a pilgrimage to the magical land where it all started. There are a shocking amount of official cheesesteak tours of Philadelphia, or you can go off the beaten path your own if you’re feeling adventurous. Just be sure to stop at Pat’s and Geno’s.

Try a vegan cheesesteak
Cheesesteaks may seem like the last thing that could be made vegan, but there are countless, easy to follow recipes online for plant-based cheesesteaks. If you’re in the mood for a kitchen adventure, try a cheesesteak made from mushrooms, vegetables, soy, wheat, nuts, or pretty much anything else imaginable.

International Day for the Right to the Truth concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims:

The right to the truth is often invoked in the context of gross violations of human rights and grave breaches of humanitarian law. The relatives of victims of summary executions, enforced disappearance, missing persons, abducted children, torture, require to know what happened to them. The right to the truth implies knowing the full and complete truth as to the events that transpired, their specific circumstances, and who participated in them, including knowing the circumstances in which the violations took place, as well as the reasons for them.

Each year, on 24 March, the International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims is observed.

This annual observance pays tribute to the memory of Monsignor Óscar Arnulfo Romero, who was murdered on 24 March 1980. Monsignor Romero was actively engaged in denouncing violations of the human rights of the most vulnerable individuals in El Salvador.

The purpose of the Day is to:

1. Honour the memory of victims of gross and systematic human rights violations and promote the importance of the right to truth and justice;

2. Pay tribute to those who have devoted their lives to, and lost their lives in, the struggle to promote and protect human rights for all;

3. Recognize, in particular, the important work and values of Archbishop Oscar Arnulfo Romero, of El Salvador, who was assasinated on 24 March 1980, after denouncing violations of the human rights of the most vulnerable populations and defending the principles of protecting lives, promoting human dignity and opposition to all forms of violence.

National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day:

Raisins coated in a shell of either milk chocolate or dark chocolate have their special day of honor each March 24 on National Chocolate Covered Raisin Day.

Chocolate covered raisins have been popular with moviegoers for many, many years and they continue to be. They are also a conventional bulk vending item across the country.

More than 1 million Raisinets are produced per hour.

In some countries, chocolate covered raisins are known as Raisinets. Raisinets were the earliest and one of the most popular brands of the product. Currently made by Nestle, they are the third largest selling candy in United States history. The Blumenthal Chocolate Company introduced the Raisinets to the United States in 1927, and then in 1984, the brand was acquired by Nestle. There are also a large number of other brands of chocolate covered raisins on the market.

Raisins are an excellent source of calcium, potassium, iron, fiber and vitamin B. When you combine the raisins with dark chocolate, you have a great tasting, healthy snack.

Special Quote of the Day: "A vaccine that prevented tuberculosis would merit a Nobel Prize, but it's just very difficult to develop." - Tom Frieden

Regular Quote of the Day: "The talents we each have been blessed with can only be developed if we use them fully to benefit the lives of others as well as our own." - Karen Casey, The Promise of a New Day

Questions of the day:

1. Do you like them?
2. Are they informative enough?
3. What else should I include in them?
4. Do you have any other suggestions for improvements?
