                                              You can do so much with this recipe. You start with making fresh marshmallows, then dip them and dress them however you see fit. Customize it for the holidays or for personal taste.

                                                        slide_320783_3001339_free

                                                          Served hot or cold? Slight warm or chilled? I’d have to heat this one up for a few seconds so I could delight in the way it pulls away with each gooey bite full.

                                                          30.  Red Velvet and Marshmallow Cookies

                                                          slide_320783_3001328_free

                                                            This is a recipe that has been made over and over, and it’s a great reminder that you can do so much with it. You have a base, the cookie, some marshmallow cream, and then drizzle or dip it in some sort of chocolate. Get creative with color, and you’ll have something you wouldn’t mind gifting someone at a special holiday.

                                                            31.  Sweet & Salty Guinness Chocolate Pie with Marshmallow Meringue

                                                            slide_320783_3000853_free

                                                              I dare you to try this one out. It sounds like it would be difficult to pull off, but it is that much more interesting because of it. It probably tastes divine. The beer has to give it some sort of signature taste, but in some cases, the beer or liqueur just adds a little note. Serving with a pretzel is a cute way to stay with the theme.

                                                              32.  Snowy Street Marshmallow Ice-cream

                                                                Just the name alone is enough to make you want to put it on your menu. The recipe plays off of rocky road ice cream, but it is all about vanilla and white chocolate.

                                                                I hope these recipes inspire you to go on and beyond with your love of marshmallows. They really are only the tip of the iceberg because some people have been able to fill up blogs and books with just recipes about your favorite confection. The love of the marshmallow seems to know no bounds.

                                                                How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

                                                                How to Improve Memory and Boost Your Brainpower

                                                                Have you ever noticed that some people are able to effortlessly remember even the most mundane details and quickly comprehend new things? Well, you can too!

                                                                To unlock the full potential of your brain, you need to keep it active and acute. Wasting time on your couch watching mindless television shows or scrolling through facebook is not going to help.

                                                                Besides getting out flashcards, what can you do to help remember things better and learn new things more quickly? Check out these 10 effective ways on how to improve memory:

                                                                1. Exercise and Get Your Body Moving

                                                                Exercising doesn’t just exercise the body, it also helps to exercise your brain. Obesity and the myriad of diseases that eventually set in as a result of being overweight can cause serious harm to the brain.

                                                                Furthermore, without regular exercise, plaque starts to build up in your arteries, and your blood vessels begin to lose the ability to effectively pump blood. Plaque buildup leads to heart attacks and it also reduces the amount of oxygen and nutrients that your blood carries to your brain. When the nutrients don’t make it there, the brain’s ability to function is compromised.

                                                                To prevent this from happening, make sure you get moving every day. Even if it’s just a brisk walk, it’ll help you maintain and increase your mental acuity. Brisk walking, swimming and dancing are all excellent activities. Take a look at these 5 Ways to Find Time for Exercise.

                                                                Advertising

                                                                2. Eliminate Stressors and Seek Help If You’re Depressed

                                                                Anything that causes you major stress, like anger or anxiety, will in time begin to eat away the parts of your brain that are responsible for memory. Amongst the most brain-damaging stressors is depression, which is actually often misdiagnosed a a memory problem since one of its primary symptoms is the inability to concentrate.

                                                                If you can’t concentrate, then you might feel like you are constantly forgetting things. Depression increases the levels of cortisol in your bloodstream which elevates the cortisol levels in the brain. Doctors have found that increased cortisol diminishes certain areas of the brain, especially the hippocampus which is where short-term memories are stored.

                                                                Prolonged depression can thus destroy your brain’s ability to remember anything new. Seek professional help to combat your depression – your brain will thank you.

                                                                3. Get a Good Night’s Sleep and Take Naps

                                                                Getting a consistent 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night will increase your memory. During sleep, the brain firms up memories of recently acquired information.

                                                                Getting enough sleep will help you get through the full spectrum of nocturnal cycles that are essential to optimal brain and body functioning during the waking hours. Taking a nap throughout the day, especially after learning something new, can also help you to retain those memories as well as recharge your brain and keep it sharper longer.

                                                                4. Feed Your Brain

                                                                Fifty to sixty percent of the brain’s overall weight is pure fat, which is used to insulate its billions of nerve cells. The better insulated a cell is, the faster it can send messages and the quicker you will be thinking.

                                                                This is precisely why parents are advised to feed their young children whole milk and to restrict dieting – their brains’ need fat to grow and work properly. Skimping on fats can be devastating even to the adult brain.

                                                                Thus, eating foods that contain a healthy mix of fats is vital for long-term memory. Some excellent food choices include fish (especially anchovies, mackerel and wild salmon) and dark leafy green vegetables. Here’re more brain food choices: 12 Foods that Can Improve Your Brain Power

                                                                Deep-fried foods obviously contain fat but their lack of nutritional value is not going to help your brain or your body, so think healthy foods and fats.

                                                                5. Eat Breakfast and Make Sure It Includes an Egg

                                                                According to Larry McCleary, M.D., author of  The Brain Trust Program, an egg is the ideal breakfast. Eggs contain B vitamins which help nerve cells to burn glucose, antioxidants that protect neurons against damage; and omega-3 fatty acids that keep nerve cells firing at optimal speed.

                                                                Other foods to add to your breakfast include fruits, veggies and lean proteins. Avoid trans fats and high fructose corn syrup. Trans fats diminish the brain cells’ ability to communicate with each other and HFCS can actually shrink the brain by damaging cells.

                                                                Having a healthy breakfast in the morning has been shown to improve performance throughout the day. If you’re too busy to have a healthy breakfast, this maybe just right for you: 33 Quick And Healthy Breakfasts For Busy Mornings

                                                                If there’s something you want to remember, writing it down can help.

                                                                It may sound like a no-brainer, but do you really know why? Writing it down creates oxygenated blood flow to areas of your brain that a responsible for your memories and literally exercises those parts of it. Here’s How Writing Things Down Can Change Your Life.

                                                                You can start a journal, write yourself emails or even start keeping a blog – all of these activities will help to improve your capacity to remember and memorize information.

                                                                Research shows that certain types of music are very helpful in recalling memories. Information that is learned while listening to a particular song or collection can often be recalled by thinking of the song or “playing” it mentally. Songs and music can serve as cues for pulling up particular memories.

                                                                8. Visual Concepts

                                                                Pay attention to photographers, charts and other graphics that might appear in your textbook; or if you’re not studying a book, try to pull up a mental image of what it is you are trying to remember. It might also help to draw your own charts or figures, or utilize colors and highlighters to group related ideas in your notes.

                                                                Reading material out loud has been shown to significantly improve memory of the material. Expanding further upon this idea is the fact that psychologists and educators have found that by having students teach new concepts to others, it helps to enhance understanding and recall.

                                                                Teach new concepts and information to a friend or study partner, and you’ll find you remember the information a lot better.
