Sheela-na-gigs

In honor of the upcoming Mother’s Day; I’m going to share some information about a particularly ancient symbol. Sheela na gigs are figurative carvings of naked women found on churches, castles, and other buildings, particularly in Ireland and Great Britain.

Such carvings are said to ward off death and evil, like other grotesques, such as gargoyles and were frequently part of church decorations all over Europe. It is commonly said that their purpose was to keep evil spirits away. They often are positioned over doors or windows, presumably to protect these openings.

Bananas

I'm Maria Filosa from WDIY and you are listening to Tasty Seasonal Recipes for the Everyday Chef. Bananas are one of those fruits you either love or hate. When I was younger, I didn't like them much but I have found that lately I am enjoying them more and more. The banana plant is actually a perennial herb and the banana is a berry. Each bunch is called a hand and the single banana is called a finger. They start out green and as they turn yellow, the sugars in the banana intensify. When the skin has turned brown, they are very ripe and slightly mushy.
