I used to be such a picky eater. I’m sure I gave my mother fits over my short list of foods I would eat. I have definitely changed my ways and have even come to like foods that I always thought I hated. Case in point: banana pudding.

I avoided it for years, thinking that I just didn’t care for it. But then I started thinking about all that pudding and bananas and vanilla wafers, and I couldn’t think of a single reason why I shouldn’t like it. Seriously, what’s not to love?

These Dulce de Leche Banana Pudding Bars offer a bit of a twist on traditional banana pudding. First, the vanilla wafers are crushed and made into a crust that serves as the foundation for all the good stuff on top. Having a crust lends a bit more structure versus the traditional presentation of cookies layered among the pudding and bananas.

of dulce de leche to add a wonderful richness and flavor. It really matches perfectly with the bananas, pudding, and whipped cream. I know that dulce de leche can be tough to find sometimes. If that’s the case for you, a thick caramel sauce would work, too.

I opted to make my own vanilla pudding for these bars. It tastes so much better than a mix that I try to use it whenever a recipe calls for pudding. It’s easy to make, too. It will need some chilling time, so I do recommend making it a few hours or a day in advance so that it’s ready to go when you assemble all these layers.

No-bake desserts don’t get much better than this. These bars are simple to make and easy to assemble. And the flavor is outstanding! Personally, I now think dulce de leche should be a required addition to all banana puddings!

The biggest job I ever lost was running a national magazine. Word that I’d gotten fired spread like wildfire in the industry. It even rated a headline in the local paper; my parents knew I’d been canned before I had the chance to call up and tell them.

 

I wallowed, I ugly-cried, I indulged in revenge fantasies. I felt sure I’d never work again. Then I reached out to a good friend for consolation. Instead, I got an unexpected perspective. “Now that everyone has seen you flat on your ass, you won’t ever be afraid of failing again,” she told me.

 

That completely flipped my mind-set. It wasn’t so much that I mourned the job, big deal though it was; it was more that I felt so mortified by my perceived fail it paralyzed me. Our discussion freed me up to start calling contacts and setting up interviews. Within weeks, I had a new job—same field, better money and refueled confidence. I got hired so fast I never even missed a mortgage payment.

 

Without knowing it, I’d embraced a strategy called “failing forward,” one that has shrinks, career coaches and business gurus buzzing. Failing isn’t a catastrophe, the newthink goes; it’s an integral part of success. Let me repeat: Failure is integral to success. “It’s perfectly normal to feel terrible in the moment when it happens,” says Carol Dweck, Ph.D., a psychologist at Stanford University, who has spent her career studying success. “But failure can propel you to do great things.”

 

The concept of failing forward is powered by the tech-scene sensibility—test/fail/move on—and the realities of social media, where your layoff is immortalized on Google and your newly single status is broadcast on Facebook. “Thanks to the Internet, we know about everybody’s stumbles as well as their successes, and they know about ours,” says Scott Adams, author of the new book How to Fail at Almost Everything and Still Win Big. “We all just look human now, so failure becomes less embarrassing.”

Under the wind and rain, do not know can be so the clarity of the city DR-MAX. I've been thinking, is doomed to live in the dust in the dust and then buried in this piece of the dust, always thought that the world will always have been chaotic, always can't distinguish true and false, think that they have become accustomed to narrow her eyes with a deep look on coldly.

Quiet days, almost forget there is a thing called time on front, applying departure time and time again, again and again with the daydream with sadness about missing time.

Quiet days, yet always remember that writes a word left by the so-called "eternal", he told me to remember, a lifetime in mind, but I don't know what it is now.

Why do you want to remember me? From you with your memory from my world run away at that moment, thought has pause. I don't know you what kind of eternal, you let me keep the "eternal", now has become a noun, no story can continue Shopping in Hong Kong.

When you leave, all have been away, I didn't leave you anything. The thinking has gone forever buried in the soil.

After a storm comes a calm, please don't be stubborn think can leave a mottled memories, after a few days after what will top up, volatile, have got wet in the rain and how, also can't accept sun is burning and the evaporation is ultimately to dissipate into smoke You beauty .

The city of rain, also would restore old appearance, would fall with smoke...
