Using fork, smash ripe bananas. Place them in the large bowl.
Melt butter (margarine) and add to bananas. Mix with fork.
 Beat the egg(s), add the egg(s) to banana mix.
 Add sugar, vanilla, baking soda, salt. Add the flour last, to mix.
Place cupcake liners in cupcake pan. Then put some batter in a zip lock bag.
 Cut a little of a corner of the bag.  Squeeze the bag filling the cup with batter on 2/3 .
Bake in  the oven for 15-18 min. To check if the cupcakes are done, insert a wooden toothpick and if toothpick is dry, the banana bread is ready.

Heart Eggs

For Mother's Day I made my mom Heart Eggs for breakfast.
I used 1 hot dog and  2 eggs.
First, cut the hot dog in half, then cut the half longwise leaving 1/2".
Then, curve the hot dog backwards forming a heart shape.
 Using a tooth pick, join the ends.
Place the  hearts on the hot pan with a little of oil, cut side down. Crack one egg in. In 2 minutes, flip the eggs over...
 P.S. it is really good with cheese on top.
