Fresh Peach Cake

1/4 pound (1 stick) unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 1/2 cups sugar, divided
2 extra-large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup sour cream, at room temperature
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 cup chopped pecans
Watch how to make this recipe
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch square baking pan.

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and 1 cup of the sugar for 3 to 5 minutes on medium-high speed, until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, then the sour cream and vanilla, and mix until the batter is smooth. In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. With the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the batter and mix just until combined. In a small bowl, combine the remaining 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon.

Spread half of the batter evenly in the pan. Top with half of the peaches, then sprinkle with two-thirds of the sugar mixture. Spread the remaining batter on top, arrange the remaining peaches on top, and sprinkle with the remaining sugar mixture and the pecans.

Bake the cake for 45 to 55 minutes, until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm or at room temperature.

KeriCure Inc. announces Patent Approval: Nanoparticles for Drug-Delivery


KeriCure Inc. announces Patent Approval: Nanoparticles for Drug-Delivery

Today, with USPTO approval, this pioneering biotechnology company can now offer a novel drug-delivery platform to anyone looking for a long term drug delivery in an FDA cleared polymer-based nanoparticle system.

Tampa, Florida – KeriCure’s exclusively licensed patent from the University of South Florida for the company’s platform nanoparticle drug delivery technology was granted a Notice of Allowance from the USPTO on June 5, 2015. The patent encompasses a large breadth of bioactive agents that can be incorporated into KeriCure’s novel polymer-based nanoparticles for enhanced bioavailable, long term delivery in a non-degradable polymer vehicle that is currently FDA cleared for topical applications.

The company believes that the allowance of this patent will open new doors for partnerships with pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

“We see the value in working with established companies to provide a unique formulation for their bioactives, whether it be a novel anti-cancer drug, or a new psoriasis agent, giving them an edge in the market and better performance for their active ingredient,” says Dr. Kerriann Greenhalgh, Founder and CEO of KeriCure Inc.

With the ability to provide a complete wound care solution in the professional, consumer and animal health markets, the official allowance of this patent gives KeriCure the opening to engage and develop new products for other companies to enhance their drug-delivery methods.

“Our goal is to develop custom formulas for companies looking to maintain sustained activity of their active ingredient on biological and medical device surfaces including the skin, implants and dressings, as an example.”

KeriCure continues to formulate new versions of their flagship product, Natural Seal Liquid Bandage, focusing on both naturally occurring and pharmaceutical grade additives to enhance the inherent would healing properties of Natural Seal. R&D is currently underway for three new formulations to extend the current product offerings. Additional medical applications are also being investigated by the company, including a formulation that helps to soothe and protect outbreaks of eczema and psoriasis, often troubling skin conditions that plague 10-20% of the population.

“We have continued research and development while patiently awaiting the patent approval, and hope to release a brand new formula this year that will feature an antibacterial additive in the liquid bandage.”

Dr. Greenhalgh founded KeriCure after being personally affected by inadequate wound care available over the counter when her husband got a small cut on his hand that developed into a serious MRSA (resistant Staph) infection and required surgery to treat. After her husband almost lost the use of his entire hand from a simple cut, Dr. Greenhalgh became determined to bring effective wound care and protection against germs to people and their pets.

KeriCure’s product offering currently consists of KeriCure’s Natural Seal™ Liquid Bandage, Natural Seal™ On-the-Go Liquid Bandage, KeriCure Skin Protectant (for tattoo protection), Tough Seal™ Liquid Bandage for Companion Pet Use and Champion Seal™ Liquid Bandage for the equine/livestock market. KeriCure launched their professional line of liquid bandage products this year under the name Advanced Seal, and is currently in use by physicians in the Tampa Bay area in a variety of cosmetic, dermatological, burn and wound care, and post-surgical applications. KeriCure products can be found in over 2,000 retail locations throughout the US, including Publix, Meijer, Marsh, Price Chopper, Richard’s Foodporium, Earth Origins, and other natural grocery stores. KeriCure’s website allows you to enter your zip code at to find a local store carrying their products.


KeriCure is currently in a Series A fundraise, with investment opportunities still available. Contact them at for details.

MelanomaSkin cancer is the most common type of cancer in the United States. Although some people are at a higher risk of having skin cancer, anyone can get it. It is important to know that the main cause of skin cancer is from ultraviolet (UV) light, which is emitted from the sun’s rays or from artificial light sources, like tanning beds.
Below you will find some information from the Center for Disease Control and Prevention about skin cancer symptoms and also the measures you can take to prevent it.


What Are the Symptoms of Skin Cancer?

A change in your skin is the most common sign of skin cancer. This could be a new growth, a sore that Skin Chartdoesn’t heal, or a change in a mole. Not all skin cancers look the same.
A simple way to remember the signs of melanoma is to remember the A-B-C-D-Es of melanoma—
• “A” stands for asymmetrical. Does the mole or spot have an irregular shape with two parts that look very different?
• “B” stands for border. Is the border irregular or jagged?
• “C” is for color. Is the color uneven?
• “D” is for diameter. Is the mole or spot larger than the size of a pea?
• “E” is for evolving. Has the mole or spot changed during the past few weeks or months?
Talk to your doctor if you notice changes in your skin such as a new growth, a sore that doesn’t heal, a change in an old growth, or any of the A-B-C-D-Es of melanoma.

What Can I Do to Reduce the Risk?
sun protectionCDC recommends easy options for protection from UV radiation

• Stay in the shade, especially during midday hours.
• Wear clothing that covers your arms and legs.
• Wear a hat with a wide brim to shade your face, head, ears, and neck.
• Wear sunglasses that wrap around and block both UVA and UVB rays.
• Use sunscreen with sun protection factor (SPF) 15 or higher, and both UVA and UVB protection.
• Avoid indoor tanning.

Grilled Shrimp with Mango, Lime and Radish Salsa

12 large shrimp
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper

2 limes
2 mangoes, diced
4 to 5 red radishes, diced
1 red onion, diced
1 tablespoon chili powder
1/2 bunch fresh cilantro leaves, chopped
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
In a large bowl, toss the prawns with the olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and pepper. Let marinate for about a half hour while you heat up the grill. Grill prawns on each side until they turn pink, about 5 minutes depending on size.

Remove the peel and pith from the limes and cut between the membranes to remove the segments. Put these “supremes” into a bowl and squeeze over the juice from the membranes. Add the remaining ingredients and mix; season with salt and pepper. Place warm grilled prawns on a platter and top with salsa.

Turkey Burgers

Ingredients turkey-burgers_s4x3.jpg.rend.sni12col.landscape
1 1/2 pounds 90-percent lean, freshly ground turkey (not all white meat), chilled
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
8 slices goat cheese, sliced 1/2-inch thick
4 sesame seed hamburger buns, split and lightly grilled
Watercress, for serving

Meyer Lemon-Honey Mustard:
1/4 cup Dijon mustard
1 heaping tablespoon clover honey
1 tablespoon fresh orange juice
1/2 teaspoon lemon zest
1 teaspoon fresh Meyer lemon juice, from Meyer lemons, if possible
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

For the Meyer lemon-honey mustard: Whisk together in a small bowl the mustard, honey, orange juice, lemon zest, lemon juice and season with salt and pepper. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes and up to 24 hours to allow the flavors to meld.

For the burgers: Preheat the grill to high. Form the meat into four 6-ounce burgers. If you are not going to cook right away, keep the burgers cold in the refrigerator. Sprinkle the burgers on both sides with salt and pepper. Grill until cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes on each side. During the last minutes of cooking, add 2 slices of cheese to each burger, cover the grill and let the cheese soften slightly, about 1 minute. Put the burgers on the buns, drizzle with some of the Meyer lemon-honey mustard and top with a few sprigs of watercress. Serve with extra mustard on the side.

Cook’s Note: If you are unable to find Meyer lemons, mix 1/2 teaspoon fresh orange juice and 1/2 teaspoon fresh lemon juice.
